It almost seems like Creative Labs doesn't want to sell this bluetooth/usb audio adapter. After spending time looking at the product description on their website and looking for reviews from other people who have bought this, I nearly passed this by. I don't own one of the Creative headsets that this adapter was "exclusively" designed for, and I run Linux - which, according to the website, will not work.
I wanted this adapter for two purposes:
1) To use with my Linux laptop since the built in bluetooth has HORRIBLE range
2) So that I can use my Photive BTH3 headset with my Sony PS4, and be able to voice chat
For me, it fulfills both 1 and 2. I am using a non-Creative headset (works great!) and Linux kernel 3.11.10 (again, works great!). I really don't know why this product seems so restrictive in the description when it seems to do more than it says it does.
With that said, I am happy with my purchase, but it does seem a little expensive for what it is. I suspect the price has to do with the fact that no one else seems to make something like this, at least that I could find.
Ever since one of the newer Sony Playstation 4 updates, this adapter no longer works. It still works fine on my laptop and PC, but Sony either accidentally, or intentionally, broke this adapter on the PS4. This adapter now shows up as a keyboard instead of an audio device, and the PS4 completely locks up shortly after it is plugged in. Again, there is nothing wrong with this device, only broken support due to poor software updates from Sony.
