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.

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.

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?

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 .

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?

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.

Muffled

Great idea but everyone said that I sound muffled when using.

Helmet Wireless Audio w. ADAPT

Helmet Wireless Audio w. ADAPT

Wireless Audio for under $40 (Totally reasonable) ! Works with any plugged or wired audio solutions for the helmet, just make it so you don't need to plug in. Connect to your iphone, samsung, ipod, or whatever via bluetooth straight to your helmet, so nice.

Combo w/ Turtle Shell for BT dominance!

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This item combined with the O.T. Turtle shell means I have more bluetooth muscle than that douchey Hedge Fund manager that is always trying to trade stocks and order coffee at the same time, and the quality is just as good!

I think the coolest feature is that you don't need headphones with a microphone...it's built into the Adapt!

So your favorite pair of headphones that you use for music still are in play for making/taking calls...these are crazy times we're living in friends, enjoy the tunes.
