Reborn of your non-wireless devices: Bluetooth Transmitter Review
Bluetooth transmitter works in the opposite way Bluetooth receiver does. It is used primarily with the source player while the receiver does most of its jobs with the output devices. Like those home stereo systems many old good players are lack of wireless function that limits their possible wide usages nowadays. But with the help you get from the Bluetooth transmitter these fine CD Players, iPods, kindles, MP3/MP4 etc can be effortlessly transformed into a wireless streaming machine. Only if you want to do that.
Compared with Bluetooth music receivers for home audio, these Bluetooth stereo transmitters are tiny in size and don’t have complex output slots. A 3.5mm jack is the common audio-out for the majority of this category. The diminutive size and built-in battery give your Bluetooth transmitter true mobility and make it a perfect match for outdoor activity such as climbing and hiking. We select some high quality Bluetooth transmitter to review and provide a detailed table with more technical details. Some products are equally capable of receiver function.
It is a pity Bluetooth cannot provide true Hi-Fi now. If you want that a Wi-Fi music receiver will help you. It supports more formats including lossless codecs: FLAC, ALAC, AIFF, WAV.
Avantree Saturn mini apt-x Bluetooth Receiver and Transmitter 2-in-1
Avantree Saturn Receiver and Transmitter 2-in-1 is unique member in Bluetooth family. It only has a very petite size 1.5 x 1.1 x 0.4 inches and a very light weight of 0.3 ounces. But within this limited box the manufacturer equips it with a long lasting rechargeable internal lithium battery and the new apt-x codec for both transmission and receiving mode. The sound quality under apt-x is no doubt better than that previous SBC and AAC standard. The most valuable convenience you get from this amazing gadget is some old portable hifi players like Rio Karma be turned into a reborn wireless audio player.
Update: Avantree has a pro model which use the Apt-X Low Latency technology reduce the latency time largely to less than 40ms. The other features are similar you can see detail on the same page of Avantree Saturn Receiver and Transmitter 2-in-1 on Amazon.com
MEE audio Connect wireless Bluetooth audio transmitter with apt-X low latency for dual headphones
MEE audio Connect Bluetooth transmitter has two key features which make it the perfect partner for your HDTV. First like Avantree Saturn mini it also has the newest low latency apt-X codec on board to ensure you get better video audio sync than before, as mentioned before the latency is less than 40 ms. Second it supports two Bluetooth headphones or speakers at the same time with high-quality digital audio streaming. You get full freedom to share the TV shows you like with your wife/husband/boyfriend/girlfriend and without bothering others around you.
Furthermore, in order to obtain the true HD wireless sound from your HDTV it has digital and analog connectivity within a tiny box. By that I mean you can connect it to the toslink slot on the back of your TV or AV receiver and config to stereo audio output to get a high-fidelity, low latency audio with aptX®-enabled headphones. And I just have to figure out with the build-in lithium battery it is travel friendly as well. Purchasing a pair of apt-X bluetooth headphones and this adapter you will have a private cinema just between you and the one you love.
HomeSpot Dual Stream Optical Digital Wireless HD Bluetooth Audio Transmitter
As a new Bluetooth transmitter the HomeSpot has 2 features that make itself more attractive than others: the dual connectivity and the digital optical input. It can support two Bluetooth phones simultaneously. The Toslink Optical input makes it compatible with other old good source device. The Toslink Cable is also included in the package. It also has LL apt-X to ensure you the high fidelity audio quality and minimize lip sync latency when you watch TV or enjoy a movie.
The only pity is that although it has digital S/PDIF input but only uncompressed PCM audio signals are supported by this Bluetooth Transmitter. It cannot handle Dolby AC-3, DTS, or other surround sound signals. As for now, there is no Bluetooth transmitter can do that, if you want a true wireless music system. The Wi-Fi music speaker seems the only option presently.

Keedox 2-in-1 Bluetooth CSR 4.0 Audio Transmitter and Receiver adapter
This is a mini yet powerful device it is with apt-x in both transmitting and receiving mode. And that is the latest low latency just like the above Avantree Saturn mini receiver. The most exciting feature for this 2-in-1 transceiver is that. Keedox is capable of sending signal to two bluetooth headphones at the same time. It can be also decried as simultaneous connection with both bluetooth headphones. That would be great if you wish to share some audio content between you and your intimate one. It has a tiny square body and the battery life is up to 15 hours. All features claimed this is wonderful bluetooth transmitter. The only thing I am not pleased with it is the connection issue. To be specific although it provides simultaneous connection with 2 bluetooth playback devices but you are requested to manually pair with the second one each time you want to use this function.

It is very easy to pair and operate and like other bluetooth device it can remember the devices once paired with so you don’t need to repeat the next time you want the same thing.

Like other people, I found a little noticeable delay. Once you forget it’s there, it does not bother me at all. You only notice them when you think of them.

NoiseHush NS560 Multiple Colored Clip-on Bluetooth Stereo Headset for all Tablet, Apple iPad/iPhone and Cell Phones
NoiseHush NS560 series bluetooth stereo headset has a decent Bluetooth dongle but a cheap low rated headphone(which means nothing to me, for I only want its transmitting function with my own headset). This NoiseHush Bluetooth transmitter part has a modern slim design. It contains necessary transmission chip, a 6 hours battery and a noise cancelling microphone in a tiny lightweight body. Not to mention the fact that all essential control can be done with its elaborately arranged buttons. It has a miniature clip to be attached to a bag belt, clothes or anywhere you want.
The Bluetooth version is V2.1 with supporting of A2DP for better music feedback. In our tests and from reviews of other consumers the performance is good. Easy to pair and navigate with one hand. Once you get familiar with it all things can be done even without need to look at it. The battery can last for at least 6 to 8 hours during one cycle, and a fully charge needs only 2-3 hours. For sound quality I cannot say it is comparable to a wired connection, but the sound is also not so bad as other criticism reviews. Consider of price and the convenience it provides I compromise with some possible hiss and pops.
Jumbl Bluetooth Hands-Free Calling & A2DP Audio Streaming Adapter/Receiver for 3.5mm Devices – Converts Wired 3.5mm Headphones into Wireless Music Streaming Stereo Earphones
Jumbl Bluetooth transmitter and NoiseHush one are more like siblings even twin. They have the exact same looking and with the same ergonomic quick-control buttons at the same place. Jumbl also provide mutiple colored models like its competitor does. The only difference is Jumbl does not contain a headset in its package(maybe they have the same idea for this product as we do). Jumbl has also got a lot of positive rating among those purchasers. Its light weight makes it a perfect partner to be used with your own earbuds. Probably these two Bluetooth transmitters are from the same designer or the same factory only labeled separately.
