    Question Bluetooth Stereo Headphones?

    Advertisement



    Might be a stupid question but I'm new, so I'm allowed one, right?

    I would like to know if some of the newer bluetooth stereo headsets available will work with the 8100? If so, do you have any recommendations? (ok, that was two questions, but you may not have had to answer the second...)

    I have attempted to use two different sets of wired headphones (earbuds) with my 8100, a set requiring the proper adapter to fit the smaller plug, and a much more expensive set of earbuds which came with the proper size plug. I am no longer able to hear anything through the earphone jack with either set of earbuds when using the media player.

    I use a bluetooth device for conversations, but before purchasing the stereo headphones, I want to make sure they will work with the Pearl.

    Thank you.

    I thought AD2P wasn't supported in 4.2? Don't we first gens have to wait for 4.3?

    He is talking about the Pearl 8100, not the 8310r you have. If you have a 8100, you will have to wait for the release of 4.3/4.5 to have the A2DP BT profile to use bluetooth stereo headphones. 4.2 currently has no support for that profile.

    lol, not a problem, it's understandable considering you have a diff model. Nah, I don't have a higher ranking, I just have less of a life, and spend more times posting :P.

    So, my answer for now is no. How do I upgrade my OS when the newer version comes out?
