    Question 8800 w/HBH-DS970 Bluetooth Stereo Headset

    Advertisement



    I love my new 8800...and I was excited to get it setup as an mp3 player (with microsd support). So, I picked up a Motorola Stereo Bluetooth Headset (model HBH-DS970). I've used bluetooth phone headsets in the past (but not on this model) --- and I can pair up the devices and connect and all that -- but I can not, for the life of me, get any sound to come through those headset speakers.

    Any ideas???

    well welcome to the stacks, now on your device does it show on the main screen that it's connected? what file formats are you playing on your headset? do you have the volume all the way up?

    Damn it - I just saw a review on laptopmag.com (from Feb-07).

    Unfortunately, the 8800 lacks stereo Bluetooth support; you’ll need to use the bundled wired stereo headset to listen to music in private. (RIM promises that stereo Bluetooth capability will be added with an update of the 8800’s software later this year.)
    I wonder if the update might be out?

    Yes -- it showed connection (all normal). The files are mp3s. Yes, volume is up.

    Nope. A2DP will probably (no guarantee) come with 4.2.2 for the 8800.
