well i got my first iphone, iphone 4s form verizon, 99 cents with contract. im happy. but now for a case. checked all over the internet and it seems the lifeproof is the one. but now i find it distorts the sound badly. is this a trade off for a protective cover, also ordered a lifeproof case for my wifes iphone 5c. are all the cases going to distort the sound ?

My wife has a case on her iPhone 4 and it does not distort the sound. I know lots of folks who have various types of cases on their iPhones and have not complained about sound distortion. iPhone cases may cause other problems like making the phone heavier and thicker but so far I don't know of anyone complaining about sound.

LOL, yeah.... wearing your hearing aids should help. I just hope the VA gives you a decent pair and not ones made in the last century.

Well, that sounds good... no pun intended. I'm an old retired military guy who doesn't have much faith in the VA, but I have to admit I have had pretty good medical care and free prescriptions all these years.

That's quite a combo - Viagra and hearing aids. Anyway, I hope you put both to good use.

You socialists you!!

Anyway, I've avoided the heavy-duty cases for iPhones so I can't speak to how much they muffle or distort the sound. I've gotten along with just a silicon case for the back that has "lip" round the front so that if I ever drop it (hasn't happened yet), the glass on the front is somewhat protected from breaking.

Obviously I try to be careful by bearing in mind how much a replacement will cost, which I think has also helped me avoid dropping it or leaving it on the car roof or all the other common things people do to their iPhones. I know that "policy" won't cover "acts of God" or what have you but (knock wood) I've lived a charmed life so far.

I have the Lifeproof Nuud case on my 5s and find no distortion on normal phone calls. I suspect trying to play music through the phone's speaker would be disappointing.
