I have an older desktop (Win10 x64) that I mainly use. The MB does NOT have bluetooth support and I'd like to add BT 5. What are my options today, what should I be aware of, what's good/bad? All the BT devices I currently have are BT4 and I'm hoping that when Sony released the next version of their wireless headset (sony wh1000xm4) it will support BT5. I want BT5 because of the distance the headset can be from the PC and maintain the connection.
If possible I'd like to pair my hearing aids to the BT 5 adapter. Currently they are paired to my BT 4 Samson Galaxy Note 8 phone.

If you invest on a BlueTooth 5 adapter, it'll be backwards compatible with BlueTooth 4 devices which means you can pair them without issue. Also, where are you located, what is your budget for an adapter and what is your preferred site for purchase? To note, would you be interested in an add-on card or an add-on USB driven adapter? Are you looking at a combo BT + WiFi card?
