            I had hoped to use this as a gaming headset, but I had some issue integrating it with World of Tanks. Maybe it works better with other games. Music and game sounds do sound good.

                  Comments about Sennheiser BTD 500 USB Bluetooth Transmitter:

                  I use this with my Oricon hearing aids. Orticon has a divice called ConnectLine Streamer that picks up bluetooth and feeds its hearing aids. The BTD 500 links pretty easily, but when I installed the software, things got wonky. Now I have to have the software open to HeadSetup, Settings, Sound, Recording for it to work. As usual, there is no help phone for the software.
