Works well but don't move!
on 9 August 2013
The initial charge time is two-and-a-half hours. The receiver is simple to set up, pair and connect with my mobile phone and I am very pleased with the sound quality. My only concern is that any movement of the phone (or receiver) causes the music to pause briefly, and sometimes the signal is lost, causing the track to stop playing and the need to re-connect the device to the receiver.
I bought this to enable my favourite headphones for Bluetooth since the receiver is lightweight and would sit in a shirt pocket while my phone could be in my bag. The thing I didn't consider is that the receiver only works satisfactorily if the phone is close to the receiver, ie in the same pocket, defeating the object of the exercise.
I also own a Logitech Boombox and that has no problem dealing with a moving phone when connected by Bluetooth, so I can only assume that this little receiver isn't really up to scratch.
UPDATE The only way to enjoy seam-free listening without gaps in reception is to have the receiver very close to the Bluetooth device ie within a couple of cntimetres (which, as I stated above, rather defeats the object). However, there is a noticeable increase in volume when using this receiver - I had to turn my ipod doen to about 50% to get acceptable volume that didn't blow my head off. This is an unexpected bonus for this little piece of kit.
