Celleden Universal Stereo Dongle
With so few media players out there that come with built-in Bluetooth, it’s often clumsy or difficult to get your music playing where you want it. The solution more often than not, involves messy tangled cables on top of messy tangled cables.
Fortunately, there’s a thing called Bluetooth that has been around for a while now, and whilst it’s mostly used for basic file transfer and handsfree earpieces, there are some who want to push music through it.
The Celleden Universal Stereo Dongle uses a little-known feature of Bluetooth called A2DP. This standard is supported by the Celleden dongle and will allow it to transmit audio in full stereo quality. A major difference when compared to a mono sound source.
To get this device setup, all you have to do is plug the jack in to any other 3.5 mm audio source and pair it up with your Bluetooth-enabled speakers or headphones.
You can also connect to your computer via a USB cable so that it can work as a standard USB dongle for file transfer or audio broadcast. Providing you’ve got or plan to get a Bluetooth-enabled speaker system, this could prove to be a pretty cool setup.
Inside is a lithium-ion battery which charges over USB which can power the Bluetooth device for anything from 2.5 to 3 hours. Operating times do vary sometimes depending on the device you’re using (e.g music or data streaming), distance from the device and any interfering signals.
To sum up, the Celleden Universal Stereo Dongle is the super-duper Bluetooth device you’ve been looking for with its 3-in-1 functionality. It can convert media devices like the iPod to wireless audio streamers as well as allow you to transmit and receive data from your mobile phone.
