    Bluetooth adapter

    I just got my first Iphone and it does not have the 3.5 mini plug for wired earbuds. I have a pair of Shure 535's that I like to use while riding and was wondering if there is a bluetooth adapter that will connect with my iphone so I can listen to sirius xm radio while being able to plug the 3.5 male plug into the adapter to hear the music? I know that apple sells a lightning to 3.5 plug but it does not get good ratings.

    I have found that the Sena products are what quite a few here use.
    I have a sena 20s that I use and there is a place to plug ear buds into
    the headset so you can use your own ear buds if you want and skip
    using their speakers, which is a good thing because most times the
    ear buds sound so much better.
    All you have to do get the headset to talk to your phone and you are done.

    I bought CoreLife bluetooth adapter (AMAZON) that I plugged into my 3.5 mm jack. Cost 10 bucks, hooked up to my 12V cigarette adapter I installed with a USB cable to keep it charged. Works Great! hooks up to my Iphone and play my music or my GPS directly through my speakers. I had it for more than a year and best 10 bucks I've spent!

    Shortleg, just wanted to say thanks! I ordered a Sena 20S from Amazon and got it today. Paired with my earbuds, fantastic!

    What a freewire is used for is you plug your headset jack into it useing an adapter.
    Then useing a sena or other blue tooth headset you are able to use a CB abtut this.and any other
    device that comes through the headset jack. So the freewire both transmits and receives.
    Instead of a freewire I use a Sena sm10 which only receives.because I donot have a CB.
    Useing the sm10 and a Sena 20s I have Asat radio, thumb drive, radio and GPS along
    with the abilities to make and get phone calls also talk to other riders.
    Hope I didn't get too long wind

    Trying to figure this all out as well. I usually ride with about three other dudes, two have Sena. I was looking at the Cardo Packtalk setup but am leaning more toward the Sena 20S Evo.

    The sena products seem to have worked well for me in all situations so far.
    Am able to integrate all my devices to my sena headset, even other companies
    Headsets for communication.
