Best MP3 Player FM Transmitters in 2020



ZEEPORTE Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, 1.8" Color Screen Wireless Bluetooth FM Radio Adapter QC3.0 Qucik Charger with EQ Mode, 3 USB Ports, 4 Music Playing, Hands-Free Calls, TF Card, AUX Output - Review:


 This is probably my favorite thing out of so many things I've purchased. It lets me listen to my favorite music, instead of static or constantly repeated songs on the radio. I can use it with a Micro SD card, flashdrive or Bluetooth. It even comes with an auxiliary cord to use with devices not Bluetooth enabled, like some old MP3 players, and two USB ports to plug in cords so you can charge two devices.
I connect my phone to this transmitter every time I get in my vehicle. Even if I'm just going for a five minute ride, honestly. And it really helped with my seven hour trip to my vacation condo. All you have to do to make it work is match to station on the transmitter with the station on your radio and you're good to go. Even the sound quality is great. I've answered my phone with this thing, too, and my husband said it sounded as if I was just talking from my phone instead of from the vehicle. Which also makes it great as a hands free device. No more Bluetooth headphones slipping out your ear. Plus, it works in any vehicle with a working radio. Like my year 2000 vehicle. It works like a charm and I'd most definitely recommend this product to everyone I know. Because it's awesome.



Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, Wireless FM Radio Transmitter Adapter Car Kit Dual USB Charging Port Car Charger with Hands Free Calls and 1.44” LCD Display Support Aux Input/Output TF Card USB Disk Review:


I am really impressed with how well this works. It was a breeze to connect and pair with car and phone. The Bluetooth connectivity, Aux cord and a USB port came in great. The physical buttons are awesome and easy to use without taking my eyes off the road. Very good quality for price and the sound quality is great. I can charge my device at the same time. It works just as I hope for!



VicTsing (Upgraded Version) V5.0 Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, QC3.0 & LED Backlit Wireless Bluetooth FM Radio Adapter Music Player/Car Kit with Hands-Free Calls, Siri Google Assistant Review:


Nifty little device that performs as advertised. Well made and well packaged. Purchased to use in a 2005 luxury vehicle that looks and runs great but lacks today's bells and whistles. No touchscreen, no GPS, no USB, no audio inputs. Has an in dash CD and an OEM CD changer in the trunk, so I was primarily buying the Bluetooth transmitter for use with my iPhone 6S to place/receive calls and for use with GPS maps when driving.

Pros: Super easy to set up. Unit looks nice and it was a snap to connect to a blank FM frequency. Paired with the phone right away. My vehicle does not deliver power to the cigarette lighter when the engine is turned off, so no problem with turning the Bluetooth transmitter on and off. When I fire up the engine I am ready to use the device. Audio is clear and it picks up my voice well, or so I am told. Note - works best if the volume on your phone is maxed out and you control volume with the audio system in the car. I can use the button on the transmitter to disconnect the phone call if I want to and the phone automatically selects the Bluetooth transmitter when I place a call or use maps.

Cons: Not any really. In my case the cigarette lighter is inside of a pop up panel on the dash and I was using a small USB interface plugged into the socket and the door would close when not in use. Unfortunately this unit sticks out too far so I have to leave the door open all the time. I doubt many people would have this issue and regardless the transmitter is not terribly large, it is just my particular situation. Also I live in a very dense metro area and there are FM stations on every other frequency. As a result I get some static in the background, but I found that if I max the phone volume I can keep the audio system volume at a level that minimizes the issue. I can't even hear it hardly over the air conditioning most of the time.

All in all, for the money, it does what I want it to do. Looks nice, feels well made and is unobtrusive. so far, so good.



Nulaxy Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, 1.8" Color Screen Radio Adapter W QC3.0 & 5V/2.4A Charging, Handsfree Call, Support Microsd Card, Aux Play, EQ Modes - KM18 [Upgraded Version] Black Review:


If you have the previous Km18 transmitter, don't hesitate and do the upgrade. The previous model was awesome in every aspect but against the new version, it comes short. The first KM18 was only to play music because to make calls it didn't work. The person on the other side couldnt hear me. Even when I recorded a voice message to send in WhatsApp, I was not able to hear myself if I press play to hear the message.

In the upgraded version, that problem is gone. Now I can receive my calls with no problem. The other side can hear me perfectly and for that alone, the upgrade is justified. But, thats not all. The sound now is slightly better, there's no static at all never, it connects to your phone in one second, the color screen is brilliant and the fast charger is a must have now days.

If you don't own a bluetooth transmitter this is the one you are searching for. And if you already own one of the previous models, I stronly suggest you the upgrade. It's now better in everyway. Now I can used it to make calls and I love it even more.



