Bluetake Bluetooth EDR USB Adapter (BT007Ex) Review
(Page 1 of 5 )
The Bluetake headset sounded great yesterday, though I only connected it to a phone and an MP3 player. The Bluetake Bluetooth EDR USB Adapter (BT007Ex) will create a Bluetooth connection for your computer to connect to the headset too. This USB transmitter will both beam music to your headset and also transfer your voice back to the computer for chat programs or recorders.
Bluetake showed us their innovation and foresight in yesterday’s review of the Bluetooth Headset (BT450Rx) and the iPod transmitter. Today’s tests will include the same headset, this time working with the Bluetake USB Adapter (BT007Ex). To see more details on the headset, please read the article from yesterday or visit Bluetake’s website. I am mostly going to focus on the USB adapter today. There are other kinds of Bluetooth hardware you can connect it to as well, like keyboards and mice.
Here’s the BT007Ex and its packaging. It comes with a quick start guide and a CD which includes drivers, bluetooth software, and an English user manual. The box, like yesterday's BT450Rx-C box, has a lot of information on it, and Bluetake added their contact information to it. They included phone numbers and emails for all their offices, which is a great thing for people who want to ask questions before buying or want to quickly ask a troubleshooting question after they have opened it.
Here are the other details you might be interested in.
