Gadgets make great Christmas presents – whether you’re looking for a neat stocking filler or you’re after something a little bit bigger, there is sure to be something electronic that will float the boat of your loved one.
This year, it’s all about audio, and in the quest for superior sound quality and unique ways to listen to music, you’ll find many great gifts to buy.
Here’s the top 5.
1. Roberts Revival R250 FM/AM/LW Portable Radio
The Roberts Revival R250 is a unique and retro portable radio that is designed to resemble units from the 1950’s. It’s available in over 8 different colours, and the 3-band radio receiver ensures that your loved one will get all of the best channels.
The radio produces crisp, clear sound and can be plugged in to the mains or used wirelessly with 4 D size batteries.
This radio can be picked up for around £99.95 online.
2. Pioneer SEMJ751 Headphones
The Pioneer SEMJ751 headphones look fantastic and produce the sound quality to match. They are a fully enclosed pair of headphones which means that they cancel out all background noise. This makes them ideal for anybody who listens to their music in noisy environments. They feature powerful dual 40mm and 30mm drivers to deliver superior sound and they have their own bass control level, offering ultimate flexibility on the listening experience.
Superfi’s Pioneer SEMJ751 headphones are available from £59.98, but you’ll need to hurry, they are selling out fast!
3. AKG K451 Headphones
If your loved one needs a good pair of headphones and you have a budget of around £50, there are few options that are better than the AKG K451 headphones. Superfi offers the AKG K451 headphones for £49.95, and they produce exceptional sound quality, with great vocals, a crisp treble and thumping bass – unlike many similarly priced headphones, these are very neutral, and are ideal for all types of music.
They also look fantastic and a lot more expensive than their retail price. These headphones are closed back, and therefore cancel out any background noise, making them perfect for the commute.
4. Monitor Audio WS100 Wireless Active Speakers
If you store all of your music on your computer, it makes sense to have a powerful speaker system so that you can enjoy your favourite tunes whilst surfing the internet. But what about a pair of speakers that aren’t bogged down by cables?
Cable length is one of the biggest issues with PC speaker systems, and the Monitor Audio WS100 Wireless Active Speakers solve this by offering wireless music playback. All you need to do is plug in a small USB transmitter, and these puppies will offer up fantastic lossless audio.
5. Sennheiser RS160 Cordless Headphones
The Sennheiser RS160 Cordless Headphones are the best way to get into the cordless headphone market – they allow you to listen to your music wirelessly up to 20 metres away from your device. They feature an over-ear design and noise cancelling technology. Unlike cheap wireless headphones, these have a big battery which offers 24 hours of playback from a single charge.
These headphones are priced at around £150 online.
