Gear, Tech & Toys
For heavy duty music fans, musicians and casual listeners alike, why not add some new gear to upgrade their setups? Beats Studio3 Wireless headphones offer cordless, professional-grade audio, while the Crosley CT200 Cassette Player heads the other direction as a lo-fi throwback to the good ol' days when tapes ruled. Artiphon INSTRUMENT 1 and Teenage Engineering OP-Z deliver futuristic synth sounds for the bedroom producer in your life, and the Samson G-Track Pro USB condenser microphone is a solid, affordable option for vocal recordings, ranging from singing to podcasting. Elsewhere, show someone you care about their hearing with these Vibes Hi-Fidelity Earplugs, give the gift of on-the-go high-quality audio recording with the Roland: R-07 or share a laugh with Big Mouth Billy Bass, everyone's favorite animatronic singing fish that now links with Amazon Echo -- which may or may not work very well (read the reviews first).
