This wiki has been updated 5 times since it was first published in December of 2018. Currently in its 5th iteration, Bluetooth has completely changed the way we consume media and transfer data, though, like any wireless technology, it has its pitfalls. One drawback is that the relatively underpowered radios integrated within many devices simply can't push a signal very far. The right long-range transmitter will extend the maximum distance to 60 feet or more. When users buy our independently chosen editorial selections, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

January 06, 2019:

We know you might be upset that most new phones lack a headphone jack. But don't get mad; get Bluetooth! Seriously though, if you're on the fence about ditching the wires, know that the compression used by Bluetooth to transmit audio is remarkable efficient, and very few listeners will notice a difference in quality compared to wired connections. In fact, if you're over 40, you almost certainly won't be able to tell a difference between a plugged-in set of headphones, and one using the high-definition AptX codec. The company called Anker was formed by a former Google employee fed up with poor-quality imported products, and like most of their stuff, the SoundSync is a top-quality device. Avantree is another very well-known, yet low-cost brand. 1Mii's releases tend to have relatively straightforward, self-explanatory controls, making them relatively convenient to use. BT Magic, Soulcker, and Gold Armor aren't very well-known brands, but their transmitters receive quite good reviews. And the HomeSpot is one of the only reliable pre-paired sets we found, which is more suited to some home entertainment systems, though possibly not quite as versatile as two-in-models.
