    I have a belkin one, would +1 this. Gd deal

    •  

      Yeah they're a good little bit of kit. I think price-wise, it is more efficient to get one of the bluetooth-to-ipod adaptors (plug into the old-style ipod/iphone cables) - they go for about $9 on ebay

      But the belkin is good with the optical audio, NFC, etc

      …and the ebay one is always blinking ALL THE TIME. Makes my house look like a disco at night

  •  

    Great deal! thanks

  •  

    Awesome. I bought one last month for $37. Will buy a couple more at this price. Works well and sounds good.

    These are great, used one in my Car for the Auxiliary port. Now I have Bluetooth in an old vehicle with something that is cheap, reliable and subtle. Runs off 5V so any USB charger will power it.

      My car is too old for an aux port…

      •  

        Does it have cassette?

        •  

          Yeah it does.

        •  

          @aero8: Have you tried a cassette to Aux adapter? Work's wonders for me!

          @Woodyg22:

          Have you tried getting a new stereo? Works wonders for almost everyone in the world.

        •  

          @Woodyg22: Been using a FM transmitter, does an okay job.

        •  

          They really depend on the antenna location in your car, if its not close to the source then they suck.

          @llama: $10-20 for an adapter vs replacing the whole head unit of an old non-standard sized radio, sounds great!

          @Woodyg22:

          $10-20 for an adapter vs replacing the whole head unit of an old non-standard sized radio.

          Yet totally useless for a stereo that is so old that it doesn't even have AUX in. So that's a stereo that cannot be used with CDs, nor USBs either.

          … so the only choice is to pay $30 for this Bluetooth adaptor PLUS $10-20 for some horrid Cassette adaptor or a FM Transmitter, which is an awful solution overall. Have you actually listened to how bad such a botch job sounds?

          If the head unit takes CDs or USB, then put the msic through those, not some poxy Cassette or FM thingy.

          sounds great!

          Nah, it'll sound like shit. With such a setup, there's no point wasting $30 on this Bluetooth adaptor… might as well just plug the cassette adaptor straight into the portable device.

        •  

          @llama: I haven't bought a CD in years and managing music on a USB is just ridiculous, especially compared with music streaming services (Google Play Music).

          Bluetooth adapter wasn't actually going to be for the car and the cassette adapter actually sounds quite decent and isn't really the weakest link in the system.

          Unit only does radio and cassette, think year 2000.

          Sounds great was an unfortunate choice of words and was with regard to the idea of replacing everything :)

          Considering all that, I prefer to cycle where I can!

      •  

        Same case as me, so I got one of those FM transmitter things instead, takes in audio from Bluetooth or an aux cable and the car receives it on a FM frequency.

      Came to ask the Voltage, cheers :D

    •  

      Damn it! I just bought a Bluetooth receiver that plugs into the cd changer to get Bluetooth audio. Could have easily done this for 5x cheaper.

    •  

      Can I ask what the purpose is? If you already have an auxiliary port, this will just mitigate plugging the cable directly to the phone that's about the only benefit right?

      Thanks

      • +3 votes

        Until you've tried it you won't realise how convenient this part is - and less clutter!

        •  

          I'm interested. So you connect this to the aux input in your car and then pair your phone to this? Won't there still be clutter with the aux cable running from your aux port in this device?

        •  

          @Slave1:

          For car I agree, unless you hide away the device and do some cable routing it may not save much. However I installed a Pioneer Double Din bluetooth head unit which I got in an ozbargain sale for $150 and I'm super happy with.

          For home though, it's great you can be sitting on the couch and adjusting songs, without an ugly cord across the room or having to keep getting up to change the song.

        •  

          @placard: Thanks for that. Will pass on this for now as was interested in using it in the car. I use a chromecast at home connected to my home theatre set up and google music so don't need one inside.

    •  

      Hi Haxxa,

      Care to share what USB cable did you get to power your setup?

  •  

    How does this connect to an AV receiver? What input?

