Bluetooth Gadgets

One of the things we love most about Bluetooth is that you don't even need to know anything about teeth to use it. Seriously! We're not joking! Dentists, baristas, professional jai alai players -- all of 'em can you Bluetooth. EVEN YOU.

Can't find any reviews of the QFX BT-201. Hmm.

Motorola Smart Controller for Android has 2.5 stars on Amazon, mixed-to-negative reviews, for $23.99.

Don't call it a comeback, I been here for years

Could 2 of these be used together? For example, could 1 be attached to re-transmit Bluetooth signal from smartphone, then the 2nd be attached to a stereo system? In other words, the phone would transmit to the receiver. Both have better antennas, better range.

I purchased the Bluetooth tower last week when it was under a different sale. When using bluetooth, there is constant interference and the remote control doesn't provide any sort of BT controls. I don't advise anyone to purchase it unless they're ignoring the BT capabilities.

I think he wants to know if you can use the 2 miccus devices together, 1 transmitter and 1 receiver. I am ordering 1 of each and I will try it but I dont know if it will work.

Does anyone have an opinion on the Miccus Rx/Tx or the Avantree Saturn Rx/Tx? I am going to purchase the saturn hoping it is better since it has the aptX decoder.

I use a Miccus Rx in my car on a regular basis. It's connected to the Aux jack in the console, and it handles the Texas heat admirably. Great quality audio, and no interference (of course the phone is less than a foot away). I just wooted another one for home.

I have several of the Miccus transmitters and receivers...they work great together...I bought mine for around 35 apiece about 6 months ago - if I needed another bluetooth device I would purchase these in a heartbeat...

I bought the Miccus BBMR-02 Mini-jack RX Bluetooth Music Receiver a few months ago. If given the choice I'd skip it in favor of something more reliable. We used it in my wife's car for a while but the connection was spotty and sound quality was a little off.

The BT-201's work perfectly. Wonderful bass sound through Bluetooth. In fact, I'm so pleased with the bluetooth, I haven't even tried to do direct through auxiliary. Range is good, very satisfied.

I have had one of the white Sylvania branded Bluetooth devices since last Fall. It works very good as an in-vehicle hands free BT with its built in microphone. Speaker sound quality and volume is very good and clear but just in mono from one speaker and built in port opposite the speaker. It paired easily with everything I've tried. I bought mine from Big Lots for $20 plus tax so $17 plus shipping is not a bad price. I think I may buy another as a spare since it works well as an inexpensive hands free device in my work truck and mine has survived a lot of abuse so far.

Avantree Roxa has pretty good reviews on Amazon, but a pretty small price difference given they ship it free...

I purchased a QFX CS-42USBT tower from Woot. It was missing a remote and Woot instructed me to contact QFX.

QFX stated they would FedEx a new one to me. Quite some time later, a remote showed up in the mail.

QFX shipped it to me in a standard letter envelope, unprotected and the remote was physically shattered.

Still waiting to get this resolved.

Ugh. Post office is still hiring Hulk's relatives, I see. If you have problems resolving, feel free to email support@woot.com for some ideas.

Can you comment on sound quality? (I assume that the front of the device allows some operation.)

I bought one of these as well. The very low wattage concerns me. My tower will be delivered tomorrow.

In BT mode, it picks up any line or local WiFi noise and sounds like crap. I have tried to fix this, but between QFX ignoring me after sending me a smashed remote and them now ignoring my emails, I figure I just wasted my money.

Anyone else order the Miccus Home Bluetooth transmitter/receiver?

Notice it was missing the "Dipole Antennae" clearly listed in the package contents?

Cause I ordered 2, and both of mine were missing the Antennae.

Seems strange that both are missing them as they are new. Could you double check the packaging to make sure they didn't hide them really well?

If you still have no luck, contact Miccus to see if they can send them (we don't have parts). If that doesn't work, contact support@woot.com.

I got my Avantree BTHS-849 Over-Ear Headphones the other day, and so far am vary impressed with them. The headset feels heavy and sturdy, and the ear pads cushion nicely. While it's not a true around-the-ear headphone the pads made the headset very comfortable to wear even for extended periods.

The sound quality is GREAT. The bass response is solid and the mids and highs come through clearly. I've heard details in some of my music that I honestly never knew was in there because I'd never heard it before listening through these headphones!

The BT range is pretty good. I've wandered 30-40 feet from my iPhone and still had music coming through loud and clear. I haven't tried pushing the range further yet, but I may try, just to see what I can get.

I really havent' tested the battery life, yet. These stay at my office, and I plug them in to charge every night when I go home. If I get more info about battery life, I'll update.
