Default Three New Zune Cases From Belkin

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://catalog.belkin.com/Zune/accessories/' target='_blank'>http://catalog.belkin.com/Zune/accessories/</a><br /><br /></div><em>&ldquo;Belkin has released a range of new cases for the Zune portable media players. Each case is made with a specific use in mind, but all aim to protect the player and its screen while making controls and connections easily accessible. Designed for use during activities (e.g. exercise) is the Sports Armband for the Zune 80GB, it is made of lightweight and stretchable neoprene material with a Velcro closure and is hand-washable. In addition, the armband case features a key pocket as well as reflective material strips for safety at night or in dim lighting conditions. A new water-resistant case is also offered for the 4GB or 8GB version of the Zune.&rdquo;</em> - <a href="http://www.electronista.com/articles/08/04/21/belkin.intros.zune.cases/">Electronista</a><br /><br /><center><img border="0" alt="" src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com//zt/auto/1208830906.usr307.png" /></center><br /><br />I really <a href="http://catalog.belkin.com/Zune/accessories/">like what I see</a> of the new cases. It&rsquo;s really just three new cases with a version for both the Zune 4/8 and the Zune 80. I don&rsquo;t really want to run with my Zune 80 but I would definitely consider a Zune 4 for working out with this armband. I love that it has the key pouch on it since that&rsquo;s always a pain to deal with. I&rsquo;ve been looking for a case for my Zune (I want to avoid what I did to my Zune 30 when I scratched the screen while working out) and I may have to pick one of these up to try out!

These look pretty good! Although I have to admit I don't carry either of my Zunes in cases because I don't want to add bulk to them...

I don't want to add bulk but I'd rather them not be damaged

I'm looking forward to getting a new 80 with my tax return money and i could use a case like the arm one for when i go out skating (board, not blade or roller).

I usually just toss my 30 in my back pocket and i've gotten pretty used to its dimensions so the added girth of the case wouldn't be a real issue.

side note: my 30 has been through some tough falls doing this; especially when i fall on my butt and its there for "cushioning"...

I have one of the armband ones for my 8G Zune. I am a pasty white office type, i.e. not a power lifter. The band fits around my arm, but I don't have a lot to spare. So if you are pretty buff, I'd make sure you can try one on, or take it back if it doesn't fit.

I also find it a bit awkward, since MS chose to put the earphone jack, and of course, the sync/charge connector on the bottom of the unit. There is a hole at the bottom for the earphones, but you have to remove to recharge, which the headphone arrangement makes a bit more challenging. I'm considering putting mine in upside down. Really would have been nice if MS had included BT in these units.

Must say it is well built, though.
