Mom's old turntable is probably decades old now and in dire need of new components. Update her hi-fi with the U-Turn Orbit Basic turntable! With its dead-simple setup, top notch parts and a budget-friendly price tag to match, you can easily breathe new life into her old records without spending a lot of cash.
Whether your mom wants to listen to NPR or stream MP3s from her phone one of the most economical ways to do both is to buy her a Chromecast Audio. All she'll need is a stereo with an auxiliary input and a wi-fi connection. Sounds way better than Bluetooth as well.
Doesn't dear old Mom deserve the very best this year, and always? If she's a discerning audiophile, you can't get much better than the Audeze Sine planar magnetic headphones.
This one's optimized for portable use so she can use it with her mobile device without leaking sound, and Audeze makes two versions: one with a traditional miniplug and another that adds an Apple Lightning connector instead -- it's one of those headphones that sounds so good it'll make her want to go back and listen to her music collection to hear the little details that lesser headphones don't reveal.
Whether your Mom is the active type or not, there's no arguing with the benefits of getting outside for a little exercise. It's something we can all use, and the same goes for the Bose SoundSport In-Ear Headphones.
They feature a weather and sweat-resistant design for improved durability and splash-resistance, so you don't have to worry about them breaking midway through a run, and the drivers offer well balanced sound with punchy bass performance.
If your mom needs computer speakers don't bother with the plastic junk you see at your local electronics store, go for a beautiful set of PROPER speakers instead. Great for watching YouTube or listening to music.
With so many wireless headphone options these days, it can be hard to find a pair that fits the bill for price and performance. If you're feeling overwhelmed shopping for a wireless set for Mom, let your search end with the Sony MDR10RBT over-ears.
It's a very good wireless headphone with Bluetooth connectivity that's comfortable to wear and costs significantly less than the Beats Studio Wireless.
Moms aren't always into the big, flashy over-ear headphones that seem to dominate the market. If subtlety is her thing, then get Mom a pair of the Focal Sphear earbuds.
Thanks to their supreme comfort, she'll be able to wear them for long stretches at a time without experiencing listening fatigue, and they happen to work well with a variety of music genres to match her taste.
The JBL Pulse 2 Bluetooth speaker is a fun way to add some color to your Mom's listening experience. Watch her trip out as the wireless speaker presents a very cool interactive light show with its build-in LEDs.
And did we mention it sounds great playing music too? With big improvements to the quality over the last model, this one offers better bass and holds together better at high volumes.
Few things will make your Mom feel young again like a boombox speaker. But this is a lot different than the ones she might have seen jamming down the street in the past - the Fluance Fi50 is a 13.4 pound beast that has an LED display, a 40-watt amplifier, and delivers insane tunes thanks to an equalizer that lets you adjust bass and treble via the touch controls on top of the speaker.
Let's face it: sometimes Moms get sucked into bright, pretty colors and tend to ignore the quality of the product behind it. In the case of the UE Roll Bluetooth speaker, you get the best of both worlds: a unique, waterproof design that can float with the inflatable life preserver and impressively "big" sound to boot. This is a must-buy for Moms that like to lounge by the pool.
Is your mom still cranking her TV volume trying to hear the dialog better? Get her a soundbar. While there are models available from just $100 the one we recommend to everyone is the Pioneer SP-SB23W. Great sound for $299, and even less on the street.