VicTsing Bluetooth FM Transmitter, Wireless In-Car Radio Transmitter Adapter /w USB Port, Support AUX Input 1.44 Inch Display TF Card Slot - Silver Grey Review:


Price I paid - $18.99

I've had this since late June, so about 5 months now. The product works well, it allows my 15 year old car without Bluetooth capabilities to now have quasi-Bluetooth capabilities. For the most part, the sound quality is clear and static free. Simply pick a blank station on your radio, I use 87.9 if I remember correctly, set the channel on the transmitter to the 87.9 as well, pair with your device that's streaming audio, wait for the confirmation and you're good to go.

The device will very seldom disconnect from the 12v outlet, this is not at all common. As long as your outlet is in good shape you should be okay. One of my two outlets is not in such good shape, and it's tricky getting the transmitter to stick in there. But, that's the case with anything I plug into that particular outlet.

The volume knob works fine, I don't mess with it all that often, I prefer to leave it where it is and use the volume on my phone first and foremost.

The USB port works okay, it's not Fast Charging capable, it would be great if it was but it doesn't need to be. It will charge your phone / tablet / mp3 player faster than some other outlets, and for what it is it works fine. A nice addition in my opinion.

The problem with this model is that it doesn't have a power switch, so in cars like mine that continue to allow devices plugged into the 12v outlet to use power after the car is off, that's a problem. If your car happens to shut down power to any devices plugged in once the car is turned off, you'll be okay with this. Mine doesn't, so I have to unplug and plug back in the VicTsing every time I get in and out of the car. It's an unnecessary process and an oversight on the manufacturers behalf. However, they did fix this issue with an updated model, so I would go with that one. I'll link the newer version below, hopefully it is clickable but if not you'll want to search for something along the lines of VicTsing Bluetooth FM Transmitter Energy Saving.

https://www.amazon.com/VicTsing-Bluetooth-Transmitter-Support-Wireless/dp/B073D294M5/

Unfortunately I haven't had the chance to use that unit with the power saving capabilities, mostly because I don't feel that it's worth spending another $19 for a device that I already have. For now I'll just deal with the inconvenience. If I had another chance I would purchase the newer version, assuming everything else works the same.



VicTsing Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, Wireless Bluetooth Radio Transmitter Adapter Car Kit with Hand-Free Calling and 1.44” LCD Display, Music Player Support TF Card USB Flash Drive AUX Input/Out Review:


I deliver packages for my job, so I use it eight hours a day. The sound quality is amazing, and I like all the different ways available to listen to your media, plus you can charge your phone while using gps. My unit developed air bubbles under the display which cannot be rubbed out. I had the end pop off but found the metal piece and plastic part and screwed it back together and it went back to working fine. There's just a few things that I think can be improved to make this a five star rating. The display is very bright at night, there should be a button on top to turn it off but still be able to listen. I don't like how the dial controls the sound, you have your radio volume and phone volume for that. Whenever I first pop it in it's at 26 or 19 and I need to turn it up. Instead, it should be used to fast forward/backtrack your song. I have been told that it's very hard to hear me when using it for calling but I think it's due to road noise from using a truck that is open with a cargo area. I'm able to change it to just being able to be used for media through the bluetooth settings on samsung galaxy s7. Have not tried using it in conjunction with wireless earpiece yet. It does what I need it to and enjoy listening to podcasts while working. I can push the dial to pause what I'm listening to, quickly get out, and pick up back where I left off, all without having to touch my phone. A great time saver. I bought this because I read about ones with the flexible neck breaking. It's still working great after 8 months of use. I would highly recommend it.



Nulaxy Bluetooth FM Transmitter for Car, Upgraded V4.2 and 7 Color LED Backlit Car Radio Bluetooth Adapter Supports QC3.0 Fast Charging, USB Flash Drive, microSD Card, Handsfree Car Kit – NX10 Black Review:


This is a great budget solution if you don't feel like installing an after-market stereo into your semi-old car (in my case, 2009 Mitsubishi Lancer). The transmitter is easy to install, and very intuitive to use - plug, connect, and start playing off your phone. The instructions are not very clear, but in order to change the frequency a bit easier, long press the multifunction button, and then use the dial to navigate to a free frequency. The transmitter defaults to a popular frequency, and will pick up a ton of static in heavily populated areas, so be mindful of setting the frequency otherwise you'll just have a ton of static. The microSD slot is underneath the main panel area which might be a pain, but I personally never use microSDs for music. One of the most useful features is the battery life info it flashes when you start the car (which conveniently let me know I'm due for a new car battery).

The only minor gripe I have is that the device autoconnects to my phone, and if I receive calls, it'll go throughout the car automatically which personally throws me off a bit that I need to talk hands-free. Other than this minor inconvenience, this is a great, reliable product.

