if its only for skype there are tons of no name options out there in your local store or on amazon. Meelectronics makes a lot of options if you want something that can be a servicable music set as well as skype devices.

Well i emailed Meelectronics to see which one of their iem's would work best with my Nexus 7. and they said they will not work with it.

Dear Valued Customer,

Best Regards,

Carl

Funny, but the Samsung tablets work great with the mic & clicker controller. And it's also just a tablet,...
