Tech Highlight: What’s Good E-Beanie

The Good: Easily hooked up to different bluetooth devices, simple controls and charges with a standard USB plug.

The Bad: Beanie isn’t stylish, and sound quality is ok, but not incredible.

I’m sure most of us have suffered the pain of wearing headphones under a hat. Sore ears and cold air make it hard to enjoy Miley’s new hit song out there. The E-beanie is a standard beanie, with bluetooth speakers sewn in for all the warmth without the ear crushing. The small speakers are controlled via 3 external buttons and a standard USB port is used to charge the device for a few hours of playback, it even has a built-in microphone for taking calls.

We brought the beanie along for a few camping trips out to the coast and up into the mountains.  The beanie was warm and comfortable, but fell pretty flat on the style aspect. Pulling out the speakers to look at them didn’t really hold much of a wow factor, they did produce decent sound with a predictable lack of low bass but overall had a good range. The microphone was distant but passable for calls, we carried on a few conversations with no problems understanding each other. While the standard beanie is not really a stylish design, it comes in 4 basic colors (also a camo version available) so match it up to your cold weather gear and turn up those tunes.
