    Got myself a shiny new iPhone 4 and Apple Bumper case.

    However, my Sennheiser CX300 headphones do not fit with the bumper case on.
    The plastic moulding above the jack on the headphones is too wide to properly fit into the hole in the bumper.

    Can anyone recommend some in-ear phones that DEFINITELY work with the Bumper case?

    Thanks for the reply, but I'm in the UK and can't find that many places that sell these.

    Does anyone have any other recommendations that can be bought (and exchanged if neccessary) in the UK?

    I have what I thought were CX 300 but looking at pics on the web (google "sennheiser cx 300") I seem to have CX 300-II. These fit fine as do my V-Moda Vibes (the one with the 45 degree jack). My Sennheiser HD-25s don't fit though.

    Monster Turbines work perfectly. The plug is the exact size as the hole in the case. I love my turbines. All metal earbuds, no plastic so nothing to break.

    Nice, I have some Image S2Ms and I think they have the same connector. Is the connector at a right angle?

    I own the Klipsch S4 and it does not use a right-angle plug. I don't have an iPhone 4 yet, but I doubt anything with a right-angle plug would work with a bumper case.

    If you use the apple store are your guide anything that was designed to plug into the headphone jack on an iPhone 2g will work with the ip4/bumper!

    I've used both NuForce and UltimateEars with the bumper on my i4. Had to push a little harder to seat the jack with the UE's, otherwise no problem with either.

    I just got mine in today and it works with the Shure SE110s. I'm pretty sure what the guy said above is correct.. that if they were built to work with the original iPhone's recessed port, it'll probably work with the bumper.

    V-Moda Remix headphones work with the bumper as do the Klipsch X-10s.

    Oops...sorry, I have the S4i (with the iPhone controls). I didn't realize that they changed the plug. The S4i is a straight plug...sorry for the misinformation.
