Bluetooth Headphones

Has anyone got their playbook to work with bluetooth headphones?

 

My torch works fine with my new MM100 head phones, but not on the playbook.

 

Playbook pairs with them but music doesn't play in them.

 

Any help would be appreciated.

 

David.

 

PS love the playbook, using it all the time.

Re: Bluetooth Headphones

I have been unable to use Blue Tooth for audio, I hope support for it is coming soon.

Re: Bluetooth Headphones

If it is paired ok with the PB, it is not an issue with it.

Make sure you are close (10m tops) from de PB when using.

Rutibrom, it is paired fine but the PB says no services available.

 

The headphones work on my Torch & iPad with no problems.

 

I heard from another site that the playbook can't work with bluetooth headpones & RIM is working on a fix.

 

Thanks.

Re: Bluetooth Headphones

PB's Bluetooth profile is HID. Check which one is your headphones' for compatibility.

"HID" stands for Human Interface Device - aka mouse and keyboard. This interface does nothing for you if you want to connect your headphones via Bluetooth.

 

BT, I saw a cute little blutooth keyboard for the PlayBook in Staples yesterday.

Yes. PB has DUN, HID and SPP. The problem with the audio devices might not have to do with lack of profile do. DUN guarantees internet bluetooth enabled devices and tethering and SPP allows Bridge. If HID is exclusive to mouse and keyboard pairing, why isn't the audio issue a problem of lack of bluetooth profiles of PB?

Re: Bluetooth Headphones

We'll have to wait until RIM provides support for  Headset Profile (HSP).

 

Dialup networking and serial port protocol has other uses and won't help us connect a headphone.

If your current headphones are currently paired to your smartphone, you can go into the Blutooth settings app on your BB and check the properties to see which protocols the headphones support. Until the PlayBook also supports those same protocols, the headset will not function properly (if at all).

 

My Motorola HD-S9 supports Handfree, Headset, A-V Remote Control Target, A-V Remote Control and Audio Sink. Since my Curve supports the same protocols, the two devices can happily talk to each other and deliver lovely sounds to my ears and also allow me to control the BB by pushing buttons on the headset. 

 

The same cannot be said for my PlayBook so I'll just have to wait for RIM to do their thing.
