    Really great product!!!!

    I bought this product mainly because most of the tv shows I like to watch at home are tabloid talk shows and my wife can't stand them. So a great compromise was to purchase a Bluetooth transmitter so I can watch my favorite shows without her having to hear the chaos. First off, I don't write reviews ever, and yes, this is real! Overall, this is one of the better purchases I had made in long time! This product is fantastic! There is no delay in sound and the quality is suburb. I paired my Bluetooth transmitter with my Beats brand wireless/Bluetooth headphones. It has a long transmit range too. I am able to walk around different rooms in the house with no disruptions. I have not tried using it as a receiver yet, but I'm sure it will be just as great as the transmitter. This product is also really small and lightweight and compact (approx 2 in. tall by 1 & half in. wide and 1/4 inch thick) so it's great for carrying to friends house (supports up to 2 headsets at once) and easy to pair, simply press and hold the power button and it automatically paired! I recommend this product to anyone looking to watch tv or gaming or listen to music as loud as they want from any room, without anyone else having to hear a peep! At a price tag of around $40 bucks, it's definitely worth it!!

    Does what it is supposed to do and does it well

    I purchased the Aluratek - Bluetooth Audio Receiver and Transmitter Model: ABC01F from Best Buy to add Bluetooth audio capabilities to my car. The car radio does have Bluetooth for the phone, but does not have it for audio. I didn't want a product that would 'take over' the phone capabilities of the car. Startup was simple. I switched the Aluratek to 'Receive' mode (switch on the side of the device), plugged it in to my AUX port on the radio and turned it on. My iPhone 7 almost immediately paired to it and Pandora began to play thru my radio speakers. The sound was just as good as when I plugged in my lightning connector to the AUX port. Reviews of other similar products that I looked at stated that there was a buzzing sound from the radio if the Bluetooth device was charging via the car's cigarette lighter. This is definitely not the case for the Aluratek. I keep the device constantly charging on the cigarette lighter. This way I never have to worry about recharging it or having it run empty while driving. Sound is great, even at low volume levels. With the top of the car down, and the radio turned up high, I hear no distortion. When I leave the car, I don't do anything with the Aluratek. It automatically powers down in about 5 minutes. I also do not stop Pandora on my iPhone. When it loses the Bluetooth connection, it simply goes into pause-mode. When I return to the car, I simply give the Aluratek a quick turn-on (small power button on the side of the device). The iPhone pairs automatically, and after about 10 seconds, Pandora resumes. In all, I'm very happy with this device and would recommend it to anyone looking to add Bluetooth audio to their car's radio thru the AUX port.

    Easy Set Up But Low/Limited Volume & High Price

    I purchased this for an older smart tv so that Bluetooth headphones could be used to listen to it privately. Pros: it is both a transmitter and a receiver, it includes a red/white Y-style RCA cable adapter as well as a standard aux plug, it charged quickly with the included usb charging cable, it has a separate power button, and it was very easy to set up and pair. Cons: the volume was very limited and low, requiring the volume on the Aluratek and both the headphones and tv/cable to be at max to listen comfortably (loud volume is impossible. Audio quality is just passable. Additionally, the battery life is unknown and the price is quite high. If this unit was priced at $25 or less, it would be much more reasonable; $42.50 is really an exorbitant amount particularly for an item that lacks high quality audio fidelity.

    I needed a Bluetooth device to use at work so I can listen to music from my PC without being tethered. I have a LG HBS-730 headset and it connects flawlessly The headset does not reconnect after every power cycle , but a quick double tap of the button on the device after power up connects it right back up. I have used it as an audio output of my S7 Edge, without issue. I wire it to the headphone jack, connect with multiple headphones according to the instructions, and boom, all audio to both headsets. Same with my Galaxy S2 tablet. Not issues. Audio quality is excellent. One thing to remember, if you are not getting any audio, and you have checked the audio output of the source, and headphones are turned up, make sure the volume of the device itself is turned up. The +- buttons control volume of the transmitted audio. I have not tested it as a receiver yet, so I have no info on that mode. Once I do, I will update this review. For now, great product, works exactly as advertised. I recommend it. BTW, unless you need the digital optical connection, save your money and purchase this one. If you need the digital optical connection, model ADB1B would be the better choice.

    Take TWO; they're small!

    I bought TWO Aluratek bluetooth devices to give my iPhone or iPad the ability to transmit to more than one bluetooth reproducer. Since I have two larger bluetooth speakers and a medium-sized speaker by the same manufacturer, I decided to use one Aluratek in transmit mode, connected to the headphone jack of my iPad. I used the other Alurtek in receive mode to drive the two larger speakers wired together using Y-connectors, so that one speaker was pumping out only right-channel information and the other only left-channel information. The smaller speaker was functioning as a pseudo center-channel speaker (carrying both right and left channels). The Aluratek transmitter was successfully paired with both the Aluratek receiver and the center bluetooth speaker. I'm willing to bet that I'll have the best audio in the campground! Anyway, I am pleased with my purchase and definitely recommend spending the few extra dollars to get the dual-mode model (transmit or receive) rather than a single-mode model (like the unit that is strictly a recever and has a pigtail audio plug instead of an audio jack). Yes, take TWO; they're small!

    Bluetooth for all devices!

    Very impressive little device! This device turns things not equipped with Bluetooth into Bluetooth-ready equipment! It can transmit the signal OR receive it, depending on your choice! If you want to listen to a VCR (or anything with RCA outputs) or an old Walkman (or anything with an earphone jack) on your Bluetooth earphones, plug the included RCA cord or earphone jack in & switch the device to Transmit. If you want to listen to your Smartphone music through your non-Bluetooth equipped speakers, just plug in the included earphone jack into an Aux or input jack and set the device to Receive! It is rechargeable & comes with the plug (standard USB ends) to charge it. It lasts for hours on a single charge. All this in a tiny device for a small amount of money ($30 or so when I got it). This is worth it for anyone who has electronics that are not Bluetooth capable!!

    Multifunctional Device - Takes Out the Guess Work

    This Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver is Superb! I love the fact that I can use it to stream music from my iPhone to my non-Bluetooth stereo system. I just plugged this into my receiver's headphone port and I was instantly streaming Pandora throughout my surround sound in the home. I switched over from receiver mode to Bluetooth transmitter mode then plugged it into the headphone jack on my TV so I could stream directly to my new Bose Bluetooth Headphones. I really like to watch TV like this as I feel like I'm in a movie theater and I get to tune out all the backgound noise (sorry honey). The pairing with my Iphone and my headphones was very easy. Great multipurpose product!

    I came into the store planning to buy the cheaper, transmitter-only model and decided that for only $10 more, it made sense to get this model instead, in case I ever needed a Bluetooth receiver sometime in the future. I had no real trouble setting it up and syncing it to the little Bluetooth speaker I also bought, although the directions were initially a little confusing to me (I'm a Bluetooth newbie!). They could be better organized by grouping "Pairing in transmitter mode" then "Pair with two devices in TX mode" together under one "Operation" heading. In the kitchen area of my apartment, at last I can hear the TV from the living room without having to crank up the volume full blast. I'm sure my neighbors appreciate it! BTW, previously I tried wireless headphones but didn't like having to wear them while cooking, washing the dishes, etc.
