Sennheiser's are wireless. Bose are bluetooth. Sennheiser is like wearing a walkie talkie on your head.

Wireless audio devices that come with a "base" have a longer range because the radio uses DECT, not Bluetooth.  It's the same technology used in cordless landline phones.

I know visualization "breaks the rules", but it's awfully hard to ignore a walkie talkie on someone's head!

Here they are, working beautifully.

This pair of Minimus-7 speakers came from Radio Shack, back in the 20th Century when they not only were still in business but actually sold stuff you might want to buy.  The 7's were very popular as extension speakers, which is how this pair was used in its previous life.  They pack a pretty big sound and now seem to have a bit of a cult following on teh internets.  My original plan was to convert them to a set of Bluetooth speakers using the TDA7492p board (also quite popular), but then I found the cute acrylic case that shows off the electronics.

These will be going up on a shelf I'm planning to put over my desk.

Oh, did I say "Radio Shack speakers with a Bluetooth amp" ? Sorry, I meant to say "Near field monitors with an outboard DAC." :)

I know no one replied to the last two messages, but I'm still very happy with this little amplifier.  If you have an old set of speakers lying around that you might like to turn into a set of Bluetooth speakers, I am highly recommending it.

Today I learned that there is now such a thing as an "MP5 player."

There's no format called MP5, or even being branded as MP5. But you can buy an MP5 player.

Anyone want to guess (without a web search) what it is?
