In the early days of motherhood your phone becomes your friend. It allows you to google all those weird questions you might have as a first time mum. It often provides middle-of-night entertainment whether that be social media or netflix while you sit through those long sessions of cluster feeding. It will most likely attract the attention of your toddler once he or she starts noticing the world around them. And soon you find your older kids asking to use it for Pokémon Go.

So it’s naturally a good thing to make sure it’s well protected. A sturdy case is essential. But what if the case did more than just provide protection?

When Caspian was born I would often settle him with my phone in hand. We would get comfortable in bed, I’d make sure I had food and drink close by and all was going well. After his feed he would drift off and I would often be too tired to get back up, but not tired enough to sleep. My iPhone 6 screen is large enough for me to watch TV and films on, but often I would realise too late that I had left my head phones somewhere else.

When he was really little this didn’t matter so much, as he would sleep through most noise, but as he grew and became more curious I couldn’t have the sound on without waking him. I would curse under my breath being stuck there under a sleeping baby with my head phones out of reach.

I therefore naturally jumped at the opportunity to try dome8. The husband and wife team behind this clever and ergonomically enhanced design came up with the idea after he often left his head phones behind commuting to work or spent ages untangling, when he finally did remember them. Sounds familiar?


The case has room to attach the headphones at the back. You simply lift the rubber flap, stick the ear pieces in first and then wrap the cord around and close the flap. When you need them simply unravel and pop out the ear pieces last.

dome8 phone case review and giveaway

It does make the phone a little more bulky, but I find that it’s easier and more comfortable to hold now. The case comes in five different designs for the iPhone 5 and 6 models, and has a modern, sporty look about it. Dome8 retails at £14.95.

It makes a great gift for anyone commuting, for older kids returning to school this September or for new mums who will need their headphones to hand.

  6. Aw what a sweet case! I love the idea of having a special spot on the back for your ear buds too. I currently am living on the wild-side AKA phone without a case, but have a Samsung so can’t enter your giveaway! Boo. LOL 😀

    1. I did that for a while… dangerous with a toddler around 🙂 I think they are bringing out one for the Samsung phones.

  7. Ooh that is a great idea to store headphones on the phone itself. A slightly bulkier phone can be fine, easier to hold onto sometimes.
