Anyone used a Bluetooth transmitter from TV to headphones, or bt speaker?
Looking for a solution for our bedroom TV.
Obviously it has to have good audio sync.

Looked at a heap on ebay but not sure on quality.

Ability for the receiver to have 2x headphones would be cool but not essential.

Telme2 TosBlue with a pair of apt-x bluetooth headphones will be as good as you get using Bluetooth. The X does one pair, the Y two.

 

If you search GZ for Telme2, you will see plenty of threads about it.

I have one of these: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32983658551.html

 

It works fine, no problems.

 

It's plugged into the SPDIF socket on the TV, so I can use the TV remote to switch audio to it. It is powered from a USB socket on the TV, so I put the whole thing inside the removable cover on the back of the TV.

A good review by @sbiddle here:

I have one and it is an amazing little device. Highly recommended.





My views (except when I am looking out their windows) are not those of my employer.

Ty these airfly ones.   I use them on my long haul flights with my Bose QC35.  

 

Its about $70 .   Works a treat and should be suitable for your application, but only single input

 

Pricier than other ones  from AliExpress.

Twelvesouth make one - designed for turning an inflight headphone jack into an AirPods-compatible device, but as far as I can tell, it's really just a Bluetooth transmitter.

Do they make it, or simply rebadge one of the many similar ones available through AliExpress?

That's a great question, but I have to ask, does anyone really make anything, or are all common products just versions of another product?

I believe about 80% of indieGogo and Kickstarter projects are just rebadged Aliexpress stuff. Another 10% is just scam. About 10% might be something genuinely new.

I keep an eye on KS Technology projects, and have bought into a few. I agree with the 10% scam figure, and I'd throw in another 50% as hopeless optimistic. But I don't think there's anywhere near that much rebadged AliX stuff. In fact, I'd say 80% genuinely new and 10% AliX would be  closer.
