Holiday Audio Gift Guide

We all know the rage right now is the new iPhone 6 and 6 plus so it is only fitting that you have some of the best accessories to go along with the hottest phone. Even if you don’t have the latest iPhone, here are some great gift ideas this holiday season:

Crusher headphones by Skullcandy take audio to a new level. Imagine yourself at the front row of a concert and that just comes a little close to the experience you will receive once you put these amazing headphones on. What makes the lightweight over the ears headset so unique is the ability to customize your own music by controlling the bass. To kick your music up a notch, there is a built-in battery powered amplifier tucked away in the super soft ear cup. You can even use these comfortable headphones to take calls as there is a built-in mic allowing users to take and make calls.

If you prefer a smaller set of headphones that fit comfortably inside your ears, be sure to check out Moshi’s Vortex. These comfortable earbuds come complete with a mic and carrying case. As for the sound, Moshi delivers amazingly clear bass and with theAudio Burn-In Tool, it allows the headphone diaphragms to relax and reach their optimal level of sonic performance. Simply install the burn-in tool on any iOS device and select the headphone and desired burn-in period. The burn-in tool is customized for all Moshi Audio headphones, but also includes support for any third-party audio headsets as well.

To keep earphones from getting tangled up, we recommend BudStraps, Simply clip to your earbuds and the sweat resistant neck strap will sit comfortably on the back of your neck. This is a great gift idea for a runner, athlete or driver looking to keep earphones in place.

Every phone needs a little protection and the Moshi Overture is there for you when you need it most. Thisfolio-style wallet is designed to carry your cards, cash, and iPhone in one sleek form. We love the weather-proof design that is strong enough to provide the protection our phone needs in case of dropping. The exterior is made of a Terahedron microfiber lining reinforced with a shatter-proof polycarbonate frame. With this case, there is no longer the need to remove your iPhone to take photos and videos as all buttons and cameras remain fully accessible within the case.

For speakers, we love Ecoxgear’s ECOSTONE that you can literally take anywhere with you as it is waterproof. This rugged speaker is small enough to take with you and powerful enough to repel water. Made with stereo 3.5” speaker drivers for clear sound, the Bluetooth speaker has rear mounted subwoofer that delivers heavy bass and clear music.

For the ultimate in luxury, we recommend Ultimate Ears 11 Pro Custom In-Ear Monitors. Designed for recording musicians and audio lovers, these 3D-printed custom earphones are molded to fit each person’s unique ear shape so no two are alike. Once the impressions are made at an audiologist, they are then made into custom earphones that make you feel like you are on stage and part of the band. You won’t believe how clear the sound is. Trust us, listening to music has never sounded better.
