Sennheiser shares an audiophile’s gift guide

One of the biggest names in higher end audio, Sennheiser looks to offer something to give or get from all audio angles.

Hear those bells

While it seems to be an element that most video game fans (in particular) put on the back burner, we’ve found that audio can make a big difference in your setup. Good audio hardware can make almost any entertainment experience just that much better, be it handheld or full-on home theater setups. Great hardware, naturally, can also take it to another level.

There are a few companies that most people probably know by heart at the top of that heap, and it’s a list that has to include Sennheiser. Around for 75 years at this point, Sennheiser is a huge name in audio arenas, making items that run the gamut from headphones to soundbars. And while their offerings are not cheap, they have the reputation of getting the job done and then some.

With the Holiday Season rolling in full swing at this point, the company sent us an in-house list of goodies that are on tap for gifting (and maybe getting). So if you’re on the hunt for some ‘sound’ hardware, keep on a-scrolling and see what they have to say.
