Pros Great Audio quality and range, able to walk around house with iphone without losing signal.
Cons Wall wart adapter.
Summary Would definitely recommend. Haven't used as a transmitter so I can't comment on that function.
"Terribly designed."on by shinklee
Pros 1 - compact
2 - bluetooth
3 - led indicators
4 - looks stylish
Cons 1 - the unit must be turned off and turned back on each time a connection is to be made between this unit and a headphone and it must be connected within 5 minutes of turning this unit on.
2 - only supports a2dp
3 - no digital inputs.
Summary the idea is to make a wireless device that connects to bluetooth stereo headphones, or to receive bluetooth stereo signals.
however, there has been a severe flaw in the design which I am surprised no one from the design dept has caught.
in order to establish a connection the unit must be turned off and back on. to makes things even worse the unit gives only 5 minutes to establish a connection.
even if a connection is lost due to range or intereference the unit must bge turned off and back on to reestablish connection.
so if one wants to shut off the headphones for what ever reason and then want to turn the headphones back on, they have to walk back to unit and turn it off and then turn it back on.
this unit, unlike a cell phone, will not continuously search and try to establish connection with the headset it was paired with.
unfortunately this device will also not with with mono cell phone headsets unless it supports the a2dp stereo protocol.
so dont expect to use this in a manner in which one can keep a bluetooth headphone by the coach and simply turn the headphones on to get sound.
sometimes i wonder if anyone even tests new products.
Pros Easy to pair, small size.
Cons Audio output is way off key.
Summary Ok, I am by no means an audiophile and the quality of this device is pretty poor. The audio is considerably off key, even for the simple little jingles used as alarm clock functions on my Blackberry 8830. Actual music is even worse. This one will be going back tomorrow!
