    I got the case when I got the touchpad and imediately dropped it in it, I have fears of damage and scratches, and I quite like it, feels fairly good in the hand and doesnt add much gurth to the touchpad.

    HOWEVER, I have a pair of cheap panasonic headphones (40ish dollars) that are all right, well they work in a pinch, and I also have a pair of Sure 215s and due to the size of the connector housing it will not fit. For my home use I also have a set of modded Grado Sr80s and that connector also will not fit through the case- the holes too small and the case too thick. Now the 2 latter sound MUCH better and with the touchpad, beats and in general great quality sound its a great disapointment to me that I cant use my better headphones.

    I've considered taking a knife like object to it but I do not see that happening, dont want to butcher my case. I cant be the only one with this problem, any non knife solutions?

    Edit: Awwwww, the shures sound so good too. And game of thrones is a great tv show, even better book

    You might see if an extension adapter like one of these will fit, or could be cut down to do so:

    when attach to an adapter, will the sound quality be reduced?

    I don't understand this either. I'm planning on picking up some of these next time they go on sale for $25. Looks like it may not be an issue with this specific pair of earbuds, but I have had issues with other adapters. Think I may go taking a well sharpened knife to the case if I have to. I think it's the only way out until HP decides to make the outside of future cases concave to fit other adapters.

    I have the same thing.. I usually just pull back the corner when I plug in headphones. I don't use them often, so it's a nuisance, but workable.. if you used them a lot, it could be a real problem. I thought about enlarging the hole, but it looks like it could leave that section of the case weakened.

    I have the same problem with my m50s, it drives me nuts but I just take the corner out of the case and deal with it like a grown up.

    I'm considering trying to cut away at the area around the headphone port, understandably I'm a little worried I'll screw up the case.

    i tried this adapater
    http://www.monoprice.com/products/product.asp?p_id=7130 but it didn't work. Any other ideas or even recommended highend headphones that do work? I have the shures 5 series and I'm really sad i cant use them with my Touchpad.

    Folks,

    Same here with my pair of Shure e4c. However, the included Level Attenuator PA235 virtually serves as an extension cable and fits.

    Hey, I also have ATH m50's! I was reading this thread before my case arrived and unfortunately I also ran into this issue. I received the case for free though, so maybe I'll take a knife to it
