The bluetooth transmitter worked well, and paired with my Sony DR-BT101 headphones with no trouble.
I connected the USB cable to the USB port on my TV to power the transmitter / keep it charged, and that works well.
* Be sure to read the included instructions for how to pair the device - it's not obvious.
I found that once the transmitter is paired to the headphones, I need to turn the headphones on, then turn the transmitter on. They then connect within a few seconds.
If I then turn the headphones off and then back on, they won't connect.
It seems that the transmitter will only connect to the headphones when it is first powered on. So I need to make sure that I always turn both the transmitter and the headphones off, and then when I want to use them, I have to turn the headphones on, then turn the transmitter on.
If I could have completely hidden this transmitter behind the TV, having it connect to the headphones when the headphones are turned on, I would have given it 5 stars. Having to turn it off and on each time works, but is an extra step that I was hoping to avoid.

I got this to plug into my TV for viewing/listening with my Bluetooth headphones. I find I do need to re-pair any time either the headphones or the transmitter are turned all the way off, but it's just a matter of holding down a couple of buttons. I also like that even though my computer has Bluetooth, I'll often end up just taking this device with me and plugging it into the headphone jack so I don't have to re-pair the headphones and fiddle with the audio settings on the computer... it just works!
One reviewer mentioned a power solution as plugging the power cord into the USB service port on his TV. I tried that, but it didn't work for me. It DID, however, work to plug it into one of the USB ports on the Xbox 360 sitting next to the television. Now the little device has power all the time, whether the Xbox is turned on or not... the xbox doesn't even register its existence, so there are no conflicts. Even when not "plugged in," I do get decent battery life... my headphones run out of juice before the transmitter does.
1. Set the transmitter to pairing mode BEFORE your headphones/speaker/earpiece.
2. Once you hear the "pair successful" beep in your headphones, it may still take up to 20 seconds for the sound to start transmitting. Give it a sec before starting the pairing process again.
3. If you're changing devices to pair with the transmitter, it helps the transmitter pick up the new device faster if you TURN OFF the last device paired (or it's out of range).
4. As long as you don't turn the transmitter or your headphones all the way off, you can move the transmitter from one device to another (like from the TV to the laptop) without needing to re-pair your headphones.

The only issue I have with this item, and its a small one is the sound. I connected it to an Ipod Nano, cause the one I have doesn't have bluetooth. Spent a couple of minutes 'trying' to get it to work, when ALL along it was working, but the volume out put on the Nano is nix, nine, nada. It was turned up all the way all the time and I just couldn't hear it. I didn't buy it to work along with a wireless headphones set. But it was and is worth the investment

Someone raised an issue to connect with a Samsung LED TV and resorted to a set top box connection. I have a brand new Samsung LED (F7500 series) and was wondering if there's a known issue with new Samsung LED's? my set top box has no 35mm jack so I need it to be connected directly to the TV.roei on Feb 7, 2014Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question

Can I use this with TV audio, and, if so, can I restore sound output to the TV by turning off the transmitter or must I disconnect the transmitter from the audio jack on the TV each time?grampapete on Mar 1, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
Thank you for your question. This adapter works for all devices with sound output through 3.5mm connector jack. It’s actually the TV’s setting on resuming the TV audio output by either disconnect or no need to disconnect the adapter.overstockcustomercare1 on Mar 5, 2013
I had to connect it to the audio output of my cable box - the audio out from my TV (a relatively new Samsung LED) was not sufficient to drive the audio. The advantage of this setup is that audio to the Bluetooth transmitter and audio to the TV are independent. So, when using the Bluetooth adapter, I just turn down the audio on the TV, and listen on my Bluetooth headphones.greybeardedgeek on Apr 22, 2013

This is a simple Bluetooth transmitter Plug 3.5mm jack into the MP3 player, and this adapter will transmit audio signal through Bluetooth connection, and you can listen to the music through paired Bluetooth headset.
This item itself has a built in battery, which could be charged through the USB cable that is provided in the package, there is no need to plug into the vehicle for power. The adapter will connect to any paired Bluetooth headset automatically, there is no need to push a button for sync.
This adapter is not a water proof device. The adapter itself will not have any problem to withstand the vibration of a Harley Davidson. However, the MP3 player might have an issue with that.
