Great for air travel
Reviewed in the United States on September 22, 2020
I have a few of these bluetooth transmitters that I use while traveling. I hate the dinky head phones that you get from airlines for inflight entertainment and prefer to use my own noise canceling headphones. The problem is inflight systems require you to plugin and all my devices are 100% bluetooth these days. Transmitters like this one are great because I can plug them into the inflight system via their mini-stereo plug and resume using my wireless devices. No more inflight noise from engines, a/c, or talkative passengers in seat next to you. No tangled wires to jump over as someone tries to shuffle over to the restroom. The only problem? I tend to forget them when I deplane. If you’ve found one of mine, enjoy.

Great Bluetooth transmitter
Reviewed in the United States on October 8, 2020
So far I’ve only used this to transmit Bluetooth from a sound mixer to wireless earbuds but this works great. Eliminated my lip sync problem from another transmitter I had previously used. Unit is well constructed, easy to use and comes in a really nice hard clamshell case. I have it permanently installed for my particular use but it seems like it would be great for portable use. Would definitely recommend.
Exceeded my expectations

I may have the latest iPhone but I have one of the oldest cars on the road, a 2004 but the car runs great so I’ve been using those tape deck phone transmitter things for years now. I never liked them – the tapes always made a lot of noise, they broke down easily and it was a little bit of a pain plugging and unplugging the things.
I was hesitant to try the FM transmitter as I live right outside of DC and thought the strong radio signals would interfere but surprisingly this device has been working GREAT and I wonder what took me so long to get one.
-never loses connection – not even where I live close to a major city
-incredibly convenient: automatically turns on and turns off. As soon as I power up the car, this device is on as well. This is nothing new for people with newer cars w/bluetooth built in but I was still plugging and unplugging my phone from a cassette adapter so this was a huge bonus for me. I’ve read reviews of other devices where you have to power up the device or turn it off – not so with this device.
-audio volume more than sufficient for audiobooks and music
-set up – piece of cake – I didn’t even read over the directions
-convenient to have 3 in 1 car charger
-Music quality decent but not great. So I may have a great audio system in my old Lexus but this device will not be able to capitalize on the depth of music quality that my system is capable of. The music is a bit more muted, less crisp, etc. but I am quite aware of this. Also for my car ride, I’m just looking to play some audiobooks and maybe a song or two.
-before you give up, you have to press REALLY hard to get the charger into your car port. At first I thought they had sent me a deficient charger or one for the European or other market as the charger was not fitting into the port. However if you press hard enough it goes right in.
A fabulous, intuitive, effective device at a wonderful low price point.

Interesting adapter with multiple functions.
Reviewed in the United States on September 21, 2020
I purchased this device because it works as both a bluetooth transmitter AND a bluetooth receiver.
I paired it with my iphone in receiver mode and plugged the included 3.5mm audio cable into my car’s AUX input. I was able to quickly and easily use my phone for audio in my car. This feature worked great. It sounded amazing and was very easy to setup.
My Nintendo Switch does not support bluetooth headphones by default, but I have MANY bluetooth headphones and would like to use them with my switch. I paired my Sony over head cans with this adapter in transmitter mode and was able to get wireless audio from my Switch. It was great.
This adapter has 2 functions and both work well. If you are looking for a device that does either of these, this is a good investment as it can do both. I would buy this again.
Quickly attach to seat belt for a clear phone conversation in an otherwise loud car.

So far it works great. I especially like that I can attach it to my seat belt on my chest so that when I am talking on the phone I come in clearly. This makes the product better than the others I have tried. It was missing the lanyard, but that was not a big issue for me as I decided to mount the magnet in a convenient location for the FM transmission, and to grab and attach to my seat belt for long conversations. It does work fine for talking at a distance of a few feet, but I have a loud sports car and sometimes people had a hard time understanding me. The FM transmitter works great and paring with my phone was a cake walk.
