Save Your Headphones & Save Money!
Posted 3 Mar • Buying Guide
If you have some favourite wired headphones that have been made redundant, since the 3.5mm headphone jack is no longer used for new phones, you are not alone.
Perhaps you invested quite heavily into a pair that you loved and surpassed all your expectations on the sound quality front, just to find you can no longer use them with your latest phone upgrade.
We understand..... And we feel your pain!
But - we have a solution… Why not turn them Bluetooth?
Save your headphones and save yourself the unnecessary expense of having to invest in another set of decent headphones.
You don’t have to compromise on sound quality, or your wallet!
Sounds great, but how can I do that?
Simple. You need a Bluetooth adapter to make them wireless.
More specifically, a Bluetooth receiver, which allows you to send audio from a Bluetooth enabled device, such as your smartphone, tablet or laptop, wirelessly to your wired headphones.
Sounds too good to be true?
We promise you it isn’t ;)
So what are the options to make my wired headphones Bluetooth?
There are several types of Bluetooth receivers, but for headphones you will need an AUX Bluetooth receiver. This is a receiver that has a 3.5mm AUX connection for the headphone cable to connect to.
Simply plug the headphones into the Bluetooth receiver, pair with your smartphone, tablet or laptop and start playing music. The process will take around a minute and will cost a fraction of the price of investing in a new set.
We have 3 different Bluetooth AUX receivers that will turn headphones Bluetooth.

Not Just For Headphones...
Any of these Bluetooth AUX receivers can turn ANY pair of wired headphones (with a 3.5mm headphone jack) Bluetooth! Ideal for your favourite pair that you were never able to find a good enough replacement for. Or an old pair of Apple headphones that are great, but you can no longer connect to an iPhone.
Not only this, but each of these AUX receivers have multiple uses, so you won’t be restricted to just using them for your headphones.
You can also use them to turn your home stereo, docking station or HiFi Bluetooth and they can be used in the Car to turn an older car stereo Bluetooth. The RX-TX can even be used to turn your iPod or TV Bluetooth.
