Default has anyone tried stereo bluetooth for mp3's?

Please Login to Remove!

While I am waiting for my phone to be shipped I already ordered a set of stereo bluetooth headphones for the gym and i was curious how the sound clarity is for stereo bluetooth? Anyone tried it yet? I ordered the Jabra bt-3030 headphones.

I have the Motorola S9 BT stereo headphones and they work like a champ. They sound the same as if I had wired head phones on.

The ones that came with the phone aren't too bad, if you aren't using them all the time. I bought a car charger and a hard case for my phone, and got these other headphones for free, and they are a lot better...

I use the Seinheiser headphones and they are great. I do find every once in a while bluetooth will drop the signal, but I think this is a feature! They sound great.

Is there anything that needs to be done to listen to the BT headphones when in Music mode?

I thought I would be able to hear songs through my Jawbone but no, even while connected for the phone, the audio comes through on the device speaker.

Make sure the bluetooth supports a2dp. I am surprised Jawbone wouldn't but I don't know.

The Jawbone doesn't support a2dp. As far as I know, no mono bluetooth headsets supports a2dp.

I use the Venturi Mini in my car to pull the stereo bluetooth signal from my phone and pipe it through my car's FM stereo. Sounds great, although the area I live in (NYC area) has virtually no unused FM frequencies, so from time to time I do run into interference from radio stations.

One of the things I found out yesterday is that while you cannot have multiple bluetooth connections active simultaneously (i.e. multiple bluetooth headsets), I can use the Venturi Mini to pipe the music through my stereo via bluetooth and use my bluetooth headset simultaneously.

When the Venturi Mini attempts to pair to the phone upon startup, it will pair and then you can't pair up the headset. However, if you pair up the headset first, and then the Venturi Mini attempts to pair, it will fail because the headset is already in use. But if you manually set the Venturi Mini to pair up after the initial failure, then it pairs up successfully, but only using the a2dp profile. Voila, you can hear your tunes through the Venturi Mini, but then still have your BT headset for calls instead of having to rely on the Mini's speakerphone.

I bought a set of Motorola HT820's that were relatively inexpensive (around $45.00) and sound great.
