Default Any Device to Multicast Bluetooth?

I would like to have a way to play a tune on a tablet computer and have two
or three people all listen to it while wearing different bluetooth headsets.
The problem is Bluetooth today seems to be designed as a point to point
technology for a single listener. Does anyone make a device that would
plug to the player using a 3.5mm jack or acquire the signal by Bluetooth,
then generate multiple independent outgoing Bluetooth streams that could be
paired with different headsets?

I'm looking for a similar solution - practical application is to enable a couple or group of dancers to listen using individual headsets.

Best solution so far is to use a 3.5 Y adapter to single bluetooth dongles (transmitters/source) that pair with headsets individually. These dongles are available from ebay for about $25USD each.

Alternatively linux using pulse audio has an output option to stream to all output devices, unfortunately this is not perfectly simultaneous.

Another solution I'm looking into is getting an android device to pair and send to multiple A2DP devices.

Class 1: 100m range would be preferred.

Anyone else with better solutions?
