    Hi all!

    I'm looking to turn my Phillips SHP9500S headphones into a wireless set, by attaching to it a portable Bluetooth audio receiver. Now obviously I'm concerned about audio quality, and would like to use an Apt-X HD receiver. The one in particular I'm eyeing is the EarStudio ES100

    But there is a problem - I want it for general use with my PC as well. Including games. But the ES100 does not support Apt-X Low Latency. Receiver will be max 1 meter away from the transmitter with unbroken line of sight. My phone (OP3T) supports Apt-X HD and not Apt-X LL. Pairing it with my SMSL B1 from said distance, the delay seems negligible. But I want to be sure it will be the same case with the ES100. Because I'm not spending $100 on something relegated to just music listening.

    Has anyone had experience with the ES100? I'd like to hear from you.
    If it is not workable for my needs, I might have to settle for the FiiO BTR1 which supports Apt-X Low Latency but not HD. I don't care for the mic feature of the BTR1. Have nothing that takes balanced output or AAC.

    Don't worry about PC transmitter. Spending max $150 on the receiver, probably adding on an iFi iEMatch as well (the Ear Buddy won't ship to me country) Will not be getting a wireless headset. Have seen the thread on the ES100 but nothing particularly helpful for my use case.
