Customer Reviews

Old Neb
  • One or the Other, not both
  • It's a transmitter OR a receiver, not both at the same time. Can't be used for, for instance, xbox one chat adaptor.Other than that, it was well built and Anker was great with their support and return policy.

  • Sounds great, easy to use, but a slight delay when watching video that drives me nuts
  • On the plus side, the sound is very good, much better than the Sony infrared headphones I've been using for years. And it was very easy to setup.But for watching video ... there is a slight delay in the sound that just drives me nuts sometimes ... you see the character's lips move and the sound is just a fraction of a second too late. If I force myself to watch the characters' eyes it's not so bad. But I may go back to the infrared headphones or else look for another answer.Would be great for music, though!

Not my real name guy
  • Great Bluetooth Transmitter But Serious Design Flaw As Bluetooth Receiver
  • I've owned several small Bluetooth receivers that one can use with any pair of regular headphones/earphones and had major problems with each of them. The MEE Electric AirFi connected beautifully, had great sound and was very easy to use but its battery died after 14 months. A Sony MW600 had excellent (7-8hrs) battery life, but surprisingly mediocre sound, really bad and difficult to use controls, its spring clip to attach it to a shirt pocket, lanyard, etc... broke off, and while it started out being difficult to pair and connect to a variety of phones, laptops and tablets, about the time that the clip broke, it became almost non-functional with its lack of connectivity. Just as I was getting ready to buy a higher end Bluetooth headphones, rather than a receiver, I spotted this device and wouldn't you know it, it's dual receiver/transmitter functionality came in handy, as the internal Bluetooth connector on my Samsung Series 3 laptop (piece of junk - squirrely touchpad, extremely delicate and cheap power connector, mediocre display) died, so this unit lets me plug it in as a transmitter and I can now watch movies or listen to Pandora through my laptop and a cheap Arctic Bluetooth headset I picked up for about 15 bucks.PROS:- Functions both as a Bluetooth transmitter (one can plug it in, via a short headphone cord that comes included to the earphone jack of an audio device such as a laptop, a TV, a stereo, and then listen to that source via a pair of wireless Bluetooth headphones, whether stereo or a mono in-ear set one uses with one's cellphone) and as a wireless Bluetooth receiver, flipping a switch on the side, plugging a set of ordinary 4.5mm earphones or headphones into the device and listening from a Bluetooth source such as a cell phone, tablet, laptop, etc....- Good sound, both, transmitting and receiving - better sound as a receiver than my Sony MW600- Very easy connectivity. It's pretty much automatic used as a receiver with an iPhone 5S and a Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 tablet, and using it as a transmitter, it connects quickly and nearly automatically with my Arctic P253-BT Bluetooth stereo headset.- Adequate volume both as a receiver and as a transmitter, range is about 30 feet.- Quality construction, with an aluminum case- Simple, easy to use, with no goofy controls like on my Sony MW600.- Battery life appears to be in the 6 to 8 hour range, quite decent, and it charges through a widely-used micro-USB cable.CONS:- Difficult to use as a receiver because of the lack of any sort of clip or even an a loop or eyelet on the exterior of the case that one might attached to a shirt or run a lanyard/chain through to hang off one's neck. Basically, this leaves one either putting it in a pocket or it is non-portable and must be left on a desk or in one's lap while sitting down. Almost every other Bluetooth receiver on the market comes with a clip on the back with which one can attach the device to a shirt pocket or to a lanyard for wearing around instead of staying static at a desk. This is a big design flaw - it should have had at the minimum some sort of small loop like a digital camera has for a hand strap to which one could attach a lanyard or chain.- Price is about $10 higher than seemingly identical units with other brand names stamped on them that are available from Amazon. However, Anker has a good reputation for quality and service whereas I've never heard of the several other brands that apparently have commissioned this item's manufacturer to stamp their own brand name on it instead of Anker's.CONCLUSION:This device does a good job with both transmitting audio from my laptop to a pair of basic-sound quality Arctic Bluetooth headphones and as serving as a Bluetooth receiver that I can use with my much higher quality NuForce NE-600X Earphones - seeNuForce NE-600X Red High-efficiency In-ear Headphones(which were a ridiculously good deal when I bought them for $25, but now have been discounted down to $15 - that's so incredible of a value I'm buying a second pair to have one as a backup). I took a star off the rating because it's just a small, smooth aluminum box (about 2" x 1 1/4" x 3/8") with no way to attach it to anything when used as a Bluetooth receiver. Otherwise I recommend it pretty highly.

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.

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.
