I'm looking for a couple of "budget" priced BT dongles which work with Windows 10 - both models that PBTech have, have various users complaining Win10 support is useless with them.


The uses for them will just to be streaming from my work PC to a BT speaker, and the other for my home PC to use my BT headset. Range isnt an issue as both workstations are on the desks and i dont plan on wandering around with the headset :)


Any recommendations or real world use of the two models PB have ?




While on the subject as well, anyone know if the mic will work via BT on the PC ? So i could use it for Skype etc ? The manual for the headset mentions playing music etc but no mention of the mic.

Cousin got a $20 one from there that works to headphones in win 10 just fine. Plugged it in and it worked. Only crap headphones so just do the horrid sounding modes tho. Ive not had any luck getting apt-x working on win 10 even with the CSR stick I have that did it fine on 7.


Mic works but in headset mode which is the mono one with useless sound, as soon as you play something thru the headphone profile the mic disables, so you end up with it sounding bad like an old fasioned PSTN call. Logitech wireless headset works so much better than bluetooth for everything.

No idea of PB tech ones but the last 2 ~$2 ones I got off Aliexpress worked fine with Windows 10.
