Jabra A125s Bluetooth Transmitter Review

Transmit music wirelessly from your iPod or iPhone!

This small device (1"3/4 X 1"X .5") and 22grams, is pretty simple to use. It has a dock connector for the iPod, a charging socket (mini USB charging cable included), and a multi-function button (MFB) with a light indicator (LED).

Very simple. Once the device is fully charged (6 hours), press and hold the MFB until the LED is solid blue, connect it to your iPod, put your audio device in pairing mode, and the connection will occur within 10 sec to 30 sec. To pause or resume a song press briefly (tap) on the MFB. To turn off the unit press a little longer.

I actually paired the Jabra 125s with a Parrot Boombox, and I must say that the sound quality was very good. Same with a Parrot Party and a Anycom BSH-100 Bluetooth Stereo Heaset.
The wireless range is around 30 ft as claimed by the manufacturer . We have been using this unit for our demos in the store and have never run the battery out !

Bottom line: This device delivers. It's extremely simple to use and does what it is supposed to do: make your iPod wireless! Also great news for the iPhone owners frustated by the lack of Bluetooth stereo capability, the Jabra A125s will provide you the missing A2DP profile (even though the iPhone will tell the unit is not compatible!).

Area of concerns: none.



Easy to use

Works with an iPhone

Could be a little slimmer
