    I think Christmas is coming sooner and sooner each year. At least it sure feels that way. We've geared up our annual Electronics Christmas Gift Buying Guide in an effort to let you know about what we think is great and enticing in the market. It may not be largely home theater-based, but that's because this is the time of year when we branch out into other areas and just include what we think is compelling, innovative, or well... just plain bizarre. In either case we hope this electronics buying guide serves you well as you prepare for the Christmas buying frenzy.

    If I "gifted" her the OmniMount ActionMount Play40DS TV Wall Mount, I swear my wife will find a way to mount my head using it.

    I'm not sure why wearing Yamaha headphones would make me feel like I'm riding a Ducati...but I'm trying not to be offended! :p

    cheaper over the ear headphone suggestion?

    Anyone have any suggestions for a cheaper (maybe $50) over the ear headphones?

    Skull Candy? These will be for a pre-teen son, so they have to have a coolness factor.

    Looking for reasonable good sound quality vs. cost - and many of the brands are unfamiliar to me.

    Thanks!

    Also liking what I'm seeing about Grado SR60i - but they are "open back" so I beleive that means (to some extent) veryone will hear the music...

    Yup, open back means there will be sound leaking out.

    If you're looking at the Grado's and going over budget by 80%, you might as well spring for the SR80's and over budget 100% :D.

    Trinket Boxes

    Trinket Boxes are perfect to keep jewels and other trinkets. The adornments on the top of the trinket boxes vary according to the designers and clients whims and fancies. Make charming gifts to celebrate a special occasion or simply to brighten someone's day.

    How much do Grados leak? Is it that people sitting next to you on bus will know what you're listening too as something just a bit more that 'pink' noise, or is leakage enough to cause people to complain? ~assuming normal, healthy volume levels.
