Gift idea #3: an Xbox Series S or Nintendo Switch Lite console

A game console is a must-have for tech gifts for teenagers. The advantage this year is that shortages limit stocks of the most expensive models, which leaves all the room for more affordable consoles.

And for this end of the year, Microsoft is doing very well since it is lowering the price of the Xbox Series S to 229 euros against 300 euros usually. So if you want to please your teenager, you couldn't be better off. The Xbox Series S is one of the latest generation consoles. Its particularity: it can only accommodate dematerialized games.

And in this little game, Microsoft dominates the video game market head and shoulders thanks to its Game Pass, a subscription offer giving access to hundreds of games. You pay ten euros per month and your teenager can access this almost unlimited catalog. And then if he wishes, he can buy other games individually with his pocket money.

If they are not the best in terms of sound reproduction, they still deliver very decent audio quality. And the active noise reduction is quite acceptable for a product at this price.

But this is not the best advantage of the Nothing ear(1). Their real strong point, is their transparent design which will not go unnoticed. What to tell a little about it in the courtyard of the college/high school.
