These things are pretty good, they allow you to make any device with a 3.5mm jack into a Bluetooth eligible device, great for making speakers Bluetooth worthy.
Get in quick as I'm unsure on the code limit.
Was just looking for something like this. Thanks. Got one!!!
And don't forget to un-check "priority line shipping" :-). TY OP, Kris Kringle is on a cheap run this year.
$1.25 is not a very acceptable gift. I hope you don't expect much in return!
If it is something actually useful like this, then I'd far prefer it to a $50 piece of trendy trash. "Kris kringles" to me are small ancillary items such as key-rings, torches, usb sticks ect that are a step up from a candy-cane stuck on a card. I'm always more grateful for someone who has thought of what is needed for the person and occasion, and how much use the recipient will get from the gift rather someone who has considered how they will look when people assess how much they have spent.
The Christmas present I got the most use from in the last 10 years was a $30 folding outdoor chair which is still doing stalwart service…
Bought one last time, there's a slight hiss but its great for the price
does the battery still lasts after a while ?
Yeah battery life is still good after 6mo of use
The battery isnt the greatest as is. Its easy to leave it on when you leave the car and then it stays on for a little while before it turns off. Mind you with the size of it i wouldnt be expecting amazing battery life
Looks like there is a limit to 1 only at this price. If you add an extra the price jumps.
As is with nearly every single one of these deals.
Why oh why do I keep buying things only because they are cheap if I have no use for them whatsoever?
Its the Ozbargain way.
These are rubbish. Bought one and wouldn't even pair with any one of my phones or spares. (Tried 3).
Spend a few bucks more and get a reasonable BT receiver in the $10-$20 range.
Which phone did you try, the iPhone 7 Plus ?
Yes, this device is the receiver, the phone is the sender. It can't work the other way.
If you bothered to click the image link that I sent, you'd get the hint. Car aux connector is female, home sound systems are also female.
Got a headphone with a male connector? Then get a female to female adapter.
For some reason, I've got this image of Lostn in sex ed class standing up screaming at the teacher, "No, that's not how you do it!"
These have terrible sound quality. There's a noticeable hiss when listening to audio from this.
Can you please recommend a good one?
That's what I got to replace the on in this deal. 100x better.
Decent sound quality and no pairing issues at all.
Are you sure it's for the same purpose? The 3.5mm jack on this is female. The one posted here is male.
This thing is going to dangle if it requires cables to connect. Not convenient.
The product you linked does the reverse purpose to this product.
Yours lets you use wired (non-BT) headphones with a BT audio player.
This lets you use BT headphones with a non BT audio player.
From your above post calling it rubbush, I can tell you're misunderstanding the purpose of this gadget.
@lostn: Its advertising the usefulness of its microphone seems a bit pointless then…
To quote: "TS - BT35A08 Bluetooth 3.0 Car Audio Music Receiver"
The male plug is for plugging in the aux socket of the media player.
That's exactly what I'm saying the purpose of it is.
Don't get hung up on whether it's called a receiver or a sender. As I said, that depends on the perspective. One of them is always sending and the other is receiving.
You can call it whatever you want, but it's not a useful term without a qualifier.
Maz78 thinks it's meant to pair via BT with your phone when it's not. It's meant to pair with the playback device (your BT headphones). The item he linked has female 3.5mm. This thing has male 3.5mm, so obviously the two devices have the opposite purpose.
@lostn: The connector is for it to connect media from a bluetooth enabled player to a non BT device such as car audio, amplifiers, speakers with an auxillary input port. It is receiving the Bluetooth audio and out[putting analogue, and can also operate as a hands-free device.
"It connects to the AUX port in your car to enable your car sound system to stream audio from [editing mine] smartphones wirelessly. It connects to your smartphone automatically once it is turned on. With a full charge, it provides up to 8 hours of playing time. In addition, the sleep mode saves the power while it is not within the range. Besides, this Bluetooth receiver is also designed to work with home stereos, speakers, headphones, etc. by 3.5mm stereo inlet socket. It is compatible with all iPhones, all iPads, Android devices, and other smartphones that are A2DP Bluetooth profile."
Give up mate.
I don't think he'll ever get it.
I have a PC with no Bluetooth. Would like to stream music to a Bluetooth speakers.
I think this product is the wrong way round?
@congngo: Do not buy this product for that purpose. lostn is exactly wrong
@Yummy: Yep, and when we read the offer page to the end and click on a video offered in the reviews, we see that it has a female 3.5 mm socket and comes with a double ended male plug, hence kamoi's clarification to my post for aboabo's benefit a few lines below.
How do these get power?
by rechargeable battery and you charge it by micro USB cable
I ordered this last time and didn't worker me for
May work for some
Thanks. Didn't need it so I bought one.
Bought. Wanted something like this for a long time. Hope it works well and sounds good. But for this price, I'm not getting my hopes up.
