Ten... Father's Day gifts

Delights for daddy-o

5 things you didn’t know about cloud backup

Sennheiser HD 598

RH Numbers

After bombarding my dad's flat last Christmas with cans still in my possession from various headphones roundups, I realised his and my tonal preferences couldn't be further apart. I look for cans with a booming bass response, yet he preferred the more balanced output, taking quite a shine to these Sennheisers.

While headsets such as the Bowers and Wilkins' P5 undoubtedly have a fatherly appeal, you can't go wrong with the Sennheiser HD598s, which have a spacious balanced sound and a retro design to tickle any old timer's fancy. Anything that looks like the interior of a 1970s Mercedes would though, eh?

Zombie shopping mall experience

RH Numbers

Specialist experience provider Wish.co.uk offers the chance to be surrounded by 'real' maniac zombies, gunning them down with airsoft weapons within a dilapidated shopping centre in Reading.

Perhaps being chased by the undead will put too much pressure on the old heart or drive a man to early incontinence, but if your dad is fit and able, running around shooting zombies in an abandoned shopping mall could be right up his street. As a George Romero fanboi, my old man would love it. Better hurry up, though, places are limited. ®
