10 Cool Gadgets That Girlfriends Won’t Care About

We’re living in a golden age of technology, which means it’s tempting to invest in a new gadget every other week. But we know you don’t want to blow your hard-earned money on something that’s just the newest or shiniest thing on the market, so we’ve handpicked this list of our 10 favorite gadgets right now. Your girlfriend might not care about your techy toys, but we do. You’re welcome.

Gadget #1 – Shure SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones
Developed from personal monitor technology and road-tested by professional musicians, the SE215 Sound Isolating Earphones are suitable for both personal listening and professional monitoring. Each pair comes with sound Isolating sleeves in multiple sizes to provide up to 37 dB of isolation and a customized fit. There’s also the enhanced bass of the Dynamic MicroDriver to drown out the sound of your girlfriend harping on you for listening to music instead of her.  (Price: $99.99 BUY)




Gadget #2 – Wake App For iPhone

Meet Wake for iPhone. Right now you’re probably thinking “It’s just an alarm app…is it really that cool?” Yes, it is. Wake offers the choice of three alarm styles: the Slap & Flip (equipped with a virtual snooze button – slap it to snooze or flip the phone to turn off the alarm), the Shake (designed for deep sleepers who need something more heavy-duty – shake the phone until the Shake Bar is filled up and the alarm shuts off), and the Swipe (a basic alarm clock). (Price: $1.99 BUY)


Gadget #3 – Xbox One
The latest innovation coming out of Xbox headquarters is the Xbox One, an all-in-one entertainment system designed to blow the mind of even the most hardcore gamer. The state-of-the-art gaming console offers a new generation TV and movie system, incredibly lifelike games, intelligent Kinect technology that learns about its user, and Blu-ray capability. You may never leave the house again.  (WWW)


Gadget #4 – Full Size Racing Car Simulator
Nothing you can say will convince me that this isn’t an essential piece of household decor. Every man deserves the chance to live out his childhood fantasies of being the next Michael Schumacher. With this Full Size Racing Car Simulator, it’s possible. The F1-style car is manufactured by specialist racing car and simulator constructor FMCG International, who have been producing high-end single seater show cars and simulators since 1986.  (Price: £89,999.89 BUY)


Gadget #5 – BeoPlay Headphones
An 86 year history with Bang & Olufsen informs the portable products from B&O Play. The BeoPlay H3 and H6 Headphones are the latest additions to the line of music accessories that upgrade the listening experience. The H3 and H6 put a check in every box – their design is sleek and contemporary, their performance is unbeatable, and their high-quality craftsmanship ensures that they’ll be with you for a long time to come.  (WWW)


Gadget #6 – Nexersys PRO Unit For Boxing
Remember that thing you had as a kid that you thought was the coolest toy ever? It wasn’t. This is the coolest toy ever. The Nexersys PRO Unit For Boxing is basically a playground for adults. 7 leather covered strike pads with 3 axis accelerometers provide power, accuracy, and strike count feedback, while an onboard computer provides a customized and interactive training experience. It’s one part game, one part personal trainer, and all parts awesome.  (Price: $6,995.00 BUY)


Gadget #7 – Edge Of Belgravia Ceramic Series Knives
If you love cooking, you’ll love these. If you don’t like cooking, you’re about to. Edge of Belgravia’s Ceramic Series Knives are way cooler than your average kitchen knife. Not only are they perfectly weighted and extremely sharp, they also look damn cool. Gotta love that black and lime green color scheme, and the edgy handle design.  (Price: $55.00-$129.90 BUY)


Gadget #8 – Zippo Stainless Steel Wallet
Everyone knows the Zippo lighter is a style staple, but what about the underappreciated Zippo Stainless Steel Wallet? The stainless steel makes for an unexpected and masculine wallet material, and it serves a very important function: it’s built to suppress the signal sent from a Radio Frequency ID chip, protecting against credit card theft. Your girlfriend will be glad no one else could get to your credit cards before she could.  (Price: $49.95 BUY)


Gadget #9 – GoPro HERO3: Black Edition
The Wi-Fi enabled HERO3: Black Edition is the most advanced GoPro camera yet. At just 2.6 ounces, it’s 25% lighter and 30% smaller than previous GoPro models making it more wearable than ever before. It records video at 2X the resolution and 2X the frame-rate of earlier releases, and offers 3X faster photo performance. Improved sharpness, less distortion, and a redesigned audio system make the HERO3 the most versatile GoPro camera to date.  (Price: $399.99 BUY)


Gadget #10 – Alias Home-Gym-Office Chromed Single Barbell
The problem with working out at home or in the office is that, unless you have a big enough pad to create a dedicated workout room, worn and scattered gym equipment tends to make for rather unsightly interior design. Enter the Alias Home-Gym-Office Chromed Barbells, which are exactly the opposite. Their sleek, curvy shape is so beautiful you could probably put it on a table and pass it off as a trendy objet d’art. Or a sex toy.  (Price: $152.00 BUY)
