ezSkin MAX Classic ships
ezGear today unveiled the ezSkin MAX Classic, a new case that adds protection to Apple's iPod classic portable media player. The ezSkin MAX Classic features silicon rubber to provide extra shock and drop protection, reinforcing each corner with extra padding without adding excess bulk. A screen protector made from hard clear plastic guards the delicate liquid crystal display, and the case comes with an ezSkin belt clip and neck strap. A click-wheel cover also protects the iPod from dirt and dust without hindering sensitivity, according to ezGear. The ezSkin MAX Classic is available for both 80GB and 160GB iPod Classic in Onyx and "frost white" for $35.
"Extra design time was put into this case to make sure it not only looks good, but meets the rigorous requirements of iPod owners," Charlie Bernstein said, president of ezGear.
The company released another new line of cases designed for Apple's iPod nano and iPod classic earlier this month, covering the players with silicone while offering access to all ports and buttons. ezGear maintains a large collection of cases for numerous iPod models, and continues to produce accessories for Apple's portable players.
