View Full Version : Bluetooth capabilites on Cowon X7
Hi there eveyone,
does anyone know if there is a device (like a remote etc.) that can change tracks via Bluetooth on the Cowon X7?
There are e.g. few Bluetooth remotes out there (like the Playstation 3 one), but I do not know if that would work.
Thanks much in advance.
No one? ;-((
x7 supports Audio/Video Remote Control Profile (AVRCP) (http://www.google.co.uk/url?url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bluetooth_profile%23Audio.2FVideo_Remote_Control_P rofile_.28AVRCP.29&rct=j&q=avrcp&usg=AFQjCNHj3iXdPrTBNsgZSgec7cXv53wrUA&sa=X&ei=2-9bTsiyE8nX0QH_mOiOBg&sqi=2&ved=0CCsQygQwAA&cad=rja)
so i guess anything that supports that standard would work.
dont know about ps3 stuff as those companies sometimes make changes to the systems so you have to use that brands specific accessories instead of purchasing the competition hardware.
I have an X7 and recently bought a pair of Sennheiser MM450 Bluetooth Headphones.
With Audio tracks I am able to play, pause, fastforward through the track, rewind back the track, skip forward to next track, skip back to previous track and change the volume up and down. I can do the same sort of thing with the video tracks as well.
This is all done by touching various buttons on the side of one of the headphones and is possible because of the AVRCP facility which is compatible with the MM450.
I can also push another button and listen to everything around you (via a built-in mic) so you don't have to take the headphones off if someone starts talking to you or if there is an announcement on a train etc. (I use these for commuting)
The things I can't do are swap between album directories or bring up the X7 menu and move up or down/select those functions - I have to to that via the X7 unit itself. (I basically have full control within the album directory which I am happy with)
I personally think they are fantastic and I don't have the cable catching everytime I turn my head. A slight disadvantage is that you have to charge them up every 8 hours or so but if the power runs out you can plug in a manual cable and listen as if they were normal headphones (until you can charge them up again)
With my headphones the sound quality is great and I haven't experienced any skipping or bluetooth signal loss but I can't say anything about other bluetooth headphone manufacturers (ie Jaybird etc).
Bluetooth is definately a plus for me.
