Why are speaker vents on front when iPhone speakers are on bottom? Does that not block out the sound output?

    Hi Robin - I've had mine for a month (iPhone 5 Plain Vanilla) and the sound is great with the case on. After I read your question I looked over the case and there are indeed no specific 'sound apertures' but it plays great on or off..it comes out around the charge aperture I guess.

  • They are Sound Chambers that enhance the sound and make it percevably louder and clearer. It does work. I wear Hearing Aids, and I can hear conversations with the Mophie cases on, that I Cannot hear with them removed.
    The concept has been copied by other case manufacturers, as well as add-on devices "to increase volume etc".

  • The speakers are there because of the charging connections within the case. If anything the case amplifies the sound as it projects the sound forward acting like a directional funnel.
