7 top audio gifts for the holidays

Not sure what to ask for this holiday season? To figure out the best holiday audio gifts for your home, the following are several common scenarios where Bose products can improve your everyday lifestyle or elevate special events. More than just presents — these gifts are solutions for your everyday life.

1. You want the right earbuds for you

When it comes to earbuds, who wouldn’t want ones that play sound tailored to you along with a design that feels so good to wear?

Our noise cancelling earbuds, the Bose QuietComfort Ultra Earbuds, offer today’s latest and greatest audio and noise cancellation technology, as well as an incredibly comfortable fit. They come with three sets of eartips and three pairs of stability bands, allowing you to mix and match to suit your individual ear shape — so no more falling out on your morning run. These new earbuds are also equipped with Bose Immersive Audio that works with content from any source, providing a more immersive listening experience, no matter where life takes you.

2. If you want to feel like you’re at the show without leaving home

The new Bose QuietComfort Ultra Headphones come equipped with Bose Immersive Audio. This spatialized audio pushes the boundary of what it means to listen by taking what you’re hearing out of your head and placing it in front of you. It sounds so real it’s almost like you could reach out and touch it.

You can also adjust noise cancellation with ActiveSense technology with Quiet and Aware Modes to customize exactly how much of the world to let in or keep out. They also have up to 24 hours per charge making this an even more valuable and long-lasting gift.

3. If you want a realistic movie experience

You can make movie night better and more immersive with a soundbar with Dolby Atmos®, like the Bose Smart Ultra Soundbar. This next-generation voice-enabled soundbar will make you feel like you’re sitting in a movie theater thanks to its Dolby Atmos support, TrueSpace technology, and upward-firing transducers. With these latest advancements, the soundbar delivers wide, spacious sound in any room, as well as realistic overhead effects for a full 360-degree audio experience. It even uses machine learning to improve dialogue intelligibility, ensuring you hear every whisper — without needing subtitles.

4. If you’re always playing host

With the holiday season quickly approaching, you might be gearing up to host a variety of events for your friends and family, and no party is complete without a festive soundtrack. You can set the scene for your next gathering with the help of the Bose Portable Smart Speaker, which offers powerful audio in a surprisingly compact form.

You can use it to play your favorite holiday tunes via Bluetooth or Wi-Fi, and since it’s wireless, you can move it from room to room as needed, even bringing it outdoors. Plus, the speaker offers up to 12 hours of battery life per charge, ensuring it can outlast even the most enthusiastic partygoers.

5. If you need a hiking soundtrack

Sometimes, you just want to enjoy the sounds of nature, but on a particularly challenging hike or a long day on the lake, you might need a little music to keep yourself motivated. A waterproof Bluetooth speaker, like the Bose SoundLink Flex Bluetooth Speaker, is the perfect companion for all your outdoor excursions, as it’s built with durability in mind.

The compact Bluetooth speaker offers up to 12 hours of battery life, and its casing is waterproof, dustproof, and lifeproof. You don’t have to worry if it gets banged around or dropped in the water — this resilient speaker is built to handle a little bruising. It doesn’t compromise audio quality, either. The SoundLink Flex delivers clear sound and a strong, deep bass that packs a punch in any environment.

6. If you need subtitles to understand dialogue

While your new TV might be sleeker than ever, chances are that its speakers are still underpowered. As a result, audio may sound flat, and dialogue might be nearly impossible to hear. If you’re tired of needing subtitles to watch your favorite shows and aren’t quite ready for a full home theater, the Bose TV Speaker definitely deserves a spot on your holiday wish list.

It’s a simple, one-step solution for better TV sound, and it’s more compact than a full-size soundbar. The speaker offers balanced, natural-sounding audio and robust bass, and it even has a dedicated Dialogue Mode that elevates vocals so you can hear every word clearly.

7. If you want music to fill your home

In spacious open-concept homes, music can get lost if your speaker isn’t powerful enough. For rich, clear audio from wall-to-wall, you need a product like the Bose Smart Speaker 500. It boasts two custom drivers that point in opposite directions, helping to fill any room with impressive sound, and its built-in voice assistants make it easy to start or stop your music, change the podcast, or even get information about the weather or traffic on your morning commute. Plus, you can stream music to the speaker from a variety of sources, whether you want to listen to Apple Music, Pandora, Spotify or other available streaming services.
