Mpow BH129 Bluetooth Receiver for Car, Aux Bluetooth Car Adapter 5.0 for Wired Speakers/Headphones/Home Music Streaming Stereo,15-Hour Battery Life,Easy Control On/Off Slider, Built-in Microphone
I got Bluetooth Receiver For Car device to use with my Google Pixel 2 XL since Google decided to kill the headphone jack like apple did. I have a pair of vmoda m100 headphones that I love and used them about 6 hours a day everyday with my old nexus 6p. When i upgraded to the pixel 2 xl I was afraid that my vmoda headphones would end up sitting in a drawer and not get used since they are not wireless. I am glad I gave this unit a try because it has made it where I can continue using my vmoda headphones everyday.
The good;~ Battery life – The battery life is great, I can get about 10 – 11 hours of use between charges. This is more than good enough for most flights if needed, or a whole work day. I only use it with headphones attached to my phone but I do not really see much of a reason the battery life should differ by a significant amount if you are using it for a stereo or in the car
~ Videos – There is no audio lag with this device between my pixel 2 xl or my ipad. This is a big deal as I was afraid that without aptX that this was going to be an issue. I am very happy to announce that it is not an issue at all
~ Sound – The sound to me is about 95% of where it would be using a wired connection to the headphone jack. This is really good for bluetooth, especially since this unit does not have aptX. The sound is also louder with this unit than a direct connection. If i have headphones plugged into my ipad directly, the volume will usually be at about 30 – 40 percent depending what I am doing. However with this bluetooth receiver I rarely go above 25% since it is louder at the same device volume level as a wired connection
The Bed;~ Annoying beep – This seems to be something that is common with all bluetooth headphones and adapters I have used, but they give the annoying low battery warning beep way too early, and it is way too frequent. My Anker Soundbuds Surge and this device will start beeping to warn of low battery when the unit gets down to about 30%. It would be ok if it beeped at this point once, and then beeped again at 25% and again at 20% and so on. However, once this beeps at 30%, it will interrupt whatever you are listening to and beep every couple minutes. This is my biggest complain about this unit. If it could beep once at 30% and then once each 5% it drops I would be fine. but since the unit still has about 3 hours of power at 30% for me, it is annoying to have my music or show be interrupted every few minutes with the beeping telling me that the battery is lowPromised Review By MDE
