I received a cool knit hat for Christmas, with little Bluetooth speakers built in. I paired it with my phone, and listen to Pandora with it.
The problem is the usable range from phone to hat is really short. I mean like inches.
If I put my phone in my pants pocket (where my phone normally lives), the sound cuts in and our like a CD skipping. If I carry the phone in my hands, I need to keep my hands at chest level to not interrupt the sound.
I have taken to walking around carrying the phone in my sweatshirt hood. The audio works fine like that, but the phone tends to fall out and hit the ground if I move around too much.
I don’t think it’s a phone sending problem, because I also have a small Bluetooth speaker that I use when working on my motorcycle. I can walk about 15 feet away from the speaker, with my phone in my pocket, before the sound cuts out.
Is there any way to improve the range of the Bluetooth hat? I try to keep it fully charged, but that does not seem to make a difference.
