What a ridiculous question! That depends on the efficiency of the headphones, the isolation of the headphones, your location, and the hearing (or lack thereof) of the person listening.

A rediculous question from Born Again??? NOOOOOO WAY!

I agree though, many people are ruining ears or using shitty headphones that leak sound.

I'm curious, have you dropped your phone (for ex. on pavement) with wrapsol on it?

haven't dropped it but I can say I dropped my iphone 4 a few times (twice in a single hour when I was using it as a flashlight while working on my truck)... never had a single issue with it. Only once got a small nick between where the side and the front of the phone was...

Cool, thanks. I ordered a replacement after failing to install it well the first time. We'll see how it goes this time around...

I ordered one through Apple's site just today.. I don't expect to receive it for a while and expect to be disappointed and find out that it won't work with my cars iphone integration setups.

That vapor case on ebay for 15 bucks looks pretty cool.

Do the "shower install". Shut your bathroom doors, turn on the shower, let it steam up, and then put it on. The steam in the bathroom will prevent dust from floating around in the air and will keep it clean under the screen.

I plugged my phone right into my car, no worries.

Then again, the mustang has a USB port.

I've tried the tape method but never thought of using painters tape to remove the dust. Thanks for the video.

Controllable as long as it's hooked up through USB. Audio only with Bluetooth connection.
