Our take on the Korus Baton (30-pin) by Crutchfield's David Brown
The tiny Baton enables your 30-pin iOS device to stream music to Korus wireless speakers.
Want to stream music from your iPhone®, iPad®, or iPod® touch to a Korus wireless speaker? Just connect the Baton adapter to your device's 30-pin port, download the free Korus volume control app, and you can send your music wirelessly to the Korus V400 or V600 speaker from up to 65 feet away. It's great for tunes stored on your device, as well as apps like Spotify®, YouTube™, and even games. You can even charge your phone while using the Baton. Just pick up the Korus Power charging cable, plug it into the base of the adapter, and you can charge you phone while the music keeps playing through your Korus speaker.

1 question already asked
I forwarded your question to an Advisor and they responded with the following: No it will not. It's not actually a Bluetooth transmitter at all and only works with Korus speakers using their proprietary wireless technology. If you would like to discuss further you can contact an Advisor directly by phone (1-800-324-9695) or online chat. [ Krissy Apr 14, 2015 ] Staff
