    Hi,

    I was wondering if it is possible to get a fully compatible stereo bluetooth headset for the Treo 650. By fully compatible, I mean that it would play mp3s in stereo, allow phone calls (talk and listen) and correctly start and stop the play during phone calls. Also, no extra plug ins required.

    In other words, work just the same as regular stereo headphones.

    I understand that there have been a series of problems with this on the Treo 650, but was wondering if they're all resolved.

    Thanks!

    You do realize, don't you, that you'll need to buy SAG for such a headset to work with your Treo?

    Yes, but I have read that the micrphone still doesn't work (so much for phone calls). I guess what I'm asking the group is the larger question: Is it possible to get a fully compatible stereo bluetooth headset to work with the Treo 650, and if so how?

    By fully compatible, I mean that it would play mp3s in stereo, allow phone calls (talk and listen) and correctly start and stop the play during phone calls. Also, no extra plug ins (dongles, etc) required.

    In other words: Can a bluetooth headset be made to function exactly like a regular wired stereo headset on the Treo 650?

    If so, then yes, I'd like to know exactly what product(s) are required to achieve this.

    Implementation od stereo music (A2DP) on the Treo's is always work-in-progress. SAG has done a great job (in my opinion) in doing what everyone had thought was impossible when the Treo 650 was released.

    You can read about many experiences with different headsets, various Treo's, firmware versions etc in

    I, for one, am happy with the Motorola S9 .. which was reviewed just yesterday at TC.

    Thanks for the links. It seems like it is not quite there for Verizon Treo 650 yet (SAG 1.12 lockups, other issues) and pricy too. Think that I'll just stay with my 650 & wired headphones and probably run them into the ground. Then I'll look around for the latest/greatest Treo with a native A2DP (and > 2 gig SD card) and do it in a more supported way.

    Thanks... I appreciate it!

    I recently purchased a Sony Ericsson Stereo Bluetooth Headset that is suppose to do what you need. My problem is that the instructions say that I need to choose the Bluetooth headset in the player software but the pre-installed Real Player has no option. Is there a player that allows the choice of audio output? The headset works well on the phone but does not do music at all. Help me so I can help you???

    The selection of the Bluetooth headset is done in SAG (Softick Audio Gateway). With the headset paired and on, when you select "Stream to A2DP Device" in SAG, it will attempt to connect and transfer control to the headset. Works great for me on my 650. (Phone calls and music)
