SX-930 bluetooth audio dongle

It’s always appealing not to have to be all wired up to listen to music. I can’t count the number of times I’ve gotten up from my desk only to have the headphones snap back to the computer or my MP3 player fall.

Bluetooth is preferable in range and clarity to the alternatives, but not all audio devices are equipped with bluetooth.

The solution? I thought a bluetooth audio transmitter that connects by 3.5mm audio jack to any standard headphone socket would do the trick. I managed to find a few options on DealExtreme and decided to go with the SX-930. Given it’s US$20.99 pricetag, I decided it was a low-risk trial.

The dongle arrived this week and I’ve been trying it out for the last three days.

The result has been much better than I expected. The dongle was easy to pair with both my Nokia BH-503 and the generic  audio receiver I also bought off DealExtreme. The sound quality was great with both receivers.

This particular dongle has built in battery, rechargeable through USB. A few hours charging lasted a couple of days. Despite the low price-point the build quality feels good and it’s a nice wee device.

Given this experiment worked a treat, I’m game to get at least another with my next DealExtreme order which means I can have one for home and one for the mobile office.
