Kitsound MyJack - convert any Aux port to Bluetooth £10 Sainsbury's online and £15 in-store

Found 30th May 2016
Price updated: now dropped down to £10 online. Still £15 in-store.

Edit: also available from Robert Dyas at £14.99 RobertDyas - thanks to https://www.hotukdeals.com/tag/profile/nguaddar for the find.

First post - please be kind :-D

The KitSound MyJack opens up a world of musical possibilities, enabling you to connect your Bluetooth enabled device to your car radio, or any speaker or hi-fi with a line input.

MyJack replaces your inconvenient aux-in cable. You could not ask for anything simpler: just plug in, sync with your device through the latest version of Bluetooth, and go. You can even connect two devices to the MyJack at the same time, so you and your friends can mix up the playlist.

Once your MyJack is fully charged and paired to your device, you don’t need anything else – just pop it into the aux port, and hit play. You don’t need any other cables, any downloads, or any technical knowledge. The small and compact design means you can keep your car neat and tidy, and with excellent voice detection, you can even use it to take calls as you drive.

* It is the only one I've seen in such a bullet-like design.
* I see that the maximum playtime is 5hrs, which may not work for everyone.
* For £25 on Amazon, £18 on the manufacturer's website.
* Disclaimer: Not used it myself as my car has built-in bluetooth streaming.

My research reveals that all bluetooth transmitters / receivers need charging. I suspect it could be kept plugged into some USB port or a power bank.

Was hoping this would work the other way - i.e. convert a headphone jack into a Bluetooth transmitter for sending audio to wireless headphones.

Hi PaulLFC - For that, I use the aukey bluetooth transmitter. I've plugged it into the TV and can watch late night TV with audio over bluetooth headphones without being a nuisance to anyone. Here is the amazon link
Nice idea but km sure this could be cheaper

Yep, you could use a USB car charger.

​How could it possibly work without any electrical charge?

Late night TV eh we know what that means!
This worth £15 as opposed to £1 for an aux cable?
I went for a slightly less elegant (but cheaper) solution, one of these;

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/272041631799

It will be wired into the head unit directly (power and aux in), then hidden in the dash. Obviously it's a very different approach for the same solution, but suits my need better. The main thing is the direct 12 volt power, no need for charging or even a USB connection (yes, my car is that old!!).

Hahah! That made me laugh out loud

Good point Jemma. I'd say that it depends on where the aux port is. If it's hidden in the glove compartment or centre storage console, it's no hindrance. But some of my friends have the aux port on the dash / in-car entertainment system. To them, It looks unkempt having a cable hanging in plain view all the time

Sounds like a nifty setup!
I have one for less than half this price from Techtronics that lasts as long if not longer plus has buttons on it to play/pause/rewind/forward

These are a great device for those of us who don't have in built bluetooth but I don't think its worth £15

I have to agree that there are more affordable models available, but none as sleek as this :-)
I bought this for around the £8 mark. As far as I can see it does exactly the same but is also a bit smaller and more functional with a clip etc. Also has pause, forward and back buttons. Comes with a variety of attachments including a 90 degree aux input which is very tidy in my car aux.

Pleased with the performance so far although can sound a touch tinny on some songs.

This is more portable, you can use it without any wires. It also has a microphone so it can be used for hands free calling.

It'll work with a USB car charger, and connect to aux with a 3.5mm cable.

Messy, but it would work.

It isn't. For a car you're much better off with the MyJack.
No APT-X?

I'm out ....

​yes we know what that means to You
If you prefer a bit of quality go for Himbox hb01,hands free music and phone plus double USB charger via CIG lighter
If you're in the car then I'd suggest just using a cable, you are sat so close to the radio that Bluetooth isn't going to make your life easier, and you'll probably end up with a charging lead plugged in anyway, so what's the point? This is better for use in a home stereo.

Only problem is that some phones now don't generate a loud enough signal for head units to pick up. I have to have mine turned up really loud because the phone output is so weak, and then all I get is engine whine coming through the speakers.

What makes it worse is Androids frustrating tendency to turn the volume down to 65% whenever headphones are plugged in. (By the way, has anyone figured out how to disable this?).

Bluetooth does away with both of these issues.
The form factor is completely negated by the fact that this will either need a USB cable plugged in or you'll have to take it out and charge it every few hours of use (meaning there's no usability benefit over plugging in an aux cable).
Also no apt-x means this will sound like crap when you turn it up.

Get an apt-x capable Bluetooth receiver and spend 10 minutes neatly running a the Aux cable to it tucked behind some trim.

A decent right angle 3.5mm cable plugged in is going to look much better than this thing sticking out of your head unit.

Setup tasker or llama to set the volume a few seconds after headset connected.
