Exclamation Galaxy Note 2 Headphone Jack Too Close?

Just got my Galaxy Note 2 a couple of days ago and on the first day I noticed that when the headphone jack is plugged in its actully got no spacing between the body of the phone and the jack input.

As a result if the jack is rotated for any reason it scratches the chromed surface around the headphone jack and creates a half circle on the upper half of the port, for the record it is one of the larger inputs you see on cheaper accesories such as FM Transmitters and Casette Adaptors smaller ones also caues the same effect but closer to the jack and not as harsh.

Anyone else having this issue?

For the record these are the devices being used with my Note II that are causing the damage.

Can you possibly post pics so we can see what it looks like or how much damage has been done?
