1. Noise Cancelling Panels

10 Must-have Gifts For Audiophiles And Music Lovers

Most of us don’t have the money or time to renovate our homes into professional recording studios. Our homes have square rooms with drywall or other sound-reflecting materials. These reflections affect the way we hear music!

These noise-cancelling panels help eliminate those noises so we can listen to the music as it was meant to be heard. They absorb frequencies that tend to reverberate badly. A set of sound absorbing panels would make any music lover or audiophile sing for joy (but probably won’t make their singing any better).

Pro Tip: To see for yourself, clap your hands in your bedroom and listen for a tinny ring that echoes back to you.

Great speakers don’t belong on the floor. And installing wall mounts can be time-consuming, and doesn’t leave you with the option of rearranging the room. This makes these steel speaker stands the go-to option! They are sure to be used often and thoughtfully.

For the uninitiated, speaker stands aren’t just for looking great and keeping expensive stereo speakers off the dirty floor. They have a huge impact on the sound of the speakers by clearing up the sound. This way, frequencies can be kept from reflecting off the floor and getting muddy.

Speaker stands also direct the speakers up towards the listeners ears, so you hear the music first… not the reflections of the walls and floors. It’s the little things that enthusiasts can really appreciate.
