Relays Sport In-Ear MFI Headphones: Superior Sound On the Go
Whether your dad loves pounding the pavement to a pumping musical soundtrack, or you just don’t want to hear his dated music choices around the house, these Relays Sport In-Ear MFI Headphones from Sol Republic are a winning gift idea. Much more than your ordinary earbuds, Sol Republic’s design is made from a spongy material which expands once it’s in your ear to stay firmly in place. They’re sweat- and water-resistant, so your dad needn’t suffer a case of music interruptus! These in-ear headphones also have a built-in microphone for fielding calls from home and a clip to stop them from bouncing around during his morning jog. Fifteen sound engines provide audio quality that’s much mightier than you’d expect from headphones so small.
Galaxy S 6 Edge Smartphone: Samsung’s Premium Cell
All tech-savvy dads need a smartphone for staying in touch with their kids while they’re away and capturing precious memories while the family’s together. No matter what phone your dad’s currently using, he’ll happily trade it in for the Samsung Galaxy S 6 Edge, a slick-looking cell that Samsung calls its most powerful smartphone. Its specs are certainly impressive; with Samsung’s Exynos 7420 Octa-core processor and a 5.1-inch Quad HD display, the phone runs and displays like a dream. The 16-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization will take his family vacation snaps to the next level. Much has been made of the Edge’s curved screen, which looks more sophisticated than the standard S 6 display. However, it’s what you don’t see, like the bigger, faster-charging battery and the lighter design, that makes this premium model, available through T-Mobile, a cut above.
