Speakers make such a terrific Christmas gift! Whether for the car, the television or the computer, or private listening, giving speakers as a gift this holiday season will be a delight for whoever unwraps such a welcome present.

In our day-to-day world, we are inundated with a cacophony of sounds. Why not make those sounds pleasurable and enjoyable?

There are many like minded people for the audiophile. And while giving good quality speakers doesn’t require a great deal of technical knowledge, it’s important to know a few of the brand leaders in the different areas such as:

  • Car Audio Speakers
  • Home Speakers
  • Computer Speakers
  • Headphones / Earbuds


Car Speakers

For some, driving while listening to good music is supremely pleasurable. There are many different brands to consider when selecting car audio speakers. Alpine makes good quality, affordable speakers that fit in most cars. JVC is a higher-end brand, but gives amazing sound quality as well. Most car audio speakers come in a pair and usually have either free or discounted installation depending upon the place of purchase.


For the Home

Long gone are the days of the 5 foot high speaker system and multiple audio equipment overpowering a living room. No, with the advancement of technology has come the restructuring of such speakers into smaller more manageable home theatre/surround sound systems. Yamaha, Denon and Onkyo make good quality speaker systems that, depending upon the wattage, (the higher the watts, the louder the sound) gives some remarkable, almost theatre-like sound.

With the popularity of iPhones, and MP3 players, there are some terrific devices to plug your phone or player into that despite the size, offer a roomful of sound. Harmon Kardon make a docking station for the iPhone that produces a crisp and clean sound well worth the nominal price.


For the Desktop or Laptop

With most of us working on otherwise on our computers, there is an entire industry built around the computer audiophile. Complete with two speakers and a subwoofer, Logitech, Cyber Acoustics and Creative Labs make very good quality speakers for computers.



Still undefeated in each of the above categories, Bose Sound Systems are by far the top of the line when it comes to quality sound reproduction. If you’re in the mood to splurge on your special someone, a set of Bose Headphones are one of the most coveted gifts a person could receive. With a wide range of sound comparable to that of a surround sound system, the Bose Headphones privatizes the high quality of sound for the listener allowing him/her to enjoy the majesty of their music (or movies, or Skype calls) on a level that far exceeds most. A bit on the spendy side, but very well worth every penny!
