Bluetooth headphones/connect to amp

Post by dorift » Fri 24 Jul, 2015 4:45 pm

Anyone got any ideas about a budget set up?
I've found a few Bluetooth headphones that should do the job (was using dodgy wireless ones till they died), doesn't need to be superb sound. Just not sure if the cheap looking little Bluetooth transmitters on eBay etc will do the job, or is there potential problems I'm missing?
Just need a transmitter to plug into either a 3.5mm headphone jack, and/or rca connection. Just for watching tv in bed.

Not sure whether to just drop the forty or so bucks on some cheap Target headphones plus a ~$15 eBay transmitter, or what other options are available to me?

^^^ Do that, just don't expect miracles. BT audio has come a very long way but is still no match for a wired pair.

But for bedroom TV you'll be laughing.

Arrived yesterday, pretty impressed with them so far. Only paired with my phone so far, as the transmitters haven't turned up yet, but audio is great.
These are the ones I ended up going for; more than I planned spending but hopefully worthwhile

The wrong ones haha (bought one for the lounge as well as the bedroom)
Looking through a multitude of items I accidentally ordered receivers not transmitters. They arrived yesterday lol.
Back to square one.
