Yes, the QS1 have the semi-open charging case. But lemme ask you this. Since the majority of these TW cases aren’t even small enough to realistically carry in a pants pocket, why would a case having a flimsy plastic lid that can snap off really matter all that much? In fact, I’d rather have a case with no lid, than a case with a thin plastic lid. Besides being 1 more thing to break, having no lid makes taking the ear pieces in and out of the case that much faster and easier. Now, if the case was small enough to easily carry in my pocket, then yes I’d want one with a lid to keep dust and lint out. BTW, if you want a QS1 with a lid, get the QS2. It’s case has a lid, and it has a bigger battery vs the QS1.
