List Of Apt-X Compatible Devices (transmitters, receivers, etc.)

Updated March 08, 2014. Next update in April. 2014.

Apt-X is a neat audio compression technology (codec) that optimizes audio streaming through Bluetooth, basically it's trying to transmit CD level audio quality wirelessly.  The technology is owned by CSR.  Companies use "Apt-X", "aptX", or "aptx" in their product pages to note this technology.

The first Apt-X devices that I used where the Sennheiser MM 550-X headphones and the Creative BT-D1 transmitter. For Apt-X to work you need a transmitter and a receiver.  Transmitters are those devices that send the wireless data. Some transmitters are built into a device and other times they need a "dongle." Eventually many devices will have Apt-X built-in, but until then you may need the dongle transmitter.  The other side of Apt-X involves the receivers, which are devices that output audio, like speakers and headphones.

This post will have a list of devices with Apt-X technology, hopefully it makes the "search" process a lot easier.

My experiences: Soundmatters foxLv2 Platinum, Braven 650, Sennheiser MM 550-X, Azio BTD-V4, Creative BT-D1, Avantree Saturn, and the CSR Harmony software.

Key Apt-X Features:
  • Compression ratio: 4:1
  • Audio Format: 16-bit, 44.1 kHz (CD Quality)
  • Data Rates: 352 Kbps
  • Frequency Response: 10 Hz to 22 kHz
  • Algorithmic Delay: <1.89 ms @ Fs 48 kHz Dynamic Range: 16-bit > 92 dB
  • THD+N: -68.8 dB

Apple Products
  • Mac OS X
  •  Mac
  • MacBook
  •  iPad (needs additional transmitter, check above under iOS Devices and 3.5mm transmitter)
  • iPod (needs additional transmitter, check above under iOS Devices and 3.5mm transmitter)
  • iPhone (needs additional transmitter, check above under iOS Devices and 3.5mm transmitter)

As of right now, Apple products supporting Mac OS X operating system support Apt-X.  iOS devices do not support Apt-X natively and require the use of Apt-X transmitters.  If you run into issues with Mac OS X you can check this forum thread.

Info collected from CSR, Twitter, Amazon, Google Shopping, blogs, product and support pages.

If you find a new device you can add it to the comments. Keep in mind that "old" comments will be flushed away so the new device additions can be seen by others. Thanks!


  1. I noticed Creative added FastStream codec to their BT-W1 USB transceiver and WP-450 headphones. How does this codec compare to apt-X?

    1. I cannot give you accurate information regarding that. I heard of FastStream years ago, and Apt-X is more recent. Both Apt-X and FastStream are CSR technologies. Since my answer is quite poor, I would recommend using Dr. Google

    2. Thanks Jesse. Dr. Google says FastStream codec provides bidirectional audio + voice for Internet chats or in-game conversations. So it seems apt-X is better "CD" quality for listening to music unless bi-directional support is needed such as for Skype calls.

    3. If you look at the comments under this Creative BT dongle they implemented both codecs: http://asia.creative.com/products/product.asp?category=437&subcategory=972&product=20867&nav=1

      To enable faststream codec, they tell you to force enable the mic I think. Seems like faststream is for low latency (movie watching/gaming/voip) and AptX codec is optimized for deep detail music listening. The BT-D1 dongle they have does NOT support faststream which is interesting.

    4. But the BT-W1 does support faststream. I think kleernet is the best solution for uncompressed audio but most likely needs an extra chip which most phones and tablets won't have. If APTX takes off, it's because it just needs to use the special codec software with bluetooth 2.1 and that good enough

    5. faststream is a low latency (low quality) codec used in gaming product. It is a quite old technology from CSR.

      APT-X is high quality codec.
      APT-X LL (I think relatively new, not sure if any product have it on the market, the license is more expensive than APT-X) is the low latency version of the high quality codec from CSR


  2. This page is a Great Idea: I really believe in the development of apt-x which appart from music will also finally bring a much-needed clarity over mobile calls made over BT headsets. I've been looking for this list for months so thank you Jessie !

