This USB Bluetooth Adapter for PS4 uses the most recent Bluetooth 4.0 technology and is backwards compatible with PCs, PS4 Controllers, and other Bluetooth devices. A2DP, HSP, and HFP support. Because it is so small and takes up so little space, the USB Bluetooth adapter can be left on devices without interfering with the surrounding USB ports.
Simply plug it into your laptop or PS4 and take it with you wherever you go. You can enjoy lossless music via your Bluetooth device without having to keep an eye on your computer thanks to the transmission range of this USB 4.0 Bluetooth Adapter, which is up to 10 metres. You will also have a better gaming experience. I like this Bluetooth adapter because it provides a very stress-free connection process, and it was only about $12 on Amazon.

When you plug the Bluetooth adapter into the PS4 USB slot, it will connect to any Bluetooth audio device. You have to turn on the PS4 host, connect the adapter by plugging it into a USB port, and press the button on the adapter for two seconds to enter pairing mode. Then, turn on your Bluetooth headset and pair it, and the LED indicator will turn blue to indicate a successful connection. Success! The next time you use the adapter, the Bluetooth headset will automatically connect to it.

Due to its sleek, ultra-small design, the Nano adapter can be inserted into any USB port and simply left there, whether travelling or at home. With a transmission distance of up to 65 feet, you can enjoy lossless music via your Bluetooth headset without hovering around your computer. I found this model on Amazon for $9, which I feel is a fair price.

It has a transmission range of approximately 33 feet (10 metres). It is also very portable, as you can simply plug this PS4 Bluetooth adapter into your laptop or PS4 and take it with you wherever you go.

For the most user-friendly audio experience, just plug in the transmitter and turn on the connecting device, and it will automatically connect. I found this model for $25 on Amazon. It feels a bit expensive, but I think it is worth it.

The Avantree DG80 supports aptX Low Latency, which makes it compatible with Bluetooth speakers and headphones that also support aptX-LL. This eliminates the infamous Bluetooth audio lag problem. Less than 40ms (220ms for standard Bluetooth) of audio lag will be achieved, which is essentially undetectable. I found this model on Amazon for about $29, which is still a bit expensive, but I think it is worth it.
