TaoTronics Bluetooth Receiver Review

For a Bluetooth receiver which doesn’t come from as famous a brand as, let’s say, Mpow, the TaoTronics Bluetooth receiver is one of the most popular ones on Amazon.

So, what are the reasons for its popularity? Let’s find out.


First thing first, the usage of Bluetooth 4.2 gives this receiver a head start over all its competitors. Since Bluetooth has a direct bearing on a device’s battery consumption, Bluetooth 4.2, thanks to its smart connectivity, is known for better managing power not only of the host but also the client device.

In other words, thanks to Bluetooth 4.2, both the TaoTronics as well as your smartphone would consume less battery due to the bespoke power plan which comes built-in inside each Bluetooth 4.2 device.

While brilliant sound quality is a given with Bluetooth 4.2, TaoTronics have also taken efforts to improve your hands-free calling experience with this receiver.

And guess what, you don’t have to charge the receiver for eternity for it to deliver a 10-hour playback time. Instead, a mere one-and-a-half hour of charging would do the job.

A handy option which this device provides is the freedom it gives you to connect two devices at one time. In this way, if you have two passengers who want to stream music from their devices, both of them could take turns without having to connect/disconnect their devices.
