Oh okay then. I just don't like to spend time on cables, every time roll them around my fingers and try to put them in the case properly, then fit the monitors in the case etc etc. I prefer carry something bigger with me actually. Since I am a student, I go everywhere with my backpack and there is always a space for that kind of things. I will probably either go for 1010 or 1020 then (after comparing size measurements). Thanks Mim

I think the 1010 case is the best for bulky universals (EX1000, 7550, TG334, Parterre) and customs; it's a case that is still small enough to be reasonably portable (the case FitEar use for the F111, 334 & Parterre (though I had one before those IEMs were released for my customs [ES3X])

  Hey guys,
 
I decided to buy a new case for my monitors, as you know Otter one is quite small and opening hurts my fingers even after using more than a month.
 
What I want is something bigger that I don't need to worry about the cable + if possible I would like to put a dap in it too. Something like let's say iPod Classic size or DX50 size. Which Pelican do you think would be the best for me?
 
I am not sure about that dap idea though, maybe I will just get something a bit bigger than Otter and keep the dap in my pocket. What other users suggest to me at this point?

 
 
An idea I "stole" from another Head-Fier, in another thread I read years ago.
Sorry, I can't remember to whom credit should be given.

Pelican 1015 Micro Case
Dry-Packs Plastic Canister
 
I can even fit in a Sansa Clip Zip. Everything is tight, but nothing is squashed:

  Wish at least I'd been thanked as well (specially knowing the 1010 is the better choice). Oh well...

I actually checked the dimensions of all of them and decided to go for 1020 as a safe choice and easy of use. The problem I have, I don't want to spend too much time on rolling the cables and fixing them in the case, paying attention all the time.
 
However, it doesn't prevent me to thank you specially music_4321, I appreciate your post and information but I feel like since I have always space in my backpack, a little bit bigger case is a better choice for me.

^   As time goes by and you get more used to your customs and realise you don't have to look after them as if they were a newborn child, you might reconsider getting a 1010 case — after all, these cases can be had had for ~$20 (delivered to good old Belgium). I can easily tell Mr Sinocelt is the sort of person that might be labelled a bit OTT (no offence meant to Mr Sinocelt).
