I work in construction / landscaping and NEEDED a case for my phone. When it comes to protection for my phone I always go with OtterBox and I saw this Armor series. Dust (sand, dirt, small particles, etc...) is one of my main concerns because there is so much where I work. With other cases dust gets in and ends up scratching the entire back side of my phone and the screen covers aren't very protective. With this armor series cases my phone is actually 100% dust proof and water proof,allowing me to use it while its raining, with wet/sandy/muddy/dirty hands. The only real problems I have with the case are first the size, its massive. I can barely fit it in most of my pants, a holster would help solve this problem. Second would be the phone call quality. Since its water proof all the mics are covered up, which muffles out almost all the sound. I have to use a bluetooth mic or speaker mode and yell into the mic, which is fine with me because I don't make many calls when I'm at work and if needed, I can take it off after. If you need protection and are willing to sacrifice phone call quality this is 100% worth it.
Pros: High quality, Durable, nearly indestructable
i use my stalk samsung headphones with this case all the time. the hole is pretty big but its deep, so a thicker cord like some AUX cords may not fit. Headphones fit and work just as good as without the case.
