Solid but flawed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: MiniSuit JAZZ Slim Shell Case with Belt Clip + Screen Guard for iPod Nano 7 (Rubberized Green) (Electronics)
The case is a great colour and is a nice rubberised quality feel. It fits snugly but is let down by what I consider 2 huge flaws. Firstly, the way the ipod fits into the case means the headphone out socket is facing downwards, away from the body if you have it clipped onto your waistband. This might be fine if you use bluetooth headphones but poor if you still used wired headphones. Secondly, the 'wrap around' of the case is flush in height with the screen rather than raised above the screen. This means if you place your ipod face down on a table, it will still rest on the screen and not the edge of the case/cover. For the price I would want them have to thought it out a little more.

A good case should improve the usability and ergonomics for all users. In my opinion the case could have been designed so that the nano could be placed "bottom up" so to speak on the belt clip (as many other cases are). As it is, in my opinion wired headphones are more difficult to use. But this review is just there to assist others to make up their minds - maybe they will be fine with it but at least they have the information!

I agree with the OP.
Think about the ergonomics, when it's on your belt and you look down to your belt clip with this clip it would be upside down (with the headphones out of the back. Whereas if this clip allowed you to place the iPod in the other way up, the it will appear the correct way up, and the headphones come out towards you. Makes sense when you think about it. (Think Nurses watches... they are upside down for a reason)

You can always clip it on upside down - on your belt - or to the bottom of your top.

You could do, I guess. But, don't know about yours, but mine really is not tight enough, and the last thing I want is to risk it falling off and getting lost!

You could just put the iPod into the case the other way up. Mine fits plenty snug enough to do so.
This will mean that the volume buttons are not exposed, but considering most wired headphones nowadays use an in-line remote then controlling volume shouldn't be an issue.
Just a thought
