In which I answer the burning question "Are the VicTsing and the Nulaxy FM transmitters the same?"
September 12, 2017
With a zillion reviews on this product already, I want to be the guy who actually compares the two products you're probably looking at: this Nulaxy unit, and the VicTsing T10. If you've been pulling your hair out trying to figure out the difference, I can tell you that aside from packaging and instruction manual details, they are EXACTLY the same unit (and both labeled as Made in China, for those who have asked). They both have the horribly loud and annoying voice saying 'Searching for pairing' (or Perry, as some claim). The announcement may also accidentally go into Chinese, and if that's happened to you, there's a way to get it back to English...it's in the manual.
The reason I am in a position to compare the two is this: I first bought the VicTsing a couple months ago. I reviewed that unit yesterday, and it's pretty detailed if you want to look for it here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01DDPUQTS/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 . I loved the VicTsing so much I planned to buy a second one for another car (which ALSO doesn't have Bluetooth or Aux In) but I got adventurous instead and bought the SoundBot unit https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01CIZCAG6/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 (a totally different unit which I also reviewed if you want to learn more about it). Sent the SoundBot back for one minor but really annoying reason: every time it turns on, you have to reset the FM frequency.
So I decided to buy a second VicTsing, but figured I'd order the Nulaxy instead to see if there really was a difference between the two. While waiting for the Nulaxy, I wrote to VicTsing and asked them if their unit and the Nulaxy were from the same manufacturer, and I received the following reply: "Please kindly note that we are different store from different manufacture. It mat looks the same. However, the may behaves differently. And please kindly rest assured that VicTsing provides 1 year warranty. VicTsing won't let our customers suffer any loss from our store. Your satisfaction is always our top priority. If you have any further questions, just feel free to contact us."
Well, today after receiving the Nulaxy unit, I repeatedly alternated plugging the VicTsing and the Nulaxy into my 2006 Miata and I can tell you there is absolutely no difference between the two. . . same annoying 'Pairing' announcement, same blue lighted buttons, same battery voltage check upon start-up, same gooseneck, and exactly the same performance. (The VicTsing I got is black with silver trim; the Nulaxy is solid gloss black, but that's because they had more color choices). Exact same price, too. The manuals are different (the VicTsing offers 5-6 languages; the Nulaxy is in English only, and with different verbiage but the same basic instructions.
So since I loved the VicTsing, I must love the Nulaxy exactly the same, right? Yes. The reason for 4 stars? The one thing neither of these units does is allow you to activate Siri. You can accept, reject, and hang up a phone call; you can also redial the last number called. But you can't initiate a phone call or otherwise summon Siri (for example, you can't tell her to switch playlists, or activate the GPS, or send a text). Which is actually kind of a big deal...the Belkin unit I've had for years can do all those things (but it connected via the Aux In on that car, so maybe that is the difference).
Anyway, there are a lot of FM transmitters out there, and you have to make your own path, but at least this review should help you narrow down your choices by ONE...either of these will do exactly the same thing for you, and do it well.
