    I was going to use an old case similar to what you are looking at...Then read a post from someone about how they went to the gym with their new PowerBeats, leaving the charging case behind. When they got to the gym, the PowerBeats for some reason, wouldn't connect, and weren't showing up in the Bluetooth settings. The only way to get them reconnected was by using the charging case and going through the connect process again. Keep in mind, this was one person, but it might be a good idea to keep the charging case with you anyways...

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you need the case to use them. Once they are removed from the case and not being used for say 5 mins, they go to sleep, and the only way to wake them is to put them in the case again. And if that's correct, you can't just leave your house with these in your pocket sans-case and then use them whenever you want.

    You only need the case when you do the initial pairing, then just for charging after that. Mine have been sitting here, on my desk since I went to the gym early this morning. Used them a few times during the day to take some calls, took some breaks, where they have sat for over two or three hours. They just connected up fine, when I put them on and am listing to music now...

    I can confirm that they can be out of the case and still connect and work, unless of course a pairing issue occurs.

    sorry im not trying to bash you or anything but why are you looking for another case to carry your headphone rather than using the one that came with it. kinda redundant imo

    again. no offense.

    i know right. the battery constantly draining even tho it has a "sleep"

    Just to have a case that is slim enough to fit in my pocket during the day, then charge them in their battery case at home.

    So when the Pro's are out of case and not used for a period of time, rending them in sleep mode, how do you wake them again? Just by putting them in your ears?

    Yes...The Powerbeats, as well as Airpods, go to "sleep" after awhile of inactivity...But they aren't fully asleep, as the built in accelerometers and sensors are still awake. That is why, even if you don't use them, you will see small battery drainage over time. They fully wake themselves when you put them into your ears...the sensors detect this and fully wake them back up.

    Okay that's good. That means all you need is a slim case to carry them in for the day.

    I actually use the silicone case that came with both my Powerbeats3 and BeatsX. It works just fine for this, much smaller, and very pocket friendly. I simply turn them to opposite sides of one another (think Yin and Yang) with the eartips pointed inward, and they fit comfortably in the case and feel nice and secure in there. If you don't have one of these cases already, this is effectively an off brand version of the same thing: https://www.amazon.com/Geekria-Powe...coding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=15ZY28W7Z78VTBVYHPW2
