For my iPod, I have a very thin case on it and it doesn't seem to block the connection.

Right now I have a jelly like case and it is also thin, I don't see a change in my wifi signal, however, I'm not so sure about the Lifeproof case because it is plastic, I don't know what substances will transfer wifi easier, I found out that metal doesn't do so great that's why they put the receptor on the exterior of the iPod. I will look more into it, thanks for answering quickly, it helped.

You'll be fine, the Lifeproof will not interfere with wifi or Bluetooth reception. When I bought my iPod 5, Lifeproof had not yet released a case for it so I went with a Griffin Survivor case. Both get it done and protect the iPod. I will say this, the Lifeproof states that it is watertight to something like 6 - 10 feet, but people have complained that the seals sometimes fail or leak and the buttons are at first difficult to operate. The other pain is you will most likely need to purchase cable adapters to plug in your iPod to headphones, docks, charges, etc. People have also stated it is difficult to get the case on and more so to remove it. The Survivor (the one I bought-- mostly because it was the only other case I would buy) does everything the the Lifeproof does, BUT makes no claim to be watertight, only waterproof. Meaning, it will keep the rain and snow off you iPod, but take a bath with it and it's going to get wet. Plus it's easier to put on and remove, and you do not need special cables for headphones, charger cables, etc., you might need an adaptor to use in some docks. Also, the Survivor will not interfere with wifi or Bluetooth reception. Something else, the Survivor costs less and the removable belt clip doubles as a stand. Either case will serve you well. I looked at Otterbox as well, personally, I was not impressed. Good luck.

Apple User121, have seen a complaint about the Griffin Survivor from an other user in this forum, there iPod got wet after getting caught in the rain and was using a Survivor case, I have a Survivor case, used mine in the rain a few times without issue, but at least one person had water damage. Thought I'd pass it along.
