A Bluetooth transmitter for those who may not know what it does or why you need one is a device that allows you to transmit sound from a device that doesn’t support Bluetooth to a receiver that does. Havit makes an excellent one with this Havit Bluetooth 4.1 Transmitter but it is also a receiver able to receive signal from a Bluetooth device and transmit that audio through it’s optical out or Aux out as well. It cannot function as both a transmitter and receiver at the same time, but you wouldn’t want it to.
Havit Bluetooth 4.1 Transmitter and Receiver Unboxing
As you can see the device is a square with rounded corners, all of the inputs are in the back with the switches on the side. You have to switch it to use Optical audio or Aux audio it cannot do both at the same time, but the device functions very well for helping get your non-Bluetooth device audio to your Bluetooth headset or speakers. Where this product was found to be most valuable is if you want to use a pair of nice high quality Bluetooth headphones and watch TV in the bedroom next to your partner who is sleeping. You simply plug your TV Optical Audio or AUX out into the Havit Transmitter, then pair it with the headphones and you alone can hear what you are watching without disturbing your partner next to you.
This also works if you want your sound closer, like if your TV is far away from you and you want to have your speaker right next to you for some reason. I tested this with the PlayStation 4 in the below video where I beamed my PS4 sound to my PinShow speaker via the Havit Bluetooth 4.1 Transmitter. This is also the final video review of the product.
Overall this product worked very well except some initial pairing took a few attempts for the Bluetooth speaker to connect but just powering it off and on twice and it eventually sync’d up just fine. I would give the Havit Bluetooth Transmitter and Receiver 4 stars.
