The world of audio equipment is seemingly endless and it’s easy to get lost in specs and subjective reviews about sound quality and a million other different things—making it especially difficult to shop for someone when you don’t know much about the industry yourself. To take the pain out of finding the perfect audio gadget for someone on your list, we’ve picked out some of our favorite Bose speakers and headphones.
Bose QC35II—One of the most popular noise-cancelling headphones ever, and with good reason. Bose’s noise-cancelling tech is widely considered the best in the industry, having been refined through years of experience. Add in the high-quality audio, long battery life and Alexa/Google integration and there’s lots to love. This year, you really can give the gift of silence.
Bose Soundbar 500—Nothing adds to the excitement of a great movie like crushing cinema-quality sound. Unfortunately, it’s usually absent from today’s TVs and their notoriously weak speakers, so an auxiliary audio system is a must. A Bose Soundbar is the ideal replacement for a multi-speaker surround sound system. It’s so compact that you’ll barely notice it on your TV stand, yet still sounds great enough to rival an expensive, complex home theater system.
Bose SoundLink Color II—Designed for life on the go, the SoundLink Color II fits big sound in a not-so-big package. It’s perfect for outdoor gatherings, where it can fill a backyard with your favorite music. With a rugged, water-resistant design and a battery that will provide up to 8 hours of listening, The SoundLink Color II will survive even the wildest parties.
Bose SoundLink Micro—For when you want to take your tunes on the go, in the smallest package possible, the Bose SoundLink Micro goes places its larger siblings can’t. Measuring less than four inches squared, the SoundLink Micro can easily slip in a pocket, while the integrated silicon strap lets you lash it to a bag, bike, or just about anything you can imagine. Combined with the rugged, waterproof design, the SoundLink Micro is an ideal adventure accessory.
Bose SoundLink Revolve Plus—Why constrain your music do just one direction if you don’t have to? The SoundLink Revolve Plus has a unique wraparound construction to produce 360 degrees of sound, filling a room with immersive sound. With a water-resistant design and integrated rubber bumpers, the Revolve+ is built to take a spill—in more ways then one. Siri and Google voice commands let you control the speaker with just your voice, and a 16-hour battery give you days of typical use on a single charge.
Bose Home Speaker 500—If listening on the go won’t be high on your giftees list of needs, consider the Home Speaker 500. Bigger than any of the portable Bose speakers, the HS 500 puts out some serious sound, which makes it perfectly at home on a shelf in a man cave. The Home Speaker 500 has a trick up its sleeve: full Amazon Alexa functions baked in. So not only can you control your music with your voice, you can get the weather or even adjust your smart lights.
