So this is a slight design whine, but it is a question.

When I put my headphones into my iPhone the jack sticks straight up and keeps getting caught in things in my pocket and has broken before. I'd like a headphone extension/adapter that was a right angle so the idea is that there is a adapter that you put into the socket, such that the adapter's socket is 'pointing' at the power button rather than straight up... that way there would be a slight buldge at the top of my case, but the wire would come out of the side and my headphones would be less likely to snap off.

Any ideas?
