I have the Logitech equivalent product. I found the best way to use it is by
plugging a short extension (or, in the case of my Sony Ericsson P910, a
reduction) cable between the player and the dongle. I also use a small piece
of velcro to attach it to my MP3-enabled portable CD player.
Not to the Sony Ericsson, though: its back cover is quite flimsy.

One caveat (at least for the Logitech): the BT connection is somewhat fiddly
and even having too big a part of your body (yes, yes, insert tasteless joke
of choice here) between dongle and headphones can cause the connection to
become erratic. Other than that: a beautiful product.

(BTW, I bought it in a shop for 110 euro, so the eBay deal appears to be not
tht great)
