Know someone who loves podcasts or audiobooks? Need to find them the perfect gift? You’re in luck!

You can’t go wrong with any of these options for our 2020 gift guide for podcast lovers and audiobook listeners.

We also have a gift guide for podcasters if that’s what you’re looking for.

Let’s get right into it:

Sennheiser HD 598 Cs Closed-Back Headphones

Sennheiser HD 598 Cs Closed Back Headphones

The Sennheiser HD 598 Cs wired closed-back headphones are well-regarded for their sound quality. Lots of padding means you can listen to podcasts, audiobooks, and music for hours without getting sore.

The cable can be switched out depending on your needs and because they’re closed-back, they won’t bother anyone else.

Sony WH1000XM4 Noise Cancelling Wireless Headphones

Sony WH-1000XM4

Wireless? Check. Noise Cancelling? Check. Premium audio quality? Check.

These are the perfect travel headphones, but they’ll work just as well around the house or office. You can turn the noise canceling functionality on and off, but it’s probably the best feature in the Sony WH-1000XM4. They’re simply awesome.

Apple AirPods

Apple Airpods

I’ve been using these for years now. The Apple AirPods are easily the best purchase I’ve made. It makes listening to podcasts and music sooo much easier.

They use Bluetooth to connect and you can use them with Android devices as well (Galaxy, Pixel, etc.) – and if you have an Android device you can download an app to see battery levels. iOS shows it automatically, but that shouldn’t be a big surprise.

The updated model comes with a wireless charging case too!

Easy of use on these really is a game changer. And they don’t fall out, or even move around. It’s amazing really.

Sonos One (Gen 2) Smart Speaker

You can ask Alexa to play music or podcasts from most popular apps including Spotify, Pandora, iHeartRadio, and more.

Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 Bluetooth Speaker

Ultimate Ears Boom 3 - Blue

The Ultimate Ears BOOM 3 wireless Bluetooth speaker is waterproof and shockproof. They come in a bunch of different colors and they get really loud.

You also might want to check out the Ultimate Ears MEGABOOM 3 for even bigger sound.

You can also use the free app to pair multiple speakers together.

It’s the perfect way to share your favorite podcasts with everyone – or a great way to listen in the shower.