Pros: easy to use, great clarity, fairly low profile

Cons: instructions may be a bit unclear, will automatically connect to your phone and will be hands-free*

Recommended Use: all occasions, no limits



Nulaxy Bluetooth Car FM Transmitter Audio Adapter Receiver Wireless Hands Free Car Kit W 1.44 Inch Display - KM18 Black Review:


I drive an 08 Nissan Sentra that has bluetooth but not really lol I've tried out SO many different kinds of bluetooth transmitters and have never found one that automatically connects to my phone, UNTIL NOW! This little thing has been great because it not only autoconnects to your phone, but charges it, you can answer calls, and change the radio station to fit your needs easily. It even gives you information on your car battery. I always unplug it though whenever I'm not in my car just because I don't like having things constantly plugged in, but everytime I plug it back in and phone's bluetooth is on, it automatically pairs. I'm in heaven with this thing. It looks great, isn't flimsy, screen is easily readable, and I can take it with me and use it in any car if I want (think rental cars!). The only downside is that it's playing through the radio, so the bass and just overall sound isn't up to par with using a dongle and just plugging my phone in. If it was the same quality, I would use this 100% of the time, but I do alternate plugging in and bluetoothing it.



VicTsing (Upgraded Version) Bluetooth FM Transmitter, Auto Scan Unused Station Bluetooth Radio Transmitter Adapter for Car with 1.8" Color Screen, QC 3.0, EQ Modes, Aux, Hands-Free Calls Review:


I’ve never heard of these before getting a car that’s 19years old. It was kind of annoying not being able to play my music and having to sift through radio stations to find what I liked. This changed all of that. I’ve been using it for a few weeks and the sound quality through the cars speakers are great! Considering this is one of the cheaper options for this product, I found it greatly exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend this if you don’t have Bluetooth in your car.



Handsfree Call Car Charger,Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter Radio Receiver,Mp3 Music Stereo Adapter,Dual USB Port Charger Compatible for All Smartphones,Samsung Galaxy,LG,HTC,etc. Review:


Great product! I bought this little gem for my 1999 Ford Ranger. Evidently, I'm going through a mid-life crisis of sorts because I decided to add a 3 inch lift, bigger tires, and sweet wheels and get a little bit of that truck's youthful mojo back! After all, it was my first car after college and the only vehicle I ever bought new. I like that truck. Only one problem with the truck--it didn't have bluetooth. I like talking on the phone hands free (while driving) and I thought I'd give this one a shot.

This was way easier to setup and get started that I thought it would be. The audio is clear. The transmission from the bluetooth device to the radio is seamless and I haven't had any cracks, pops, cross static, radio interference, or loss of signal. You can leave the hands free device plugged in for a few days, but if you leave it in too long it will drain the battery. I learned this the hard way (like I learn most things in life). The push to talk button works great with the iPhone and it actually dials better than the bluetooth device built into my Prius.

Now that I think about it, that's exactly why I'm fixing up my truck. I drive a freaking Prius, people! And I wanted something with a little more grit to take camping AND talk hands-free while driving. I'm going camping after the first of the year and I really don't want to pull up to the site in a Prius. Don't get me wrong, I love my Prius. It holds TONS of gear, but it looks like a door stop. There. You have it. That's why I'm lifting my truck.

The streaming audio works like a champ on this bad boy! I've been totally jamming to Christmas music lately on my Pandora station. After you pair the phone with the device, it's just as easy to stream music. Nothing like going down the road in a awesome looking truck jamming out to Otis Redding singing "Merry Christmas Baby". Honestly, the Bonnie Raitt / Charles Brown version of that song rocks too. They did a duet on the "A Very Special Christmas Album 2" album and it's fantastic. Both versions sound nice and clear on this!

Side note: I haven't tried the micro SD slot on the handsfree yet, so I can't give you a review on that. Maybe I'll do an update when I get time.

The only downside I've heard from it is not on my end. Sometimes the people I call say that they hear their voice echo. I'm assuming it's because they hear their voice coming through my radio. Actually, the only person that's really complained about it is Rob--and he complains about every damn thing on the planet. I'm serious. Right now his big beef is that Thor Ragnarok was just "too slapsticky". This is coming from THE SAME GUY who made me watch Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog. And that's 42 minutes of my life that I'll never get back. Never. Get. Back.

I was a little worried that it may protrude too far from my cigarette lighter slot (yes, this truck is old enough to have a cigarette lighter) and catch the shifter on the way down. It doesn't. It's got a low profile and it's perfect for tight spaces! YES!

All in all, this is a great product. I recommend it to anyone looking to add hands free audio to their car.

I've already bought one for my wife's Smart car for Christmas. I hope she doesn't read this. I've also included pictures of it in the vehicle so you can see just how far it protrudes. Also, here's pictures of the truck, Prius, and Smart car. I just washed both of them so I thought I'd share the pictures. Yeah, I know the paint is peeling on the truck. I'm about to fix that, too. I went ahead and included the mockup of what I'm about to do to the truck too! It's getting it's mojo back! AWWWWWWW YISSSSSSS!

Update 9/3/2018 - I included a new picture of my truck and it looks totally sweet! I've decided against the decals simply because the simple black / white motif looks a little like a stormtrooper and I dig it.