Got one, thanks OP :)
It was in my cart before this. Was looking to buy one when someone makes a deal for this. Bought one now.. let's see how it works!
Now a days my PayPal is full of gearbest.. rosegal..
Can it be put on the transmitting end and pair it with a Bluetooth headphones ?
I plug this into the mic input on my home stereo, right?
Then I send a BT audio signal from my phone to hear it amplified on my stereo?
Your mic input won't give to good a result - you can get a conversion cable pretty cheaply that will split it into left and right "RCA" plugs and use one of your other inputs.
Wouldn't this be better?
@kamoi: It's already got a male outlet, the one aboabo found replaces his microphone socket, which will have a far higher impedance than an auxiliary one.
Sorry, maybe it's not as obvious as I thought.
Remove the double ended plug from the bluetooth device.
Plug the cable I linked to above into the bluetooth device.
Seems silly to me to stack adapters. Would also look a bit nicer when it's not all sticking out so far.
@kamoi: I get the impression it's a captive cable. If not, yours would be technically better but I think the increase in noise will be pretty insignificant at the fidelity level I reckon this will perform at;-)
EDIT Looking at the reviews, it looks like you are right, as one user reports he is using it to turn his earphones into bluetooth ones without an intervening receiver. I'd still use the converter plug for the same reason I like using short HDMI extenders, so the wear when plugging and unplugging is on the cable, not on the amp/TV/device.
Managed to save 2 cents more. PayPal charged me AU$1.23.
Same here was charged $1.23
Thanks so much.
My crazy wife wanted me to chuck out my $2000 shelf system because it was not capable of wireless play.
This saved it from destruction.
Now to find a wife remote control with off button.
Crazy sounds like an understatement :o
Haha.. Careful man, the way this nation is going you could be served some type of infraction notice citing misogyny before long. ;)
You REALLY don't want to pair this with a 2k shelf system, these are… just barely playable in terms of quality. I would have their usage restricted to listening to AM radio.
Tells me coupon is expired, and comes to $6.44 …
Are you signed in? I have to sign in for coupon to work. Every now and then I get an error still and haven't found a workaround. Reps couldn't figure out a solution either.
Coupon has actually expired this time.
Yeah was signed in. IMO, this probably isn't worth the $6.44. The battery powered ability is more of a pain IMO. I bought this one a while back (http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/3-5mm-Wireless-Bluetooth-USB-Musi...) for around $2.50. It's built in USB is handy
So it’s good for the car’s auxiliary jack?
What the heck, it's already expired?
Yep, these deals tend to end very quickly once they hit any of the big deal sites unfortunately.
I'm surprised it lasted 2k clicks.
How did you get this code? Did the store shared it with you?
I just found it on a Gearbest coupon Facebook group :)
Got one of these off ebay a while ago, crap quality audio, hissing noise. Tried in car and on my logitech z623 same thing. Do not recommend.
Not working for me. Say's expired.
Didn't even last 12 hours….is this kind of stuff even post-worthy? if so, there's a lot of bargains to post on the sale shelf at my local coles…
New code working for same price '11NOV229' ;)
Saw that and got the other post stickied :) But sold out so quickly..
Ha! yeah i didn't realise there was 2 posts going…picked the wrong one as it was saying expired… Good work on the power strip too…going to purchase one now ;)
Yeah there’s been 2 code updates today for it haha.
All good, thought people would like it :)
did anyone else get refunded for this? no email notification received from them
Received this in the post today.
What's your opinion on it?
This is OzBargain. Buying a bargain doesn’t mean I’ll use it!
Seriously, I’ll try it this weekend in my car and report back.
This Bluetooth receiver is so good better quality than I expected can't even tell the difference between this and aux. though it hisses after 20 seconds of nothing playing but that's no problem just have something playing!
Awesome to hear! Was a bit unsure whether the quality would be up there but glad that they're decent :)
Just received mine but it didn't come with instructions. Could someone please tell me which radio station it uses? Thanks.
Your confusing it with an FM transmitter. This puts out an ordinary audio signal which you feed into the auxiliary socket of whatever amplifier you wish to use to play back the sounds. Most modern car receivers have a socket that looks like an earphone socket, marked "aux". You plug it into that.
Thanks terrys, that makes sense.
any new code ? :(
Received mine the other day, sound quality is terrible, run time no where near the quoted 8 hours, but hey a buck 25, what else to expect. Thanks OP.
Mine came in. I haven't tried it in the car yet, but when used as an input for my Sennheiser 404s [My main intent] or an input to my sony amp it works well, with no hiss and good clarity. I'll try it in the car later this arvo to test whether it could be affected by the RF noise in the car. I am using a patch cable/direct earphone plug so maybe the noise could have something to do with the connector it comes with?
Pretty sure these are mono-only both channels, despite packaging stating A2DP profile support. Both units I received have reasonable clarity but there is no separation for music (which just doesn't sound quite right).
