  • Great little device, highly recommended!
  • Does exactly what it says it does and does it very well at that. I had hoped to be able to use it as a transmitter and listen to my TV but it introduced just enough of a delay to bug me. Works great as a receiver with my old headphones though :)

Charging the Anker transmitter/receiver

I currently own  this unit and it works great but I have a question concerning charging alternatives .I would like to keep the turned off unit in my home audio system cabinet but keep it plugged into my new IQ Anker dual port wall charger all the time so it would always be fully charged when I wanted to use the unit for remote outside use. Will this be possible without damaging either the wall charger or the transceiver? I understand that if I'm going to turn the unit on in the cabinet to receive input from my external devices to my non bluetooth AV receiver in the cabinet then I should probably unplug the unit from the charger for the time I'm using it for inputting a signal to my AV receiver. It is inconvenient to not know just how much charge is left in the battery at any given time before the red led indicates the battery charge is low.

We wouldn't recommend leaving it at 100% charge for so long. If you'll use it fairly regularly then this won't be a problem though.

And just to confirm you cannot use the receiver and charge it at the same time.

Anker Bluetooth Transmitter/Receiver

When in TRANSMITTER mode, can multiple bluetooth receivers connect to this unit. Specifically, can two people with bluetooth enabled headphones listen to the same audio source through this single transmitter?

If not, does Anker make a unit that allows multiple connections?

It's not Anker that stands in the way of doing what you want. The international Bluetooth standard will not permit simultaneous multi-device use of a signal. Stay tuned, that is scheduled to change soon as the Bluetooth standards committee moves forward with new standards in the future. At that time I'm sure Anker will be one of the companies who will offer multi-user use of Bluetooth products.

Used two units, one to TX one to RX

It´s possible to paring two units, one for receiving the signal from any player (TX) and one for connect with ther amplifier (RX), of course in the same room. This connection used the 3.5 mm connector

Sure. I've done it. The range was less than I expected but then it was a larger than average room. My #1 wish is that Anker offered this in a plug-in module like their RX only unit. No one seems to have anything like that.

How do I connect to my TV?

Hi there!

I have a pair of wireless earphones which I want to connect to my television to watch TV while I am lying down on my bed. Does this transmitter help me in this case in anyway?

There are generally 2 popular types of wireless headphones that do what you want to do, each using very different technologies. The older but still popular style using a technology similar to the old cordless home telephones. It uses a dedicated transmitter that comes with the headphones to "broadcast" the sound to the headphones, in other words they are tuned to be used together. This Anker adapter will not help you for that type of headphone. The other commonly used technology is Bluetooth. If your headphones are Bluetooth they can receive an audio signal from a wide range of devices that have a built-in Bluetooth "send" capability. Most Smartphones and tablets have that capability. You can adapt most audio playback devices such as MP3 players, home stereo, TV, radios, etc. that have an earphone jack to "send" the audio signal to Bluetooth headphones and yes, this Anker adapter does that (I own one, it works great for that purpose). Please be aware that Bluetooth has a limited range, it is most useful when the playback device and your headphones are in the same room, which of course would be the case with your TV and your bed. Hope this helps!

Side note. The product is in tx mode, I hold the power button for 5-7 seconds so the blue light flashes continuously but it does not pair. I've successfully connected my Bluetooth hesdphones but am having trouble with connecting my iPhone 6 to the transmitter

A little trick I learned with mine is that you have to have the power OFF before switching between TX and RX modes and although it will work at a greater distance you need to be no more than 3' away while pairing. After that, hold the button on the unit until the blue light flashes regularly which can take about 10 seconds. THEN push the scan button on your phone and after another 10 seconds or so look for Anker MB220. You will know you are paired with the Anker's light flashes slowly every few seconds. Of course make sure your Bose volume control is turned up and they are set to the AUX input if they have one.

Thank you for your answer. I am still having problems connecting, after I get the anker ready to connect I turn my Bluetooth on and it begins searching for devices but does not find anker mb220. There is no scan option for the iPhone 6 so I just turn the Bluetooth on and wait for it to find devices. This normally works fine.

Hmm. Please forgive me if this sounds to "simple" but I hope you are aware that this device is rechargeable and needs to be fully charged before using. There is a red indicator light that needs to be OFF to show that it is charged up. Honestly I wish Anker had provided for using an external AC power source for this like they do for their RX only unit.

its charged, and the light flashes blue regularly after I turn it on and hold the button to connect. As I said before I've gotten the anker to work with a Bluetooth headset. The only problem I'm facing is that my iPhone for some reason doesn't find the anker when I turn its Bluetooth on

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

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.

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

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.

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.
