    I bought one from my local Sony Centre yesterday. It came in a nice Sony box but it is in fact the proporter one. It has Sony stamped on the front but propota.com printed on the back. It's pretty cool, like it. After a days use I already feel I can throw it around a bit more, be a bit more relaxed with it! It almost bounces now...

    Awesome stuff - definitely want one. But does anyone know if it fits the HD5-H? I think the proportions are a teeny bit bigger... :suicide:

    Absolutely fantastic! Finally I won't need to carry around the felt case anymore. Thanks for the info!

    If you can't find anywhere and have a PayPal account, then I'll order 2 and forward one on to you if you want. Where do you live?

    According to this Engadget article (link), the HD5-H is only .6mm taller and .2mm thicker, so I'm assuming it should fit. I'm ordering one, so will let everyone know.

    Should be ok, because it isnt THAT tight a fit on my hd-5. It grips and clings well, because it is neoprene rubber, but it gives and stretches quite easily.

    I think you will be fine with it on an hd-5 H.

    They do mark and scratch very easily - luckily i got my rubber case quite soon, because i had been stuffing it my back pocket and it had already got some light scratching (nowhere near as bomb-proof as my net minidisc with its mag-alloy case - its in a different league build wise...)

    BTW - if you get the rubber case, the material will grip the inside of jeans pockets in an annoying way and doesnt always want to come out that easily :)

    Thank you very much for being willing to help! Nice. Unfortunately I don't have a Paypal account at the moment. I'll get some info on it. Maybe I'll just have to wait a bit longer.


    Well, seems that Sony is getting these from proporta as someone mentioned above.

    You can see that in the upper-right corner of the package...
    These are the same silicon skins. I think I'm getting one direclty from proporta.

    Can someone confirm if this comes with a visor/screen protector? Or its just a body silicon jacket?

    Cheers!

    Hmmm - just read on page 1 of this thread there were more people who discovered dents on the back of their HD5's that just seemed to have appeared out of nowhere. I can't get over how cheaply these babies were made and even more over the fact that I bought another one.

    Anyway - I was wondering if anybody else discovered any dents?

    I got my case and it fits perfectly. Highly recommend getting one, but if you do, get some screen protectors too.

    It was me that had the dents, but I carry mine in my front pocket and tend to walk into things. :rolleyes: Good thing I make sure to put the screen inwards. And they're not noticable with the case. :clap:

    Yep, I got the skin & screen protector a week after getting my HD5 (had to get them shipped to NZ). They are great - use the HD every day on the way to work (on my bike), when I get to work, and at home -no damage, and no worries.

    Yes. There is just a hole in the case that fits the shape of the screen. Screen protectors are cheap though, I got mine for a pound on eBay.
