I ordered two, which arrived very quickly, and then it was a simple case of pairing them as transmitter and receiver. They worked perfectly for the duration of the three hour event. They are small enough to tuck out the way, and light enough not to adversely effect the smartphone 3-axis gimbal.
Update: Note this device only supports aptX (in addition to aptX Low Latency) in transmit mode. It does not support base level aptX in receive mode, only SBC. Pairing two of these together has 202 ms latency. If you need it, there are competing products that claim to support aptX Low Latency also in receive mode.
- Great quality
- Pairing is quick and painless
- Sound quality is very good
Cons (in receiver mode)
- When nothing is connected, audible high pitched noise is present sometimes
- Bluetooth device wont automatically pair with the unit when it powers on. Need to enter pair mode (holding power button) every time
Overall a great device for the price.
After reading reviews for this device, I was expecting to get some lag when pairing it with my Plantronics sports earphones to watch TV, however, I was surprised to find that wasn't the case at all for the vast majority of times I use it, I get no perceptible lag, lip syncing is fine. I've found that using a longer 3.5mm stereo cable to connect the transmitter to the TV headphone socket works better than the short one provided with the product, the short cable results in the transmitter having to sit slightly behind my TV, which does result in a little bit of lag, the longer cable, however, means the transmitter can sit on top of my entertainment unit, and in that position it works lag free over a distance of about 4 metres to where I'm sitting.
The device is tiny, so you can easily carry it with you anywhere, it connects to devices via a standard 3.5mm stereo jack and it charges via a standard micro USB port, so there's no proprietary cables involved meaning a lost/damaged cable is extremely easy and cheap to replace.
Couldn't be happier with my TaoTronics Bluetooth Transmitter, I definitely made the right choice when choosing this one over all the other options available.
There's occasional popping though, and sometimes in quiet scenes the music cuts out (even though there should still be some quiet sounds). Not sure if its our earphones or this transmitter.
I previously experienced a pretty bad static hum on my unit but after further testing and playing around with the included cables this appears to have gone away and the situation has vastly improved. I've updated my star rating to reflect this.
The only thing holding this unit back from being excellent is that the UI of pressing the button to make it pair, turn on/off, etc. can be quite fiddly - it isn't particularly intuitive.
All in all I think this unit is a good option for adding BT sound output to devices that don't natively support it. I've paired with my Logitech MX Sound speakers and Apple Airpods - both worked flawlessly.
Picked up one of these off the back of an article I read as a way to link my Nintendo Switch up to bluetooth speakers / headphones. The unit does what it says it will and sound quality for the most part is good but there is a constant low static hum throughout the broadcast which is particularly annoying.
The hum is less noticeable when you have the volume up high but that's probably more of a work around than an actual fix to the issue. There may be other options out there which provide a better experience.
The quality it good, that includes both sound and build.
The aptX low latency makes a huge difference (if your headphones support it). There's virtually no lag.
Thanks to the low latency, I can experience the high-fidelity stereo sound that is always right for you, providing you with a pure sound.
The transmitter can then be easily paired with two Bluetooth receivers at the same time, with up to two headphones or speakers.

The battery lasts longer than my bluetooth headphones plus it can charge while operating so battery life isn't an issue.
Pairing is comparatively simple. Note that the device clears its entire pairing history every time you flip the RX/TX (receive/transmit) switch to the other side. Pairing the TX(transmit) mode is perhaps more difficult because you will typically be pairing with a BT headphone or speaker. Once pairing is activated, the TaoTronics will pair with the "closest" BT device. In reality I guess it just pairs with the strongest audio-capable BT signal it can find. So if there are plenty of BT devices around it could in theory pair with the wrong device, but you'll know when you got it right. I would recommend that you try to pair with your headphones in a space away from other BT noise to keep things simple. For example, I once tried to pair the TaoTronics to my BT headphones without success... until I realized it kept pairing with my TV's soundbar in the room next door :) Moving away solved the problem. Of course, once paired, everything will work fine until you flip the RX/TX switch (which you're unlikely to do often).
Pairing in RX mode is much easier because typically you would be pairing with e.g. a smartphone which allows you to control the the pairing process in a more user friendly way.
The TaoTronics has an internal battery that charges through a normal USB phone charger. It can charge while it is being used.
Highly recommended if you are looking to add BT capability to an older audio device.
How to pair guide and everything needed like usb cable, wires and all are included.
Plus it has a very good battery life too!
