And, since we’ve spent a lot of time this past year testing out some of the latest and greatest products in the music world — be it music streaming services to top-notch earbuds — we know the gifts that’ll put a smile on any music lover’s face.
Topping NX1s Portable Headphone Amplifier
The Topping NX1s is a reasonably priced, pocketable headphone amplifier that’s a great gift option for audiophiles with on-the-go lifestyles. It has built-in hi-fi circuitry and components that are guaranteed to enhance the audio experience of any smartphone, tablet, or computer it’s connected to.
The all-metal gadget supports Hi-Res Audio content. We like that it has a dedicated button for beefing up the bass response when desired.

Vinyl is constantly growing in popularity, making the Audio-Technica AT-LP60X turntable the perfect gift for someone who’s looking to begin collecting records. Priced below $100, the fully automatic, belt-driven device has intuitive controls and exceptional audio performance.

Aquarius David Bowie Vinyl Drink Coasters
We all know someone who always has Bowie on repeat. So when that someone is entranced by “Starman” for the third time in a night, give them someplace safe to put their drink. These vinyl drink coasters by Aquarius — featuring a different image of the iconic artist — are just the thing for them. Each coaster measures a tad over 4 inches in diameter. And for those who are more inclined to the likes of AC/DC or Pink Floyd, Aquarius has them covered.
Vibes High Fidelity Earplugs
Thanks to Vibes, you can still enjoy booming base at a concert without damaging your ears. The high-fidelity earplugs are super discreet and unnoticeable in your ears — we love the small, clear design.
We tried out Vibes at a couple enclosed concerts and were truly impressed with how well you could still hear the highs and lows in the music. They’re made with filtered sound reduction versus outright noise cancellation, which helps makes the sound more clear. These earplugs have completely changed how we’ll experience concerts in the future — for the better.

Marshall took inspiration from their iconic guitar amps when designing the Stockwell II wireless speaker. Its controls include a trio of dedicated rotating knobs for adjusting the volume, as well as the bass and treble outputs. The speaker has a rugged design and an IPX4 rating for water resistance.
The sound quality of the Stockwell II is excellent, as Marshall partnered with Blumlein Stereo to give the speaker the ability to deliver an immersive, multidirectional audio experience that’s among the best in its price range.
Other key features of the product include Bluetooth 5.0 connectivity and the ability to wirelessly connect to multiple audio sources. In case you’re looking to gift more decibels, consider the larger Marshall Tufton speaker instead.
