A good pair of headphones is one of the essential cool gadgets for men that like their music, and they don't come any better than the Beats Solo headphones by Dr Dre. These over the ear headphones are light and very comfortable to wear. The sound quality is second to none and they provide deep and crisp bass.

Want to get the most out of your Dr Dre Beats Solo HD headphones?
If you want to get the most out of your Dr Dre Beats Solo HD headphones you need a top quality MP3 player. There are literally hundreds of MP3 players available to buy and the prices vary considerably. Unfortunately, the market is saturated with cheap and nasty Asian MP3 players that are made out of inferior components and simply rubbish. When it comes to buying an MP3 player you really do get what you pay for, and I think it is always best digging a little deeper and spending a bit more on an MP3 player that is not only up to the job, but also going to last.
In my opinion the Apple iPod is the best MP3 player, and it seems I am not alone in this thinking. All Apple iPods are well made, durable and the sound quality is simply awesome. If you use an Apple iPod you will never use another branded MP3 player again. The iPod really is that good, and the vast choice means there is an iPod for all tastes and budgets.
Video games are great for men of all ages. One of the best gaming cool gadgets for men is the Playstation Vita. Forget about the Nintendo DS, this is the best handheld gaming machine ever.
