I just bought a Samsung Galaxy Note8 to replace my iPhone 7 Plus. So far, I love it! One of the first accessories I was excited to try was a customized Toast Wood Veneer Skin.

Rowkin Rolls Out Two New Ways to Cut Headphone Cables

I reviewed the Rowkin Bit Charge last year and was impressed. (Read my review here.) The small, independent earbuds sounded great and truly let you cut the cord… to your phone and between the earbuds. Now the company has released the Micro and Surge. The Micro are tiny.
