When you are traveling with some of your high end, high tech, and high priced gadgets it can sometimes be a little stressful. This situation is multiplied when you are taking your pc to a lan party or something similar. When you are doing all of this every piece or part has a chance of being damaged. Of course you’re going to focus on your monitor and tower, but what about everything else, specifically your headset? You wouldn’t want to get there any they are damaged would you? I know I wouldn’t. Slappa one of our lanparty sponsors was generous enough to send us out one of these HardBody Headphone cases. Its designed and made for headphones but it will work just as well with the addition of a microphone. Click to find out how it performed for us.

Packaging

Frankly you can’t have much simpler packaging. It consists of one thick piece of paper that you zip up into the case. There is the name of the product, the Slappa logo (I love the logo btw), and it is “DJ Certified”. On the back there is a bar code. The packaging is designed to be hung on peg hooks. Like I said before, very simple but it does get the job done.

Performance

Figuring out the best way to test the Hardbody case was the biggest challenge. To start I needed to find a headset to put into the case. I didn’t have to look far; you may remember that yesterday I reviewed the Cyber Snipa Sonar 5.1 headset. It’s a large headset, but folds up into a perfect size to fit in the Slappa Hardbody Headphone case. With the extra long cord included with the Sonar it is a tight fit inside of the case. As you can see below it is a tight fit, but it works well.

 

Now that we have it packed are securely we don’t have to worry about the headset being damaged. The strangest thing is the case itself looks so nice with its black rubberized exterior and the jersey lining and the Slappa logo. It looks so great that I’m almost afraid to damage the case while using it. Isn’t that a pickle, lol? But for 17.99 I would rather drop my headset in this case than without the case. The included removable carry strap also makes it a little easier to hold on.

 

Overall

After spending a few weeks with the Slappa Hardbody Headphone Case to store and transport my headset I have total faith that the Slappa Headphone Case would protect my headset. The biggest problem I have with the case is that it’s so nice looking that I’m afraid to damage it. I am very impressed with the style and build quality of Slappa products; I’m looking forward to working with them in the future with our lan party’s. You will be able to check some of their product out at the next 5 LanOC events! If you can’t wait until then make sure to check out their website to look at all of the other great Slappa gear. I don’t think you could go wrong with any of it!

You might call him obsessed or just a hardcore geek. Wes's obsession with gaming hardware and gadgets isn't anything new, he could be found taking things apart even as a child. When not poking around in PC's he can be found playing League of Legends, Awesomenauts, or Civilization 5 or watching a wide variety of TV shows and Movies. A car guy at heart, the same things that draw him into tweaking cars apply when building good looking fast computers.