    Also, I'm sure you will soon update this ressource with recently announced Samsung Galaxy Note II and the JBL PlayUp and JBL PowerUp speakers announced by Nokia today. I haven't been able to get confirmation whether the Nokia Lumia 920 and 820 that were presented along with those JBL speakers today have apt-x. At least I haven't seen that on the specs..

    1. Yes there are many new devices and I'll try to update the list soon.

  3. I own the MM 450-X Travel, and really want to take advantage of its capabilities.
    My Mac Pro early 2009 has apt-x, so I can hear the difference.
    I fear that iphone 5 won't support apt-x.
    My most desired product is a toslink to bt with apt-x. Unfortunately, no-one seems to make such a transmitter. I post that, so perhaps some product marketing genius might get a clue.

    1. Sennheiser BT300i works fine with the Apple 30-pins to Lightning adapter ... thankfully :-)

    2. looks like these same guys from Advance Acoustic listened to your wishes Eric (apt-x to toslink coax&optical):

      or were you looking to do contrary (i.e. receive toslink transmit apt-x?)

  4. It is in the list up but link is dead.
    New link:

  5. An apt-x bt receiver not in your list:

  6. APT-X Transceiver - works as either a transmitter or a receiver

    Avantree® Saturn Bluetooth Audio Converter Adapter Transceiver - A2DP AVRCP apt-x CSr - 2-in1 Receiver + Transmitter

    1. That is quite unique! Usually these devices can only do one function, but that one can do both. Excellent find!

    2. Wish it could do both at the same time. But, you have to select one or the other. I'm on the lookout for an APT-X dongle that is full duplex so I can use it with a wired headset that has a boom microphone. If anyone knows of one, please message me!

    3. Took me awhile, but I finally found an APT-X full duplex device. It's the HTC BH S600.


  7. Is your list of cell phones supporting Aptx up to date?

    1. At the bottom of the page I posted up to when the list has been updated. I'll try to do a revision before the year ends.

    2. Sweet! thanks! This is the only place I have been able to find a list of cell phones with aptX.

  8. Portable speakers: Logitech UE Boombox

    1. I have not seen any legitimate evidence supporting the Logitech UE Boombox as having Apt-X.

  9. Actually Mac OS X on recent Macs does support aptX. It's just not enabled by default.


    1. Charles, I have read that forum discussion a few times. If a user has useful information then that is great. If enough users confirm the validity of such claims then it is more likely that the claim is true. However, this does NOT qualify as an official statement by Apple or CSR regarding Apt-X support in Mac OS X. Because of the mixed answers found within search engines I chose to keep the Apple portion on the post.

      I have sent a message to CSR regarding this topic and I will update the post when I receive a reply. Hopefully they answer soon.

    2. Updated the post with the reply. Mac OS X does support Apt-X and iOS does not.

  10. Any idea if the Galaxy Tab 2 7 supports aptx? Thanks...

    1. I'm not aware of support for Apt-X for that Galaxy Tab.

    2. Thanks - struggling to locate to a 7.0 plus tablet. Might have to go for the 10.1 Note....

    3. You might want to wait a few more days, there will be new Apt-X devices announced at CES in January 8-11. http://www.csr.com/blog/

  11. Hi,

    Advance Acoustic EZY-80 all in one system is also apt-X compatible.


    Best regards

  12. Hi,

    there is a very cheap and fully functional aptx-licensed usb-bt-dongle, works great:



    1. Good catch. Most of what I have browsed are US websites, so I might have to begin browsing other countries to find more. Thanks for finding this.

    2. Thanks indeed, I just ordered it and will look into testing it (hope they have an english manual..)

    3. Wow.. that is a great find. I surf amazon germany frequently and did not come across this. Too bad I have just bought Creative BT-D5 today.
      I pair the BT-D5 with my Creative WP-350. One thing that confuses me is that music from iPhone4 sounds better than iPad2, both with BT-D5. Anyone knows why is this? Or is there something I have missed?

