About this item
- Make sure this fits by entering your model number.
- [Easy Set Up] Add Bluetooth audio capability (AUDIO devices ONLY, no data) with ease to any device that outputs audio through USB ports. No need to install any driver software; simply plug the DG80 into your audio source device, pair it up with your Bluetooth headphone or speaker, and you’d be good to go!
- [16-Bit Stereo Chat] When you pair the DG80 dongle up with an Avantree FastStream (Avantree ONLY) headphone, there will be NO “audio quality drop” issue when you chat while gaming. Feel free to chat on Discord while gaming, the Avantree wireless combo will guarantee 16-bit audio quality even during Bluetooth headset mode.
- [aptX Low Latency] The Avantree DG80 is Qualcomm aptX Low Latency certified; when you pair it up with a Bluetooth headphone or speaker that also supports aptX-LL, they’ll eliminate the notorious Bluetooth audio lag issue. The audio lag will be reduced to less than 40ms (220ms for standard Bluetooth) – virtually unnoticeable.
- [Wide Compatibility] The DG80 works with any audio device that can output audio signal through its USB ports – PS5, PS4, Switch (Dock), PC, Mac and more. However, we recommend using it with an Avantree FastStream Bluetooth headphone to avoid audio quality drop when you chat & game at the same time (headset mode).
- [Extended Range] The Avantree DG80 uses Bluetooth v5.0, ensuring stable & reliable connectivity up to 100 ft (30 m). Need to start making dinner or take a bathroom break? No problem, do what you need to do without worrying about the audio cutting out or breaking up. (Actual range may be affected by physical/wireless obstructions).

With this adapter, I can use HFP 1.6 without support from linux, because the adapter just shows up like a regular USB audio device. You can then switch between A2DP and HFP either within pulseaudio (e.g., the pavucontrol configuration tab) or by double-tapping the button on the adapter itself. So while the sound quality in HFP mode is noticeably worse than A2DP, it's still way, way better than what I was getting out of HSP mode with a normal bluetooth adapter.
That said, there are some negatives to keep in mind. Most importantly, with the bluez stack, whenever I turn my bluetooth headset on, pulseaudio knows the bluetooth device has connected and automatically switches over. With the Avantree adapter, the audio device is always there regardless of whether your bluetooth headset is connected, so you must manually switch back and forth in addition to turning on and off your headset or earbuds. Second, I find that the sound quality even in A2DP mode is slightly less good than what I get out of pulseaudio-modules-bt and also what I get from my phone, at least when comparing with Jabra elite 75t earbuts. This may be because my earbuds don't support APTX and the Avantree doesn't support AAC, so they are falling back to SBC. Another issue is that while the Avantree seems to have good range in HFP mode, in A2DP mode when listening to music the range seems to be exactly the same as with a normal bluetooth 5.0 adapter.
So all-in-all I'd highly recommend this for people who need to work around a very specific problem in their bluetooth audio stacks, but if your OS supports HFP 1.6 (or better yet 1.7), then you would be better off with a normal bluetooth dongle through which your OS can detect new bluetooth connections/disconnections and automatically switch audio sinks appropriately.

Though it is important to chwck that the Bluetooth dongle has the right level of Bluetooth you want (the higher the better) making sure it has the best codecs is more important. This dongle has AptX Low latency which is as good as it gets at this price point. AptX will not disappoint unless you are pairing high end headphones (£600.00 and above).
However something that is rarely commented on in reviews is that the quality of the sound circuitry and precisely how well it does AptX (for example) can vary a lot between the different seemingly equal products out there.
This dongle produces astonishingly good sound compared to other well known brands I have tried. It's very easy to use and it does not rely on Bluetooth software being installed on the computer. All the circuitry it needs is built into it. This means that I no longer sit there trying to make the damned things pair as I have had to do in the past. It simply picks up where it left off with the last paired headset. On windows it handles Zoom and 0ther video call apps very well indeed. Many Bluetooth dongles need to be manually switched from receive to transmit.
In short - this dongle is worth the extra cost over the transmission and the quality is better than that other well known quality brand often found sitting at the top of the review lists.
It was not. Maximum disappoint.
Reseach suggested I needed a sound card and a headset that could do aptX LL. So I got myself a sweet wireless headset (Sennheiser Momentum 3) and this little widget. Job done?
On pairing my shiny new headphones with this widget I was disappointed to get random crackling. Sometimes things were OK, but often they were not. Much experimentation and testing and gnashing of teeth ensued. Eventually, after trying all the USB ports on my PC, different cables to try and get the transmitter away from the PC (in case of interference, etc, whatever), I decided to contact Avantree tech support.
Their response was quick and efficient; You're using Momentum 3's, try this firmware update.
I followed the instructions and updated the firmware, and since then everything has been absolutely great. Sure, I might get a bit of crackle on an initial connection sometimes, but past that, when listening to music from the PC or listening to game audio/sound effects, everything is great and the latency is easily low enough for me to be very acceptable. I _think_ the new firmware may have increased the latency a little, but that could be my imagination. Either way, I'm totally happy with the widget, wireless gaming audio is achievable and great.
Overall: 5 starts.
Thickness: I don't care. 5.
Tech support: 5, because it was quick and efficient and did exactly what I needed.
Ease to install: 4, only because I had to go to tech support, otherwise 5.
The PS4 Pro recognised the DG80 immediately, and it was very easy to set up and pair with my JBL Tune 500 headphones. At the moment I am just rerouting the PS4 audio out, but the microphone settings are available. Can't comment on range as I sit just a few metres away, but quality is excellent and the DG80 is so small it can barely be seen. Very pleased.
Cleared everything, restarted from scratch - still the same. Took out my earbuds to record the sound on my phone's mic and then they seemed to work fine while sat on the desk. Have you spotted the issue here? If they only work on my desk then I might as well use a wired headset. Similarly, if they don't work in my head over a distance of greater than 3 feet (~1m) then I might as well just use speakers.
Simply put, they don't seem to work for their intended purpose (BT Headset/Earbuds on/in ears), yet the purpose they do seem to work for (BT Headset/Earbuds on a desk) would be better suited to literally any other means of producing sound (wired headset/earbuds or speakers).
They're definitely going back since I can get a better connection linking my phone to my PC over Wi-Fi and streaming BT audio over distance that way - it's not perfect but it's not the digital equivalent of paper cups tied to each end of a piece of string either...
The Bose headphones give a totally new audio experience with rich, deep bass and certainly enough volume. Excellent.
Of course, no mic in these headphones but I rarely use one. The audio is much better than the old PS4 platinum headphones I have and the noise cancelling is superb. Much more immersion in a game.
The dongle connected easily and so far after a couple of hours of playing has been reliable.
