Simply Brilliant!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a lifesaver, I purchased it for a motorcycle trip I was taking. It gave me the ability to have music playing but without having to fumble with my phone on the bike. The remote works great and the battery seems to last for about 9 hours as stated.

It's also really cool at home to be able to turn any set of speakers into a wireless sound system. An awesome cheap little piece of tech.

Great tech

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The OT Adapt is very easy to set up and simple to use. It paired with my phone seamlessly.

I use mine at work and my wife uses hers to listen to music when we go mountain biking.

I love technology

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great little device. Battery life lasts for a surprising amount of time for how small it is. Range is good as well. I love that I can keep my phone it my picket where it is safe, but still control the music. My only gripe is the weird charging interface. It comes with the cable to charge it, but I wish it charged off of micro USB like everything else.

As an FYI, we ordered two of these. The black one had a proprietary cable, but the blue had a micro USB. I assume they are rolling out micro USB and the older versions are still in stock for the black.

That'll do pig...that'll do...

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Very impressed with this little guy. I needed a solution to add audio to my helmet without wires. I was able to fit this on my helmet with a shorter cable and use my phone to connect...

...it worked like a charm! I could ride, easily, for 8-12 hours at reasonable volume while this little guy drove the larger speakers in my helmet.

I've since used it to connect my home stereo, car stereo, even my ear buds when my phone will be near by, but I don't want the weight, or I'm working in the dusty shed/wood shop.

Been two seasons on this little guy...so they'll definitely do right for you.

Not for gloves

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

The unit works really well if you are not wearing gloves, which I normally do while skiing. Maybe my gloves are too thick but I am partial to warm hands. The unit has four buttons (volume up, down, forward, back) arranged in a circle around the central Multi Function Button (MFB) which is small [5/8" or 15.9mm] and slightly recessed. When attempting to push the MFB with thick gloves, all the buttons get pushed - the phone (iPhone 5s) responds by doing nothing. I wanted it to substitute for getting the phone out of the pocket, taking off the gloves, hoping the phone doesn't get dropped out of the lift chair.... Maybe I can modify it - glue some thickness to the MFB. I am keeping it to see if I can make it work with gloves.
BTW, I got SIRI to work by holding the MFB for two seconds.

Responded on

Update on my review:
I glued a clear cabinet door bumper to the MFB which made it easy to operate while wearing gloves. Clear because under the MFB are the two LEDs that indicate status. I thought I would knock off the glued on cabinet bumper but after 16 days of skiing it still works. The Adapt is clipped to the helmet strap over the earpad and connected to the helmet speakers by a short 3.5mm male-to-male 3 conductor wire.

Responded on

Exactly the same issues - exactly the same fix. Adapt 2.0 should fix the recessed pause/play button - clearly not designed by anybody that tried to use this product in the snow.

Great piece of kit

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This BT adapter is great. I use it on my backpack strap while snowboarding and have it wired into the speakers in my helmet. Allows me to keep my phone dry and safe in my jacket, but still play/pause, change songs, adjust volume etc. This device is well made and a great addition for anyone looking to listen to tunes on the go.

I have a lot of static coming through one ear. It's not the headphones. Is there a way to fix this?

Best Answer Responded on

Could be a few things ... so tough to narrow down. I'd check the contact between the headphones and the BT adaptor. I'd also see if moving the source closer to the BT adaptor does the trick.

My guess though is that your batteries are low on one of the devices. BT audio quality isn't ever really great, and it gets much worse when batteries are low.

This little guy is SO awesome!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Not only does it turn your favorite pair of headphones into wireless ones (I have found all the wireless earbuds don't stay in your ears very well) but it also turns anything with a standard audio cable into a wireless device (like home speakers, etc.) If you have an AUX input in your car, you can even connect it- link it to your phone- and instantly have bluetooth in your car! (It has a microphone built in) It's small and light and perfect for working out, or even for just having an external remote that's accessible.

Responded on

How does it work? I have the same problem that it seems like all earbuds don't really stay in my ears, so are you still using the same (with wires) headphones but cut the wires off or what?

