Remember when a Discman was at the top of everybody’s holiday wish list? Smartphones and other mobile devices have since replaced portable CD players and MP3 players and, with the right apps and accessories, make perfect gifts for music lovers.
The DROID DNA by HTC is made for audiophiles. The smartphone comes with Beats Audio technology, which allows listeners to enhance the quality of sound on their phone while also enabling music streaming over 4G LTE. The DROID DNA lets music lovers share their favorite tracks with others thanks to Android Beam. With Android Beam, users can share music playlists by simply tapping two compatible phones together.
The Nokia Lumia 822 comes with Nokia Music, a free streaming music service with a collection of more than 17 million tracks. The app allows users to create personal playlists, or select from hundreds of specially curated mixes drawn from the Nokia Music collection.
There is a variety of apps for music fans. Slacker lets users create their own stations based on their music preferences, and a monthly subscription can be a great gift. For someone who likes to create their own music, FourTracks Lite offers a portable recording studio right on an Android mobile device. The app comes with four audio tracks, volume knob, mute button, ability to mix and more.
Playing and creating music on a smartphone is great, but sharing it is even better. The Jawbone JAMBOX Bluetooth Speaker connects to a smartphone, tablet or mobile device to turn it into a portable, wireless operated, hi-fi sound system. Additionally, top rated headphones, such as the Plantronics MX200 Universal Earbud Headset or the Motorola SF200 Sports Headphones, make great gifts, providing excellent sound quality and a comfortable fit for a superior music experience.
