1.0 out of 5 stars Opening for headphone jack is too deep, February 2, 2013
This review is from: Lenmar Meridian 2300 mAh Battery Case for iPhone 5 and iPhone 5S Apple Certified MFI Approved Slim Extended Battery Charger iOS 7 iOS 8 AT&T T-Mobile Verizon Sprint Compatible, 100% Additional Battery Life, Black (Electronics)
If you look at pics of this device available online, you will see that when the earbud headset jack is inserted, there is hardly any connector still showing because the bottom of the charger case is so deep. That means that when you try to remove the headset, you will have to pull on the cord. Doesn't take a rocket scientist to realize the headset will fail quickly when this happens!
I emailed Lenmar to request their opinion, and not surprisingly didn't get a response.
This problem will be common to all iPhone 5 battery cases that have some depth on the bottom. It was never an issue when the headset sockets were on top on the earlier iPhones.
You'll have to buy an aftermarket cheap male-female adapter to protect your headset cord.
Meanwhile Apple will be laughing all the way to the bank.

Unless you're paying Apple for the male-to-female stereo extender, how is Apple making any money on this?
