Belkin introduced a Sports Armband for Zune 4GB/8GB and Zune 80GB

Belkin_zune_case_armband_8gb_2

Here’s the last new Zune case from Belkin for tonight.

Belkin adapted its Sports armband for the second generation Zune players. The armband are still hand-washable and water-resistant (Be careful! It doesn’t make the Zune water-resistant!)

The case is made with a reflective material for use in the dark and has a useful key pocket.

Belkin offers a lifetime warranty with this product. Retail price is also $29.99.

A picture of the Zune 80 version is available after the jump.

Belkin: Remix Acrylic Case for Zune 4GB/8GB and Zune 80Gb

Belkin_zune_80gb_acrylic_case Part of the new second generation Zune case line-up, the “Remix” Acrylic Zune case is available for all new Zune players (4GB, 8GB and 80GB).  This form-fitted, metal-topped acrylic case has a detachable beltclip that also serves as a kickstand.

Just like the leather Zune case, the product gives complete access to navigation, ports and dock connector.

I’m personally not a big fan of acrylic cases, but I have to admit that, at least on the pictures, this one does look good.

The cases are available now on Belkin's website. Both models have a retail price of $29.99.

Check the Zune 4/8 version just after the break.

Belkin Released a Leather Sleeve for 4GB/8GB and 80GB Zune Players

Belkin_zune_8_leather_case_2 Belkin finally released new Zune cases for the 4GB/8GB and 80Gb Zune models.

The new Zune cases feature Velcro strap attachment to secure the Zune, and also offer a full screen protection. You also have access to all ports and control buttons at all time.

These top-loading cases are made from easy-care microfiber and leather. They also come with a belt clip.

The Zune 8 does look great in this case. Don’t you agree with me? I'm just not convinced yet that the control buttons will still be easy to use.

Check the cases on Belkin's website. They are available now with a retail price of $29.99.

There’s another picture after the jump.

Speck Case In Use

I've been using a Speck case for my Zune 80 for last few weeks, and I'm not really impressed.  The case is constructed from a silicone that reminds me of the stuff that they use for the seal on a scuba diving mask.  While it's certainly durable, the downside is that in winter, it acts a dust magnet.

Getting the Zune 80 into the case was simple enough.  I first placed it in, down side first.  The Speck case has special areas where the silicone thins for the Zunepad and the buttons.  The trouble came in when it was time to insert the included plastic screen cover.  The benefit is that Zune is now completely isolated and protected, but as you'll see from the images below, despite my best efforts, it hardly looked real good doing it, and the silicone failed to form a solid gasket around the screen cover.

On the rear is a plastic button.  To that attaches a removable belt clip.  Unlike some other cases, the clip is plenty secure, and didn't fall off during testing.  I also appreciate that access to the ports and hold button is preserved with appropriately placed cutouts.

I think that this product has some room for improvement.  For starters, I'll ditch the plastic screen cover.  After that, I'm contemplating taking an X-Acto knife to the Zunepad cutout as while I can scroll, it does slow me down as the silicone is not as frictionless.  I'll think of it as Speck case 2.0.

First Look: Zune 8 and Zune 80 Cases from Speck

Zune_80_cases

Good news guys! I just received samples of the new Zune 8 and Zune 80 cases from Speck. The ToughSkin cases look a lot like the ToughSkin cases already available for the Zune 30, but the  leather case  is actually very cool. I've already tried my red Zune 8 with it, and it fits like a charm. The metal beltclip is also extremely well designed. The Zune pad can easily be used, but the back and play/pause buttons are a bit tricky to use with this case. I'll be using the product for a few days, just to see if this is really an issue or not. Stay tuned.

That's it for now. I'll be reviewing the products later. Check after the jump for more pictures.

New Zune 80 and Zune 8 Cases from Agent 18

Agent_18_zune_case_3

Even though many new partners have signed the Zune third party accessory agreement recently, we haven't seen a lot of new gears hitting the market so far.

But thanks to Agent 18, this is about to change! The online store has a few neat cases that could fit your newly bought Zune 80 or Zune 8 perfectly.

Agent_18_zune_80_case_2The Dragon Shield, a clear polycarbonate case, has been designed to fit the Zune 80. The simple snap on/off design case comes with a screen protector and connectors are, of course,  accessible at all time.

If you're a Zune 4 or Zune 8 owner, you might be interested in the Scorpion Kit made for your Flash based Zune player. This is a soft silicon case with rugged diamond design. The case comes with a multi-position neoprene armband and an ultra thin stainless steel belt clip. Just as the Dragon Shield, all connectors are accessible at all time. The case looks really cool on the pictures...

Both cases are available online with a $24.95 price tag. Any takers? More pictures after the jump

Happy new year's eve to all!

New Zune 8 Cases from DLO

Zune_8_accessories DLO released a new Zune 8 case called the HipCase. The new leather sleeve-style case features a leather covered belt-clip and a full screen protection. All ports and controls are available at all time – which means you can plug in and sync your Zune without having to remove it from your HipCase.  The good news is we don’t need to connect the Zune to the PC to sync it anymore. Thanks to the awesome Zune wireless sync. Unfortunately, we still can’t charge the battery wirelessly… Maybe next year?

Back to more serious things, the HipCase cost $29.99 and is available online now.

Here are the highlights of this new Zune 8 case:

  • Sleek leather sleeve with soft, green fabric interior
  • Full-screen protection provides play-through access to Zune controls
  • Total access to Zune headphone jack and bottom connector port
  • Belt clip keeps Zune securely at your side
  • Compatible with Zune 4GB and 8GB players

More pictures after the jump.
