The Bluetooth iPod/iPhone Adaptor not only lets you stream music from your Apple device to your Bluetooth accessory. It also adds a remote control functionality so you can play, pause and skip tracks using your speakers or headphones.

The Bluetooth iPod/iPhone Adaptor weighs just 4.5g, measures 43.5 x 15 x 6.6mm and takes power from the iPhone, it has a working range of up to 10m and is available in black, white or silver.

The Bluetooth 3.5mm Mini Jack Adaptor is charged separately from your device via USB. It provides up to 10 hours of listening time and up to 150 hours of stand-by time.
