    Can someone recommend a good set of stereo bluetooth headphones that I could use with my 650? I'm not even sure if the audio playback on the 650 is in stereo, but I'd rather listen to mone through both ears than using an ear bud in one ear. Ideally the headphones would also have a mic in case I get an incoming call. I realize the 650 isn't exactly an ipod..but I hate carrying multiple devices and I just want the ability to listen to tunes while I go out walking or jogging - since I carry my phone with me everywhere.

    Thanks,

    Varrus.

    Read this from the Palm Knowledgebase - especially the bit at the bottom headed, "Treo 650's Bluetooth implementation does not support these Bluetooth profiles".

    Cool thanks. I guess I'll just get regular headphones and the little adapter for my 'music' purposes. It'll leave me money for a good blue tooth mic! thanks.

    One question though, the 650 uses bluetooth 1.1, is this something that can eventually be 'firmware' updated??

    Motorola HT820

    Item Code: HT820

    $129.95

    As the first headset of its kind on the market, the Motorola HT820 wirelessly connects to a Bluetooth wireless-enabled phone and a separate music source simultaneously promising that users can enjoy favorite songs without missing a call. Music automatically pauses when a call comes in and when the call ends, the music resumes play. The intuitive headset features controls for both the music source and mobile phone making it easy to play, pause or stop a favorite song, as well as receive, answer or end calls wirelessly.

    If the A2DP bounty produces a Treo stereo solution, will they still work in the same way for the Treo as a single device for phone calls & stereo playback?

    This device looks interesting but to me it looks like you need two blue tooth devices - one for music and one for phone services...if this is the case then its not what i had in mind...i just want to carry my treo...

    So, someone said that even if you have a bluetooth stereo headset with the Treo 650, it won't play the music through it.

    Then someone posted that motorola stereo headset and it seems to indicate that you need a separate music playing device.

    Now, I have a wired stereo hybrid headset that allows me to listen to stereo MP3s on my Treo650 as well as take calls (and hear them in both ears, which is quite nice). It pauses the music when a call comes in and then starts it back up when the call ends. It's great.

    BUT I'd like to do so wirelessly.
    so maybe the best solution is one of those bluetooth headsets that is wireless and plugs into the treo650 in the headset jack? I know, still a pain to have that plug in the jack but if the phone is just sitting in your bag or on the deck, not bad.

    BUT: will the headset ring, too?

    Hmmm....
    If anyone has info or links, please let me know..

    If you don't mind, what model is your wired hybrid. I don't necessarily care if it's wired or not, but the automatic pause/play feature on calls is a necessity. Thanks for any info.

    Maybe I'm way off base here, but when looking at Info-->Version for the Bluetooth stack, it says Version 2.0...does this not mean it's 2.0??

    I found this thead after two nights of jogging with the 600 ruined the wire connections on my Seidio 2-1 headset. I was thinking 650=blutooth=wireless stereo and pulled up this thread to my disappointment.

    I was wondering if anyone knows if Windows Mobile has Bluetooth 1.2 or greater support? I'm guessing YES which would give me another reason to wait for the Treo Windows Mobile version. It's just case of no one commiting to update POS to the latest technology while Microsoft is commits tons of resources into continually upgrading their OS for new technology.

    I like POS but it's just not keeping up with the times. And no seems to be able to fix that. We just want to jog and wirelessly listen MP3's. Is that asking too much? Can an iPod do it?

    Two nights exposure to the atmosphere will ruin the connectors on a Seidio headset.

    This means the second version of the bluetooth 1.1 stack...not that it is a 1.2 bluetooth stack, which is what we need for a stereo headset profile.

    I've noticed. I had the original replaced twice within a year and here we are again. I'm looking for something better and if you've found anything please give me a heads up.

    Sorry to say I haven't. I am quite interested in this setup though;

    But of course, that will be for the 700w when it comes down in price next century.

    Yeah that is pretty sweet. I am guessing the Bluetooth sled for the 600 doesn't support it either?

    I am going to buy this as a stopgap measure for jogging. I won't be able to get my phone calls but I can still the jogging.

    It is the TDK Mojo Headphones. Wireless headphones with an FM player and MP3 player built in. Sounds like the 128 MB built in memory is useless but it will support external SD cards of up to 512 MB for regular MP3's. I still have one left over from before I upgraded my 600 to a 1 GB card that is just collecting dust right now. It is on sale for $85 and has a $50 mail in rebate. For $35 you just can't beat it. More than enough for jogging.

    Not bad. Definitely a good deal since you have the 512 to use in it.

    It's not as good as my Treo. The navigation is very clumsy without and LED to display title names. But for jogging it has gotten the job done. Now I'll just sit back and wait for technology to catch up with what we want.

    BTW, Windows Mobile 5.0 does not support Bluetooth stereo either but they are planning a feature release to upgrade it. Remember when those types of things happened for POS back in III era?

    Well, I won't even think of getting the TreoW until it supports BT stereo headphones, much less comes down below $400.
