well i bought the x42s when they were on lightning deal the other day so (sigh) guess it doesn't matter anymore
(I have been a very bad boy this holiday - needed to have kept the credit card in the pocket on more than one occasion)
Just a follow up on the Telme2 product. I just received this yesterday and was able to get it set up last night. I was pleased at how easy it was to set up and pair with my BT headphones. I simply plugged the fiber cable into the tv and the telme2 box and plugged the usb cord into my TV's usb port for power, put my BT headphones in pair mode and it picked it up that simple. The sound quality was good. Mind you i don't have high end headphones so i will be able to more accurately test the sound quality when i get my BT speakers. Otherwise, this does exactly what i want.
How is the lag time of the audio compared to the video? Is there a noticeable delay? If not I may end up buying the Tosblue thing.
I just got mine, and my first tests show that there is a little audio lag, enough to be really annoying if you watch lips like I tend to do when watching TV, but not enough to be a big problem for some people who are less sensitive. I find myself pretty picky about sound syncing up.
I'll try it with a different bluetooth receiver before giving up on it though.
I tried both the optical input and the analog input, with no change in the amount of lag, so I'd assume it's on the bluetooth side where the lag is introduced.
I suppose I could measure the difference if needed but with the current bluetooth receiver I'm using the lag is there. (Sony Ericsson MW600)
Still no luck for me with getting the sound synced up using the tosblue.
I have Phonak hearing aids. They have a Bluetooth gadget that receives audio via BT and transmits it to the hearing aids. I use it a lot with TV. The sending unit plugs into the TV audio output pair of RCA plugs. Here is the problem. The new TV, to be delivered soon, only has one pair of RCA audio output plugs and they will be used to drive the sound bar. Can I just use a simple Y cable splitter to connect two items to the single pair of outputs?
Possibly. But can you drive the soundbar with HDMI out or optical out from the TV? That would be a better solution.

NOTE: I am fixing photo links in my theater thread - if you find dead photo links elsewhere, please PM me and I will fix it.
NOTE: Because the headset makes use of aptx technology you need to make sure the Bluetooth you are trying to connect to has that protocol available if you want to use it with other Bluetooth transmitters.
The manufacturer is located in Norway but they provide free(?) DHL International shipping for the package.
I just purchased the TosLink to Bluetooth Converter from TelMe2. It is a package of their TosLinkII transmitter and their APTX Headset. The sound quality is fantastic
Hi. Have you connected it to a TV and tested the audio lag?
Some of the Telme2 users reported a lag. That issue has been fixed. The company is coming out with more excellent Bluetooth ideas. Definitely watch them for news.
I received my Telme2 headset last week and am thrilled with it. A big thing I notice is it hooks up readily without having to restart the computer or go to the control panel to revamp settings.
I will be testing the TosBlue X unit with TV next, but wanted to hop in on this thread to say, check http://telme2.com for advanced design and excellent quality.
Any questions, post here, and I will do my best to get a straight answer for you.
Disclaimer: I will be writing some articles for the company. I'm telling you, though, I would be saying this whether I had any relationship with them or not. Seems to be an excellent team, dedicated to excellent customer service and producing the best gear. Go Bluetooth and leave the cords behind, that's my motto.
With this BT transmitter, I like the fact that I can simply pick out whatever BT headphones I want...and the whole setup, including the transmitter, comes in at a very reasonable price.
Would love to hear some feedback from someone who has used an aptx set of cans with this BT transmitter and can comment on the sound quality, as compared to any other cordless headphones they've used.
Hello, I've found telme2 TOSBLUE-X as only device which fits my needs and had purchased it. just want to share my experience and ask other owners if they had similar problems
I have Samsung Smart TV UE46F6510 with toslink output. When I tried first to pair Tosblue device with my Sony DR-BTN200 headset it did not pair. It was flashing with blue/red LED constantly. After a bunch if tries I was close to give up and send device back. Then I tried to pair the device powered from laptop and - miracle - it paired in a second. And it was streaming sound from laptop (sourced from 3.5 audio) perfectly. The only difference was - it was powered from laptop USB and TV at that time was switched off.
My understanding of situation - Samsung TV uses Bluetooth AV Profile (proprietary called Soundshare). Tosblue tries to pair with it when turned on by USB power from TV. As it is close to TV Bluetooth the strength of TV Bluetooth signal prevents looking for other pair signals.
As confirmation of this - when I first turn on Tosblue and Headset, make sure they are connected and then turn on TV - everything is working fine.
But it is really not scenario I wanted. I need just turn headset on and get sound.
Can anybody who owns this Tosblue device say what model of TV they have connected it to and if they can discover by computer during pairing headsets any Bluetooth devices? Any similar issues with pairing you had?
I tried to contact telme2. their contact/support email firstname.lastname@example.org seems not monitored everyday, but I've got short feedback with promise to answer my questions. Hope I will get some help and will not need send promising device back
I've also been looking for a solution to connect a pair bluetooth headset wirelessly to my samsung F8000 TV. I haven't received the headset as yet hopefully by Tuesday from Amazon - Bluedio- r+ Legend which is suppose to have AptX. At the time of ordering the headset it didn't cross my mind that I wouldn't be able to connect the headset directly to the TVvia bluetooth, I thought that it would obviously be able to connect out the box....Oops !
Has the Tosblue-X solution been the best one to-date ?
Has anyone managed to get the wireless audio connection to work flawlessly and by what method if so ?
I was discussing my issue with Telme2 support. unfortunately they could not give any workable advise to me.
Seems they haven't met this situation before so I had to troubleshoot it myself.
Finally I was able to find the way how it will work. Trying different scenarios I found the position of device where it started to work. When you place Tosblue on top of the TV (in this case Samsung UE32D6100SW) , make it top part with LED indicator and logo visible , then it seems start to work. if it simply is hanging behind TV or antenna look not to a headset then you will have troubles with connection. Once paired with my headset it continue to connect on headset turning on, varying 2-15 seconds in connection time, not immediately.
Sound quality is quite good, but time to time I hear some sporadic low volume noise sound. It's noticeable in sound pauses. it's definitely connection with Tosblue, as I haven't heard any kind of this noise when connecting headset to other smartphones or PC.
In the end I leave this device with me, even I'm not 100% satisfied with easiness of connection and sound quality. Unfortunately there is no similar device on the market which fully satisfy my requirements and a bit expensive. I think in the nearest future we will see headsets that directly connect to TV on Bluetooth or TV manufacturers will provide their proprietary headsets (for example Samsung may make Soundhare headsets). If you cannot wait you can try, but make sure you can easily return this device
So on the whole how much on of 10 would you give it for sound quality?

Well that didn't work !!!! It was unable to pair with my Bluedio R+ headset but paired fine with my phone which is not what I want it for. I'm thinking about getting the Logitech wireless speaker adapter but I really didn't want to use a device that needed to be plugged into the mains and as for the Tosblue - X that's seem like they only sell it in America and I'd rather find something in the UK.
I would say 8 of 10. only because of some noise in pauses or silence.
I sympathize Tosblue-X as it:
- has USB power
-Has optical toslink. at least my TV has no audio line output which manage the volume separately from TV Speakers. Other thing as SCART require more cables and produce sound only from TV tuner, not a TV's media player.
- has slim design and can be mounted on back of TV which hangs on the wall.
I was looking for it on ebay and amazon also and no luck. they sell it only from their site. Had to wait about two weeks for delivery
