Bluetooth audio transceivers allow transmission and reception of audio files between various types of media players and audio devices. Such transceivers are compact and can be easily carried around everywhere. In the transmission mode, the Bluetooth audio transceiver needs to be connected to media player with the use of an auxiliary, audio/video or USB cable. When paired with Bluetooth headsets or earphones, audio output of the media player gets seamlessly transmitted to paired audio devices. Thereby, users can connect various types of electronics such as TVs, home entertainment systems and other media players to their Bluetooth headsets and earphones. In the receiving mode, Bluetooth audio transceiver can be connected to any wired headphones with the use of regular 3.5 mm audio jack. The transceiver can then connect with numerous Bluetooth enabled devices such as smartphones, music players and other media players. The receiving mode enables users to enjoy a wireless experience without the need to buy a separate Bluetooth headset. In addition, users can make use of two transceivers to build wireless connection between any two non-Bluetooth devices.

One of the major factors driving the demand for Bluetooth audio transceivers is the release of some of the latest flagship phones without a 3.5 mm audio jack. Leading manufacturers in the smartphone industry have removed the traditional 3.5 mm audio jack for various design and product development purposes. For instance, in September 2016, Apple, Inc. released its iPhone 7 which did not incorporate the universal 3.5 audio jack. The phone makes use of its Lighting technology, Apple’s proprietary computer bus and power connector, for connecting headphones. Similarly, Google, Inc. launched its flagship smartphone Pixel 2, in October 2017, which makes use of the USB-C audio port instead of the traditional audio jack. Furthermore, there are numerous other smartphone brands such as Motorola and HTC, among others which have adopted a similar strategy. Despite these companies offering wired adapters to connect traditional headphones, users find it inconvenient to make use of such additional connectors.

Bluetooth audio transceivers have offered a viable solution for end-users to continue making use of their traditional headphones and headsets on their electronic devices. Furthermore, with the use of such adapters, users are able to enjoy a wireless experience while using their existing wired headphones. In addition, this has enabled users to use their high-end expensive audio devices which have the traditional 3.5 mm audio jack. Some of the other factors driving the popularity of such adapter is the introduction of advanced technologies such as Bluetooth 5.0 and aptX. Thereby, users can choose from a wide array of Bluetooth audio transceivers which offer optimum audio quality in both transmitting and receiving modes.
