With the great leaps in technology in recent years it’s no surprise that there is a wealth of quirky gadgets for the avid music fan. There are all kinds of great products on the market to enhance the music listening experience, make it possible to enjoy music in previously difficult situations and ensure you look good when you’re rocking out on the go. Here’s a guide to a selection of some of the best gadgets on the market.
When you have your music stored across different platforms, whether tablet, smart phone or laptop, Bluetooth speakers come in handy. As they are able to pick up signal from a range of positions within your home or office, these are great for convenience and often deliver impeccable sound. Online electronic retailers such as Hispek stock a great range of high end Bluetooth speakers from great brands such as Bose and Sonos.
Bluetooth Shower Speaker
To make sure you don’t miss out on your tunes when you are having a shower get equipped with a Silicone Bluetooth Shower Speaker. Simply stick the device on to the wall of your shower with the suction cup and pick up signal from a computer or other device up to 10 metres away.
Noise Cancelling Headphones
Cleverly designed active noise control picks up external low frequency noise and cancels them out by producing sound waves to counteract them. This means the listener can enjoy their music in a way it was meant to be heard.
Headphone Ear Warmers
An obvious advancement in audio technology, headphone ear warmers provide warmth as well as great sounds, provided you get a good quality version of this product (there are some cheaper ones that don’t deliver on either count).
Fli Tunes Frisbee Speakers
These are a must-have if you specifically enjoy two activities at the beach or in the park. There are no wires and the Fli Tunes Frisbee is very light weight. As well as a great frisbee, you can also pop the middle out and the cone design effectively amplifies the sound of your smart phone.
Like the headphone ear warmers this is an obvious combo of two very useful winter items. Again, it is worth paying that bit extra to ensure you get a hat that doesn’t look ridiculous and headphones that provide decent sound quality.
Ever wanted to listen to music as you nod off or are just having a lie down but don’t want to have the hassle of a hifi or feel the discomfort of wearing headphones? Speaker pillows connect like headphones but enable you to put your head directly on the source of the music.
A novel solution to the age old problem of tangled headphone wires as products like Zipbuds are designed to be fed directly inside a zip. These are a simple but effective answer to one of life’s little frustrations.
