You’ll never be stranded without your headphones with this Bluetooth beanie in your back pocket. It’s just as functional as it is stylish — the soft built-in speakers provide HD sound, and you can even adjust the volume or hit pause without reaching for your phone thanks to some discreet navigation buttons on its small leather patch. Connect your smartphone and rock out to your favorite music or take phone calls, then charge it back up via USB when you’re deskside again.
