Any experiences or recommendations for Bluetooth audio transmitters (3.5mm to Bluetooth)?

I'd like to be able to use Bluetooth headphones (LG Tone HBS-700) while watching TV on the treadmill. The TV in question has a 3.5mm jack, so I'm looking for a Bluetooth audio transmitter dongle. I've found a bunch on Amazon with widely mixed reviews. Many say there is a long lag, making them unacceptable for television (due to poor sync). Any firsthand experiences or other recommendations? It looks like a bunch of companies made these a few years ago (the long-discontinued Jabra A120s has very good reviews), but current options seem limited (aside from a few refurb Jabra units.) Obviously, less expensive is better than more, and I'd think $50 (the cost of the refurb Jabra) is probably my upper limit, though if you have a great alternative, feel free to toss it out there. Thanks in advance!
