The sound quality is poor and the unit is really not a quality product.
D. Booher
You have to have direct line of sight and not be more than 15 feet away or it cuts out.
Disappointed
I can play all the music through the stereo with great sound and wireless control.

This is a very cool gadget, that adds a Bluetooth interface to anything with either audio-in or audio-out jacks.

For example, receiver side of this device will connect your home/car/boat stereo to your Bluetooth-enabled MP3 player (like the one built into the RAZR V3xx and V3i mobile phones) allowing you to play your MP3s through the stereo's amp and speakers.

The transmitter side makes it possible to listen to the TV over Bluetooth headphones, just plug this thing in to the audio output jacks (found on most cable converters, DVD players, etc.)

In short, it makes your older audio devices available via Bluetooth, in just about every way you can imagine.

A couple of quick usage notes:

1.) To put it into pairing mode you must hold it's ID button for 7 seconds while it is powered *off*. You can hold it all day long after it's powered on, without changing a thing.

2.) The female audio jacks built into it are pretty stiff, you have to push it in until it clicks, and it takes a little more force than usual. (btw, its package does not RCA jack adapters, as is suggested in some of the product's literature, but those adapters are both cheap and readily available.)

3.) It's documentation states it can store 8 pairings with other devices, but does not indicate whether its transmitter is capable of connecting to more than one device at a time (which would be most functional, for sure.) At the moment I only have one device that supports A2DP (as a receiver, so until I get another, it's wait-and-see, I suppose... (I'll be pleasanty surprised if it does support more than one concurrent receiver, but what the heck: dare to dream.)

Because I hate the static-ridden 900MHz technology, I purchased an expensive set of cordless infrared headphones. Everything was okay until I purchased a 50" plasma television. Everytime a white or yellow screen appeared, I either lost the sound signal or it became annoyingly intermittent. Unfortunately, the plasma screen seriously interferes with infrared transmission.

My answer was to buy a quality pair of Bluetooth headphones with a stereo transmitter, and I could not be happier. The SONY DR-BT50 headphones and the SONY HWS-BTA2W transmitter/receiver combination are an excellent solution. I highly recommend these products.

This is a very good product. It's very small size (about 3" tall) allows it to be placed just about anywhere. Very easy set up, just push two buttons to make the pairing lights come on blinking, start the pairing of your other device and wait for the pairing lights to come on solid and your done. It was a snap and it shuts itself off automatically after five minutes of no pairing connection with another Bluetooth device. You can use it as a transmitter or receiver. Sony includes a short (about 3 ft.) mini stereo cable with it as well.

I was hoping to place the transmitter in front of my TV and listen thru bluetooth headphones or earphones. This works, up to 40 feet if you keep the antenna side of the headset facing the transmitter.
But, it ONLY WORKS/PAIRS WITH ONE RECEIVER AT A TIME. This information is finally found in small print in the middle of a page just before troubleshooting section of the manual. so my son and i can't watch TV together with separate headphones after my wife is in bed which was the reason for purchasing this device in the first place.

I just received this item today, along with a Jabra BT3030 Bluetooth Stereo Headset. I plan to use these for listening to our bedroom TV when my wife wants to sleep. I read the brief instructions and was able to pair the two devices on my first attempt, using the Sony adapter as a transmitter. Audio quality is more than adequate for watching TV, and even rivaled the quality I would expect from a wired connection. After pairing, I was able to walk out of the bedroom and about 12 feet down the hallway (for a total separation of about 20 feet) before the Bluetooth connection was dropped.

Overall, I am very pleased with this unit, but I'd like to point out a few potential limitations that might be deal-breakers for some people (fortunately, these were non-issues for me):

1. The device must be plugged into a wall outlet (or some other 120 VAC power source), as it does not provide a battery-powered option.

2. At any given time, the device can only operate as either a transmitter OR a receiver (NOT as a transceiver) -- which is selectable by a top-mounted switch.

3. The device will only pair with Bluetooth devices that use a device ID of "0000". This is not changeable.

Again, these limitations were not a problem for me at all. It's also worth mentioning that the device is very compact (the pictures are a little deceptive), and it comes with a cable (about 3 feet long) that terminates with a mini stereo plug at both ends.

I withheld a star's worth of rating due to the single Bluetooth profile supported by the device. It supports A2DP, which is necessary for stereo channel separation, but it does not support AVRCP, which would have enabled Bluetooth-based remote control (which is irrelevant to me, but might be a nuisance to others).
