The Good

  • Tough clear case. Four convenient attachments. Attachment clips fit snugly and securely. High quality materials throughout.

The Bad

  • None.

There is no doubt that the iPod nano is beautiful, so people are keen to both personalize and protect their iPods. GizMac's Titan Clear Case for the 2nd generation Nano is the perfect choice for those owners who can hardly bear to take their iPod nano out of its package.

Complete Package

The Titan Clear Case is a complete accessory and protection package that includes a polycarbonate case, armband with elastic Velcro, carabiner clip, rotating belt clip, double weave lanyard, and thin film click wheel protector. The case displays the iPod's beauty and protects it at the same time. For a great price you get four ways to carry or wear your iPod nano safely and conveniently.

A Snap to Use

It is very simple to install the iPod nano into the Titan Clear Case. First, the thin film click wheel protector is peeled from its backing and applied over the Click Wheel. The clear click wheel protector is non-adhesive and does not damage or mark the iPod. The second step is to snap the iPod nano into the front of the case, you just align the iPod ports with the cutouts. The back of the case then snaps snugly into place, encasing the iPod nano. The notched halves of the case fit together tightly, like an exoskeleton, so the iPod nano does not slip or fall out. The polycarbonate case surrounds the device with nearly 360 of protection from scratches and other damage from regular use, with full convenient access to the hold button, Click Wheel, data port, and earphone jack.

In the final step, you attach the armband, carabiner, belt clip, or lanyard. The armband attachment consists of a plastic buckle that snaps onto the case and an elastic Velcro armband. The carabiner and lanyard share an attachment that snaps onto the case. The belt clip is a single piece that also snaps to the case. When attachments are in place, small tabs snap into holes in the notches mentioned previously. Two holes per side hold them securely in place. The attachments fit as tightly as the two pieces of the clear case, so they won't dislodge during normal use, yet they are easily removed.

Tough Case

The polycarbonate case is tough, but it is not indestructible. In fact, the GizMac product instructions clearly warn, "Do not slide Nano into case or you will scratch your case." Polycarbonate is used in shatterproof windows and lightweight eyeglass lenses. I suspect that if you drop the Titan, the case might crack, chip or break, but that's better than damaging your iPod, which is, of course, the purpose of the Titan Clear Case. While an older Nano looks like it fits into the polycarbonate case, it does not. GizMac still sells aluminum cases for the first generation iPod nano.

Everything included and great price

The Titan Clear Case is a complete solution for the 2nd generation iPod Nano. It provides everything you need to enjoy your device while displaying its beauty, as though it were still in its original packaging. The crystal clear protective case and the included four attachments make it considerably more convenient to use. Whatever your activity, the Titan Clear Case includes everything you need.
