Mpow Bluetooth Receiver drops to $12

If you need to bluetoothize (verb) your headphones or anything else that can play music from a 3.5mm input, the well-reviewed (4.3 out of 5 with 2660+ reviews and 300+ questions answered) Mpow Bluetooth Receiver is now down to $12 in new condition at amazon.com. Manufacturers rarely describe this clearly, but you can read the reviews and Q&A for more details.

Receiver is the key word here, it “receives” music from a bluetooth source (eg smartphone or tablet). The opposite is a Transmitter, which “transmits” music (eg from a 3.5mm playback source) to a bluetooth receiver (eg this device or bluetooth headphones or bluetooth-enabled speakers).

Using both a bluetooth receiver and a transmitter, you can take any two analog devices, eg your tape cassette player and your wired headphones and turn them into a bluetooth set. However, keep in mind that there is audio degradation with bluetooth, and more so when you combine them, so this may be best for audiobooks or spoken word or non-musical audio or background music while doing household chores that wouldn’t let you critically enjoy music anyway.

Start Wedn 10pm ET: Mpow Streambot Bluetooth Audio Receiver Sale

Wednesday has something of potential interest in the schedule of the Gold Box at Amazon. It will start late on Wednesday, at 10pm Eastern (7pm pacific). It will be the Mpow Streambot Box with Bluetooth 4.0 and apt-X and NFC support. It gives you a Bluetooth receiver which you can use any which way you like. The most common use of these is to let existing non-Bluetooth speakers or headphones receive audio over bluetooth. The price before the sale is $25. It averages 4.3 out of 5 based on 90+ customer reviews, and if you are curious about it, it has 30 questions peer-answered over there.

Basically, one way to use it is this: plug this into your existing RCA-input or 3.5mm input speakers. Pair this (“this” being the Mpow Bluetooth critter in this deal) with your smartphone or tablet, play music on your phone/tablet, and hear it through your speakers. If you are planning to pair it with multiple devices, NFC is really handy because you don’t have to worry about various devices “fighting” over the bluetooth connection.
