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 $35 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.
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. The $249 Audioengine 2+ is great for watching YouTube, listening to music and can even be connected to a TV with a headphone output.
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.
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.
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 always complaining about she can't understand what they're saying on TV? Get her the $199 JBL Boost TV. It will elevate dialogue and also play Bluetooth tunes from her phone. And it's easy to hook up as well.
If your Mom needs a radio for the bathroom or kitchen then this moisture-resistant $249 Raumfeld One S goes one step better. It will stream from a phone or her home network and includes support for internet radio and Spotify Connect.
Is your mom still cranking her TV volume trying to hear the dialogue better? Get her a sound bar. 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.
