Video Review: The Skullcandy Aviator Headphones with Microphone for iPhone/iPad

aviator_3-4_black_1I don’t have a lot of experience with Skullcandy headphones. Honestly, I’ve always thought they looked a bit cheap. I was pleasantly surprised to see how nice the Aviators looked.

20130301_084606But what is NFC good for Juan? Really? What can you DO with it?

Well I’m glad you asked, because this little wonder radio is fantastically flexible.
