I am searching for a good bluetooth transmitter that works with my Sony WH-CH700N (bluetooth 4.1). I want to have the least latency possible, that's most important to me. If anyone has any advice/recommendations, that would be really helpful!
 
I've been getting a lot of different reactions from people. Talking about codecs and apTx LL. I don't really know anything about this. I know both advices need to support the same thing to work optimal.
I've been looking at the taotronics bluetooth 5.0 transmitter from Amazon, which seems good to me. I currently have a 4.2 bluetooth cheap transmitter from china, and the latency is pretty noticeable, the battery isn't great either. I want to use the transmitter to watch movies, series, youtube.

    You list your headphones but not the other devices you are looking to connect. Are you trying to connect a computer ,tablet ,phone, television? Some additional details would help.

    Thanks for replying, my fault, I should've had put this in the first post. The transmitter is/will only be connected to my LG monitor (LG-27uk600). This is the only device I will use for the transmitter.

    Hmmm strange. Went to check out the manual to see what Bluetooth level the tv supports and there is none listed in the manual.  Has this worked in the past ?

    Took a look at the transmitter you mentioned and it looks like it may do the trick. I never had the need for an external transmitter. The only things I would suggest is to get one that is going to suit your needs. Do you want one that plugs into a power source or one that have need to keep charging. For me I'm at a toss up with my Bluetooth headphones. When gaming I can get maybe 2+ days then they need to be charged again. I may invest into some corded ones when on a major raid run. I hate it when they cut out in the middle.

    The LG monitor itself doesn't have Bluetooth. That's why I have a bluetooth transmitter, it just plugs in the aux with a 3.5mm jack. The really cheap one that I'm using right now works. The latency is just pretty bad, really annoying when watching since video and audio are out of sync.

    My current transmitter has to be charged, playtime is 5 hours and is pretty low quality. To me I't doesn't really matter whether it has te be charged or plugged into power.

    I just want to upgrade my current one. According to other people I asked getting a higher quality one will already improve on the latency. Others say I won't and it all comes down to the codecs. Do you have any knowledge about this? And if there are any higher quality transmitters that are compatible with the Sony wh-ch700n which will give me better audio/videos synchronization?

    The distance doesn't really matter, I'll be sitting pretty close. The taotronics' 10 hour battery is much better than my current one too, this one is also the cheapest high quality one I could find. I've seen some avantree transmitters too, which I only hear good things about. But I just dont know how and if the latency will improve.

    Thanks

    As far as I understand, the codecs come into play depending on the quality of the picture. Standard def tv (4:3 ratio  480i) may have no latency where as 1080P / 4K and things like Dolby 5.1 / surround sound may contribute to the latency as well. A lot more info being transmitted.

    You may want to spend a bit more, get something like this one on Amazon.  It may last you longer if you do not plan on upgrading your television.

    Okay, thanks for the recommendation. I see it supports apTx HD, which my headphones support as well. So I guess that would improve the sound quality, if this works in transmitter mode.

    Do you think this one will get me less latency as well?
    And you think it will last me longer if I don't change from TV, because my current one doesn't have bluetooth itself? I won't be changing TV's for a while. 

    What other specs does this product that you recommended to me have that will benefit me/and the headphones? Thanks for the help and info so far!

    I also thought there would be more headphones supporting bluetooth 5.0. Especially the high end headphones that are on the market right now as the sony 1000xm3 and bose 35. Is the technology for this just not that far or ready? Or are there more 5.0 headphones that I don't know of?

    we cant seem to keep up with some technology.. They now have some 8K televisions, very pricey,  yet many over air and cable networks still are not even broadcasting their programming in 4K.. So do let the 5.0 Bluetooth be a sticking point. There are a lot of device using older versions just fine.

    Does your TV have a control for adjusting video/audio sync? If so, that might be all you need to do.

    I haven't looked into that at all actually. Is that a thing? Nobody else has suggested this so far. But I don't think  my monitor (LG-27uk600) has something like this. I would have to take a look later.

    You can go through the user manual of your LG monitor. Which is actually included with your product box.