    4. Hi guys,

      bought this Adapter, works fine and apt-x enabled (good sound quality) but i will return it because the latency is way to high for video playback (~600ms).

      I didn't find a possibility to enable faststream or something like that. :( - can anybody confirm that or have suggestion to improve the latency?

      Before, i had the BTD-500, that worked really nice but is too big on a laptop and expensive.
      My next try will be the BT-W1 (i think its better than BT-D1 because of bi-directional functionality - and both are 39,99 EUR in GER)

      PS: i use them from Vista-Laptop to a ZiiSound D5 Speaker for Music and Video Playback.

      greetings from Germany

    5. Guys, for the price I do recommand this dongle.

      I tested on both Windows XP and Windows 8 to Nokia Essence earphones, this dongle works beautifully (and cheap too). It came with CSR Harmony software drivers.

      I like the apt-x notification which pops up when your apt-x device connects, which is a good way to make sure you're not just using standard SBC codec (that said, you do notice the difference in sound, also making a good confort difference on Skype or VoIP).

      I just ordered a second one for another PC: Advance WTX-5 BT for 10€ http://www.audiophonics.fr/dongle-usb-emetteur-audio-bluetooth-aptx-p-7201.html (at least it looks like the same thing, based on CSR 8510 chipset).

    6. Hi Guys, can anybody confirm that this dongle will actually work with a macbook pro (recent mac os x)? Regarding latency I am a bit concerned: Most times when audio latency gets too high video streams from the web will start to stutter as frames and sound get out of sync...

    7. Hi guys,

      as described in my answer above, can anybody confirm or decline the latency Problem with this cheap APT-X Dongle?
      Latency ist 600ms min, sometimes up to ~1200ms, but after time it goes back to ~600ms.

      In other words: Do you have same latency, less, more?

      Maybe this Problem is based on the drivers?
      I think mine is "CSR Harmony Bluetooth-Software-Stack Version"

      Please tell me your experience with the latency, thx!

  13. The Telme Tosblue II transmitter is aptX enabled.


    1. Forgot to say that the Tosblue transmitter supports 3.5mm input as well as optical digital (toslink, only PCM supported, not Dolby Digital).

  14. Hi,
    does anybody know if it's possible to pair a Advance Acoustic WTX500 with a transceiver like Avantree Saturn, JayBird uSport or Sennheiser BTD 300 ??
    WTX500 appear like a bluetooth device without pin code

    1. Hi, just buy the usb dongle 2 pos. before - it works perfect with WTX 500 !

  15. The newly announced Klipsch KMC-3 portable speaker supports aptX, as well as the new Jaybird BlueBuds X headphones.



    Great site! Thanks for providing a good source

    1. The BlueBuds X do NOT have Apt-X. The claim by JayBird is that they have "Shift Premium Bluetooth Audio: Premium sound & warm bass, outperforms most wired headphones without needing apt-X." This is what the box that 's sitting in front of me says. Be careful, not every product page that mentions "apt-X" actually has Apt-X. In this case Jaybird acknowledges Apt-X, but does not provide it.

  16. Yours is the single most useful web site on this topic. Thanks! Hoping to add an Apt-X transmitter to an iPhone 4S, should one go with an "iOS device" or an "3.5 mm transmitter" option (e.g. JayBird iSport vs. uSport)?

    I remain utterly confused about whether the cheap internal DAC can be bypassed either way, but am not sure that bypassing even matters. Which is the "better" signal?

    1. I'm not sure, but I would go for the adapter as it will attach easily. The 3.5mm is fine, but you may end up using rubber bands or something to keep the adapter together (at least if you are moving the iPhone). I'm not sure which would provide better signal.

  17. it was about time HTC came out with an apt-x earbud style headset to go with their Android 'One'serie: BH S600

    1. Updated post with your addition. Thanks!

  18. Hi I have long studied the issue and found a few more devices that are not in your list.
    1. The products of Marmitek (http://www.marmitek.com/en/product-details/audio-video-at-home/listen-anywhere/bluetooth-music-solutions/boomboom-90.php)
    2. The products of lintech (http://www.lintech.de/bluelino/)
    Here are the two devices, but they need to check?

