Is this really front page material? I've seen this receiver regularly for $40. And when you consider other similar products, this logitech isn't that great a deal. It's also only Bluetooth 2.1.

I'm a tech noob. I purchased a bluetooth Lenovo mouse (via SD Link), and everytime I try to use the mouse for my Toshiba computer, it states that the wlan modem and the bluetooth mouse use the same frequency, so my internet connection can get slower. It does seem slower when I use the mouse. How will this react if I use it with my IPad, will my wifi from the IPad get slowed down? Any solutions?

I'll assume this is receive only. I would love to have a unit to plug into my tv headphone jack and transmit a Bluetooth signal to a pair of Bluetooth headphones. Does such a product exist?

Another option would be to buy one of those clip on style bluetooth headsets. Just bought one for $10 and hooked it up to a set up powered speakers instead of the headphones that came with it. Works great.

Some advantages are:
1) Can run off battery power so it's truly portable. The Logitech has to have wall power.
2) You can control your device (track forward or back, volume up or down, play, pause) from the bluetooth device.
3) You can even answer calls if needed and use it as a speakerphone.

Can't say anything about sound quality since I haven't heard the Logitech, but the way I'm doing it sounds great. Either way, this isn't the ideal way to get high quality sound.
That's not at all the same thing. This device is if you want to use your existing stereo system (think a home theater surround setup), not a little piece on your ear.

Yes. Search Amazon for "bluetooth transmitter [amazon.com]".

I know it's triple the price, but if I were going to get this, I'd consider getting an Apple TV instead. Similar size box, but it does so much more (and streams over WiFi instead of bluetooth). Assuming, of course, the bluetooth device you're streaming from is an iPhone.

Deal is almost dead. The link shows a main price of $49.97, but I was able to get on by selecting "Details 4 new from $29.99" (Prime) a few inches below it.

There is no comparison between the devices. Each is designed for completely different purposes. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)

Yes. Search Amazon for "bluetooth transmitter [amazon.com]".
Yes it is the same thing except it's designed for portable use with headphones. Headphones = receiver. It's not rocket science. This is the price the Logitech should always be. At normal price it is not competitive with the competition. I've been using one that looks like a dog tag. It charges via USB, and I plug it in to the bedroom soundbar and portable speakers. Definitely not front page material. Heck, half the ones you can buy are available from china stores for under $20 and are just OEM versions

They both solve the problem of "how do I wirelessly play music from my iPhone on my home stereo?" In addition to just music, the AppleTV also does video, etc. I understand they're quite different, but I was just saying that for me, personally, if I was going to bother with a device that does one, I might upgrade to the device that does much more.


I wasn't even looking for it, but I went to Monoprice and one of the featured products is similar to this one, and ships for $23 [monoprice.com].

In all fairness, does apple tv do bluetooth for all devices or only for ios devices? Not really the same if it's the latter. You're taking a product that is a standard and works for all devices and comparing it to something specific for one platform.

That being said, these products [satechi.net] are bluetooth receivers and have the plus of being able to be used portably with headphones due to the built in battery and can control the player it's linked to as well as just be more of a basic receiver plugged into an input on one's stereo, soundbar, powered speakers or anything else with an aux input of any sort. And it's cheaper.

As far as the autoconnect, I don't know a whole lot that do. My Belkin one in the car does, but it's a speakerphone and made for the car. Simple unobtrusive setup. Use it to stream from the phone or tablet and as a speakerphone when I forget the headset.

Checkout Belkin Aircast [amazon.com] as well as the Griffin BlueTrip [amazon.com]. The Griffin copied a bit from the belkin from the looks of it.

Recommend you check your audio devices, as I checked the Logitech site and this product does not appear to support either the ATPX or EDR Bluetooth profiles. EDR is supported by iPad and iPhone, ATPX by other phones, using either offers dramatically better audio quality. Belkin is a better option in this regard for $25 on Amazon. Works well for me!
