Bluetooth audio monitoring - Brilliant or stupid?

Recommended Posts

I've got a pair of bose qc35's that I have been using with a 1/8" cable on shoots to monitor audio (love the noise cancellation to figure out what I'm hearing in the mics vs my own ears) but since they're bluetooth I'm thinking why not take advantage of that and use a battery powered transmitter? I accidentally pull on the audio cable at least once a shoot it seems like, and I wouldn't have to keep taking off my headphones when I go check a light, etc...

Am I missing any negatives I haven't considered?

This is the kind of product I'd buy: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1218934-REG/meelectronics_af_t1_bk_mee_af_t1_dual_headphone_bluetooth_audio.html

I've not done exactly this but I used a Bluetooth audio monitoring system in the context of a theatre show and to be honest it was a massive pain in the ass.

It's fine when it works but being a consumer system there will be an occasion when it won't and it becomes an unnecessary source of aggravation. Cables are cheap, simple and idiot proof.
