I work once a year as volunteer security and we have radios that we clip onto our belts with the mouthpiece up on our shoulder for easy access but we are required to bring our own ear buds so that no one else can hear our communications in case of an emergency (To not cause panic). Anyway, I have a pair of new wireless ear buds (Two separate pieces, one for each ear) and I was wondering if any such device existed that would allow me to possibly plug a third party device via auxiliary cable and connect via Bluetooth to that device. Not sure if I am asking for a tech that just cant exist or if its been something super obvious the entire time, please help me out!

That seems rather expensive for occasional use though. Doing a search on Amazon for "3.5mm bluetooth adapter" brings up some better priced options...

If you're using an included microphone connected to the radio, and only using the bluetooth for the headphones, then you probably don't need a unit that can transmit and receive audio at the same time, and an inexpensive device like these might potentially work. I don't have any firsthand experience with using bluetooth audio transmitters like these though. I would of course read reviews to make sure they are what you're looking for.

if said device has a 3.5 jack this is usable. 8 hours of battery life. check out their other items...maybe one can fit your need.

normally you can type in google or amazon plug size than your adapter to X. for example lets say you looking for a 3.5 to BT
type 3.5 to BT or 3.5 adapter BT. keep it simple so more results can be found in Amazon/newegg/googe/etc.

hopefully my item listed can work if not..maybe you will find it.
