Is this possible?
As long as your Bluetooth headset is A2DP compatible, yes. I often listen to streaming audio over my Jawbone Icon Bluetooth earpiece.
I have a plantronics 510. How can I tell if this allows it? I am not a techie.....so please keep it simple.
OK, according to this thread Routing audio to Bluetooth Headset (non-A2DP) on Android - Stack Overflow, your headset doesn't support the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), sending all audio from the Bluetooth host to the Bluetooth client - i.e. phone to headset. See Bluetooth profile - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia for more information. In its stock mode, it can only receive audio meant to have come from the "phone", or phone call audio.
The guy in the first link above was trying to figure out how to essentially hack the Android OS to make it do just what you want. There may have been some success, however the link below is for a product (app) that apparently is able to software hack the OS into "fooling" it, thereby sending "other" audio sources through the portal that only phone call audio is supposed to pass through to Bluetooth headsets that aren't A2DP compatible. The link has a "trial" free version to try it and see if it works for your phone and headset before you pay for the full version. Give it a try. Otherwise, it's time to upgrade to A2DP technology, another headset.

Good luck! :biggrin:
You think they would made a way to switch stereo to mono, so any Bluetooth could be used for music or videos and police scanner aps, i know i wanted this on my old dx, but never found a way to pull it off

The problem is not that it's stereo going to mono. The issue is that the Bluetooth profile of the headset was never designed to support audio from any other source except the phone's audio source. The tool above essentially ports the other audio sources through the Phone's audio port, thereby fooling the Bluetooth profile in the phone into playing the audio as though it were a phone call. From what I've seen this tool (app) above would work with many phones that didn't have A2DP built in, but there are others as well which may provide similar functionality;
Thanks foxkat, i went with btmono on my razr, works great, tried it on netflix, and scanner radio and it worked perfect.
