Picture is worth a thousand words... Like the splash of color that the bumper adds. Also comes in other colors. In case you don't know, this brand calls the orange stuff D3O material that absorbs and spreads the impact force. You can also find a YouTube video that shows someone hammering his own finger that's wrapped with this D3O material. The volume and power buttons are hard to press, unless you use your fingernails. Not a deal breaker for me, but subtracts some points. Probably it's a requirement to use this type of resilient material for its impact-absorbing property.... The bottom part of the bumper is thin and elastic, so that means you can stretch it a little bit to fit in your big-plug earphones. I tried a Shure SE535 and yes it can be stretched. The bumper also includes a hard, transparent backplate to protect the back of the phone, but I did not install it. Without the extra thickness of the backplate, the bumper feels just a bit loose. I take it as an invitation to order and install a SGP glas.t or Bodyguardz Pure glass screen protector.
