Quite some time ago I was looking for a solution to those tangled headphone wires which eventually snapped. So I bought this together with a set of Bluetooth headphones, and this worked great. I used the transmitter on my phone to play music (and answer calls as I found out later) I also used them to listen to sound on my laptop. When I first tried to pair them it was a little difficult at first but once paired with anything they worked a treat. So how good are they, I sat them in my front room (3bed semi) and walked into the back garden where I lost the signal. I would estimate something in the region of 40 to 50 foot. I then walked back to the house and at the back door I picked up the signal again. Now for upstairs - no problem at all in any of the bedrooms, a slight loss of clarity in the bathroom but then this was the furthest point away from this transmitter. I later worked out that this was transmitting through 3 walls and a floor with several copper heating pipes running through.
When a signal was being lost I found that you would get a little bit of sound corruption and hissing, this gave you plenty of warning before a total loss of signal. If asked I would give this handy little item a score of 9/10.
So after all these years of use, they seem to have gone missing, so here I am again to buy another.... or maybe two!!!
