Bandshell iPhone Case Review

http://t3.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:4RIDeUdjSYvtgM:http://blogs.babble.com/droolicious/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/band_shell_iphone_case.jpgWe’ve all done it. You’re listening to music on your iPhone’s built in speaker’s with your friends but the audio is barely penetrating through everyone’s voice. So what do you do? You cup your hands over your speakers and increase the volume. Bandshell has noticed this and created a built-in solution so you sit back and enjoy conversation while you favorite songs play in the background.

Conclusion:

The bandshell, though a fantastic idea, falls a bit short in it’s innovative design. It seeks to create built-in solutions to solve various problems including speaker amplification, video viewing, and protection. Unfortunately, it falls short in all of these departments. The speakers aren’t all that louder, the angle it lays on for video viewing is less than optimal, and the protection may be rugged but it’s very clumsy in it’s design. I can only recommend the bandshell case if you’re very curious to try this product out.

Pros
    •    Bulky, thorough protection
    •    There’s definitely a color to suit everyone here
Cons
    •    Somewhat clumsy design
    •    Less than preferable materials
    •    Flimsy sound door
    •    Doesn’t amplify all too much
    •    Flat-angle isn’t optimal for video viewing.
