What to get dad this Father’s Day… that depends on the dad. But there’s no shortage of electronic gadgets and devices that will make him smile. How can we be so sure? Because this stuff is on our lists too.

It’s The Thought (Under $50)

Kickstart that “when I was young” conversation with Dad by putting his iPhone in a retro Musubo protective case resembling an old microphone. Should this be too audiophile geeky, get him the version that looks like sneaker soles.

Dad often takes a pounding, so make him a real Superman with a G-Form shirt. It’s soft and flexible but acts like armor when something hits it.  This breathable compression fabric can even withstand a washing machine, in case he really puts it to the test.

Call Dad’s bluff about his old band. Offer to transfer his garage cassettes using Behringer‘s UPHONO 48kHz audio converters. Or, just say you got it so he can play all that old vinyl of his on an iPod or other mobile device. It’s best to be nice around Father’s Day.

Tell Dad to cut the cord. He’ll barely notice these lightweight Gogroove padded cups cradling his ears; they weigh in at only three ounces and last up to 15 hours on a charge. But he’ll surely notice all the extra goodies, like the built-in microphone and volume control.
