  • Works great!
  • There may be a micro-second delay sometimes and nothing that will interfere with movie watching. When everyone is asleep I plug this adapter to the TV 3.5mm audio jack and pair my LG Pro Bluetooth headset with this adaptet and it's movie time! Just what I wanted. Anker products are good!

  • Overall satisfied and would recommend this product
  • Product was very easy to set up. Connected in the first attempt itself to my Bose Bluetooth headphones. The quality was good with a negligible lag in the audio. It was very small and handy. The only drawback was that the aux cable coming in the box is very short, so you might want to get a longer cable separately, which is easily available and not very expensive either. I use the transmitter option and use it with my Sony tv.

Work w/ old-school stereo setup & iPod?

I was wondering if, by using two of these, I could succesfully plug one (in receiver mode) into my old non-bluetooth stereo receiver/amp and one (in transmit mode) into my iPod and pair them. If that will work, I assume I'd use the 3.5mm>RCA cable to plug the receiver/amp Anker into an auxillary jack on the receiver/amp? I don't have bluetooth speakers - they are wired to the receiver/amp.

Also, I intend to get a pair of bluetooth headphones and I understand how to pair them with the Anker to listen to my iPod, but let's say I wanted to listen with the headphones to some records played through my stereo; could I change the Anker that's plugged into my receiver/amp to transmit mode, plug it into the headphone jack on the receiver/amp and listen through the bluetooth headphones?

Thanks

Yes, you can pair them together just fine and your outputs/inputs will be via 3.5mm audio jack.

Sorry, I just realized this doesn't come with the 3.5mm>RCA cable, but I have one anyway.

DaveK - each of these are both transmit and receive. I only have one so I haven't paired it with another Anker unit but they should talk to each other fine. You use the 3.5mm jack to both transmit and receive (the USB is for charging). So from there as long as your send device has a 3.5mm audio out (adaptable as you say to RCA if needed) and your receive device has a 3.5mm audio in (adaptable if needed to RCA) you should be good. I have used this little TX/RX unit a dozen different ways and it works with all kinds of configurations. Just know that the range (like most Bluetooth products) isn't tremendous. I can use it across a normal size room but it loses signal in an adjacent room that's line of sight.

how does this product connect

I want to use this to transmit from my laptop to bluetooth enabled speakers.  Will I need to connect through the audio jack on the laptop or through the USB connection?

It's like a wireless receiver. Hook it up to your device and pair it with your speakers.

It uses the audio jack on your laptop. The USB port is for charging.

Sure. I have both and it's simple. Just plug the Anker into the earphone jack of the iPod and pair with the BT speaker. Anker has posted the instruction manual above.

I have tried to pair your device with two different blueray headsets without success. The application is to use your device to receive autio from my flatscreen TV. I have hooked your device to the TV through a USB port and used an 3.5 plug to 2 RCA cable between your device and the TV audio outputs. I have tried to pair using two different sets of bluetooth earbuds. Should your unit be on transmit or receive?

I think Anker's instructions for this may be a little off when they instruct to plug the USB into a device. The USB port on this adapter is used to charge it. If it is not charged it won't be able to do anything at all. You plugged the adapter into the USB port on your TV, which is the same as I did when I first got it. However, the USB port on my TV (a Samsung) is used only for uploading firmware updates to the TV and does not supply power, so therefore it can't power the Anker adapter. Otherwise what you're doing is correct, and the Anker adapter should be switched to TX mode. Try charging the Anker adapter using a standard USB charger, like the kind that came with your phone.

By the way, make sure the Anker is turned OFF before switching between RX and TX. Keep your headphones withing 3' (1 meter) of the Anker, which we assume is plugged into the earphone output on your TV and put your headphones into pairing mode. Press and hold the MFB on the transmitter for 5-7 seconds and don't release until the blue LED begins to flash continuously. The transmitter has entered the pairing mode. The transmitter will automatically search for and connect with your headphones. This can take about 2 minutes. After successfully connecting the blue LED on the transmitter will flash twice every 4 seconds.

Can this device be used to listen on Bluetooth headphones to music and video on my media player? If so, I would buy it.The rear panel:

The term media player could refer to a wide range of things. Assuming you are referring to something like an iPod or similar portable music player with a standard 3.5mm earphone jack, yes this absolutely would work with Bluetooth headphones.

Ok, I re-read your question. I didn't see the reference to video the first time. This is an audio only device, it will not transmit video to Bluetooth headphones.

You can use it to transmit to or receive audio from any device that has a 3.5mm audio socket.

To transmit audio FROM your TV to your Bluetooth headphones, start by switching the TX/RX button to the TX mode. Make sure the Anker is turned OFF when you do that. Keep your headphones withing 3' (1 meter) of the Anker, which we assume is plugged into the earphone output on your TV and put your headphones into pairing mode. Press and hold the MFB on the transmitter for 5-7 seconds and don't release until the blue LED begins to flash continuously. The transmitter has entered the pairing mode. The transmitter will automatically search for and connect with your headphones. This can take about 2 minutes. After successfully connecting the blue LED on the transmitter will flash twice every 4 seconds. You can do the pairing before plugging the transmitter in to the TV if you wishe. Your headphones must support Bluetooth A2DP. The transmitter can pair with all audio devices with Bluetooth 3.0 or 4.0 and with Bluetooth standard 2.1 with PIN code "0000", "1234", "1111", or "8888".  Good luck.

question about latency for TV audio
A friend of mine needs an Blurtooth transmitter for TV lestening. One user report I read complained about audio delay. Is there a specification for how much letency there is in this device, or does it depend on circumstances?

I use mine for audio only to transmit to an adjacent room and yes there is latency. I don't think it would be acceptable in a TV application, but there are probably factions that would vary the latency rate. Wouldn't hurt to try it.

It will depend on circumstances, not just with the transmitting device but the receiving device as well.

Anker Transmitter/Receiver Charged?
How Do You Know When Anker Transmitter/Receiver is Fully Charged?  In the manual it says to charge it for 2.5 hours before using but how do you know how much of a charge it currently is while using it and when it needs recharging and when it is fully charged.  Thanks, Jan

The LED will switch off when it is fully charged and will flash red when it needs to be recharged. This is the only battery indications that the transmitter/receiver will give.

This is a really nice product. I have used it successfully for quite a while. It is not the design nor fault of the Anker transmitter tha it can only connnect to one device at a time, it is the way the current Bluetooth standard is. Be patient, multi-device compatibility is coming soon!
