Any special trick to get Bose AE2w headphones to pair up with the TosBlue-X transmitter?  I have tried several times with no success.  iPhone doesn't see it nor does my laptop when I have plugged it into my laptop and turned on Bluetooth.  However, both see the headphones.

Got it to work.  Had to go somewhere that minimal chance of there being another Bluetooth signal nearby, a nature park not far from the apartment complex where I live.  With my laptop as the input device, both paired up almost immediately.

Clear previous pairs by holding down the [volume down] and [top button] at the same time until the purple LED lights up on the AE2w headphones. Turn AE2w headphones off then back on. Cycle the power to the TosBlue-X transmitter to start pairing. Press [volume up] and [top button] at the same time until purple LED lights up to make AE2w headphones available for pairing.

Should be able to pair two devices with the AE2w headphones at a time. My cell phone takes priority and the TV comes back in when phone call is not active.

Is it just me?  Am I the only one that is a bit confused??

 

What would be the purpose of converting such a wonderful audio output source to an analog signal?  I'm unclear why I would want to take a perfectly good 5.1 signal and turn it into stereo?  There are several good 5.1 and even 7.1 Bluetooth headsets that want that pure 5.1 optical signal!

 

Please...help me understand?

 

As well, I never read anyone explaining the issue about most TV's having only 1 Optical output, so for most of us with a Surround System already in place that us occupying that SPDIF optical output, where are we supposed to plug in this adapter Transmitter? I was really wondering why not a single post was addressing this.

 

Just some food for thought....

 

Thanks!

If you have only two speakers (left and right), you can't stream 5.1 audio. 5.1 means 5 different channels over 5 different speakers and 1 channel of a subwoofer signal. It has nothing to do with the clarity or purity of the sound. It's just that each speaker outputs the designated signals to its channel. When you have 2 speakers you can only hear things in stereo, coming from left and/or right speakers.

 

This adapter does not solve your problem. My TV has the same optical output and I need to take that optical output, connect to a device that accepts optical-in and converts the audio to a bluetooth stream. This bluetooth adapter should be able to stream to at least bluetooth headsets. I only watch movies with my wife after the kids sleep. And I need a good volume to able to enjoy the movie. So, we need:

 

A bluetooth audio streaming device that accepts optical-in audio and that can be paired with more than 2 bluetooth headsets.

similar problem - different use

I need to conect to my cable company's TV set top box instead of the earlier threads on just connecting to a TV. The only output connections are RCA & optical S/PDIF. Both connections are being used & I don't want to give them up. The stereo connects wirelessly to my headset & the digital powers the A/V receiver in Dolby Digital (that I also don't want to give up). And, I only have AC 120 volts for power, no USB.

What I want to do is add another connection, a Bluetooth connection that transmits.

Also, I don't need APTX sound quality because the equipment that support my hearing aids don't have that feature (I mean, if anyone should be supporting quality sound, it should be the hearing aid manufacturers).
