Christmas is fast approaching and it is so difficult finding the perfect gift for your friends and family so we thought we would offer a little help. If you have a gadget nut to buy for, here’s a few ideas to light up their faces on that special day.

Sony Wired Headset MDR NC31EM – cancel the noise

We recently introduced Sony’s range of audio into our stores as we believe the quality of their audio products is a great fit into our expanding audio range. Sony and sound have long been synonymous with delivering music to our ears and are at the forefront of getting high resolution / definition music back to being the standard.

Ahead of the festive season travels, a great Headset to fill your stocking with, without breaking the bank is the MDR NC31. If you are flying anywhere this December a noise cancelling headset is an ideal way to make your journey a pleasure. No noise. Just music or your movie.

The MDR-NC31EM will effectively block out engine and other noises around you and leave you with the best of your music. High-comfort fit earbuds complement your listening experience and will give you full-range audio with deep bass, a strong medium register and clear highs. Excellent audio for all types of music and at R899 hard to beat.

B&O Play A1 – hearing is believing

Being the proud owner of one of these sick speakers, I can honestly say that it has been one of my best tech purchases ever. The sound is rich, bass phenomenal and clarity exceptional – quality you don’t get at the bottom end of the market. In true B&O style the design is simple yet elegant and is matched by the Beoplay app which simplifies setting the speakers sound into 4 categories which you can blend using the ToneTouch button or allowing you to pair 2 speakers together for an excellent stereo performance. At R4999 they are not cheap, but then for a quality product well worth it. Ideal for travel or for use in the home to bring music to any room.

AWW Quadrone

Out of the box and ready to fly. This remote control (not smartphone dependent) drone does flips and barrel rolls and features a cage to protect from crashes on the sides, above, and below. The 3.7 volt rechargeable Lithium Polymer battery charges with the included USB charger. No assembly is required and the Quadrone can be used indoors or outdoors! Range of +- 30m with a charging time of 30 minutes delivering 7 mins of flying time. For R999 a cool toy, but with a limited flying time you might need to get some extra batteries.

Most iPhone / iPad users will have run out of space on their devices, particularly when on holiday and you have loaded up your phone with music and movies. You get to that opportune moment to try take that awesome holiday snap to come to the realisation you have run out of space. Dilemma, what do you delete what do you keep? The Energea MemoDrive is a great combination cable which can be used as a standard USB to lightning cable OR, by adding in a Micro SD card into the USB housing and downloading the

MemoDrive app from the iTunes store – turned into a storage and back up device. At R549 it’s a great travel companion for saving your music, movies and photos and ensure you don’t run out of storage.
