    I know that Apt-x for WP8.1.1 is brand new, but I wanted to start a discussion about Apt-x compatible Bluetooth devices. I noticed that there is not very strong Apt-x support from major tech companies.

    I am looking at buying this device as it will work great in the car and with my favorite pair of ear-buds: Amazon.com: BlueAnt RB-BKBL-US Ribbon Stereo Bluetooth Streamer- Bluetooth Headset - Retail Packaging - Black/Blue: Cell Phones & Accessories

    Let me (and others) know about your experience with Apt-x capable devices, including, but not limited to, speakers, headphones, adapters, and car kits.

    Maybe this thread can be stickied by an admin too!

    I use the Kinivo BTC450 in my car and I absolutely love it. It remembers my device and automatically connects each time I start my car, it works with Cortana, and supports lossless music over Bluetooth with apt-x. You'll need 8.1 GDR1 for apt-x though.

    I play Music/ MixRadio from my 1020 Cyan 8.1 GDR1 with a pair of Play360.
    Sounds great so far.
    the only complain is the WP audio control EQ is not launchable when the device is connected to BT since ever. This is stupid.

    The following Nokia products support aptX:

    • Nokia (JBL) PlayUp portable battery-powered Bluetooth speaker
    • Nokia (Monster) Purity Pro Bluetooth stereo headset


    Yes, I have all of those.

    Are you sure about the Purity Pro? I have it but can't find anything about aptX in the manual and neither on the website from Nokia...

    Never mind! On the box of the device seems to be a logo with Aptx. Didn't know!

    Just as an FYI, There is now a BTC-455 which allows you to pair 2 devices simultaneously
    Kinivo BTC455 Bluetooth Hands-Free Car Kit for Cars with Aux Input Jack (3.5 mm) - Supports aptX and Multi-point Connectivity : Accessories

    Just ordered one! Glad I found this thread. I've been looking for a better bluetooth-to-3.5mm solution for my car.
