A Holiday Gift Guide to Headphones

Here’s an idea to pass the time on your long commute or while you attempt that extra mile on the treadmill at your gym. Try to guess what people around you are listening to on their headphones.

That guy with shopping bags across from you on the train…his smile says holiday music. The toe-tapping woman three rows down…a popular dance tune. That distinguished-looking woman, eyes closed and head swaying gently…something classical. And the guy on the treadmill next to you at the gym this morning…odds-on heavy metal.

No matter their tastes, people love music, and headphones make their favorites readily accessible no matter where they are. That’s why headphones make great gifts for just about anyone on your list. Here are just a few suggestions:

Gift idea #1: Bose SoundSport wireless headphones for a tangle-free workout.

Bose SoundSport wireless headphones
not only deliver superior workout audio, they also eliminate those troublesome wires that tend to get in the way of vigorous workouts. Comfortable StayHear®+ ear tips are uniquely crafted to stay in place and feel great no matter how energetic the activity. And the water-and sweat-resistant* design means your friends can even run in a light rain shower if they want.

It’s easy to take calls and control the music while exercising, too, thanks to the inline mic and remote. Your friends will effortlessly manage volume, skip tracks and take those calls, all without having to reach for a nearby connected device.

And the sound is all Bose, so they’ll enjoy these headphones even when they’re not working out.

Gift idea #2: Beats Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones take workouts to the next level.

Here’s another earphone set the avid fitness buff will appreciate. Inspired by LeBron James, Powerbeats3 Wireless Earphones deliver renowned Beats audio in all its glory. Dual-driver acoustics power music through each earbud for dynamic sound that keeps your friends motivated and running strong. And Powerbeats3 stands up to weather and vigorous workouts because they’re water- and sweat-resistant.

If your friends are Apple® users, they’ll also appreciate that Powerbeats3 earphones are equipped with the Apple W1 chip, enabling easy Bluetooth® pairing with Apple devices and allowing Siri® access.

Powerbeats3 delivers up to 12 hours of battery life. And if their Powerbeats3 is on empty, a five-minute Fast Fuel charge delivers an extra hour of non-stop playback.

Gift idea #3: New-generation LG TONE PRO Bluetooth Stereo Headset delivers multi-layered audio.

Maybe you’ve seen the sharp-looking LG TONE PRO Bluetooth Stereo Headset proudly worn all around town. Highlighted by LG’s signature around-the-neck design, this new generation TONE PRO boasts exceptional comfort as well as a truly fashionable look. Powered by Quad-Layer Speaker Technology for multi-layered sound, TONE PRO delivers crisp treble, robust bass and less high-frequency distortion.

New-generation features include dual MEMS microphones for exceptionally clear voice calling; Tone & Talk 2.0 for recording voice memos, text reading and finding paired devices; a new wire design that accentuates TONE PRO’s sleek look. And the refined, Quad-Layer Speaker Technology is coupled with Qualcomm aptX HD Audio Codec§ for truly exceptional audio that faithfully reproduces the full audio bandwidth over Bluetooth. Whew. That’s a lot of tech talk. Basically, it means that the new-gen LG TONE PRO is better than ever.

Gift idea #4: Beats urBeats Earphones minimizes vibrations and noise.

Another solid gift idea for the music lover is the urBeats Earphones by Dr. Dre, delivering the ultimate combination of sound, style and comfort.

Your friends will enjoy deep, heart-pounding bass, skyrocketing highs and amazingly clear mid-ranges. Vibrations and unwanted sounds are minimized by the unique, precision-machined metal housing. And the built-in mic and in-line remote make it easy for them to switch between songs and calls on compatible phones.

People will comment on the distinctive, hard chrome finishes that also help give urBeats their long-lasting durability. And the lightweight design provides hours of listening comfort during exercise, travel and everyday wear.

All are gifts they’ll appreciate.
