    Post How can one listen to music with their bluetooth?

    Maybe it's just my old Plantronics Explorer 220 Headset but I can't figure out how to use it to listen to music. I can only use it while on calls...my headset doesn't even ring when somebody calls, the phone does. The bluetooth headset rang in my ear with my 3 year old LG flip-phone though.

    Any ideas?

    My phone is the Moto Droid.

    Hi kscdj,

    I was looking into this myself earlier. It seems bluetooth headsets have gone some upgrades since I used them last (I have an old plantronics 320 I never really used). If I am not mistaken, then in order to listen to media through a bluetooth headset, it will need to have A2DP.

    Bluetooth profile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Do a search of the forums for more info.

    The A2DP profile for Bluetooth sets supports Stereo sound. I suggest finding a set of Bluetooth Headphones. I purchased the Motorola S805's (DJ-style, over the ear) on eBay a while back for a relatively cheap fee and they work well. The Motorola S9's (workout-style, earbud/behind-the-head) also work well for stereo music and video sound, not to mention are water/sweat-resistant for the gym/walking/running.

    I've been hard-pressed to find other sets of headphones that I like, for both style and brand name-based reliability - not that Motorola has always been on the right side of the fence there either, but still.

    My bluetooth Sony DRBT100CX/SLV Ear Bud plays music just fine. Paired it to the Droid and everything worked right out of the box.

    I just recently purchased the Jabra Halo stereo headset for listening to music on my Droid and bluetooth calling. I could not be happier! It is very easy to use and I would highly recommend it! I did a full review and posted pictures on it in the accesories forum about 2 weeks ago if you want to look it up. I would post the link but I'm at work writing this from my DROID!

    The Jabra BT3030 works well too. It's nice because it's just a dongle with a microphone and buttons, you can plug the headphones of your choice into it.

    Is there any way to have a regular mono bluetooth headphone play music or video media? I have a motorola h390 and i can use it for phone calls but I'd like to know if there is software or a hack so I can use it for media as well...

    Over the last several years I have gone threw 5 or 6 bluetooth headsets and it just depended on the headset weather it worked for music or not. cheap ones or expensive ones dont matter just some wont.

    This is just my experience with headsets
