Double check with these type of devices that it's an actual Bluetooth adapter suitable for any Bluetooth device vs a much more limited pair a set of headphones but nothing else. The advertising is exceptionally misleading with them. This looks to be a headphone only device and frankly I don't care enough to check. I just wanted to warn others it may be headphone adapters vs a REAL Bluetooth dongle.

Edit: it is only a glorified sound adapter. Buyer beware

It clearly says BT audio adapter. Ppl but these for Switch or other consoles.

Its a USB Soundcard and will only connect to headphones.

The 1Mii is a mixed bag, but will provide better BT quality than any standard windows device can.

On a negative note, it is limited to 16bit/48Khz even though it claims 24bit. It also only works via Directsound. It won't work with WASAPI (edit: got it to work. Just force conversion to 48Khz and output to 16 bit in player), so sound from an audio player app will be mixed with windows sounds. You'll have to disable other apps in the WIndows Volume mixer if you don't want random sounds interrupting your music.

Still...aptx-hd does sound better than regular aptx assuming your headphones are aptx-hd compatible.

I've used it for both music and playing games. Latency isn't bad at all.

Connectivity isn't that great on BT 4.2 headphones. Maybe 10 - 12 feet. If you stay close though, the connection is solid (no drops / hiccups). On BT 5 earbuds, I could eke out closer to 20 feet.

For $18, its a good deal....presuming you are looking for the best BT audio quality you can get out of a windows device at present.


There's the new USB-C Creative BT-W3 to consider, but its $40 and it looks suspiciously similar to the 1Mii in feature set. I'd only shell out for that if it was true 24bit. I highly suspect it will also be limited to 16bit and suffer the same directsound limitation. (Edit: Found W3 spec..it is also limited to 16bit 48Khz. Probably be same chip)

Advice for Macbook Pro 16 Owners. This may break the internal bluetooth functionality.

There is a bug that bluetooth adapters disable the bluetooth on board. Here is a thread with the ongoing problem and possible fixes.

This should not occur here because your system sees this as a USB Sound Card, not a Bluetooth Adapter. Slee Stack has a good explanation. This item does not interact in any way with your system's Bluetooth any more than plugging in USB speakers would.

ThisYoutube review [youtube.com] shows it on a Mac. Note, at least with this Mac the System Volume does nothing when this is activated...you have to control volume from the speakers/headphones. So, bad news if your speakers/headphones do not have volume controls on them. (common with TWS headphones, not common with Bluetooth speakers).

Intriguing device for $18.

I bought this for ~27 a couple months ago. I primary wanted it because my work laptop is admin bluetooth locked/disabled even if I plug in a new USB Bluetooth dongle (this installs as a sound card) and I wanted to use it with a BT headset for calls, etc. I experimented with a couple different headsets but the microphone volume was too low and coworkers complained it sounded like I was distant. Was still looking to pickup an aptx hd headset to see if that helps...

For a sec I thought this was a 1/8" audio out to BT adapter, the kind you'd use to be able to use your BT headphones on an airplane's entertainment system or on an older piece of home AV equipment that doesn't have BT. Any recs for those? I've got a bunch of BT earphones now and it would be nice to be able to use them on non-BT devices.

No...TVs do not have the right kind of USB. You would need something like this for $16. [amazon.com] The link is for the cheapest Bluetooth 5.0 with Aptx LL I see right now with Optical and AUX input (to work with almost any TV.

Do you mean this $35 Avantree? [amazon.com] They are similar. The differences I see are:

1. The Avantree may have longer Range
2. The Avantree has Aptx LL but not Aptx HD (the 1Mii has both). Aptx HD gives you the best possible sound but usually with a lag....so not great to sync with videos.
3. The Avantree is Bluetooth 4.1 and the 1Mii is 5.0 (not a big deal for audio).
4. The Avantree has a lot more user reviews...and Avantree has an excellent and experienced USA based support network who are more likely to be able to talk you through technical problems.

I see Avantree is just about to release a Bluetooth 5.0 version. [avantree.com] This new one says it will support simultaneous voice (transmission) and music/sound (reception) for gaming....which these others do not.

1Mii is a very well respected brand too....but Avantree has a bigger presence in the U.S.

Not for cheap.

The Shanling M0 (and Q1) DAPs do have a USB Sound card function and can transmit BT LDAC, Unfortunately, they only transmit aptx (no HD) via Bluetooth.

Also you're looking at $100-$120 too. Now if you need a player/receiver too, maybe worth the price?

HiBy R3 Pro and HiDizs AP80 Pro DAPs also will transmit LDAC but cost even more.
