1. iblue Bluetooth Audio Adapter for Speakers
It connects quickly and has a good range and several users have had high praises for its Bluetooth range. At the same time, the small and obtrusive form factor means that you can stow it anywhere near your stereo.
Last but not least, the iblue Bluetooth adopter delivers decent audio quality for its price.
2. esinkin Bluetooth Receiver
The esinkin Bluetooth Receiver doesn’t have any on/off switches. This removes the hassle switch it on manually every time you want to listen to your favorite songs. You need to flip the main switch, and the device will turn on. It’s worth noting that it doesn’t have a built-in battery and needs continuous power.
As noted earlier, the range is sufficient to allow you to walk around your room with the music dropping or breaking. So far, it has received good reviews from its user base, and several users have spoken highly of its sound quality, range, and Bluetooth connectivity.
3. 1Mii B06 Plus Bluetooth Receiver
The connectivity is pretty solid. And unless you have solid walls or other constructions in-between, the odds are that the device will stay connected to your phone. For the price, the audio quality is good. Of course, you won’t get CD-quality audio, but you get the idea.
The 1Mii B06 Plus is popular and has received over 10,000 reviews on Amazon. Most of these reviews speak about the easy-to-use nature and the strong connectivity.
4. Anker Soundsync A3341
The latter means that you can stream sound from your TV to your Bluetooth headphones. It’s a decent Bluetooth adapter and connects easily to classic (and old) stereo systems. And yes, the company ships AUX, RCA, and optical cables along with the adapter.
The audio quality is decent, and there’s no lag or latency in the receiver. But if you want to buy this audio adapter for its dual functioning, you might want to consider the lag. Quite a few users have mentioned a significant lag in the audio between the source and the Bluetooth device.
And this lag will prove to be an obstacle if you plan to watch TV while connected to your Bluetooth earphones. But it will be in the clear, if you limit it to only songs and podcasts.
Finally, the Soundsync A3341 connects easily and has a good range. However, if you want the flexibility to move around your house, you may want to skip this one.
5. Audioengine B1
Other than that, it sports a small and sleek body. Another highlight of the Audioengine B1 is the long-range, thanks to the antenna at the top. The range and the audio quality have surprised quite a few users.
The setup process is quick and easy. And like the Anker product above, the company ships essentials like RCA audio cable and USB AC power adapter along with the adapter.
If you do not mind spending money for better audio quality and seamless Bluetooth connectivity, then the Audioengine B1 is right up your alley.
Bridge the Gap
Bluetooth audio adapters/receivers are the best way to bridge the gap between conventional stereo systems and new-age smartphones and tablets. The fact that you can play your favorite tracks from Spotify or Tidal with minimal hassles makes the deal a lot sweeter.
So, which one of these will you buy?
