If you have an old car without bluetooth or AUX and you wish you’d be able to listen to music from your phone in your car, then FM transmitters are a solution. We reviewed the iClever IC-F33, a cool FM transmitter that also has bluetooth. These are our thoughts:
Up to date, I have only used FM transmitter that have 3.5mm audio cable to connect your phone. With FM transmitter, you need to set the same radio station on both your radio and the transmitter, making sure the station is clean and not in use. This way, the device connects to the radio and you can listen to your music through it.
The iClever IC-F33 takes this up a nodge by adding bluetooth to the device, so you don’t have to use a 3.5mm audio cable and instead get wireless connection to the device and radio. You can hook it up the car’s charging port, and it has a USB port so you can charger your gadgets with it.
On the device you will find a button that works as power and pairing. The LED light indicates when it is connected or in pairing mode. It also has buttons for skipping songs, a radio frequency rocker at the bottom, as well as a volumen rocker at the top.
Usually FM transmitter do the job with some interference. I have no idea how iClever did it, but after a several days of testing, I still haven’t experienced any interference at all. The quality of the sound is almost as good as if it was hooked up directly to the radio with an audio cable.
My only issue was the volume, which was like 25% lower than any other device, but if you have a good sound system in your car that will not be a problem.
The iClever IC-F33 is available on Amazon for just $30, and if you’re looking for an FM transmitter, then you might want to check this one out.
