    Play Electric and Bluetooth

    Hi....new to forum. Looked for an answer but couldn't find anything. Can you use the USB port on the Play Electric to connect a bluetooth transmitter? I'd like to connect to a cordless headphone for use in rehearsals and hear myself when the drummer gets over-excited LOL.
    Thanks

    I'm thinking a USB BT transmitter wouldn't work for a couple different reasons (usually need the host device to have a driver so it knows how to work with the BT device) and the ones I saw on Amazon did not have a connector compatible with the Play Electric.

    However, I did see this BT device that would plug into the headphone jack of the Play Electric with an internal battery that is rechargeable from a USB power source such as your computer

    Could be used on other devices as well

    Thanks Mark. That thought had crossed my mind as well...just a bit put off by the comments about latency problems, which is why I was wondering about the USB. Might just go for your recommendation and see if it works or not...if it doesn't I can at least use it for my hifi system LOL
