Is there any iPhone 4S case out there that works with a standard headphone jack?

    I am having major issues trying to find a case that would let me use a standard headphone jack with my iPhone. I have a pair of Grado SR80s that I cannot use with my current case, as well as my Klipsch speakers. I'm looking for a case that has a larger cutout for headphones... does this exist? I currently have an Otterbox Commuter.

    There's a wide variety of 3.5mm plug sizes (not the plug itself but the head of the plug). What dimensions do you consider to be "standard"? Don't mistake "what I use" for "standard". Some plugs fit my case. Some do not.

    What is a "standard headphone jack?" For some, the Apple earbud is standard because it's so common.

    The earbuds that come with the iPhone are more narrow around the jack. Many other headphones are fatter around the jack and don't fit.

    I can safely say the Graft Concepts Leverage case will NOT work with a standard headphone jack.

    This has bugged me so much, that I'm considering buying a new case already!

    Incase Snap, my Grado SR60 fits no problem. I wanted the Elago S4 but wasn't too sure about the cutout for my headphones. I got one off ebay for $20. Make sure its genuine and that it will fit the new 4S.

    I was actually looking at the Elago S4 case... I want one in orange :D It's only $10 on Amazon, so I was thinking about taking a shot at it anyway.
