    Do wireless headphones exist for Blackberry Pearl 8100?
    Please note, I am trying to stream the music via bluetooth and don’t want to use headset, but instead the headphones that go over the head. I’ve heard that for the wireless headphones to work, the phone need to support A2DP profile. So, my question is, which model of wireless headphones will work with Pearl and where is the best place to buy it. Also, please list the model number if you know.
    Thank you!

    Wireless is great, but you can not use them on an airline. All wireless transmissions must be shut off during flight according to the FAA. It would really suck to get these, and not be able to use them while travelling IMO.

    Otherwise, very cool.

    They have a pair at my local Cingular store, but they don't work with the Pearl I was told.

    The problem isn't that the headphones aren't A2DP compatible (they have to be in order for them to work, lol.)

    The Pearl itself doesn't support A2DP, which means that no wireless headphones will work with the phone.

    I don't see a reason why RIM would not add A2DP in the future. The Bluetooth in the Pearl is already at version 2.0 with the Bluecore4 chip. Looking at the firmware it seems they used a product called BCHS to develop their Bluetooth firmware, that supports A2DP, it's only a question of RIM making the decision to include the A2DP profile. The 312MHz ARM9 CPU in the Pearl can easily do the conversion from mp3 to SBC. If we don't give and make our voice heard RIM might just do this.
