I want to convert my old media players into Bluetooth ones ( ipod / sansa clip ) but whatever transmitters I find on amazon / flippy are either usb ones ( I need a battery one ) or too big not at all portable ! Also most dont suppprt modern codecs

While there are quite a few of them available on US websites, I cant find any in India here !

Any suggestions ?

Definitely take a look at the Fiio BTR5. Comes around 8-9K INR.

Absolutely magnificent piece of tech, supporting all modern codecs and has in-built DAC/AMP with battery.

The OP is looking for a transmitter so I suppose it needs a 3.5 audio input if I am not mistaken.The ones suggested are all receivers. One can get better ones from Amazon US via Rahul if ok to wait for the longer deliveries.

Pretty much proves my point ha no one even uses transmitters much these days that even though i said transmitters I am still being suggested receiver ! Anyway I just want to able to use my old sansa clip / ipod shuffle with Bt headphones ( either for running or at night with speakers to avoid screen) so was looking for a portable transmitters ! I found few usb powered ones but none portable and battery powered !

So , still need suggestions if anyone can find any !

And yes that would be tha last option to order via US but didnt want to wait that long ideally !

Eons ago when I had the Sansa Clip+, I was using the Blusense Trim (got it via good ol ebay then) as its size was a perfect fit with the clip and I attached it with a couple of bands. Those days are gone .. sigh and I ended up selling both of them.

I think I came across this but it didnt look that portable to be carrying around , but reviews seem good ! I little more compact would have been perfect but that size is expected becasue of all the features it has i suppose !

I think I have exactly what you need because I got it for the exact same reason. Will update you later.
I think it's better option to switch to some new device like this -

https://www.fiio.co.in/products/fii...esolution-music-player?variant=31220065108073

you can use this music player and can transmit directly from this device using HQ LDAC and SBC, also works as bluetooth receiver.
check full specs for details,
this is a feature rich device which is portable too.
I have this and use it blon03. Kuch ni chahiyae is se jayada :)

Just works as stated. Funny thing is I just used it once 'coz I can never run/jog on a regular bases. That is why I got it.

Best of luck getting that delivered to India. If you manage to get it, do let me know. I needed to buy something from Ali as well.

Well i have had multiple things delivered from ali in past succesfully, never had issue. But if you mean in current scenario that might be a problem then maybe I am not sure

If anyone comes across looking for one I got Taotronics TT-BA07 ( although they generally go for 3-4 k it was 2700 other day so I puller the trigger ).

I motsly use wired but for one off situations like sometimes running with my sansa clip its perfect ! The size is exactly what I needed ( even smaller than my clip ) as that was my priority It has low latency and can connect to multiple devices in both Tx / Rx mode . It only arrived couple days ago though I still havent tested thoroughly but so far It looks good !
