Top 10 Best FM Transmitter for iPhone - Reviews

1. Nulaxy Bluetooth Car FM Transmitter, Model No: KM28 Black - Editor’s Choice

Features

  • Compatible to: iPhones and most android brands.
  • Plays via: Bluetooth, AUX, USB and TF.

Review

There are two versions of Nulaxy transmitters available. The sporty ones come with more advanced functionalities and compact look compared to the gooseneck one. Once you experience KM28 transmitter, you will realize, listening music through a transmitter has never been easier.

KM28 can play music in 4 ways. Other than Bluetooth and AUX, it accepts USB and TF cards. You will have the flexibility to listen the latest release endlessly with ‘repeat’ or ‘shuffle’ your favorite tracks or let the device play in the ‘normal’ mode; depending on your mood.

Your phone will not drain due to constant playing over Bluetooth, because you can keep it charged with the included charging port. You will also be aware all the time about the condition of your car battery due to the voltmeter of this transmitter. Nulaxy is our top pick due to its availability in a super tiny budget despite of all these features.

Things We Liked

  • 3 modes of music playing;
  • High compatibility;
  • Economic.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • No option to ‘shut off’.

2. Nulaxy Wireless in-Car Bluetooth FM Transmitter Car Kit

Features

  • Compatible to: Apple devices Samsung, Xiaomi, Oppo, Sony and many more.
  • Plays music via: Bluetooth, AUX and SD card;

Review

This transmitter is highly compatible to almost every brand of smartphones. You can pair several phones without any hassle to this device, and it will remember those pairs forever! However, this device from Nulaxy once can pair to one at a time.

The best part is, even if you have a phone with defective Bluetooth, you can still play your favorite songs from that using the AUX port. A goose neck makes rotating this device convenient.

You can also choose to use a SD card instead to avoid using your phone every time you hop on your car. This transmitter does everything it is meant to do in an affordable price range. Like other transmitters, this one also is useful to monitor your car battery voltage and charge USB devices.

The drawback is, it can’t be turned off. You have to unplug it to turn it off and save your car battery. This is not any major complains, but if you expect these from your transmitter, this one is surely not for you.

Things We Liked

  • Highly compatible;
  • Affordable;
  • Has caller ID.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • No off button.

Features

Review

Want a transmitter which can pair a pair of devices simultaneously? Then flexSMART for GOgroove is the right choice for you. Its multi point mode enables pairing two devices (say, office and personal phone) at a time. Listening to music and answering a phone has never been easier!

It comes with a flexible gooseneck, that can turn this transmitter any direction possible without a hitch. Besides, it is made surprisingly user friendly with its on board controls. The advantage is, you don’t have press one button several times to reach somewhere; there are several buttons for your easy access to different functionalities.

You have to pay few more bucks to own it, compared to other transmitter on this list. But we always do, to own quality items, don’t we? By paying the extra, you will have a device protected by a long warranty, so that it won't give you a headache for years to come.

Things We Liked

  • Flexible neck
  • Can pair 2 devices at a time;
  • Crystal clear sound quality;
  • Long lasting;
  • Covered by long warranty.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • No Noticeable Cons.

4. JETech Wireless FM Transmitter Radio Car Kit

Features

  • Plays via Bluetooth;
  • Compatible to smartphones;

Review

Basic functions with less important add ons, this transmitter has won hearts of its users. It looks and works like a MP3. hence, it is needless to say that, operating this device is super easy.

It comes with a charging port so that while playing music or book, your device never drain away all its power you need. Portability is another feature that makes this transmitter popular. Just place it in your pants pocket and travel the world!

What this transmitter can’t do is, pairing to devices through Bluetooth. It does not have any, works with headphone jack like a MP3, ensuring better connection than Bluetooth. To answer calls, you have to receive the calls for your phone manually. Any call receiving functionality has not been added to this device; that is the only drawback of this transmitter in my opinion.

Things We Liked

  • Portable;
  • Economic;
  • High compatibility;
  • Easy functions;
  • Lifetime warranty.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Answering calls is not hands free with this.

5. Handsfree Call Car Charger,Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter Radio Receiver by LIHAN

Features

  • Plays via Bluetooth, USB & TF;
  • Compatible to any Bluetooth device.

Review

Affordability has been meshed with advancement in this transmitter from LIHAN. It is basically a Bluetooth transmitter, compatible to Bluetooth devices only. The two charging ports are proven to be a lifesaver when you and your partner both want to use the charger from the transmitter.be sure to connect to the correct one, because one port is 3A for latest phones and other one is 1A, for USB flash drives.

 You can switch from Bluetooth to TF card and USB easily just by pressing one button. Tuning to FM is also a breeze with this device. The CVC cancellation technology has proven to be efficient to filter noises from music. So, you get pure and authentic music every time.

It runs only on Bluetooth and once the Bluetooth either your handset or the transmitter wears out, this machine becomes useless. However, the manufacturer of this transmitter is less renowned; hence this quality product with the latest features is available in a reasonable price. This surely is the best deal for your bucks. 

Things We Liked

  • 2 charging ports;
  • Energy efficient;
  • Declairs power on and voltage level;
  • Affordable.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • Installation is not easy.

6. Aphaca Wireless Bluetooth FM Transmitter

Features

  • Plays via Bluetooth and USB;
  • Compatible to Bluetooth devices;

Review

Most of the Bluetooth compatible transmitters don’t provide sound quality as good as transmitters with cable connection compatibility. You will never face that problem with Aphaca transmitter. Its wireless connectivity delivers sound quality even better than wired ones.

In addition, the most fascinating feature to me about this transmitter is, its smart car locator functions. It works with an app, installed to your handset to let you know the parking position of your car, time and distance from your location. It is a feature can only be found in the latest models of AUDI cars. Aphaca transmitter lets you have the experience in old model vehicles.

While other transmitter comes with buttoned functions, this one has a handy knob to tune channel, set volume and select the songs. When your can battery has a low voltage, this device notifies you by ringing an alarm. For all the features, the price a bit on the higher side, but seemed reasonable.

Things We Liked

  • Amazing sound quality;
  • Comes with smart car locator;
  • Easy turn knob control;
  • Covers up to 108 MHz;
  • 2 charging port.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • No Noticeable Cons.

Features

  • Plays via: Bluetooth and USB;

Review

A call button in the transmitter and built in mic with CVC lets you experience ultimate hands free calling without the interference of wind and noise. With two charging ports, Criacr transmitters ensure the power of your devices is never down.

This transmitter is also awesome as a radio. It covers a wider band compared to other transmitters available on market. It works with USB and Bluetooth; so, you can store your favorite tracks in SD card for listening music and use your phone for calls only.

Some users mentioned the bad frequency if you put your phone too far from the transmitter. A few complained about wearing off the device within months. Instead of these matters, it is still a good pick for budget. It is covered by excellent refund and warranty options.

Things We Liked

  • Two USB charging ports;
  • Wider range of radio frequency;
  • Noise and echo suppression;
  • Budget friendly.

Things We Didn’t Like

  • May not be long lasting.

A 1.44 inches LED makes operating Otium transmitter easy to install and use. It shows everything if works on that includes your car battery voltage, called id, song, volume, fm channel, connect information and many more.

This transmitter has a goose neck so that you can move the device according to your convenience. The charging port can feed android, i phone and even power banks. With this, you can tune channels from  87.5 to 108 Mhz frequency at a breeze.
