    Looks like a decent unit. Like all waterproof cases, however, I'm curious to see how the audio will perform through the earpiece and the microphone when making calls. The lifeproof case I used to have was absolutely terrible, so I got rid of it. Hopefully they've fixed some issues.

    Looks good but unfortunately they only have one color available on their website at the moment, ( charcoal and white) and I can't find it for sale anywhere else. I'd love to order it in black and gray.

    Sound is better than the lifeproof and Incipio Atlas. With the help of the hearing aid option in settings-accessiblity-hearing aids, I get a decent sound. The screen is not as good as the Atlas, due to it being plastic like the lifeproof fre, but I did get a better feel with no halo effect. These are my impression based on a few days of usage.

    I like to take video with my camera and I have rarely seen this remarked in other waterproof cases, but how's the video/sound quality with the case on. Often as sound is two ways, recording video is a bit muted. It was so with the Atlas :/

    Thanks, that's the same as their online offerings. I wonder why the initial run is so limited.
