Reviewers like these things about the Seidio Obex

  • Many reviewers commend the Seidio Obex case is built to be everything-proof, most notably waterproof.
  • Reviewers praised this fully protective case that claims military standard drop protection.
  • Testers pointed out that it comes with a waterproof headphone adapter, as well.
  • Reviewers noted that it has no longer a latch at the bottom of Obex covering its ports — this is now done more simply with rubber port protectors, which makes both the headphone and Lightning ports more easily accessible.
  • Reviewers pointed out the presence of rubber plugs that keep the ports sealed against water and dust.
  • They noticed that it comes with a holster clip for belt mounting.
  • Several testers also indicated that it needs to be properly installed in order to maintain waterproofness.
  • Other users found that it is much easier to install than some competing cases.
  • Testers pointed out that the belt clip swivels and that the holster locks onto the case.

Reviewers don’t like these things

  • A reviewer thought that sound is still muffled a bit with the case.
  • A tester said that the Touch ID cover doesn’t always appropriately read, making unlocking the iPhone a bit tricky at times.

The actual phone functionality was great. I could hear out of the speakers – both the bottom and ear speakers – without losing any quality. The microphone was the same way.
