Need DAP With Bluetooth and Bluetooth Headphones That Will Work At 30-35 Feet
As a result of two serious knee surgeries over the past two years, my current, and long term conditioning is pretty much limited to walking in a pool at my health club. I do this five days a week, for an hour at a time, and need some music or I'm going to be literally bored to death.
I am looking for a good sounding DAP (Digital Audio Player) that offers Bluetooth and a good pair of Bluetooth headphones to pair with it. While I am walking in the pool, I will place the audio player on a chair at the side of the pool, in the middle of the area where I am walking laps. What is available that will provide me with seamless Bluetooth audio transmission as I walk back and forth up to a max distance of 30-40 feet from the player?
Thanks very much for any help with this. I thought it was going to be relatively easy to identify what was needed until I read several reviews of headphones that only connected to players at 15 feet, and some players that didn't even manage that. Per the Bluetooth standards I've researched, in an open area, with a clear line of sight between the player and the headphones, 15 meters/45 feet should be expected but apparently either some manufacturers are not doing what is necessary to make that possible, or the standards are not accurate for the real world?
