Default Bluetooth ctx 3030

I found a way to make my ctx 3030 Bluetooth and it works great! Just thought I would share. The Bluetooth module seems to have 0 lag. I tried with the wired headphones on a target then the Bluetooth and response was identical. I will link everything below.

I also used some Velcro for the box that I picked up at Home Depot. Enjoy!

Is there a advantage over the stock wireless module ?

To me there is. I donít like having a wire off the headphones at all. It doesnít catch on anything.

Got it. I have a set of Senheiser rs160 I believe is the model number, I used on my Etrac and V3i, I also love how light they are. But with summer here, I'm about ready to move to ear buds.

The Sennheiser were absolutely without a doubt the most comfortable I've ever wore. Nice and light too.
