Can the iPod send the combined audio (iPod music file with added guitar input) via Bluetooth to wireless stereo headphones like the BackBeat 903?

  • I don't know because I haven't tried this exact combination, but I wanted to pass on to you my experience using the BackBeat bluetooth connection for practicing guitar. I have tried many manufacturer's products and have got a few different scenarios to "work" (ie, I could play my guitar and hear it in the headphones. I did this originally using the BackBeat analog transmitter meant for compatibility with non-Bluetooth MP3 players and phones.) The *hidden* problem you introduce in doing this, though, is even if you get it to work, the bluetooth connection introduces a few milliseconds of delay (anybody's product does.) For normal phone conversations you can't notice it (and for playback of music, it wouldn't matter), but for actually playing guitar and then hearing the sound you are used to hearing form the string instantly to now be delayed, the resulting effect can range from being mildly annoying to enough to make you crazy depending on your sensitivity to it. Just wanted to give you a "heads up" to watch out for this.

    BTW-- Based on my familiarity with each of these products, I think the answer is "yes" it would work in the scenario you described. I don't see why it wouldn't.
