Bluetooth audio

Transmitting stereo signals from a smartphone, tablet or other audio source to a receiver, such as a set of speakers or a vehicle's sound system.

This so-called Bluetooth Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) is a separate protocol from the Bluetooth Headset Profile (HSP) that is used for cellphone-to-headset transmission (for category details, see Bluetooth profiles).

Bluetooth audio (A2DP) removes even more data from MP3 files, which are already condensed (see SBC); however, other Bluetooth codecs improve the sound quality (see aptX). See Bluetooth speaker, AAC, MP3 and Bluetooth.
