hi, ive got a rather hard question and do not know whether you can help me.

I have an 8 piece band and each band member has got a wired earpiece containing music they are singing or playing.

i want to make this wireless via bluetooth but do not know whether 8 stereo bluetooth headsets with 8 stereo transmiters can be used at the same time.

or is there a way i can cut down the cost by having one transmitter for all 8 bluetooth headsets. (if they all work together that is)

thanx, if you can answer this your a champion!

Carlos

hmmm as far as i know, you can have numerous BT Devices running as long as they pair up properly.

and as for bluetooth headphones... my guess is that you need one for each transimtter (paired), i very doubt that you can pair 8 headphones to share one transmitter.


May be other would have better idea though.

Yes, Bluetooth networks can have 1 master and 7 slaves, but this is for control and networking only. For headset and audio distribution profiles it's a one-to-one relationship.

won't they clobber each other, queuing up for their turn to transmit?

I know the audio on my BT headset drops quality when i get near a wifi spot......

it seems to me that Bluetooth is overkill for this task. Just a bunch of simple audio wireless headphones, all listening to the same transmitter is all that's needed.

(but bluetooth might be more fun, and deliciously geeky)

Thanks Guys! Champions! When I get the 8 bt transmitters and ear pieces, do i need to seperate all of them in pairs (like 10 metre radius) prior to connecting them or will they find their match all in one bundle?

thanx
