Soundmagic E11C in-ear headphones

With Christmas just around the corner, they’ll be a lot of people out there frantically searching for gifts. Whether you leave it to the last minute (like me), or you just can’t think of what to get someone, you need not to worry anymore, as I may have just the thing in the Soundmagic E11C headphones…

With almost everybody having music on their smartphone or a portable music player, the E11C headphones are a fantastic and cost effective upgrade to the freebies you get with your devices. Build quality is fantastic and the aluminium casings feel like they could take a bit of punishment and work perfectly as ever. The silver-plated copper cable gives an authentic and almost premium feel to a great sounding pair of headphones. Throw in the fact that there are both in-line mic and volume controls, and these make the price for these seems ridiculously low. If there is anybody you think may want a serious upgrade to their in-ear headphones then the E11C are definitely worth considering. You could maybe even treat yourself….shop now!

Audiolab M-DAC Nano DAC/headphone amp

Got a music lover in your life that you need a gift for? You know, the ones who always take their headphones wherever they go and they just can’t get enough.

Well what about something for those headphones in the fantastic M-Dac Nano?

Combining its small size and wireless Bluetooth aptX technology, it’s easy to see why the Nano could be the perfect gift. Streaming from your portable music device, it can up-sample music to beyond what CDs can offer, and almost to Hi-Res audio standard. Quite the impressive feat for something that weighs just 28g. Add to this that the Nano can also act as a good quality headphones amplifier, and you’ve got quite the gift on your hands here. It won’t just power your standard in-ear headphones either. So if this is for someone with more powerful over-ear cans, then the Nano will have no trouble getting the best out of them. If someone’s always on the go wth their headphones on, then the Nano, combined with its 8-hour battery life (which can be charged wirelessly) might just be the perfect gift for them. It’s small, unobtrusive, easy to use and oh, it sounds great too. What more could they want? Buy now…
