    I'm not sure if it's the phone or headset(lg tones).

    Before I had a DROID razr (not maxx) and a Sony Ericsson bt stereo headset and I could literally move 5 times further away then my current setup.

    What kind of range are you getting?

    BlueTooth range varies a lot by manufacturer of the headset, and there are other factors that can influence range... I have a 4-5 year old Plantronics Voyager 510 that I use with my Rezound, usable range is about 25-30 feet from the Rezound, which was about the same with my LG enV Touch, Samsung Stratosphere, and HTC Incredible 2 with the same exact headset.

    I could be way off on this, but if memory serves me correctly, there is a high and low power implementation of BT for audio (headset) devices, the range is a huge jump between the two.

    Yes but even the range of a2dp is device dependent. My old Jabra 620 and 3030 can be , easily, up to 100' away but my Jawbone Icon and Jaybirds are 30' max before breaking up terribly when playing music (a2dp). This on multiple phones and tablets.

    With my old setup (razr/Sony bt headset) I got about 100 or so.

    Current setup rezound /lg tones I get maybe 20 feet if I'm lucky.

    My 620 has huge range on the Rezound. The 3030 is, very sadly, no more so I can't check.

    It's definitely the Rezound, tried it with my Samsung tab 2 7.0 and range is farther with no cutting out.

    I only have 1 Bluetooth device, kanex airblue. kanex claims it has a 33ft range, I can get maybe 10ft before the music starts to cut out. I always thought it was the kanex, now i'm not so sure.

    With my Motorola s10HD headset I can get about 10 yards away give or take a couple feet.

    A lot depends on Bluetooth version. If you have devices that run BT Ver. 3.0 the range is up to 300 ft. The new BT 4.0 is BT Smart, & BT Smart Ready, a few highend Phones come with it already.

    Also, remember to get this range you will need to have BlueTooth v4.0 compliant device, otherwise with a v3.0 or earlier device the range is similar to the Rezound.

    My range is pretty good with my BlueParrot Expressway. I can get just about 15-20ft LOS before it starts getting staticy.

    Yeah, my Plantronics Voyager 510 is about the same, 20'-25' or so then it starts getting noisy, and that is a BlueTooth v1.2 device! Although it is pushing 5 or 6 years old and getting to a point it doesn't hold a charge like it used too, and some people are saying they hear a hiss when I am talking on it, might look at replacing it soon. We have a couple people who have tried the Voyager Pro HD and Voyager Legend from Plantronics and love them (we are a Plantronics dealer), will probably look at one of those.
