Christmas Gift Guide: 12 gadgets and presents for music lovers

Pure Evoke F4 (£170)

A whole globe’s-worth of music accessed via a small, shiny box, the Evoke F4 sounds a whole lot bigger than it looks. And if you get bored of listening to EVERY RADIO STATION ON THE PLANET there’s Bluetooth streaming available from any device you have to hand.

SoundMagic E10 (£30)

Nothing about these headphones – the way they look, they way they feel or, most importantly, the way they sound – hints at a pricetag as modest as £35. If you’re going to do the right thing by your portable tunes, there’s no better way to spend your money.

More after the break...

Flava Flav action figure (£20)

Being a music-lover doesn’t automatically mean you have to be precious about it. And nothing says ‘I know how to let my hair down’ like a 12-inch high poseable figurine of Public Enemy nincompoop and renowned clock-fancier Flava Flav. Especially as he comes with a choice of headgear. Yeah bwoy.

Joy Division Box Set (£195)

No vinyl evangelist worth his or her salt should be without one of these limited (to 3000) edition boxes of delight. Both Joy Division albums Unknown Pleasures and Closer, along with double-album compilation Still presented in original packaging (including Peter Saville’s hardboard/hessian/ribbon confection for the latter) and on 180gm vinyl.
