There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Everything was fine for about 2 or 3 minutes and then the sound began to skip. That is, there were silent spaces in the TV sound with part of the dialog missing. After about 5or 6 minutes the sound completely broke up and I could not make sense of any of the sound from the TV. This sequence repeated itself - normal sound, missing pieces of the sound, completely broken up sound - while I listened and I eventually gave up.
I also tried using the aux audio output thinking that perhaps the issue was the digital audio output from my TV but that connection was even worse.
I had been using the earbuds for some time without any issue but, just to be sure, I connected them to the BT on my computer and played an internet movie without issue. I then connected it to my smartphone and again, without issue. listened to audio. I was really disappointed in this unit and wanted a replacement, making the assumption that perhaps it was the unit I received, but Amazon did not offer to send me a replacement and I was forced to choose between a refund or a gift card. I now must try to find some other unit that will work better than this one.
As I mentioned in my review I had made the assumption that my problems, described above, were related to the specific unit I received rather than the product as a whole. I assumed this because the product had generally received very good reviews and my unit did not work well at all. Sunvalleytek customer service contacted me and offered to send a replacement unit and, when it arrived, the first thing I did was charge it and, after it had charged, connect it to my TV. As with the previous unit I used the optical connection and set the unit to transmit.
I was able to pair my bluetooth headset to the unit, turned the TV mute control on and then sat down to watch. Unlike my previous experience this time the unit worked properly. I watched TV for about 20 minutes and the sound was rock solid, no skips, no misses, no breakup. I then set the cable box (I use Tivo) to play some of the recordings and they worked properly. I then connected to Netflix and watched some streaming video and it worked without an issue. As a last test I turned the DVD player on, inserted a disk and watched a bit of it and, as with the other tests this worked properly. I had no problems.
One of the things I wanted to test was the time lag between words being spoken and the sound being received. I had already tried a unit from a different manufacturer and found that I had gotten about a quarter second delay between the visual indication of a sound and the recipe of the sound in my earbuds and I wanted to see if this unit was any different. While there may have been some delay it had to be very small because I generally could not see any difference between people's lips moving and the words being played in my earbuds. This unit must have faster hardware for whatever delay there might have been to not be noticeable.
I then tried this with a second pair of bluetooth earbuds and found it to also work properly. One thing I liked about this unit is that, while it is small, it is not so small as to be unstable. The other unit I had received was so small and light that a slight movement of the cable meant that the unit itself might be knocked to the floor. This unit, while small and light, is more substantial than the competitor and I appreciated that. It also has a small rubber circle on the bottom which makes it less likely to be moved accidentally and prevents it from scratching the surface it sits on.
The last thing I want to mention was the speed and helpfulness of Sunvalleytek's customer service people. They contacted me right away, they sent out a replacement the same day using 2 day delivery and it was delivered on a Sunday. I consider that to be extraordinarily good customer service and I wanted to mention how helpful they were.
In general I was very pleased with the replacement and have changed my review rating accordingly. I understand that sometimes a bad unit can get through the manufacturing process, even with the best quality control, and this seemed to be such a case.
I've used bluetooth receivers before bluetooth speakers were readily available and inexpensive, but never used/needed a transmitter. I finally found THIS lovely little item--which does BOTH (only one at a time, but I really only needed the transmitter). I also had to pick up a Toslink splitter, as well as a dual USB adapter (to plug in both devices--the splitter and the transmitter). It took me about 15 minutes to make all the necessary connections, and I held my breath as I tried (in vain the first couple of tries) to connect it to my headset. (I think I wasn't putting it into pairing mode correctly the first couple of times).
And it WORKS--beautifully! There is a VERY slight latency (probably some on the transmitter end and some in the headphones, but it isn't enough to bother me--I only notice if I REALLY look closely. It's small and light, and I wound up taping it with electrical tape to the back of my TV (which is mounted on an extendible arm mount with no wires visible). I was afraid that might cause interference, but none that I could detect. It's so small that if I had to, I could set it on top of the frame or even put it on the wall, but this seems to be fine for now.
Another nice feature--it comes with an ACTUAL instruction booklet--nicely produced and bound. It also comes with a USB cable, a set of RCA connectors and a standard audio cable, as well as a nice, flexible optical cable, so you should be able to use it with whatever configuration you need. And to top it all off, it comes packaged as nicely as an Apple device. You really get the sense that this company wants to impress.
I'm hopeful that it will serve me well until I'm ready to replace the TV. But at the price, even if it dies after a year, it's a bargain.
Very happy customer.