The connection sequence is still kind of unclear for me. Here is what I did, Took the transmitter out of box (it's very small, like the size of Nokia 2300 battery), paired it with my Bluetooth speakers and Bluetooth Headset(2 devices allowed, another huge plus). Then connected this transmitter to TV's 3.5 mm jack and changed sound source on TV menu to external speaker. It didn't work... Rebooted tv, still didn't work. Kept the transmitter connected to TV and attempted pairing again, didn't work. Tried to switch to red / white audio out instead of 3.5 mm, still no luck. Switched back to 3.5 mm, paired again and it worked!
So I have no clue what actually made it work. 😆
But once it started working, it's awesome. I've always regretted the poor quality of my TV's sound... But this was the perfect fix.
Bye Bye thoughts of buying expensive soundbars, Hello Bose Soundlink Mini.
I mainly went for this to bring my 2nd gen ipod into the current age of cord cut audio enjoyment. Was unsure about a BT connection without some kind of user intervention/selection, but my BT earbuds quickly found the BT signal of this transmitter when I had it set in transmit mode. I was cord free right away with the old ipod as pictured.
Not only does this help me listen via BT with my old ipod, the same can be done for old AV receivers using the 3.5mm to 3.5mm cable or even TVs using the provided L/R audio to 3.5mm jack cable. The latter might be helpful when in hotel room with family (kid's noisy devices or trying to keep the TV noise down/off when they're down to sleep). Similarly if on a plane without Wi-Fi app for entertainment, and you want to view the inseat monitor entertainment but must use an audio jack - you can plug in the cable with this transmitter connected to enjoy BT audio instead of tangly cable.
Alternatively, if set in receiver mode, it's easy to identify and connect to for use with older sound devices that don't inherently have BT. For example, a rental car (or my personal car) that doesn't have BT for audio, even if it might have BT for connecting phone calls. Note that I pictured the transmitter both with its provided 3.5mm-to-3.5mm cable and also an alternative connector that I already had (makes for a cleaner look when connected).
The convenience of receiving or transmitting BT makes this a useful device whether in immediate need/want or as a part of your travel kit just in case you encounter something that this can be used to enhance your travel.
I was having a hard time buying RF headphones that would only work in my livingroom. Instead, with this adapter in transmitter mode, I can use standard Bluetooth headphones for TV, up to 2 sets, or more with multiple adapters and an audio splitter. And, those headphones (I'm using noise-canceling headphones from TaoTronics and Vipex) can be used on planes, the bus, and lots of places that aren't inside the home. There is the tiniest amount of delay that you'll get with any bluetooth connection, but it's barely noticeable and you forget about it quickly.
I just plug these into the headphone output of my AV Receiver (or you can use the included cable to connect to the RCA audio outputs of your TV) and control everything like normal. I had a similar unit that wouldn't operate while charging; this one will, so you can just leave everything plugged in and on. Switching from headphone output to speaker output is as simple as plugging or unplugging the headphone cable.
I should have bought this 9-months ago.
It comes with cables to connect it to a TV or cable box so you can get TV sound on Bluetooth speakers or headphones, but I have not tried it that way. I bought this just to make my iPod Classic Bluetooth-compatible, and it does the job for that. So I'm happy!
But running 30 feet of heavy duty RCA cable and rock speakers when it gets dark, then rolling it back up around 11 PM and bringing in the speakers every night was such a pain.
Cables no more thanks to this TaoTronics Bluetooth adapter! I am very pleased!

Well done manufacturer! I’m ordering it’s replacement this instant.
UPDATE!!! I must update this review. I unplugged my transmitter, sadly, to dispose of it with honor. It would not shut off, so I left it alone for a day or so. After a day I noticed the light was finally off, so on a hunch I plugged it up again and turned it on. Imagine my joy when I switched on my headphones and heard the Tao Tronics announcement! We’re back baby!!! It’s like Easter around here!
I haven't tried connecting more than one device at a time, but other than that, it works as advertised!
I used it when I visited a sandbox for a few months; it works in an airplane cockpit in receiver mode connected to Bose A20 noise cancelling aviation headset with a line-in, it works in an airliner cabin in the economy steerage class connected to the seat back entertainment system broadcasting to Soundcore Spirit Bluetooth earbuds, it works plugged into a laptop broadcasting to earbuds, and it works plugged into a tape cassette line-in while charging from the cigarette lighter USB charger and receiving Bluetooth audio from an iPhone to bring an older car into the current decade!
Quite often, especially if moving from role to role and connecting with a myriad of different devices, you may need to "forget device" and pair again, but if you're keeping it in one role, that's not frequently needed.
The device keeps a charge for a good amount of time, I've used it on successive 3-hour legs in receiver mode, and on 7-8 hour legs in transmit mode, but it charges while in use, so as long as you have enough cord management solutions, there's no issue.
