The AirFly Pro Bluetooth receiver / transmitter from Twelve South is now $ 41 at Amazon (usually $ 55). This model received the highest marks from Dieter Bohn compared to a few other popular transmitters that make it easier to pair your Bluetooth headphones with, for example, in-flight entertainment or technology such as a Nintendo Switch.
