Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitters

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone has a 5.0 bluetooth transmitter that they've paired with the Nox to see if it is actually APTX LL or not.  I have 3 models of the Taotronics TT-Ba07, 08 and 09, none give the + sign when paired to the machine. I'm not trying to use it with the Nox, but another machine. My Q-12 earbuds when paired have the + sign. I need a transmitter to use with the Q-12's for minimum lag.  Any input or suggestions would be bigly appreciated.

The BT 4 2 version of both these APTX LL transmitters pair up with my BT APTX LL headphones and I have used both of them successfully in LL mode with my GPX.  I use the same headphones (Miccus SR-71's) with my Equinox and GPX.  I have not tried to verify by pairing with my Equinox, but I pretty much know by ear whether I am LL or not.  Definitely LL with these. I see they are now BT 5.0 but still designated APTX LL so they should show check mark when paired as a receiver to the EQX.  Dunno why they don't.  FWIW.

Well, I'd be interested if you put them in receive mode and paired to the Nox if the + symbol would display. I have the same Taotronic 5.0, but, no symbol for APTX LL  on the Nox.  My goal is to reduce lag as much as is possible if you know what I mean.

Ok, riddle solved, they will transmit APTX LL, but, will not receive on that level. That explains the missing symbol.

I am still going to test the 4.2 units in receive mode with the EQX because I always thought I could use them as a compact LL alternative receiver instead of the WM08 which is a tad bulkier (my idea was to attach them to an NDT GG headset using a short patch cord as a self-contained home-brew converted wireless headset).  Sounds like that may not be an option.  I'll report back to verify whether the 4.2 units are behaving differently than the 5.0 units in receive mode.

That was something that I also considered in case my WM 08 went belly-up.. It would be a very affordable alternative for someone that had a 600 as well. I'll be interested in your results.

I'll report back but it may be a few days before I have an opportunity to run the test on my units.

I ordered this (https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01B4W40VC/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_i_HyqhEbFYDR1FS ) back in December, and it works as a receiver and transmitter. My son used it on a Teknetics G2 with the Minelab headphones that came with the 800. Paired up well with no noticable lag. In fact, he found his first gold ring ever using it. He never liked having wires in the way and found the Bluetooth connection to be far better. FWIW, he was digging the lower signals in the pulltab and nickel range as instructed; he got paid for listening well. I was so happy that he found it and not me. Nothing like finding that first gold ring!

Good job on being a good teacher and congrats to your son for listening to dad. Sometimes we do know what we're talking about 😉

Managed to run this test, finally.  Unfortunately my results with the BT 4.1 version units duplicated yours.  For some unfathomable reason, the units do not receive in APTX LL mode even though they transmit in APTX LL mode.  So much for these little guys being a poor man's substitute for the WM08.  This despite the following statement in the product description:

APTX & APTX LOW LATENCY. Powered by premium CSR8670 chipset, TROND BT-DUO supports aptX & aptX Low Latency in both TX and RX mode. You can watch movies while listening to wireless audio in a synchronized fashion and without any noticeable audio delay.

SMH.

      Hi All,
      I am a newbie and purchased a Garrett AT Max. I am having trouble pairing the MS-3 Z-Lynk Headphones to the AT Max. Am I missing something? Manual says push the 2 buttons with headphones on. Did this like 50 times.

      Just got a set of these shipped in 3 days from Hungary.  Perfect impedance match for the N/M detectors--incredible sound.  Very clean and sharp --brings my accuracy up a lot.  They are so loud they need to be run at 8.  I worked with the manufaturer to improve his strain relief system (see the Heyco)--very nice set of phones for these machines.

      Looking for some affordable recommendations for water proof headphones. Mainly want them for the days when it is raining out.

      On occasion, when connecting my Equinox to wireless headphones (either Minelab or SoundPeats), my machine will run the 15 second search with the WI-stream and then stops searching.  The Bluetooth symbol does not appear.  It just runs using the external speaker.   Today, I was going to record this problem before sending it in for repair.  Of course it is now working.  So could it be possibly a problem with being on the beach?  There is much more EMI where I am staying.
