First impressions

When you buy a brand spanking new MP3 player and have spent a 3 figure sum on the gadget then I would expect that you would want to keep it well protected from damage. We might be very careful, but if you accidentally drop your MP3 player on the floor it will be covered in scratches, something that you will have to live with for the rest of its existence, unless of course you replace the outer casing. Fortunately there is a solution to this, a very simple clear polycarbonate case. Such cases are available all over the internet and just clip on and protect your expensive device from scratches.

It is worth paying for quality on an item like this, though as this is a cheap and cheerful product you are never going to have to shell out a great deal of cash for a stylish and good fitting case. The Contour Case is a great way to protect your MP3 player, and they are also available for other devices such as mobile phones. They are available in a range of colours including black, orange, green, purple and blue, or you could opt for a clear case. The completely clear case is a great option because a lot of MP3 players these days are brightly coloured.

Overall this is a good looking piece of kit and although it could easily get damaged from dropping the device, you would rather be replacing one of these hard plastic cases than an MP3 player!

My experience

I have owned a couple of these Contour Cases and they are great quality. The polycarbonate is quite rigid, though it does flex a small amount. This allows you to remove the cover if you wish, something which I do every few months. I have to remove the cover because dust and dirt always works its way in behind the case. Still, the fact it is quite firmly in position means that it isn't going to come off if you were to drop it.

In terms of protection for your MP3 player I would say that this particular case is fantastic. I have dropped my MP3 a few times now and one of these cases recently cracked when I dropped it on a hard tiled floor. This just proves how important these cases are, though although they will prevent any cosmetic damage to the body of your MP3 player they may not prevent the device breaking from the impact of the fall. Internals could easily be damaged from the sudden impact, though the only way to further protect the MP3 player would be to use a rubber case or even a leather wallet.

The design is very plain and simple, and although I am glad I didn't choose a coloured case you could easily personalise your MP3 player with the right case for your taste. The shape of the case is very cose to what the Mp3 player requires, so it wasn't a hastily designed accessory. This is great to know because it isn't going to cause problems with regards to pressing buttons or accessing ports.

This Contour Case is designed for the Apple iPod Touch (2G) and Apple iPod Nano (4G), though looking online you can buy similar cases for most Apple devices, including mobile phones.

According to a few sources online this product comes complete with a 1 year limited warranty. I have not read the small print, though considering the cost of the case I wouldn't be all that bothered about claiming unless the case arrived to me with a fault. Still, this gives peace of mind if you are considering taking the plunge.

Price and availability

Priced at between £5 and £8 this is a fair price for this type of accessory. You can buy more expensive covers and far cheaper covers, though you get what you pay for as far as I am concerned. The very cheap options are unlikely to fit very well or last a long time, so buy the right product and you won't go far wrong.

Final thoughts

I have had a very positive experience with the Contour Case, and were I to buy additional Apple devices I would definitely consider this brand and range of polycarbonate cases.

Overall I am very happy indeed with the quality of the case. It is very strong and will withstand a number of falls, though it is by no means unbreakable and will eventually meet its match. When outside on the street I wouldn't expect it to crack, though very hard surfaces may break the case but protect the body of the MP3 player. I am always very careful with my MP3 player and rarely have it on show. When I have dropped it the case has stood up well to the impact.
