Home Reviews Peripherals Logitech Bluetooth receiver cuts the cord

Swiss based peripheral maker Logitech has released a Bluetooth wireless audio adaptor that can turn corded headphones, speakers or an amplifier into a Bluetooth device.

To be clear this is a A$49.95 receiver only – it needs to pair with a Bluetooth transmitter like a smartphone, tablet, or notebook.

It has both 3.5mm and RCA left and right audio outputs. You can connect any ‘normal’ speakers, headphones or an amplifier to this.

Pairing is easy – a pushbutton will find any device up to 15 metres away. You can change pairings just as easily.

It comes with a 240V power adaptor and a 3.5mm to RCA cable.

I tested it with a variety of speakers and devices – it did not miss a beat and sound was clear. My only complaint is that it is mains powered, the adaptor is nearly as big as the receiver itself, so that tethers the user to an available power point.

I suspect it will find most use in adding Bluetooth streaming to a home theatre system or amplifier – for me it has breathed life into corded headphones and saved a nice pair of old Sennheisser cans from the tip.
