Default Headphones won't plug into Spigen Slim Armor Case

So I use a pair of Audio Technica ATH-M50 headphones, I have the Spigen Slim Armor Case and it's headphone port is far too small for the headphone's to be connected.

I'm looking to buy this because retailers like Raidoshack don't have anything similar.

I was wondering if anyone had the same issue and what their solution was.

You have three choices, as far as I can see.

1 Different wired headphones
2 Bluetooth wireless headphones
3 Use the Micro USB output instead.

I have used method 3 successfully. I bought a Micro USB OTG cable, a USB DAC and a headphone amplifier.

The USB DAC was the UD110 http://stoneracoustics.blogspot.co.uk/, now in a version 2 and the amplifier was a Fiio E5 http://www.amazon.co.uk/FiiO-E5-BK-E.../dp/B0026RJQJ6, now superseded, but there is plenty of choice on those depending on budget. The OTG was a 2 Hong Kong ebay special.

There are combo DAC and amplifier devices, such as Fiio's E07K http://www.fiio.com.cn/products/inde...nuID=105026002 that look like they'd do the trick and be a more elegant solution than mine.

Err... make that four options;

4) drill out headphone jack hole in case to fit the jack!
