It’s no secret that men love their gadgets. According to ddB Worldwide Communications Group’s Lifestyle Study, approximately 27% percent of men are a different person when they’re online. Also, if it were up to 35% of male shoppers, they would never go to the mall or store to purchase something. We don’t need numbers to know how much men have been fascinated by technology, so if you are thinking of giving your hubby a special something, you should choose from one of the following high end gifts for men. Some of them are awesome and useful, while others are just cool. The point is that they will excite almost every man. A few weeks ago we discussed about 100 Best Gifts under $50 for men, but much has happened since then. Many apps and great gadgets were released.
There has never been a better time to focus on technology (and as time passes by, new opportunities will probably arise). The problem here is how to wade through the mass of new gadgets that are released on the market every day. Are you looking for a Home theater, a robot to take care of all the cleaning or a pair of awesome headphones? We have it all! Whether you want to snoop around or just get the best tech-experience, here is an innovative collection of “toys”. Take a look at some of the most unique high end gifts for men this season.
10 High End Gifts for Men
Is your male-friend an Android fan? Does he happen to own an Android flagship or smart-phone of his own? Then we have just the perfect gift idea for him: The SONY SmartWatch 2 is an Android compatible SmartWatch that works with One-Touch NFC. It was designed to enhance the Android experience by introducing new and exciting methods of living and communicating. The idea is simple: one must basically “sync” his/her smart-phone and smart-watch via Bluetooth, and efficiently change his lifestyle. The great thing about this gadget is that it makes it possible to use the smart-phone without having to pull it out of the pocket or bag.
Its functions vary from music control, to social media notifications, calls, messages or chats. Every time someone writes or calls, the nifty device vibrates on the wrist in order to alert the bearer. The wrist can hold information from texts/chats, email, calendar, call log, Facebook, Twitter, Gmail etc. (which is quite impressive). Thanks to the multi-layer color touchscreen you can easily navigate and read all notifications. The best thing about it is that it can take the rain, it can be used when running, or even in the gym which makes it pretty convenient, and a must have for a busy gentleman.
The two most important things when looking for a pair of epic headphones is: sound, and comfort. If you work as a DJ or anything related to music, you will probably have to spend more than eight-hours a day with them on your head. These are two things that you should consider before buying a pair of headphones, especially for a guy, as they are very picky with their gadgets. The House of Marley Stir it Up on Ear Headphones – Freedom Collection, three-button Apple mic might be just the thing. It has a unique design, and at the moment it is on sale. (more than 100$ were cut from its initial price).
- Durable canvas headband
- FSC certified Beechwood, recyclable aluminum, and ultra soft leather ear pads
- Integrated Microphone with Three-Button Remote
- 4 ft. braided cable with recycled plastic strain relief
- Storage case
You will be more than satisfied with the sound quality of skype or other video calls, even if there are other noises on the background. Also, if your friend has hearing aids, the Marley ear bads will fit over their years easily.

This tiny gadget is without a doubt one of the best things that could ever happen to over 3300 people that reviewed it, and many other. No gentleman should be caught dead without it. It is the perfect example to the saying strong potions are kept in small bottles. The Anker Astro Mini Ultra-Compact Portable Lipstick can fully charge all types of 3G and above iPHones, it can render 1 full charge of 90+hours of audio playback and it is made from the highest-quality microchips and parts.

Of course battery life differs drastically between those models. As a result the phone would run out of juice most of the time.

How is it possible that over one thousand of reviews have given the best score for the Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS DSLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens package? Simple: Canon has created yet another advanced camera for professional photographers and newbies alike.

We thought really heard over whether or not to put this little guy on the list. In a way it is interesting, but we weren’t convinced that it is actually high-end gifts for men material. That was until we read some reviews, and learned more about all of its functions. It definitely deserves a mention on our list, not just because it is useful, but also because it is cool, and as we said before, men love cool. So what does this little guy do?
It is basically a robot, or smart toy, that can operate as a gaming system. According to manufacturers it will change the way people play. Sphero 2.0 has been completely re-engineered for a completely new experience. If Einstein and C-3PO had a baby, this would probably be it. The small gadget uses an AI super drive for speed and other capabilities. Its led is also lighter than before, and it has a better placed center of gravity. Anyway, Orbotix’s Sphero 2.0 will immerse the user in a world of mixed-reality, where real and virtual elements are merged together. It provides with lots of games, and apps like The Rolling Dead, and it is also compatible with several iOS and Android systems, for more user friendly programming and sharing. It is definitely a must-have for gentlemen with a little spunk in them.
This may look like a sphere, but it is nothing like the previous example. This AYL Portable Mini Capsule Speaker System rechargeable Mini speaker system Smartphones, Tablets, MP3 Players, Computers, Laptops, Cell Phones, iPhone 6S is basically an ultra-portable, light weight device that can be used for volume, control, playing, pausing and previous/nexting of tracks. It works with the help of an inbuilt-high capacity lithium battery that can last even 10 hours and is connected with usb power adapter or standard USB port.
Looking for high end gifts for men? Here’s one! We do not recommend many laptops (except of course if we are trying to present laptops and convertibles in an exclusive article, but the Lenovo IdeaTab has impressed us so much, that we simply had to share it. It is definitely one of the sturdiest, most reliable tablets on the market right now. Used by itself, it can provide more than enough control for average Facebook browsing, social sharing, email checking and other stuff like this. All in all, the device offers solid performance (thanks to its spectacular specs that you can check out later), and beautiful image quality. There is nothing to say against it, because it’s perfect.
