I had been using a dock adaptor to dock my itouch 5 on my 30 pin alarm clock. I bought Apples lightening adaptor so I could do this, but now with the otter box case the adaptor will no longer fit, so if I use the case I can not use the alarm clock or sound bar, so not real happy about that. Now I will have to buy the 30 pin to 8 pin cord and its only like 5 inches long, so not sure that will even work. So if you want to dock it, then the otter box is not the case for you. Also there is a slight flaw in the part that covers the screen, a smudge that won't come off and around the edge on one side, something like a scratch, both are annoying.
