Ok, well got the adapter today, not exactly what I was expecting, but as there is just not much good info on the web on this unit, or any other bluetooth cassette unit for that matter, the only way I could test it out was to buy it. It pairs with my BB with a handsfree headset profile, the same as if it was a bluetooth earpiece. I was hoping it would do it as A2DP, but it did not. I tested it out playing music using the Mobiola X Player as it was the only way I could get any audio to stream to the bluetooth, and it sounded awful, muddy, and muffled. And if the phone moved very far out of sight of the unit, it crackled and popped a lot!
I then tried calling my phone while it was attached, and found that it had a little microphone on the end of it, and it actually sounded ok as a speakerphone. The person on the other end heard an echo of themselves unfortunately, but they could hear the person(s) speaking to them ok. So, not quite sure what to think. I like the idea of keeping it for speakerphone duties, but it doesn't do the music like I was expecting, which is what I bought it for to begin with. Not sure if I want to keep it or send it back. It would cost me shipping, and a restocking fee to send it back, almost half of what it cost me to get it in the first place, so maybe it's not a good idea to send it back. I'll have to think about it, unless someone else wants it? Let me know and I'll think about it.