  21. Hello,

    I am currently trying MM 450 X with Samsung Galaxy S3 (latest 4.1.2 ROM) and am experiencing quite a lot of lags and scratches, connection seems to be very sensitive to distance / layers, like in a jacket / ...
    Did any of you experience that? Or do I just have a faulty headphone or phone?

  22. Hey Jesse, it looks like CSR FINALLY started disclosing their (exhaustive?) list of apt-x compatible devices:

    not sure since when they did that, but it was about time !

    1. Sometimes I find that their page is outdated or missing products. Their blog seems to have the latest info. But, if CSR is posting a full list of devices then there may not be need for me to update this blog post anymore. Unless people still want me to update it.

  23. Hi! I have bought China's BT 4.0 dongle with CSR8510 A10 chipset for $4. Marc Dumazet upper at this topic wrote that chipset supports aptx. But i can't enable it. With standard Microsoft's driver it sounds bad. Then I have installed CSR Harmony Software which says that I have no licence to use this.
    How can I enable aptx?

    1. And yes, I have aptx headset Samsung HS3000 which sounds very good with Samsung Galaxy S3 with aptx.

    2. In Windows 7 some Bluetooth devices have two renders. One gives crappy audio quality (this is the mode to use if using it to answer phone calls), the other is the one that delivers high audio quality (but this cannot answer phone calls).

      Check the following link, and scroll down to "To enable the audio device: Press the Win key and type "Manage Audio Devices" and open it."

      I'm unsure what that BT 4 dongle uses for software, but the Apt-X process can occur on the device and you may not see something that states that Apt-X is active. If I recall, this is a behavior that I saw on the Creative BT-D1.

  24. Hi Jesse. Good site with a wealth of info. I have a Jaybird uSport adapter with the accompanying Jaybird headphones. The adapter is a bit flimsy and I think the inevitable has happened where a wire may have a come loose, as the sound quality is a bit intermitent. Question is, is their an equivalent product of the Jaybird iSport that fits into a 3.5mm headphone port for non-Apple products? Thanks.

    1. I'm using an Avantree Saturn, and there are many other 3.5mm ones. If you are looking for something very small then you won't find it, yet. These transmitters have a decent size to them, so they are not as convenient as something like the Jaybird iSport.

    2. Thanks Jesse.
      So you're not aware of anything similar to the iSport phone that plugs directly into a 3.55m jack?

      Many thanks.

  25. Hi,

    i have a question. Does the Tablet Samsung Tab 3 8.0 WiFi support the apt-x codec? This is very important for me
    On the website from Samsung and in the manual of this tablet I can´t find
    anything about this.

    Thanks in advance for your reply
    Regards from germany

  26. Hi. Not sure if I found the answer here, but can you confirm if the iphone 5 and or the iPad 2 incorporate APT-X technology. I transmit from those devises to the Avantree Saturn connected to my home stereo and it sounds fine but I don't know if its because of the APT-X or am I missing out on better sound because APT-X is not operating with those devises. Thanks. Great source for info !!

    1. CSR has stated that Mac OS X devices are the only Apple products that support Apt-X. iOS devices, such as the iPhone 5 and the iPad 2, do not support Apt-X. These latter devices need to use a 3.5mm transmitter in order to achieve the highest audio quality through BT.

