Hello Hello!!

A question for those with iPod knowledge @ 01:15 pm

fiveandfour:

So I finally obtained a beautiful and shiny U2 iPod and now I'm wondering: are there any protective cases that coordinate nicely with the black and red color scheme out there?  I've looked in the physical Apple store in my neighborhood and poked around a little online, but haven't found anything yet that seems just right. 

Has anyone else found something that looks particularly good with this iPod?  In just a few days of use I already see small scratches appearing and it's breaking my heart!

I put a clear silicone cover on it from the ipod store, and that words great. still can see it all, but it's protected. if you buy a black leather case, it will have the click wheel part cut out so you can see the red, and therefore it will still be red and black, but you'll not see the silver part of the back. a couple of my friends have sewn/knitted/whatever their own ipod covers and that looks nice too.

^ that is the case i have for my U2iPod. it is amazing.
you can still see the front and back of the iPod and use it while its in the case.
you can pretty much throw your iPod at the ground and nothing will happen to it...but i dont recommend experimenting! ...just in case. :)

the only problem ive had is that the iTrip doesnt fit while the case is on, but thats ok bc i only use the iTrip in my car.

and definately get the black one, bc i have the white, and it gets really dirty... :(

I have a clear, sillicone case for my mini and I HATE it. The texture is terrible. Anyway, I believe that on Apple's online store there is a case specifically for the U2pods.

I think I saw that one in the store and thought it would work nicely, but my husband thought it wouldn't work very well so I put it back. Guess he was right.

I have a black silicone case. But it offers no click-wheel and no screen-protection. I might buy an iPod sock or some sort of knitted case just for it to travel in. Whatever you end up getting, make sure it protects all parts, or buy the several pieces that will. Screen protectors and click wheel guards are sometimes sold as separate accessories to more popular cases. They get you coming and going. *le sigh*

Yeah, I'm just anal enough to want the whole thing protected, click wheel and wall. I was grinding my teeth in frustration at my husband for peeling off the stuff that came with it since it seemed such a convenient way to keep it even a little protected until we found a case. But ::deep breaths:: not everyone is quite so annoyed by these things as me, so I do my best to forebear :).

I'll have to look some more. The person at my local Apple store who helped us didn't even know about the U2 iPod - my husband had to educate her about it!!! Grrr. We went back later to look for a case and saw a great selection of covers for the minis, and not much for the standard size. I swear I've looked at all 156 of the covers advertised at the Apple site and don't see one specifically for the U2 iPod. Seems such an obvious thing, it must still exist somewhere!

I have a clear cover on mine. It protects the screen and only has the wheel open. you can see everything still too. Its perfect. I got it from Target.
