Be Headwear Bluetooth Beanie

The BE Headwear Bluetooth beanie gives you the freedom to be with your music on the go without worrying about wires.

The Beanies come in wide range of fashion styles and sizes but one thing they all have in common is a little bit of technology sewn into the seam - a Bluetooth receiver connected to a couple of speakers and a microphone.

That means you can wear your beanie while running (or have it on under your helmet while snowboarding) and at the same time, you can stream tunes and receive phone calls without having to take your phone out of your pocket.

Available from select Snow Sports shops nationwide and Mitre 10 Mega stores.

Recommended retail price: $69.00
