Well it wasn't going to be long before someone started to create some useful audio devices for Bluetooth. HP have a set of BT Headphones, and a lot of PDAs and other devices support the A2DP BT profile. This should allow them to broadcast the audio wirelessly to a receiver.

GlobalSat have provided us early details of two devices: The BTH-820 Bluetooth Headset, and the BTA-830 a BT Audio Gateway.

For me the BTH-820 Bluetooth Headset is the more exciting product of the two, as it provides a stereo headphone function together with a microphone. In theory this should also be capable of being plugged into a normal hi-fi system to play digital music over BT. This, of course, would include navigation instructions from your PDA. A much more interesting application for me would be to connect to my 4700 and give me wireless capabilities for Pocket Skype.

The BTA-830 plugs into a PDA, iPod, mobile phone or other device that does not offer Bluetooth connectivity to turn it into a Bluetooth audio transmitter.

Interesting devices, but where are they avail from - I have tried various links and drawn a blank each time - I am interested in the headset unit any leads would be appreciated - nice kit, I bet you don't want to give it back if you managed to get Skype working on the trust worthy 4700? - Mike

I dont know the pricing, or have any idea at the moment.

I know the sort of Xmas presents you mean. Although I normally get mine before Xmas. It often helps to give it to her, then use it when she realises she has no use for it... Confused

nice idea but i'd be more interested in using it a wireless headphones for my mp3 player (creative zen xtra - yes, there is more to mp3 players than the ipod...)

that way i could set up my playlists etc then just keep the player hidden in my bag and not as easy to nick from my pocket!

You can with this setup. They only use the iPOD as an example.

i'd grasped that mike, it's just a pet peeve of mine that the media seem to call any mp3 player an ipod Smile

cheers

Well up until recently I have been very happy with my WMA player (read Laptop) then I got a Creative MUVO N200 still can play the WMA no problem. I just got a JVC KD-AVX1 and found that it is not possible to play DRM protected WMAs.

Bummer. I am now in the process of re-ripping 10Gb of digital music. As far as I am concerned I will not be using Microsoft Digital Music formats again.
