    I guess normal would be using it just like a normal bluetooth headset to answer / end calls, etc..

    Got mine to work finally. The trick was to let it run out completely of juice, then fully charge (took about an hour and a half to fully charge).... it's pretty nice. Sound quality is very good - clear and crisp. I'm a bit skeptical on the range of the unit, but as long as my phone is within a few feet, it works great. You have to pair it first, camel, and then pass control to SAG so you can use ptunes.

    From 'off' hold the button down until both red and blue led's are flashing, then attempt the pairing from the treo's bluetooth wizard.

    If you get out of range, just go back to the SAG menu and click Remote. it will pair up again.

    Thanks Micael.
    Doh! i just fully charged mines.. Darn it now I have to wait for a discharge.

    Question though, what happens if you have it nearby and you're jogging?
    say a foot or two. would you get cut off?

    I purchased SAG today, thanks for the confirmation.

    a foot or two is nothing. interestingly, if I turn my back to the treo with the unit pinned to my shirt pocket, I lose contact. bluetooth seems to like line of sight. But then again, I'm fairly thick

    Ok i got it to work.
    I might post a review later on.
    Connecting to the treo was easy. You didnt have to let the juice run out.
    I just didnt know how to make the light blink red and blue at the same time.
    I held the power button on the side for 8 seconds or so and it went into that mode.
    Then it worked flawlessly from the treo.

    The quality is great. I just didnt like the phones that came with it. They are cheap. I used my sony psp headphone since i dont like in-ear headphones.

    range was no problem for me. It suits my needs perfectly.

    Microphone works great, with one caveat... it clips onto you clothing, so if you're walking or jiggling around, the listener hears noise as the unit jostles or bounces against your clothes.

    If you're sitting, it works great. Worked great in my car. For the price, and the ability to do stereo music, I am very satisfied so far. I'll provide updates on any issues I run it to.

    On a somewhat related note, I did have some issues with the unit, as mentioned earlier. It turned out to be a simple solution, e.g., let the unit fully charge before your first pairing. But be advised that I sent questions to both the manufacturer, and to the vendor that I bought it from.

    The manufacturer, http://www.usglobalsat.com, responded with the correct solution in less than 12 hours.

    The vendor that I bought the BTH-820 from, http://www.buygpsnow.com/ *still* hasn't responded, days later.

    Wow, I totally missed the microphone as part of the setup... this seems to be quite the deal! I'm frequently listening to music on my Treo, and then have to disconnect my headphones from the phone and pick it up whenever somebody calls. I've resisted the bt headset up to this point because I don't actually spend much time talking on the phone, and more time using the PDA abilities of the 650. Plus I still think its weird when people are "talking to themselves" or just walking around with a thing on their ear, but that's probably just me. Anyone see the beer commercial where the rather attractive woman is talking to someone on a headset, and some schlub thinks she's talking to him? yeah, that would be something I would do. hooray for technology enabling embarassing situations!

    Hey Camel, you've had it a couple of days now. Verdict?

    Wow that SE HBH-DS970 looks nice. It even has Plantronics' multipoint technology built into it.

    Too bad you can't use it with any headphones you want. It doesn't have a 3.5mm headphone jack and the headphones attached to it are permanently attached.

    So for all you BTH-820 owners, how has the 820 performed so far? Any new problems pop up since you've had it?

    I have just ordered my Sony Ericsson HBH-DS970 bluetooth stereo headset and it should arrive within 5 business days.

    http://www.electronicell.com/shop/item.asp?itemid=217

    The total cost including shipping was $126.98. After loading the Softick Audio Gateway application and hopefully successful pairing with my Treo 650, I'll post the results.

    That is true about not being able to use different headphones with the LED controller. But from the very positve reviews I have read on various forums regarding the sound quality, comfort, and fit of the earbuds, I'll take the plunge and be the " tester " for those interested in such a headset for our Treo's.

    These headphones by the way are of the same quality that are being shipped with all those new SE Walkman phones, ( W800i, W810i, W710i, etc.) SE definitely knows how to make music phones so this should be a fantastic product as long as there are no compatibility issues with SAG.

    I did write to the makers of SAG about these bluetooth headphones regarding compatibility so hopefully as the beginning of the thread stated..... " This could be the coolest headset ever ".... holds true.
