Open-air speakers allow the wearer to listen to music and even take calls, with the discreet control panel on the side allowing for easy navigation. This is a gadget that will compliment their wardrobe and tempt them to say “go-go gadget sunglasses” until you get sick of hearing it.

These earbuds adjust the noise cancelation to the user’s ear specifically, to optimize the listening experience and block outside sounds for a crisper experience. Access music, adjust the EQ, and complete software updates from the app for full control over the earbud’s full audio potential. Your friend can even use voice commands with Siri while on the go.
