'ZDNET Recommends': What exactly does it mean?
ZDNET's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.
When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNET nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.
ZDNET's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.

With so many different types of electronic devices these days, it may feel impossible to use them together. Playing music from your phone on your car speakers or connecting your favorite headphones to your big screen TV isn't always so straightforward, but no need to despair!
With this Two-in-One Bluetooth 5.0 Transmitter and Receiver, you can stream music from your phone or computer to non-Bluetooth devices or connect Bluetooth devices to TVs, projectors, and more. This adapter lets you enjoy superior audio practically anywhere in your home, and it's on sale for $25.99.
This dual-mode Bluetooth adapter offers 33 feet of range, allowing you to transmit and receive high-fidelity audio at distance, even while it's charging. The device takes about two hours to charge completely, and it will deliver up to 10 hours of runtime. Plus, it weighs under three ounces, so it's easy to carry anywhere you might need to play music, whether at a picnic or pool party.
Supporting SBC and aptX codecs, this adapter can deliver a sustained wireless audio streaming experience in TX mode. Sync it with a high-fidelity audio source such as your computer, laptop, TV, or projector, and you can stream audio straight to your Bluetooth headphones or speakers without delays.
RX mode works the opposite way. With this adapter, you can add Bluetooth functionality to a wide range of non-Bluetooth audio devices, such as HiFi headphones, amplifiers, subwoofers, car speakers, and more. Transmit the signal from your phone to the adapter, which will then send the audio to your devices. Plus, you can pair the Bluetooth adapter with two devices simultaneously in both modes.
