Is it possible to have two bluetooth lavalier/lapel microphones connected to an iPad?


This will be used for Skype interviews, where it's important that the sound quality of the two people in one end is extra good (while they're interviewing someone in the other end).


I know that there are wired solutions for this, but is this possible to do with a bluetooth connection?

this might answer it?









Here are the real facts:
Virtually any Bluetooth (BT) headset can be paired to multiple devices. Pairing means that the headset and the device recognize each other and have the capability to make a connection. However the vast majority of BT headsets can only be connected to one paired device at a time.

The only exception are headsets that have the Multipoint feature. These allow you to connect to 2 devices simultaneously. The only devices that I am aware of (and I am pretty well informed...) that have Multipoint are the Jabra BT8010, Jabra JX-10 Series II, Jabra BT5010 and Jabra BT5020. The Plantronics Voyager 510 uses Multipoint, but the 2nd device is their landline hub. The Jabra BT5020 is a behind-the-ear model and essentially the replacement of the BT250v, so you should take a look at that.

That is the wrong way around, I have paired several headsets to a PC before, but only one works at a time. Audio was also aweful low bandwidth telephone quality, not had a bluetooth headset I would call the sound good on at all for the mic. Speakers all been ok tho.

have to agree with richms.. bluetooth isnt that great.. can breakup and the compression losses quality


but maybe ok with voice .. BT4 is meant to be better.




I would of thought best would be a wifi mic system and plug the receiver box into ipad/phone/android PC.




Im sure musicians and presentation events and churches probably in to it.

 reading this site.. seems it should work with 2 mics




If you have professional wireless lavalier and portable microphones you own, you can hook them up to your iPhone, but you'll need to pair them with a 3.5mm adapter first.
