Best Home Stereo Bookshelf Speaker Gifts

Three great-sounding bookshelf stereo speaker systems from three of our very favorite brands, these all offer incredible performance in their respective price ranges and will make an amazing gift for anyone enjoying good sound equipment.

Polk Audio T15 100 Watt 2 Way Bookshelf Speakers

With such high power handling capacity, the Polk Audio T15 bookshelf speakers put out an awesome amount of volume for their size, but what is really amazing is the sound quality – deep bass, smooth midrange, and sweet, extended highs – perfect for any kind of music. Hard to find a better gift for a true music fan.

Klipsch R-41M High Efficiency Home Stereo Bookshelf Speaker

The brilliant compression horn tweeter gives these Klipsch R-41M speakers that legendary Klipsch sound, as well as plenty of efficiency for small amplifiers and plenty of power handling for even the biggest systems. Serious power and beautiful sound!

KEF Q350 Uni-Q Driver Audiophile Bookshelf Speaker

One of the very finest sounding bookshelf speakers available at any price, with truly high-resolution reproduction of detail, dynamics, space, and timbre, the KEF Q-350 speakers will leave speachless anyone enyojing amazing sound. This is a no-compromise speaker system for the best listening experience.

Best Home Theater Speaker Gifts

Nothing is as wonderful as the immersive and powerful experience of a good home theater system, and these three great home theater speakers will bring home theater enjoyment to a new level to anyone you will gift it to.

Polk Audio 5.1 Channel Home Theater System with Powered Subwoofer

The superb Polk sound, long beloved and often (if not successfully) copied, is absolutely perfect for a full and convincing home theater experience, and this reasonably priced Polk 5.1 home theater speaker system with powered subwoofer is a great example – deep, powerful bass, smooth sound but with tons of detail, and wholly convincing, seamlessly three-dimensional imaging.

Samsung HW-Q67CT 38.6″ 7.1 Channel Home Theater Sound System

Famous for advanced technology, material quality, and beautiful designs, Samsung proves here – with their surprisingly powerful HW-Q67CT home theater speaker system – that they are also capable of producing some great-sounding speakers. One of the best budget home theater speaker systems we know and these will make the perfect gift for a movie fan that enjoys great sounds quality.

Klipsch Black Reference Theater 5.1 Surround Sound System

One of the finest home theater systems available – at least without spending thousands and thousands of dollars – and equal to or better than some famous theater speaker systems. If you are ready to spend a little extra for the best sound system on the market, these are unbeatable.

Best Gift Deals on Home Office Speakers

Since we are all spending so much more time at home these days, and especially in our home offices, we here at Speakergy thought it would make sense to include a category for home office speakers – and we were just amazed at the great deals we found on the Amazon. If you order today you should be able to get them by Christmas!

Creative Pebble 2.0 USB-Powered Desktop Speakers

We’re not entirely sure what the intriguing-sounding phrase “Far-Field Drivers” actually means, but we do know that these are absolutely amazing sounding speakers by any standard, and for their size and their price they are almost unbelievable. And a hassle-free single cable hook-up makes them perfect for any desk.

Edifier R980T Powered Studio Monitor Computer Speakers

For people who really like to rock out when they are working, the Edifier R980T speakers are a great choice and a great gift idea. They simply plug into the headphone jack of any PC, and with 24 watts of power they can play loud with no distortion or strain, yet their excellent engineering, material, and construction quality mean they sound equally good at even very low levels. Highly recommended!

Bose 300 Home Smart Speaker

While not specifically meant as a home office speaker, we’ve found that the beautiful Bose 300 smart speaker looks and sounds great on a desktop. And with compatibility with Alexa, Google Home, and other smart systems, the Bose 300 can play your favorite music streams, find specific songs or genres, and even attend to other tasks for you with a minimum of effort or distraction. O brave new world, that has such speakers in ‘t!

Best Smart Speaker Gift Deals

If you haven’t gotten on board the speeding smart speaker train yet, it is really about time, and this holiday season is the perfect time to get going.

All-new Amazon Echo Dot Smart speaker with Alexa

Small but powerful, the 4th generation Amazon echo dot smart speaker is one of the latest members of the ever-growing Amazon Alexa smart home system – one of the most complete and intelligent systems available. And, the wee dot also sounds great!

Sonos Move Battery Powered Smart Speaker with Alexa

Many people wonder if they can have all the benefits of a next-gen smart speaker – voice-activated smart home management, internet research, phone calls, messages and correspondence, alarms and reminders, etc – and still have audiophile sound quality. We have to imagine that if they were to listen to the Sonos Move for even a minute or two they’d immediately stop wondering – a fully advanced and capable smart speaker with truly engaging and musical high fidelity sound, which looks, feels, and sounds like it should be much more expensive.

Best Headphone Gifts

Our last category in this 2023 Buyer’s Guide of the best sound equipment gifts is headphones – a really ideal gift for any music lover or gamer. Luckly there are available some amazing deals for this holiday season – absolute steal on one of the best pairs of gaming headphones on the market, a pair of superb true audiophile headphones from one of the most respected manufacturers in the industry, and an incredible deal on one of the most popular wireless headphones for any gamer.

Razer Kraken RZ-04 Lightweight Gaming Headset with Retractable Noise Isolating Microphone

Razer Kraken is the acknowledged leader in gaming headphones, and their RZ-04 lightweight gamers are a good reason why. Light and comfortable for even the most extended gaming sessions, incredibly detailed and with a spookily holographic soundstage, and featuring a superb noise-free microphone, these Krakens can’t be beaten – especially at this price.

Audio Technica ATH-M30x Audiophile Studio Monitor Headphones

Few companies in the audio industry enjoy the kind of near-unanimous respect and consistently high ratings and reviews that you see for Audio Technica and their headphones. The ATH-M300x is a true Audio Technica product in this respect (with a nearly 5-star rating on Amazon with almost 5,000 reviews!) and also in its beautiful, detailed, and accurate sound quality. Nothing we know comes even close at this price.

Skullcandy Crusher Wireless Over-Ear Headphones

We often hear parents say they have no idea what to get their teenage kids without looking totally lame. Our first piece of advice is: don’t use phrases like “totally lame,” and our second is: Skullcandy. Any kid, no matter how cool, will be genuinely surprised and thrilled!
