Does anybody else who owns the smart case notice that the headphone hole cutout is not centered? On my case the headphone hole is positioned at the bottom of the cutout. Is this what everyone else is seeing? I'm just wondering if I should take it back for a replacement. Other than the cutout for the headphones I'm liking the case so far.

Same on rMini version

It's the same on mine. I think this is deliberate to allow slightly wider headphone barrels to fit. The port is more towards the back of the case which slopes away because of the shape of the case.

Got it... good to know that way I don't have to waste time going back to a store. I did read review on the apple website where somebody used a 3/4" drill bit to make the hole larger. I may give it a try because some of my headphones have larger jacks.
