Greetings all, Don't worry, I did do an exhaustive search before I decided to start this thread. I came across many options for carbon fiber cases but it didn't seem like there was any common case recommendation. Below are the options I have found. They are organized in the order I am most likely to choose based on the comments in this thread. http://store.carbonfibergear.com/element-case-vapor-pro-blacked-out-carbon-fiber-iphone-4-case# http://www.eurokoncepts.com/100-Full-Carbon-Fiber-iPhone-4-4s-Case_p_75.html http://www.moncarbone.com/Product/Default.aspx http://www.droconcepts.com/iPhone4/carbon-fiber-iphone-4s-cases.html http://www.m-techdesigns.com/carbon-fibre-iphone4-cases/iPhone4-case-carbon I'm pretty intrigued by the Element Case Vapor Pro Black. It looks really sturdy. Plus, the reseller I'd be buying it from (one in link), is located right down the street from where I work so I could pick it up during a lunch break. Obviously, I wouldn't get it solely based on that. The other cases are quite nice too. I like those minimal ones that are 100% carbon fiber. The first carbon fiber case I found was the Dro Concepts one and I was very close to ordering when I read some threads where people had bad experiences. Also, I am not sure I like that clip in the middle of the Dro case, seems like it would make it wobble on a table or fit into my Pro Clip holder in my car awkwardly. One thing about all my options for cases is that the headphone port needs to be completely accessible meaning, it's not recessed in any way. I have wildly expensive and high quality in ear monitors with a custom made cable and I wouldn't want to use an adapter because that would introduce a weak link in the chain and potentially nullify the benefits of the custom headphone cord. Thoughts? I'm open to other carbon fiber case recommendations as well if anybody has any others I missed. Thanks.
