This past Christmas I was gifted with a Tenergy Bluetooth Beanie and have decided to write a review to share my experience with it so far. In this Tenergy bluetooth beanie review, I will share information on how it works, how well it works, pros and cons, and my overall experience. By the end of this review, you should have a good idea on whether the Tenergy bluetooth beanie is a good choice for you.
How it Works
The Tenergy bluetooth beanie has a built in bluetooth headset. It has a wireless range of up to 33 feet and contains V4.2 tech that is meant to make pairing to devices quick and simple.
A built-in mic system enables hands free calling so you’ll be able to answer calls while you’re on the go. A panel display on the ear of the beanie makes it easy to control your music as well as phone calls. There are 3 prompt buttons and an LED indicator light on the panel. The controls are simple and makes it convenient to talk on the phone or listen to music hands free.
The beanie also contains headphone slits that makes it easy to remove and insert the bluetooth headphones. Therefore, you can wash the beanie as needed put the headphones back in right after.
There is a built-in rechargeable battery with a 2.5 hour charging time that supposedly provides up to 6 hours of music or talk. The charging port is placed inside the beanie so you won’t have to remove the headphones to charge.

The design of this bluetooth beanie makes it easy to enjoy music and hands free calling while on the go. Now it is time to determine if the product works the way it is advertised. The rest of this review will focus on my experience using the product.
After expressing my interests in wearable tech to my mom, she surprised me with this bluetooth beanie this past Christmas. Because I’m always ripping and running, it was a perfect fit for me.
The beanie came neatly packaged in a small white box that contained the usb charger and a small user manual. The user manual wasn’t very long because the steps were simple enough.
When i opened the package, the first thing I did was charge my beanie. As mentioned in the section above, the charging port was located inside the hat, therefore I didn’t have to go through the hassle of taking the headphones out the hat to charge it.
I charged it for a few hours and decided to try it on and see how well it worked. Before I even paired the device, I was satisfied with how comfortable the beanie was. I also walked outside to see how it does in the cold weather, and it kept me pretty warm, which was already a plus in my book.
Next was the pairing process. The process was extremely easy. All I had to do was turn on the hat by pushing the power button on the small control panel. The LED light began to blink letting me know it was in pairing mode. Once that was done, I scanned for devices and my phone found it immediately. That’s all it took to pair, two simple steps.
Next was to test the quality of the headphones. I played some music from my phone to see how clear the sound was. I was pleased to hear that my music played very clearly and had good volume to it. The music was loud enough to enjoy but of course it did not block out sound around you. I think that is a good thing because if you go running or do some outside activity, you will still be able to pay attention to everything in your surroundings.
The sound check ended up with great quality, so it was time to test the built in mic system. I used my aunt as a test dummy and called her from my phone. When she answered I heard her voice clearly. When I asked her how clear does my voice sound, she said i sounded normal. When I told her I was testing out my new hat she let me know that it sounded like I was directly on the phone. So the mic check passed as well.
As an active person, I began to test out how well my music played while I was being active. So i went for a quick jog to see if that affected how well the sound quality was. Nothing changed and I still heard my music as clear as ever.
So overall my experience with my bluetooth hat has been good one. I’ve used it numerous times since I received it for Christmas and haven’t had any problems so far. The sound quality is great, the built – in mic system works well, and the material of the hat is comfortable and warming. It definitely makes it convenient to talk and listen to music on the go.
On Amazon, out of 368 reviews, it received 4 out of 5 stars.
Pros and Cons
Based on my own experience and the customer reviews of others on Amazon, I have listed some pros and cons.
- Easy to pair
- good quality material
- detachable headphones for washing
- no hassle with wires
- great battery life
- unisex design
- Speakers not as loud as regular headphones
- bluetooth range
Based on my overall experience, I would highly recommend this product to those who are looking for hands free calling and music. It’s great for people who are active and need to be kept warm at the same time. It can be used just about anywhere, such as work, outside activities, and even in the movies (I tried it myself :P). On Amazon it received 3.9 stars out of 5, which shows the pros outweighs the cons.
