Best cases for protecting your big, expensive headphones

by John_A


You spent a lot of money picking up the perfect headphones; now it’s now time to protect your investment with a carrying case. Popular models like the ATH-M50x and Sony’s MDR7506 come with a pouch that doesn’t quite hold up to the rigors of everyday use. That’s why you should consider picking up the Slappa HardBody Pro Case. The hard shell case is much more durable, and offers great protection for your audio gear. Here are some other options.

Our pick

Slappa HardBody Pro Case


If you’re using the ATH-M50x, MDR7506, HD518, or any other large headphone, your search for a hard shell case ends here. Slappa’s case offers a rugged exterior that is water-resistant, and the interior is lined with velveteen to prevent any scratches. The durable design combined with the quality of the materials used make this the go-to choice to protect your headphones.

For large headphones

Geekria HippoCase


If the Slappa case doesn’t fit your headphones, then this Geekria option should do the job. The HippoCase has more than enough room to accommodate the largest of headphones, and you also get a pouch for cables, DACs, or other accessories. The sturdy construction of the case and the generous amount of padding on the inside makes it an ideal choice for the likes of the AKG K702, HiFiMan HE400S, and other large headphones.

Versatile option

Headcase Audio Protective Case


Headcase Audio’s offering is a semi-hard-shell case easily fits your headphones, and there’s also an internal case that’s designed to hold cables. The case is quite compact, but you get the option to remove the padding at the front to accommodate larger headphones.

Also great

Caseling Hard Headphone Case


The Caseling hardshell case is large enough to fit an ATH-M50x along with both of the bundled cables, so there’s no shortage of room to offer. At $13, it is also one of the more affordable options for a hard shell case. The outer layer is not entirely rigid, the interior is lined, and the case is water-resistant.

Perfect for Sennheiser

LTGEM Hard Shell Case


The LTGEM case is designed to fit most Sennheiser headphones, and the EVA case is resistant to the elements. The hard shell combined with the lined interior should provide an adequate amount of protection for your audio gear, and the case will easily fit a Sennheiser HD598 along with the cables.
