    Does anyone know if headphone adapters (i.e. the one that comes with the Switcheasy Capsule Touch case) are readily available in stores?

    I too am looking for such a thing.

    I don't want to mess up the headphone jack anymore buy plugging/unplugging.

    I like SwitchEasy's but I want the head plug to be flat, much like this one. So I can't accidently push force it.

    If all you need is the adapter which allows any headset with a 3.5 mm male attachment to be used with the iPhone/iTouch, the adapters are readily available online (e.g, amazon.com). Radio Shack offers a Belkin adapter online, but not apparently in the store itself. Not sure about Best Buy.

    Here's the one I bought from Seidio:

    Actually I need one so I won't damage my Touch's plug. It'll happen if you plug/unplug your headphones constantly.

    I'm staying away from these types.

    Since you can damage your Touch more if you accidently push it.

    I haven't seen any other adapters on my searches. I like the Seidio model more so than the Belkin. My only use of this adapter will be to attach my car cassette adapter to the device. Are you concerned because of the Belkin's rigidity that it could snap if pressed too hard laterally?

    Eragon, again, those adapters can screw up the Touch. One mistake & it can bend the plug in the Touch. I'm trying to find the L-shape plug like the first pic I post.
