Caseco Blu-Toque Bluetooth Beanie provides warmth and music on cold winter nights.
I love music. I try to take some with me everywhere I go, and it’s actually kind of rare that you don’t see me with headphones on in some form. This is the one time of year this lifestyle sort of falls short – the winter. In my part of the world, when it gets cold – it gets really cold. So, it’s hard to go out and about without covering my ears and head. Fortunately, Caseco designs a form of Bluetooth headphones that are safely concealed inside a sock hat-beanie. Honestly, when I got the chance to review it I thought, “Review a beanie…what?” Then I found it was no ordinary beanie.
Caseco makes products that are ‘designed for life’ and made to ‘fit your lifestyle and meet the demands of your busy workday.’ And as such, they have an entire line of Bluetooth Beanies available to keep you enjoying your music, while also keeping your head and ears warm. Caseco has a unique way of delivering music to you with their built-in earphones, Bluetooth technology, and even a microphone so you can accept phone calls without removing the hat. The electronics are completely removable so that you can clean the fabric of the hat without damaging the unique nature of the Bluetooth Beanie.
Caseco actually has more than 60 styles of Bluetooth Beanies. I tested the Relaxed Chunky Cuff Blu-Toque beanie in gray. The style is very sleek and smooth, and looks like a standard beanie. The Blu-Toque beanie is universal and works with any Bluetooth device – not just your phone. The knit is made from a synthetic wool and certainly keeps you warm. The beanie charges in about 2 hours and gives you approximately 6 hours of music time.
The Blu-Toque beanie has really been a great addition to my winter weather gear this season. It connected to my phone easily and provided a excellent sound. The one thing I don’t like about this Bluetooth beanie is the cable that connects the two speakers together inside the hat. The cable is supposed to be hidden under the fold of the beanie and you can easily keep it hidden by keeping the cable under the flap, but this limits how stretchable the beanie is on your mind cap. So I’ve found, and maybe this is how it’s suppose to be, that if you pull the cable out and let it hang freely, not hidden, then you can stretch the fabric and adjust the beanie as you need. The downside there is that now the cable is visible. To me, it’s not a deal breaker though.
The Blu-Toque Bluetooth Beanie is a very nice option for listening to music on the go in the cold. It’s got a premium sound and does a great job keeping your head and ears warm.
