Bluetooth transmitters are designed to work with older, or non-Bluetooth enabled audio systems to make them compatible with Bluetooth devices. For example, you can use a Bluetooth transmitter to send sound from your TV to a set of wireless headphones, or from your stereo system to Bluetooth speakers. Some car Bluetooth transmitters come with hands-free calling capabilities. Here are some of the best Bluetooth transmitters we rounded up.

Before you buy

We recommend the Avantree aptX HD Bluetooth transmitter if you're looking to connect devices to a television or audio equipment in your home. It has a decent range, voice control, and lets you connect multiple devices, like headphones, at the same time. The Anker 2-in-1 is also designed for home use but is more compact.

For the car, we suggest the Nulaxy Car Kit Transmitter. It allows for both hands-free calling and playing music from your car's stereo through your Bluetooth enabled devices.