    •  

      RCA or 3.5mm inputs
      RCA is the red and white inputs - you probably have a set on the front of your av receiver, or use a spare set on the back.

    Can this be used to listen to TV audio via bluetooth headphones ? Is it small enough to be concealed / mounted on back of TV ?

    • +2 votes

      From my understanding the transmitter (source) would be natively bluetooth based (ie laptop, tablet, phone) and this device takes that bluetooth signal and converts it to analogue audio. If I'm understanding your requirements you're actually looking for something that works in reverse, where you convert your tv's headphone audio socket to bluetooth.

      •  

        Does Logitech make a reliable and neat version of what belbo wants (an TV audio input, bluetooth output, with pairing, for bluetooth headphones), powered by either usb or power adapter.

    • +1 vote

      No, it's a receiver. It doesn't send audio.

    • +1 vote

      No it doesn't take audio input and convert to Bluetooth output signal. (It works the other way round)

    •  

      Thanks for the info.

  •  

    Go to check out and computer says no :(

    'We do not have Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter in stock, please select a store to PickUp from or remove the item from your cart.'

    •  

      Yeah in store only now m8, you can check an estimate of which store have stock but I would still ring before going in store to buy :)

  •  

    Is this the same thing as a USB Bluetooth dongle?
    What are the pros and cons for getting this over a $5 cheapie on ebay?

      NO

      What are the pros and cons for getting this over a $5 cheapie on ebay

      Pro: This is a Bluetooth Audio adaptor.

      Con: This is not a USB Bluetooth dongle.

  •  

    I bought this thing few months ago, but then I found out it must use an AC adapter whereas my original purpose is to connect this thing with my mini speaker by a power bank

    Finally i bought a Bose bluetooth adapter which support micro usb power-in, waste my $30

    •  

      From what I could find it looks like it takes 5V @ 1000mAh, you should be able to cut off the DC adapter end from the adapter and solder on a USB plug in place of the wall adapter.

      •  

        yes I know this is a workable way, just I don't know how to make it

          No, it doesn't.

          Gawd knows why you think you'd need to "make it". The device uses a standard coaxial power connector.

          PHOTO: http://www.kenrockwell.com/audio/logitech/bluetooth-adapter/...

          So simply buy a suitable USB to Coaxial cable if you wish to connect that way.

          EXAMPLE: 5.5mm type would be: http://v.gd/8DEitW

        •  

          @llama

          PLEASE NOTE: I have NO IDEA if it uses a 5.5mm power jack or not.

          My comment is about the concept of using a cable, and definitely not a suggestion for which cable to purchase.

  •  

    I've had this one for a while now and would recommend it.
    The only limitation is that it can only remember up to two devices at once, so any new devices connecting will push out the oldest remembered device.

  •  

    Apparently this does not support the "APTx" standard, for higher quality audio. Can anyone comment on the audio quality of this? Is the difference noticeable? I am interested, but am wondering whether to spend $50 on the APTx compatible ones from eBay (but who knows what quality the DA converters on those things is…)

    •  

      Sound quality is pretty good to me. Can't tell the difference between wired and Bluetooth connection. Definitely no hisses or bad connection. I'm happy with it.

      •  

        I have this and and Audioengine B1 ($250 unit). In terms of quality, there is a noticable difference. But there is no way you'd notice unless you were playing well mastered music, with a room properly setup and a decent audio setup. Thebiggest difference is actually that the expensive units have an onboard digital analogue converter which produces a better sound (not sure how to describe it).

        I use this on my desktop speakers for when I want to play music on my laptop/phone and the expensive unit on my good audio setup.

  •  

    Does it have a code on it or can anyone just click onto it? could the neighbours keep clicking on it? :D

  •  

    Can someone confirm how you power this on in your car?

      If you read the comments, you would notice another member suggested using one of these to power it via a car USB charger.

          You would know if you read the comments.

          Your question is asking how to power it in a car, my reply pointed towards another member's suggestion.

