I'm currently working on putting together a module that would allow you to stream audio over Bluetooth to any set of headphones from 32 to 600 ohms impedance. I couldn't find anything that was relatively cheap, with good audio quality, that worked over a standard Bluetooth connection, so I thought I'd try to make something myself (I'm an engineer with a background in electronics and circuit design, so I like this stuff :D) Since I wouldn't describe myself as a "real" audiophile, I thought I'd get some input from you guys on whether you'd want something like this, and if so what features you'd want.
If you could take the time to answer a few questions, I'd really appreciate it!
#1. Would limiting the frequency range to below 20khz be a problem for you?
#2. Would using a lossy codec (albeit high quality, as in > 500kbps) be a problem for you?
#3. How much battery life would you expect from a product like this?
#4. Would you mind mounting it on your headband?
#5. Is mobile capability critical for you (as in, would you need it to work with your cell phone/PMP)?
#6. Lastly, kind of an open question, but are there any features you'd love to have on something like this? (Track skip controls, optional noise cancellation etc.)
If you're interested, I'll post some proposed specs and details for you to tear apart.
