1st Logitech wireless music adapter for Bluetooth audio devices

Logitech Bluetooth audio adapters Logitech Bluetooth Audio Adapter is one of the most popular and best-selling devices. It can convince by a compact design, simple operation, and good sound qualities.

A red or green LED indicates whether a Bluetooth device is connected to the adapter or not. The first-time pairing of a Smartphone or Tablet PC with the adapter is initiated by a long keystroke on the Bluetooth adapter.

After successful pairing, which is acknowledged with a short signal tone, the paired devices will connect automatically in the future. In addition to a chinch/jack input, the user has a 3.5mm line-in connection available to connect Bluetooth-enabled devices to the home sound system.

A chinch to 3.5mm audio cable is also included in the scope of delivery. The intuitive operation of the device more than makes up for the scarce user manual. All in all, Logitech offers a successful, reliable product for a good price with the Bluetooth audio adapter.

Philips Bluetooth HiFi adapter AEA2000/12

A little more elegant and modern than its Logitech competitor, Philips offers the AEA2000, a Bluetooth audio adapter of equal quality. The AEA2000 also convinces with good sound quality and easy handling.

The adapter has an integrated LED status light and can be connected to the stereo system with a simple RCA cable. As with the Logitech competitor, the concise operating instructions are criticized. In addition, a slight asynchrony is noticeable when playing movies – but this is irrelevant for pure audio signals.

The scope of delivery includes the Bluetooth adapter, power supply, RCA to 3.5mm cable, and the quick start guide.

Philips Bluetooth HiFi adapter AEA2500/12 with NFC and Apt-x

Philips Bluetooth NFC Adapter AEA2500_12The optically very similar AEA2500 from Philips offers a further possibility to pair your own smartphone with the adapter in addition to the functions of its little brother with NFC.

NFC-capable devices can be coupled faster and more comfortably by a short touch of the two devices. NFC makes perfect sense, especially if several smartphones are to be used with this device: The smartphone to be paired is held briefly over the adapter, a vibration confirms successful Bluetooth pairing, and the other device is connected.

According to Philips, aptX should also improve the audio quality of the Bluetooth transmission.

Also, Harman Kardon sends with the BTA 10 a Bluetooth audio receiver into the running. Especially its small size of only 50 mm x 50 mm and the more extensive scope of delivery is convincing.

Thus the customer finds in the packing beside the adapter, a power pack, and the short instructions both a Chinch cable and a 3.5mm jack cable, in order to be able to merge the Bluetooth adapter into its sound system.

The HARMAN TrueStream connectivity promises thereby the highest sound quality, which also different users can confirm. Unlike the other devices, the power connector is a standard USB port.

EasyAcc® Soundweaver Bluetooth 4.0 Audio Receiver

EasyAcc® Soundweaver Bluetooth 4.0 Audio ReceiverThe most affordable Bluetooth audio receiver on this list is the EasyAcc® Soundweaver. Here, too, the buyer receives both required cables. With Bluetooth 4.0, the sound quality should be good enough for most users.

However, the device itself is relatively large, measuring 11cm x 11cm x 2cm, and therefore cannot be placed invisibly as easily as competing products. Pairing with a smartphone or tablet PC should still work perfectly.

If the size of the EasyAcc does not bother you and you are also looking to save money, the Bluetooth Audio Adapter is certainly a good alternative.
