Smartphone Accessories: Seidio OBEX Waterproof Case

8/11/2013 08:00:00 PM Eastern

The OBEX, Latin for “barrier,” is a two-piece polycarbonate and thermoplastic polyurethane smartphone case from Seidio that exceeds the military standards test (MIL-STD-810G) for device protection, which evaluates the case from 6-foot drops at multiple angles.

The OBEX also earned an IP68 protection rating against complete submersion for 30 minutes in 1-meter- deep water. Waterproof membranes add a layer of protection over the phone’s speakers and microphone but do not diminish sound quality, Seidio said. A built-in screen protector promotes touch sensitivity and clarity. Rubber silicone stoppers are designed to keep external elements out of the headphone and USB ports and are easy to remove when needed.

“The OBEX is a game-changer in smartphone protection,” said David Chang, CEO of Seidio. “After rigorous testing, we are confident the OBEX lives up to its name in every way.”
