Griffin Twenty 2.1 Bluetooth Receiver
I have a set of Klipsch bookshelf speakers that I adore. They sound fantastic and look classy with a little bit of a retro feel. Unfortunately these days it is a bit harder to get my audio to them. Griffin launched the Twenty a few years ago that had a spot to attach an Airport Express. Essentially turning two bookshelf speakers into wireless Airplay speakers.
Now they have a new 2nd generation model that ditches the necessary Airport Express integration for bluetooth. It looks great, and sounds fantastic.

Pono HD Music Player
It is very hard to actually recommend the Pono player to anyone. In an age where iPod sales have been steadily declining for years, and phones now stream all our music, why would anyone ever get a dedicated music player?
The Pono player reaches out to the niche market of audiophiles who desperately want the best quality music. Backed by Neil Young, it has it's own music store with tons of high fidelity music. If you are trying to find a gift for your discriminating audiophile, the Pono Player may just fit the bill.

Marshall Stanmore Bluetooth Speaker
I am a sucker for retro music equipment. From old Vox and Marshall amps to turntables. Marshall has introduced a few bluetooth speakers that take their old school design and mix it with current technology.
The Stanmore is very well build and has great sound. Something small and portable may do for a college student, but if you want a gift for someone who loves music, this is something they will love.

Gibson Neat Brand Microphone
Gibson launched Neat Microphones a few years ago with their flagship line, Bee mics. They all.. looked like bees. With yellow and black stripes. They were.. interesting.
Just recently however, they launched their new line of Widget Microphones. There are 3 models all that have a retro feel with top quality audio. Whether your music lover just records voice overs, or records original tracks, these mics will do the job while look great.

Earhoox for Earbuds
You don't have to tell me. The audio quality on those bundled in earbuds/EarPods are not great. But that doesn't stop countless people from wearing them daily.
If everyone is going to wear the EarPods, they night as well at least stay in! Earhoox are an affordable way to get those buds to stay in place.
