REVIEW: Dome8, the iPhone Case that Holds Headphones

I have a confession. Up until last week, I didn’t have any music on my phone. I never bothered to learn how to put it on, and besides, I’m always nearly at maximum capacity due to the amount of photos I take. I used to love listening to music, but since I’ve been a mum, that’s all gone out of the window. But that has all changed, thanks to a nifty new phone case I was sent to review by Dome8: it’s an iPhone Case that holds headphones*.
Dome8 iPhone 6 case with headphone holders

The Dome8 case has a ‘dome’ to wind the headphones around, before flipping down a protective flexible cover, and special holes in the back that fit your earbuds perfectly.

It means your headphones are kept tangle-free and (importantly for parents with bags full of kids’ snacks) crumb-free.

It comes in several different colours, and I got plain black, and it costs £14.95 with free delivery. There is a version for the iPhone 5/5s, and I got the 6/6s version.

The case is nice and lightweight but at the same time it feels like it would protect your phone if you dropped it (again, a plus point for parents!) as it has shock absorbers built in. Of course all of the buttons and charging ports are easily accessible and it’s easy to put on.

The edge is raised slightly, which means it helps protect your screen, and because it has the ‘dome’ on the back, I found it makes my phone more comfortable to hold. It also holds it a little higher off the table, meaning if your kids are prone to spilling drinks, you might be able to save your phone!

I gave the Dome8 to Ryan to try out as he is always using his headphones. He liked it, but found the dome made the phone a bit too wide to fit comfortably in his pocket along with his wallet – you can see it more than doubles the depth of the phone. Side of Dome8 black iPhone 6 caseSo we swapped it over to my phone and I am getting on really well with it, and it fits fine in my back pocket, which is where I normal keep it when I’m in the house. It wasn’t the easiest thing to swap the case from phone to phone, as it fits so snugly, but you would normally just put it on once so I don’t think that is a problem.

I like the way my headphones are now attached to my phone, waiting for me, not left behind or tangled at the bottom of my bag. And they aren’t just dangling about, getting in the way of the screen.

I now have a smart, protective case, and protected headphones, so I can actually listen to music – I’ve been using it on my way home from dropping the girls off at school and nursery on the days I’m working from home, and actually manage to get ready in time to walk!

*Please note I was sent this case for the purposes of this review, but all opinions, as always, are my own.

    This is the type of thing my hubby wou love. I often just listen to things on my phone without headphones but this could really come in handy! Great review 🙂

    That looks pretty cool! I have never worn headphones really though, and like you my phone is alaways telling me it is full. Last week I deleted 700 photos and it still wouldn’t let me take a damn picture lol! This would probably encourage me to listen to more though, I really miss my daily fix of music xx

      I think that is the fate of a blogger isn’t it – and I rarely delete anything, even though I have about 20 versions of each shot! I am really enjoying listening to music on my way back from the school and nursery run now xx

    I got a Spotify app on my phone so you can listen to music via the Internet without taking up any memory on your phone. I use it at work where they have wifi.

      Ah thanks that’s a great idea – I have put some on now but I have to say I don’t find iTunes the easiest thing to use, so that would work well! xx
