Are you sure? I didn't buy the starter kit, cause the guy at the store told me that not even that pouch lets you plug your headphones, it covers the whole Vita.
The headphone jack should have been more on the side. Why didn't Sony make a remote control that lets you skip from one track to another without having to take your Vita out of your pocket?
I'm having fun with my Vita right now, those are my only complaints.
