A Bluetooth beanie lets you enjoy music or keep up with important calls while keeping you warm during winter cold. Bluetooth beanies are often considered a better option than wearing a hat on top of headphones when you're engaged in outdoor sports or other physical activities. While the Pococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat is not included in the Best Bluetooth Beanie buyer\u2019s guide, it\u2019s worthy of consideration due to its style and Pococina upgraded Bluetooth support.\r\n\r\nWhy We Like It - Pococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat\r\nThe Pococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat is a warm and stylish beanie that\u2019s also a wireless stereo headphone and microphone. Great for winter activities or outdoor sports. Available in different colors and styles.\r\n\r\nPerformance\r\nThe Pococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat keeps your head warm and has stereo Bluetooth speakers right next to your ears so only you hear music via wireless Bluetooth pairing to any BT device. A built-in microphone enables hands-free calling when paired with a smartphone. A control panel on the outside of the beanie has 3 buttons to control volume and starting\/stopping music. A built-in microphone enables hands-free calling when paired with a smartphone. Women with longer hair may prefer a beanie specifically for their situation and may want to consider a Highever Ponytail Bluetooth Beanie.\r\nDesign\r\nThe Pococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat is a Polyester Acrylic knit blend. There are several solid colors from which to choose. All styles offered are \u201cslouchy\u201d designs giving them larger roomier sizing. Some choices include pom-poms on top. Not as much variety as is available with the SoundBot SB210 Bluetooth Beanie, or the Rotibox Rechargeable Bluetooth Fashional Speakerphone which offers styles in patterns (not just solid colors). Design of the electronics are the same as most Bluetooth beanies (one envisions a single factory in China producing all of them, but who knows?). A 3-button control panel with a built in mic is on one side (really a leather patch allowing for buttons underneath to be clicked). All of the electronics are inside the beanie in small pockets so they can be removed to allow for washing the beanie shell. Sound quality is best when stereo speakers are aligned with your ears just right, but it\u2019s not going to be as high fidelity as stereo headphones. An integrated battery is rechargeable using included USB cable. Their support of Bluetooth V4.2 with EDR (enhance data rate) technology makes pairing with devices easy. Pococina claims battery life of up to 6 hours.\r\nValue\r\nBT beanies are outerwear subject to winter weather and abuse (depending upon physical activities), so the life of even the best BT beanies may be short. The Pococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat is mid-priced compared to other Bluetooth beanies, roughly the same price point as the Redness Wireless BT Beanie (that includes a neck warmer). Pococina says they offer a 12-month warranty for their beanie hat. While the Pococina offering isn\u2019t among the best Bluetooth beanies, it\u2019s representative of most in this product category.\r\nPococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat Wrap Up\r\nThe Pococina Upgraded 4.2 Bluetooth Beanie Hat keeps ears warm while listening to audio content, with less hassle than wearing a wired headset, and zero chance of losing a wireless earbud.
