Can I use a Blue Tooth headset to listen to media?

2011-11-13, 1:49 AM

On my K1.

 

I have a headset that is compatible.

 

I have it paired and connected.

 

It is powered on, but the sound just comes out of the K1.

 

Am I missing something?

I got a headset that has A2DP and I now have bluetooth access.

 

Thanks for your advice, i am now getting a really good bluetooth headset.

 

The annoying thing is that the original headset said it was compatible with the K1on the LG website.

I followed all the instructions, but I did not see the  "Use for media audio" option, what I got was "handsfree, connected to phone audio" and it did not play any of the media I tried.

 

any suggestions?

@nebraskared,

Does your headset support A2DP? Also have you tried updating the K1 and see if you have the latest firmware? I've tested on my headset and it streams fine.

Hey, did you know there are apps that let you stream audio to non A2DP headsets? The audio quality may not be great but it works fine for pod casts and sounds like an AM radio for music. I found that BT Mono by Bedoig on the Android Market works with my K1 and a Motorola H505 headset.
