Features

Bluetooth Audio Adapter: The Sony HWS-BTA2W is a Bluetooth audio adapter which can be used as a stereo wireless receiver or transmitter. There is a mode switch on top of the adapter which allows you to switch between receiver (RX) or transmitter (TX) mode.

  • Receiver Mode: In this mode, the HWS-BTA2W receives stereo audio signals from a Bluetooth stereo audio source (like your smartphone, tablet, or digital music player) and then inputs the signal to an analog connected stereo audio output device (like your home receiver or entertainment system)
  • Transmitter Mode: In this mode, the Bluetooth audio adapter transmits a stereo audio signal from an analog connected music source (like your computer/laptop or TV) to a Bluetooth stereo audio receiving device (like a set of headphones or powered speakers).

Wireless Music Streaming: The Sony HWS-BTA2W Bluetooth audio adapter supports transmission and receiving of music and other audio between devices. 

Note: The Sony HWS-BTA2W does not support Bluetooth hands-free phone communication.

Stereo Minijack Input/Output: The Sony HWS-BTA2W is fitted with a stereo minijack (3.5mm) input and output. Use the minijack input when you have the Bluetooth audio adapter set to Transmitter mode; you non-Bluetooth audio source plugs into this input. Use the minijack output when you have the Bluetooth audio adapter set to Receiver mode; your non-Bluetooth audio output device plugs into this output.

Vertical Stand: The Sony HWS-BTA2W comes with a vertical stand, so it can rest neatly and securely on a desk, shelf, or table.

Power Requirements: The Sony HWS-BTA2W Bluetooth audio adapter operates off of standard household current using the supplied external AC power adapter (Input: AC120V-60Hz, 4W; Output: DC4.5V-500mA)

Q
Can the Reflect Mini BT headphones be connected to my Samsung Smart Television using this device ?

Samsung TV's usually have a 3.5mm audio output and that is the connection needed for this to plug into the TV to work. This can be used with Bluetooth headphones or Bluetooth speakers.