Responded on

The Tech Adapt is basically a Bluetooth converter. The Adapt has the BT and control abilities, and you plug your existing 3.5mm jack wired headphones/buds into this Bluetooth device to prevent the annoying wire from going from your head to your pocket. DO NOT CUT YOUR HEADPHONE WIRES OFF!!!! At the time of my comment I'm looking to turn my wired moto headphones into wireless BT enabled headphones. In the long run I'm looking for a BT device that will sync between my phone for music and 2-way radio communication between at least 4 friends wile riding ATV's while only dimming my music. The technology isn't there yet for a reasonable price, so I'm seriously considering the OT Adapt for wireless BT connectivity with my iphone and existing headphones in my 3/4 moto helmet.

Great alternative

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is a great alternative to buying Bluetooth head phones. It's nice and small about the size of an Apple Shuffle, and works great. I use mine outside with my phone in my pocket and the OTA connected to a set of speakers.

Awesome, but careful of the clip

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I am a skydiver, and use it to listen to music in the plane, just clipped to my collar, phone secured in my pocket. I also use it at the gym, the range is wide and allows me to be connected even when I leave my phone away. Unfortunately the clip is not strong enough to support 125m/h wind... Next time I'll hide it inside my jumpsuit before exiting the plane ;)

Great product

I got this for snowboarding this winter. Once I had it in hand I found way more uses for this bluetooth device than just boarding. It has become my go to for every workout.

Is this device easy to control while wearing ski gloves?

Responded on

Hey Ryan,

The buttons are not the largest and if you are wearing mittens or thicker gloves like a pair of Hestra's then you are probably going to struggle a little. However if you are wearing a pair of park gloves or a pair of thinner gloves then with a little practice you should have no problem using the controls on this .

Responded on

It's not even kind of glove friendly. 5 buttons all about the size of a quarter, and the one you're going to be hunting for - pause/play - is recessed below the other 4. A common fix is to glue a small cabinet bumper onto that button so you can feel it with a glove on.

Great device

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

Small device and so far has lasted me at approx 10 hours on one charge on my jogs. With the coming snowboard season coming up I predict it will last approx 4-5 hours only.
Sound at max level is a bit tinny but is not enough that it sounds horrible. The adapter is smaller then it looks and is rubberized so sweatproof and seems to be good in light rain and snow. So far has not had any issues with this product and highly recommended. Using this to turn my $25 skull candy drop ins to a nice pair of bluetooth speakers for my snowboard helmet. WIll upload a photo when I attach it.
Note for this regarding volume: For androids and assuming IOS make sure the BLUETOOTH volume on the device is set to max, After the actual device can go a bit louder when you raise the volume.

I'm seriously thinking about this for snowboarding....Is this waterproof? Or water resistant? Don't want to take the chance of dumping 40 dollars just to have it short out on me after getting wet?

Try hitting pause/play with a glove on - combine that with the common BT delay and a friend that is telling you which trail he's taking on this run... and then takes off assuming you heard him (b/c you're standing two feet away looking at him)... but you're hopelessly trying to pause the music. This little guy works great for non-glove situations - but nobody thought of snow when they designed this.

WORTH IT

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

pretty awesome little gadget. originally bought it just for snowboarding but have made good use of it elsewhere. could use just a tad more battery life but pretty great to have

Don't leave home without it.

The Adapt is the coolest little piece of technology I currently own. Simply plug in any regular 3.5 mm headphone and using Bluetooth connect the Adapt to your iPhone or computer.

BOOM - Instant Bluetooth Headphones. You can now wear your favorite pair of headphones, and have Bluetooth Capability.

You can skip songs, control volume, and pause/play without having to take your phone of your pack/pocket. There is also a the built-in microphone that allows you to make and receive hands-free calls from anywhere, any time. The battery lasts for 5 to 6 hours of playtime and 150 hours of standby time.

I am seriously considering buying this but I am wondering if I could connect this to a ipod dock and make it bluetooth compatible so I could could use the dock wirelessly, if anybody could let me know that would be great.

Responded on

if the dock has a 3.5 it should work, people use it for the home set-ups, RVs, all kinds of stuff.

I love this. I use with my Skullcansy Navigator headphones. Its awesome to use while working away from my computer. The sounds quality does suffer a little bit but is still on a high level.
