    So I dropped my iPhone on it's edge and it didn't do too much damage. But the headphone jack is now misshapen and I can't fit my headphones in there.

    I know cases like Mophie's get a lot of functionality by going through the lightning cable port, but unfortunately they still leave an opening for the native headphone jack.

    Do any case's replace the headphone jack by using the lightning port? Or are there any other accessories that can help me get around not having a functional headphone jack? I use my iPhone a lot with headphones, in the car, etc. and I am really eager to find some workaround without having to replace my phone.

    You can purchase a set of bluetooth headphones. I have tried many different ones over the years. SOL Republic Tracks Air are pretty incredible with great sound, 14 hour battery life and about 150' range.

    You can get something like this. You plug your headphones into this and put it in your pocket. Pair it with your iPhone and play music wirelessly. It has many other uses as well:
