Multiple bluetooth headphones/earbuds connected to computer?
« on: December 08, 2020, 10:23:00 pm »

Hello,
I'm not sure if I'm posting my question in the correct forum.  if not, please let me know what forum would be best.

My question is:  I have a need to connect multiple bluetooth headphones/earbuds to a computer.
I've searched the internet and the only examples I can find deal with only 2 headphones/earbuds.

Is this even possible?  If so, what sort of bluetooth transmitter that I can plug into the computer would I need?

Thanks!  Ed

Bluetooth is inherently one-to-one in design.  It doesn't "broadcast" like an IEM transmitter.

Thanks Scott.  Over the past couple days I continued my search before seeing your reply and I came across this that looks promising.

Apparently it's a relatively new product so there's very little information (reviews) on it. 
I'm wondering if there's anyone that's heard of it or has used it.

Newer designs support 2 headphones. I have tried a couple and they work. I think even the new iPhones support 2 sets of bluetooth earbuds.
Haven't heard of anything supporting more than that.

If you want multiple people listening, you want RF or IR systems. IR is used for hearing assist and RF are used for those "silent DJ" systems as well as IEMs of course...

On you on Mac or PC?

Soundsource by Rogue Amoeba can route audio by application to individual devices. I've never connected more than one bluetooth device but in theory it should work. Route audio to each headset select the corresponding bluetooth microphone in each application.

If on PC you could use EarTrumpet. It works in a similar way but it's not as slick.
