There is a latency delay in audio however, even using aptx headphones. The delay is minimal, so if the tv volume is off, it's comfortably noticeable.
If anyone else is watching with him and listening through the tv speakers, the delay comes through the headsets like an echo.
This is not an issue if watching the news or sports, but for movies and tv shows where there's dialogue and background soundtracks, the latency is more noticeable.
We paired this with the BlueAnt 3.0 Stereo Bluetooth Adapter & Headphones specifically because that receiver allows use of your own headsets.
If he's watching sports or the news, he uses regular earbuds (or sometimes just puts one side in). This way he can still hear enough "outside" noise to be social, talk and comment about the news or game with us, have conversation and not feel isolated.
When watching movies or tv shows however, he switches to his noise cancelling earbuds so latency does not conflict.
This is not the most ideal, as this socially isolates him during these times, but it's the best solution we've found yet.
One star deduction because occasionally the signal drops off and requires turning off, then re-pairing of the device.
Bonus half star + because this can be used while on constant charge so we have it permanently plugged into the outlet behind the tv and don't have to bother with recharging.
Minor star deduction because it looks cheap and flimsy. Also, the on/off switch is small and not easy to use (have to use fingernail). This device needs to be turned off when not in use, then turned on again in order for it to find the headset automatically, so an easier to use switch would be helpful. If it's just left on, you have to go through the pairing process again. Not sure if this is how it's supposed to work, but that's what we've had to do to get it to work.
Overall though, it's providing a solution for difficult problem so until a better solution comes along, we are very happy with this.
! ! *** update *** after using this for awhile, the signal drops became more frequent. Having to re-pair the device everytime that happens became too frustrating, especially because that meant interrupting and missing whatever tv event we were watching.
Little more expensive, but much better solution that we came up with : fm transmitter to broadcast tv audio through a vacant fm station (like you'd do in a car to listen to your ipod through the car speakers), iPod nano generation 7 to receive the fm station, and earbuds of your choice. The biggest expense with this solution is the ipod nano, so you could cut your cost greatly by using a much less expensive fm receiver --- ie, a regular fm pocket radio, instead of the iPod nano --- but, we wanted something small and digital.
Here are the components we used:
SainSonic AX05B transmitter - $62
IPod nano 7th generation - $140 (only generations 5-7 have fm receivers)
Earbuds of choice
Happy family now!
Pluged this transmitter in the back of the TV (TV Audio Out Audio/Video red/white outputs) and pluged the USB into the TV for power, you can also use the AC adapter provided. Then used a seperatly purchased Sony Bluetooth wireless headphones. Now we have the TV set up so the person with the headphones can listen at their own volume either with or without the other audio going through the souround sound systme.
Range of operation depended on how many walls there were blocking the signal. Made it to about 25 feet through two walls. Otherwise made it about 100 feet through the windows out into the yard. Put the music channel on and had wireless TV music almost all around the house.
Other things of note. This is a transmitter, it will turn any device (through different AV cables) into a Bluetooth transmitter that you can then pickup on a device that acts as a receiver like a speaker or headphones.
Great price for the value, another idea was to buy a receiver (like a surround sound) that has Bluetooth built in. This was a better economic choice and can be used in this manner in different room and on different TV's, etc.
But there was a problem. My mnxo worked as described right out of the box. I left it plugged in overnight to charge its battery and because that's the convenient setup for my context. The next day the mnxo was dead. No nothing, even the indicator lights didn't work. I connected it to different power outlets, and verified that audio was coming into the mnxo from my TV, just like the night before, but absolutely nothing. So, I'm returning it. Not sure if I'll buy another one, or just abandon Bluetooth altogether as a TV external speaker technology.
