Holiday Gift Guide 2015

The holidays are upon us! We all know it’s an extremely stressful trying to figure out that perfect gift, so a few flushers put together their must haves for this holiday season.

RFMag Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Plantronics BackBeat SENSE

Plantronics BackBeat SENSE

The Plantronics BackBeat SENSE was a big hit for me in the casual listening headphone department this year. It’s jam-packed with the majority of the functions you’d find in Plantronics’ BackBeat Pro and Pro+ headsets, but it staying at a modest price point of $179. The Plantronics BackBeat SENSE has a lightweight and comfortable frame that looks as good without giving you that DJ-on-the-go look. On top of that, this Bluetooth headphone comes all of the accessories you’d need for any listening or traveling scenario. This headset did well in challenging my personal preference of over-ear headphones as opposed to on-ear ones. It did that so well that I’m suggesting it as a holiday buy.

RFMag Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+

Sure, we’re still reviewing phones now. But it terms of what we received by our Holiday Guide deadline here, the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ were easy pics for me. Choose for yourself which size of a phone is preferable to you. Both phones utilize a unique spin on the “curved” design of phones today, allowing for more screen real estate without having to increase the size of the bezel. Both phones excel in visuals sporting both a robust auto-stabilizing camera and a bright AMOLED screen. With handy features such as Samsung Pay, App Edge and People Edge, this phone is both intuitive and stylish. Out now for most, if not all, the major carriers, both the Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge+ is worth a check this holiday season.

ASTRO Gaming A40 Headset & MixAmp M80 (Xbox One)

There are plently of headsets out there now for the ol’ “xbone”. Since the standard Xbox One controllers don’t have the 3.5 mm jack found in the Xbox Elite and Razar Wildcat controllers, manufactuers are forced send their own adapters with their headsets. The ASTRO Gaming A40 Headset & MixAmp M80 make that a bit easier for gamers to swallow. Haven’t tried the ASTRO Gaming A40? You may be missing out on a good open-ear headset. Already have one?

With the introduction of the Astro’s mod kits, you can even turn this open-ear headset into a closed ear one on the fly. Do read up on why this is a good buy for the holidays here

RFMag Holiday Gift Guide 2015: Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

Sometimes the best gifts are FREE and highly addictive. Collectible Card Games were always around since board games, but Blizzard Entertainment really dove deep into its history to bring out the best in what makes CCG’s fun. This game is free to play for all, if you wish you can pay to buy booster packs for more cards to increase your robust collection, but the packs can also be obtained with the in-game currency. The cards also have personalities and visual appeal of their own which I find is the highlight of the game. From opening packs, battling your friends and foes, and contesting in ranked play, this game has it all. The game stays fresh with frequent content updates and expansions with the latest being League of Explorers which adds the Discovery mechanic to certain cards. Hearthstone is accessible in all forms, you can kick back and enjoy it on your laptop/desktop or take your card collection and decks on the go on tablets and phones (Android/iOS only).

Jurassic World

Want to sit cozy by the fire while watching great films? Jurassic World is one of the best movies 2015 has to offer. Plenty of suspense, great action, and a lot of larger-than-life dinosaurs. Chris Pratt truly shines in this film with adding his charm and flair to the story.