  27. One more : ARCTIC S113 BT

  28. Hello Jesse. I have found link to my BT 4.0 USB dongle review at your list of Apt-X devices (http://mysku.ru/blog/buyincoins/17573.html) It is good, but it is not as simple as it seems with this device. Yes, I understand that you dont know Russian language and not properly understood what is written there. I'll explain you in a few words what I wrote there:
    1. This device dont have CD disc with CSR Harmony stack included.
    2. If you install CSR Harmony 2.1.63 and plug device in you will receive message "You don't have a valid license to start CSR Harmony." And, as a consequence, it will not working with aptX. But support for this CSR8510 A10 chip declared at CSR Harmony pdf "release notes".
    3. But guy below at comments says that he bought same adapter on ebay with CD included and it installs and works correctly.
    4. Some other people bought she same adapters on dx.com with CD indluded and it doesn't work correctly with CSR Harmony stack and shows same error with license but for some other people it works.
    You can read about it here http://club.dx.com/forums/forums.dx/forum.143276 and here http://club.dx.com/forums/forums.dx/forum.162123 .
    5. All of them (working and not working) have the same VID/PID: "USB\VID_0A12&PID_0001&REV_8891"

    It's a lottery to get a China's noname adapter on CSR8510 A10 chipset which working with CSR Harmony stack with aptX support.
    Sorry for my English.

    1. Thank you for this in depth explanation. I'll modify the spreadsheet and link to this comment.

  29. Receiver w/ NFC and APTX Codec Support

    1. I've seen that box sold under various brands, but the monoprice one seems to be the best price.

  30. There is a new brand named VOXOA, which headphones come with bluetooth 4.0, aptx, aac and nfc

  31. The Sony Xperia Z1 and Z Ultra support apt-x

  32. Not so sure of the LG G2:


    1. LG G2 aptX compatibility confirmed. Enabling it requires adb or root as well as some commands entered via text console, but it only needs to be enabled once.


  33. There's a new Receiver with NFC and APTX & AAC Codec Support.
    Philips AEA2500/12; http://www.philips.co.uk/c/app-enhanced-accessories/304542/cat/#/adapter
    I have also a question : why do we need another codec (apt-x) instead of using just an AAC stream?

    1. CSR are one of the biggest companies in bluetooth, with Samsung having cross-licensed their patents, and CSR own APT-X. My guess is that its cheaper to license AptX than other rivals.
      AptX is actually not particularly new, see wikipedia.

  34. I got the Philips AEA2500 and the Logilink BT0015 (incl. CSR Harmony for under $9 and aptx works. I'm using Windows 8.1 64 bit.

  35. Thanks for the great collection. I tried Bluedio R+ but Apt-X wasn't work... and several forum posts (I found at least 2) state the same. I tried several bluetooth transmitters both software-enabled (CSR-chip dongle with Harmony-BT-Stack) and hardware-enabled (BTD 500 from Sennheiser), only with quitely-chirping SBC support. Other Headphones (Creative WP 380) supported perfect Apt-X quality.

  36. I am using VOXOA HD Wireless Headphones with my Galaxy III, and it works great with aptX. The sound is clear, and you can not tell the difference with wired even.

  37. Wow, thanks for putting this together. It's the most comprehensive list I've seen.

    I need a bluetooth receiver (only, though I wouldn't turn down a dual rx/tx unit; just would never use transmit) for my Sonos Play 5. I would prefer a unit that did not need to be permanently plugged into the wall, though it's not a deal breaker. Definitely want Apt-X and prefer NFC. I only need a 3.5mm headphone output. No need for digital out. What would you recommend?

    1. I have an Avantree Cara, which I use in the car, and am very pleased with it. It's stuck to the dash near the steering wheel, and its 3.5mm jack connects to the Ford radio with an AUX adaptor. It has a battery, so can be used without being powered (microUSB power).

  38. So is there no way to use a PC dongle to attach to an Android phone to get some APT-X quality out of it? It's available for iOS, why not android?

    1. Huh?
      many Android phones will stream AptX over bluetooth, no need to attach anything to the phone.

  39. I found another page listing devices with AptX

  40. Apparently Motorola stopped supporting Apt-X :-(

    I can confirm however that the Sony Z1 Compact supports Apt-X:


  41. I confirmed that I got the Apt-X pop-up on connecting to my Nyrius receiver using this USB dongle:

    ORICO BTA Series Low Energy Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter Dongle for Windows XP Windows 7 Windows 8 32 or 64 Bit (Model T Bluetooth 4.0 Adapter Red)

    They have lots of different colors and shapes, I bought the one above.
