Default Sony X1000 Leather Case

Is there any place to get the official leather case?

I broke my P2's screen while playing basketball and I've been considering X1000 as a replacement for awhile. Was going to wait for a price drop but I guess I have no choice now..

Noreve case is nice (had one for P2) but it's bit pricey and takes some time for colors other than black so I wanted to know whether SonyStyle will carry those cases or other places already has them in U.S.


Thanks!

Hi,'X' was for sale in the UK,before the USA.Still no official case's.You can get from Japan easy enough,but not cheap(about 32 if i remember rightly).Yet again prob won't be cheap when they arrive in UK etc.

Link:-

Normally arrives 3 days 'after' they post it,if fastest option used(seem's same for USA or UK,thats for the 'X'(& others)popular JVC FX500 headphones thou,but should be the same).
I could track order,guys good with communication etc.



Cheers BOB

Thank you for the link. It sounds like I could get one for $60 including shipping and Paypal fee.

Do you know if SonyStyle USA will carry the case?

Those photos are renderings. The walkman shown doesn't have the textured stone finish. I don't think they make one with chrome trim. No comment about the case.

The Jap models being sold domestically come with chrome trims.

go to pdair.com or amazon.com...they are selling and I got mine about 5 days after the orders. it's rather expensive that you have to pay over $30 w/ shipping.

I got this and it works perfect for me as it has all the openings for every button.

Those are 'Ice Black' limited edition that were being sold in Japan and Korea for a little while once launched. It's sold out though. I believe Japan only carries the red version.

As far as that case is concerned, that is also Japan version of the case. Other country has only the simple black/orange leather case.

I'm a Korean user and I've seen many of those Ice Black X1060 and leather case. It's just that I don't live in Korea so I don't have much choice.

I want to get the official version though, otherwise I would stick with Noreve. I had it for Samsung P2 and it's great handmade case. It took me a month to get the white case from France.
