Clear good sound quality.
Joel Schopp
Also, the battery life is not great, you have to make sure you charge it before every use, only adding to the frustration of the charger.

The JayBird works great for transmitting music to headphones or bluetooth wireless speakers (Jambox is awesome!).

The JayBird works great for transmitting music to headphones or bluetooth wireless speakers (Jambox is awesome!). However, there is a fraction of a second time delay so JayBird does not work for TV or video; sounds like a bad echo unless you mute all other speakers, and lips are slightly ahead of voices.
If anyone has found a bluetooth adaptor that works on TV, give us a shout, please. stevesac.2 gmail

This is basically all I could ask for in a "universal" bluetooth adapter - small and flat, light, long battery life, good transmit range, reasonably intuitive controls and support for apt-x. There's just one thing to be cautious of: if you use it while the USB power adapter is plugged in you may get some nasty-sounding noise and static over your music (it's obvious if you pause and just crank up the volume). I got this static when plugging the USB end into any of my computer's USB ports but it went away when I used one of those universal AC/DC adapters with interchangeable connectors (one of them a female USB) plugged into the wall. I guess some power sources are "dirty" and the electrical noise leaks into the transmission.

This was my third try to find a bluetooth adapter that would work with Motorola S10-HD Bluetooth Stereo Headphones[Retail Packaging]...I use them @ the gym and on the tv or stereo when my wife is sleeping ...I tried several other units from here with mixed luck. Some had good range but no battery life, some had the opposite.

I started with less expensive $20 units, then moved into the $30 ones...then I ended up here. @ $50 this is not a cheap investment. But as it turns out in this category you get what you pay for. I am averaging 6-8hrs of run time when paired with Moto S9's or S10's, the (Motos dies about the same time...) Gym reception and house reception are about the same around 20-25ft. I can walk to the fridge and grab a drink and back to the living room without dropping the signal. I have found it recharges in about 2-4 hours depending upon how long I used it...

I would spend the $50 again...worth the price for the run time and signal quality...

The MAJOR flaw with the Jaybird blue-tooth adapter is that it does not have an automatic power-off function. I primarily use my Jaybird when I'm in bed listening to music to help me fall asleep. Since the Jaybird does not have an auto off feature that will power it down when there is no music playing after a period of time,this means it will be dead in the morning. And if you use it in your car and forget to turn it off, or any other scenario where you leave it on even when no music is playing it just runs down the battery. It also seems to discharge rather quickly even when the unit is turned off. Another problem I have with the Jaybird is the charging cord is not a standard mini or micro usb, so if you're traveling that's just one more cord you're going to have to pack.
So in conclusion, the sound quality is good but I would buy a different adapter if I had to do it all over again due to the power and charging issues.

This will work with any bluetooth device that has a mini plug headphone output. The other unit they make will only work with the iPad and iPod Touch models. I did notice a very dramatic sound improvement. I use it with all of my iPods, my iPad, and my iMac through the headphone output on my Bose desk speaker system. There can be skipping when it is in a pocket on your person. This is because the body can block the signal at times. I discovered that if I just let the BAU unit dangle outside my pocket, the skipping will disappear. I purchased mine through Amazon from J&R Music for 20 per cent less than is mentioned above in the product description.

I tried three other bluetooth transmitters and of the four this one was the best in all categories.
* Best range. Other transmitters wouldn't cover adjacent rooms, and if you covered the headphones with your hand the signal would break up. With this one I can still hear clearly in nearby rooms and covering my headphones with my hand has no effect.
* Works when plugged in to power source or on battery
* Lower latency than others. When viewing video the latency makes it so the sound and the moving lips almost, but not quite match. With others the lips and sound look like a poor language dub. I can view video without it bugging me too much, and with some video players (ie the free VLC player for computers) you can adjust the video/audio offset to compensate for the latency.
* Clear good sound quality.

Bought it for my new Kindle Fire. I can now watch movies on my terrace in high quality sound with the Kindle connected to my Jaybone Jambox. Make sure you do not misplace the computer charger for the Jaybird as it is specific.. All in all it does what it says it does; adds bluetooth to any player that has a earplug.

As I mentioned in my review of the Miccus Bluebridge, I was heavily biased towards a transmitter that plugs in directly to my iPod with the use of a wire. Wires break. They are also awkward if you clipping your iPod on while you work out. But I had lots of problems with the Miccus freezing up and many times not pairing. So I did a ton more research and simply bit the bullet...getting the Jaybird based on the recurring reliability theme I saw across many reviews. I got it yesterday and so far, it's working on. The fact that it's tiny and light as feather (similar to the dimensions of the most recent iPod Nano), the tiny cable becomes less of a concern.

Pairing was quick and easy. It pair several consecutive times with no hiccups, unlike the Miccus.

Now--here's the real kicker that I'm really excited about. There is a hardly any delay and the sound quality is as crystal clear as when I plug in through the jack. In fact, bass, mid-ranage, and highs are all there with no distortion. In a way, I'm glad I got the Miccus because there was a huge delay between changing the volume on the scroll wheel and my Logitech Boombox. With the Jaybird the delay is far less noticeable.

All in all, I'm joining the chorus of Jaybird fans out there. It's a solid purchase.
