Choosing the Best Bluetooth Adaptor for You 2024

Bluetooth has been undergoing some development, with the murmurings of Auracast and Bluetooth 5 reaching version 5.3. It's a good time to set up Bluetooth for your home, workplace or even in your car.

With 3.5mm jack to Bluetooth adapters being commonplace and using Bluetooth 5+ for lower latency, HD audio and more, understanding some use-cases can be key to selecting the right adapter for you.

Compare the entire lineup of receivers, transmitters and splitters here!

Bluetooth Transmitters

Firstly, Bluetooth transmitters are devices which take a cable input and transmit it wirelessly. This means you can connect a radio, vinyl player, TV or CD player and broadcast that audio wirelessly to headphones, speakers or earphones.

This is handy for updating older media sources to work with newer Bluetooth headphones. You can access your old CD library or enjoy live TV without having to upgrade those devices to an expensive smart TV, for example.

Transmitters, like receivers, vary in complexity and features so take a moment to look over the key comparisons below:
