2. Logitech G Astro A30 – $398.00
- Listen to multiple devices simultaneously
- Customisable tags
- Compatible with a large range of devices
- Well balanced audio
- Can’t listen to Xbox and PlayStation simultaneously
- Logitech G app is cumbersome
- Detachable mic and internal mic are not great
The Logitech G Astro A30 is a gaming headset that will appeal to a person with specific requirements – hearing audio from multiple devices without having to change headsets.
The highlight here is the ability to hear audio from two different sources simultaneously. If you’re fortunate enough to have multiple devices, you can pause one and play the other without changing headsets. For example, I connected the Astro A30 to my PS5 and my PC simultaneously, and all I had to do was pause one and then play the other. It’s great. Similarly if you want to hear phone notifications through your headset while gaming, you can do that too.

It has a nice, balanced, ergonomic design and the ability to bind virtually any control to one of its plethora of inputs, via the Logitech G Hub software, is first class.

If you’re lost when it comes to what to get your girlfriend, wife, mother, sister or daughter for Christmas, look no further. This guide will help you choose the perfect gift for the special woman in your life.

1. JBL Charge 5 – $229

If you already own a Charge 4 or even a Charge 3, there isn’t enough here to warrant upgrading to the Charge 5; however, if you’re looking for an affordable portable speaker, then you’re going to love the Charge 5.
Its IP67 rating means you’ll never have to worry about it. You can take it anywhere, and it’ll be fine. It’s a solid outdoor speaker.
