Welcome to the boards!
The current OS version you are using does not have EQ or tone settings for the media player. I don't remember what the deal is with your mp3 issues. I'm sure someone will chime in with a solution. I use WMA most of the time anyway without problems.
The good news is that 4.5 is around the corner and greatly improves the media player IMHO. It also offers multiple eq settings although for the headset only.
As for bluetooth. Your BB supports Headset (HSP), Hands-Free (HFP) and Audio/Video Remote Control (AVRCP). I almost for got A2DP for stereo audio.
These profiles allow you to control basic media ( Play,Pause,Stop,ETC ) player controls from the headset. It gives you the handy option of pausing a song for a call and resuming automaticlly when the call ends.
I never messed with xPlayer seeing how I never felt the need for it.
Hope this helps.

So then I thought "Go for it" and grabbed 22.214.171.124 OS (BlackBerry Handheld Software v126.96.36.199 (Multilanguage)). I was up past midnight trying to get it installed but finally figured it out this morning.
The Media Player is great (much more features than before) except the volume doen't go anywhere near as loud as in the previous version. (I hopeful to find a work around => hint!!).
I'm really pleased you can now skip forward or back (to the next tune) by just holding the volume up/down key. The EQ is cool but I still can't figure out how to get it to play from Folders rather than Mp3 Tags (?). Mobiola xPlayer sees 'em but I can't get it to work at all.
Perhaps one of the experts here can help me figure this out.
Thanks for the assist.
