Just the image of a classic cassette tape is enough to evoke precious memories of great times gone by for a lot of us. That’s one of the reasons why we love Casetify’s terrific Mixtape case for iPhone.

It has all the charm of an old cassette and combines it with military-grade protection that keeps your precious smartphone looking brand-new. What’s more, it’s now available for the 2020 iPhone SE — as well as iPhone 11 and more.

Many iPhone owners won’t have used cassette tapes. They won’t be familiar with the frustration rewinding every time you want to listen to your favorite album, or carefully trying to retract tangled tape that escaped its case.

For many of us, however, cassettes can be a reminder of the hits we grew up to. The soundtracks to our teens or twenties — long before the iPod put 1,000 songs in our pockets and Bluetooth brought music streaming to our cars.

A cassette that’s not useless in 2020.

You wouldn’t want to use cassettes now, no matter how hipster you might be. The audio quality is disappointing by today’s standards. Skipping trash tracks is impossible. And they eventually wear out, unlike digital audio or even CDs.

Instead, go retro with one of Casetify’s stellar Mixtape cases.

Casetify’s Mixtape case hits the right notes

The Mixtape case is engineered with a dual-layer “qitech” material that offers impressive impact protection. It’s tested and approved for drops of up to 6.6 feet, so if your iPhone takes a tumble, it will remain in one piece.

It’s also available with a cool pink bumper.

The case also keeps your iPhone’s shiny metal frame free from scuffs and scratches, and has a flexible lip that wraps around the edge of your device to help protect its front-facing glass.

The Mixtape won’t get in the way of your cameras, and it won’t block any ports or buttons. It’s everything you want a good iPhone case to be — with a stellar and iconic design added for good measure.
