Holiday Gifts Under $500

They say it’s the thought that counts, but that doesn’t mean you should pay too much.

For a music or movie lover, or a discerning gamer, or really anyone who wants to hear fine detail, even if they are in a noisy space, there is nothing quite like the combination of quality sealed in-ear monitors and active noise canceling to create a personal listening space anywhere. And that’s what AirPods Pro offers.

AirPods Pro earns its place among the best True Wireless IEM-style earbuds in their price range, regardless of brand, and this is true even when not on sale. Unless you explicitly do not want noise-canceling and better sound, at the sale price of $199.99, they are an easy choice over the new AirPods 3.

Astonishing output with deep low-frequency extension down to 16 Hz. Features run the gamut: 550 W (1500+ peak) Sledge amplifier with fully discrete MOSFET output, 12-inch SVS driver, and the SVS subwoofer DSP smartphone app. Constructed with a dual-port design for clean bass, with minimal distortion

Clear Dialogue; Seamless Soundstage A center speaker has a challenging part to play. It has to be a soloist - delivering clear and natural dialogue across a broad soundstage. A split second later it has to fill the role of back-up band - melding with the ambiance of the environment to contribute realism in movies and music. The Prime Center Speaker delivers on both of these demands with world-class precision via its 1" aluminum dome tweeter dedicated and independently sealed 3.5" midrange driver and dual 5.25" woofers - a true three-way design that is a rarity for center channel speakers in their price class. Voicing is neutral and natural bringing dialogue and vocals forward just enough to be clear and intelligible SVS Prime Center Speaker (Premium Black Ash)

340W RMS power; 5-1/4" spun copper injection molded graphite (IMG) woofer; 1" aluminum tweeter; vinyl woodgrain finish; Bass Reflex enclosure; 62Hz - 21kHz frequency response; 93dB sensitivity; 8 ohms nominal impedance; removable grille

Spectacular imaging, low distortion, and perfectly balanced sound make the Monolith M1060 a true audiophile listening experience. Planar Driver and Functions Planar Drivers Open Back Design Comfort Planar Drivers: Not your typical headphone driver! A planar magnetic driver is a flat membrane that is surrounded by magnets. When current is delivered, the membrane produces sound that has lower distortion, better bass, and pinpoint imaging that is usually not found in your typical headphone driver. The size of the driver in the Monolith™ M1060 is 106mm. Open Back Design: Instead of an "inside your head" isolated experience that traditional closed-back headphones provide, open-back headphones provide a holographic listening experience. It's as if you're in the middle of a live performance, instead of being closed off from the world. Comfort: The Monolith™ M1060 has been engineered to be comfortable for extended listening sessions. Large, comfy earpads made of faux leather and a padded headband are designed to keep you comfortable as you listen. 5 Year Replacement Warranty Monoprice™ not only stands behind
