HTC’s Bluetooth Music Adapter Now Available, Works with Most Bluetooth Enabled Devices

I am not sure if you remember hearing about HTC’s cool new Bluetooth Music Adapter that was announced at this years Mobile World Congress. If not, it’s this great little dongle that allows you to wirelessly stream music to an auxiliary input on any stereo that has a 3.5mm headphone jack and is finally available for purchase. What’s great about this little guy is that although it is made by HTC, it is not limited to HTC devices only. Since it uses Bluetooth it should work with any device that has Bluetooth connectivity and will eliminate the need for that annoying audio cable while driving or playing music at home. Simply plug the dongle into your car or home stereo’s auxiliary input and stream away! It will even auto-pair with select HTC smartphones and tablets.

The dongle supports A2DP as well as CSR aptX so music will sound much better than Bluetooth audio has sounded in the past. Sporting a microUSB port for charging, the dongle’s 85 mAh battery is rated at 5 hours of play time and will last 120 hours on standby. It also has a handy power-off feature that will activate after the device remains idle for a set period of time. Retailing for $59.99, you can order one right now from Sprint and have it delivered to your house in only a couple of days. I called my local Sprint store and ordered one so be on the lookout for a review in the near future. In the meantime, if you want to get one for yourself click through the source link below to place an order. This is going to be one handy accessory for those of you who use your Android device as a music player.

Thanks Kevin!

    One more thing to charge? Meh I’ll pass, the dock works just fine, remote music playing is better using your phone as a remote to your desktop anyway, not the actual player

      Why even do that?   Just play your music from the cloud.

    I’m wondering if you could have plugged into an amp/car stereo etc and have it constantly on charge, so you could make any device with a jack input always ready to take a bluetooth input. Could this be tried during the review pls?

    Or search for “a2dp bluetooth receiver 3.5mm” on ebay for similar at a fraction of the price.
    I have one that is powered while the ignition is on, so battery life is not relevant.