        •  

          @tranqme:

          DERRR - I am "the other member"

        •  

          @llama: Apologies, I thought you were the other person, guess I need to follow my own advice!

        •  

          @tranqme: Has anyone found out which cable is needed to power this via usb?

        •  

          @slosh:

          Anybody who has already purchased one can easily check what's needed. Or just look at one in the store and measure the plug.

          Note 1: It's too hard to measure the socket in the device.

          Note 2: If it's a 5.5mm coaxial plug, the inside pin could be be either 2.1mm or 2.5mm diameter (they aren't usually interchangeable).

          Note 3: The 5.5mm is most usually used for 12V. Many 5 Volt devices often use 3.5mm diameter, which is the same size as the VERY OLD Nokia phones used to use.

          In fact, if it's smaller than 5.5mm plug, then an old mobile phone charger might be an all-in-one solution. I think some Nokias are 7V as well, so beware of the voltages they use LOL!

          In any case, just buy the Bluetooth device anyway, then after you have it in your hand you can source a suitable USB power lead for it. The lead won't be anything special nor difficult to obtain off ebay.

    Just bought one for $26.60 from Officeworks next door. Great product, good sound and absolutely no noise. I bought it to connect my phone to a sound system. Can not hear any differernce between wired and BT connection.
    Thanks TRENT86!

    •  

      Stupid question, but essentially it captures the bluetooth audio from your phone and converts it into AUX so you can plug it into speakers?

    •  

      Officeworks Braddon (ACT) refused to price match. Claimed that because EB Games says "Available for purchase in store only" that means it is a clearance item… and Officeworks don't match clearance prices.

      •  

        The bloke I had did it instantly. You must have a crappy store :P

      •  

        Officeworks in Belco had two in stock but couldn't find them. EB in Belco had none in stock and said they had been recalled. I ended up buying one for $32 from the EB website with express post.

  •  

    Apparently they were asked to send them all back since they wernt selling so you may have trouble finding them in stock.

  •  

    I'm assuming it's just BT 2.1
    Could probably get a similar device but with BT 4.1 from dx, aliexpress and the like.
    edit
    BT 3.0

    Any recommendations for a Bluetooth transmitter? I need to be able to send the Bluetooth signal from my TV to headphones.

  •  

    Just picked up 2 sets at QV store in Melbourne. They have about 4 left on the shelf.

  •  

    Would this work with Spotify and an AV receiver?

    My WDTV Live has the Spotify plugin but you need to turn on the television to select your music. My setup runs through a Marantz AV receiver. I just want to be able to connect this to the AV receiver, and then be able to use the ipad or phone app to browse music and play without having to turn on the tv.

    •  

      Yep, I have a Marantz receiver as well. I stream Spotify et al from my Android phone.

      •  

        If this requires my phone to continuously stream the music to the logitech, then it's not really for me.

        I want something that will let my phone / ipad make the handshake, but then hand the streaming over to the network (ie. not rely on having the data go through the phone / ipad continuously).

        • +1 vote

          Chromecast (Audio)? Pretty sure it has proper spotify support

          Edit: just saw your reply to the comment below, that's what you need!

  •  

    Thanks Picked up 2 from Werribee OW, 1 left.

  •  

    can this be used in a car to connect to Aux-in? which adapter to be used to charge in car?

  •  

    Thanks OP, just got one at OW Carlton price beat no problem from Steve who'd seen on OB site. Still had about 5.

  •  

    Cheers, got one - 6 left at oxley OW

      This looks like it could be more what I'm after - lets the network handle the streaming once your tablet makes the connection / song selection.

      If this doesn't do it, then I'm probably onto Sonos - will get one of those things that turns your home theater setup into a Sonos rig.

    •  

      Damn your comment was about 5 minutes too late :(

  •  

    Just picked up 2 from Chirnside Park OW, 4 left.

  •  

    none left in Brisbane city adelaide st store :(

  •  

    I recall grabbing these around $25 from DSE. Got three.

  •  

    What do these normally go for?
