Last year I purchased the Avantree Priva II along with the Avantree Audition Pro headphones, both are aptX low latency. They worked so well together that my wife wanted the same setup for 'her' TV. So now I own two of each :). There is no audio lag, and the audio quality is very good. The Audition Pro headphones are light weight and very comfortable.
I recently got the new Priva III. I bought it because I didn't need a battery as it's always connected to my TV. Plus, I liked the idea of an on/off switch. The on/off switch makes it convenient to switch the headphone audio source from Priva III/TV to iPhone and vice versa. Yes, I could do the same with the Priva II by simply unplugging the power source. But, the Priva III's switch just makes it easier.
As much as I like my Priva II, the Priva III is even better. Here is a summary:
- Priva III has more volume than Priva II when connected with my Audition Pro headphones (i.e. it can go even louder than Priva II).
- Priva III has much better bluetooth range than Priva II. I never lose connection no matter where I am in my house upstairs or downstairs.
- Both Priva III and Priva II have very good audio quality. No lag with either as long as you're using with aptX low latency headphones (like the Audition Pro headphone).
- Priva III on/off switch makes it easy to change to a different audio source while still keeping my Audition Pro headphones turned on (i.e. from Priva III/TV to iPhone).
- Priva III weighs less since no battery. Priva II has battery.
- Priva III black, Priva II white. For me, black looks better behind my TV.
I obtained both MEE and Priva II for comparison (paid full price, no discount or free sampling). They are very similar products, and compare as below:
-both are compact, can be battery operate for hours, similar price range, similar transmission range (I'll describe later) and connect up to 2 Bluetooth devices
What's up with Priva II?
-smaller, slight cheaper
-it remembers your connected Bluetooth devices, so no need to re-pairing each time
-magnet base can somehow stick onto nearby electronics for ease of positioning
-better sound quality (tested with movies, musical, and bass test songs from YouTube and on two different Bluetooth headphone) that I can discern
-some paint chipped off on the multifunction button as arrived
-cheaper looking package
-no Toslink/optical connection
What's up with MEE?
-good package, the device is black and looks great with my TV set
-Toslink capability, which my relatively old smart TV has only. I had to connect either through my Yamaha receiver or computer directly, which can be cumbersome.
-less sound quality (only after when I compare with Priva II in order to tell the difference)
-need to pair every time when turn on (this takes a few seconds, but gets very annoying and inconvenient)
What about range of transmission?
I tested it specifically because my first pairs of tiny MPOW Bluetooth headphone keeps dropping when connected in dual mode. When connected to a single device, there is really no major difference between the two pieces. I was able to get around 20 feet, but doesn't penetrate brick wall. When connected to 2 Bluetooth devices, I got signal drops even just sitting in front of the TV on my couch, which is about 6-7 feet away. Then I switch to another pair of headphone from Avantree (MPOW gives 25 feet in no obstacle, Avantree Audition about 40 feet). This time it's better, single pair I can now get up to 20 feet and about 10-12 feet on dual. This seems to be the issue with both in dual mode and the distance is approximately halved. Priva II probably gives an extra foot or two after multiple testing and walking in my apartment. I guess headphone's baseline Bluetooth range determines how far you can go. Both of my headphone sets are Aptx capable and I couldn't tell any latency in both single and dual mode on both devices.
Bluetooth wireless option is great for home theater with added benefit to turn your phone into wireless as well, which I enjoy a lot during my commute to work. The pitfall is the range cut off as compare with conventional RF device.
MEE or Priva II? They are comparable and just different style in appearance. MEE is more manly and solid looking while Priva is more tech-looking. Sound quality is definitely better on Priva II and the design with magnet base is unique.
I ended up choosing Priva II for the above reasons and one star off for no Toslink and the chipped paint on the multifunction (maybe the packaging too, but hey, it's 10 bucks cheaper). Recommend for anyone who wants to go wireless and doesn't care about Toslink!
Unfortunately, when I set the system up I only connect using the SBC codec which has longer lag and is inferior for my needs. Spoke with Apple support about beats and they verified my headphones decode apt-x
I sent two messages to avantree support about this and let me tell you was I disappointed in their response, which was two words:" No Comment." I have a screenshot of the email to prove it if your interested. I am so disappointed by the lack of willingness to assist me with their product. It's just sad.
If within 20 feet of the unit it works great. However, go further away and it disconnects and when reconnecting I have to pair the two items again. And this is a headset that I also use with my smart phone and tablet and have never had this same problem of having to constantly pair, so I have to assume it is this device and not the headphones.
It is being returned.
I wills say, when it does work it sounds great. I may have received a bad one, but I will go to another brand prior to trying out a second one.
