Bluetooth- Stereo headphones or headset


Has anybody used a Bluetooth (https://www.bluetooth.org/) headset to import audio (from the microphone) or used Bluetooth stereo headphones with their PowerBook? It would be nice to use a combo set like this one(OBH-0100 by SONORIX) (http://www.sonorix.com/eng/index.html), but before I budget my money, I want to know if it will work on my new 12 PB and what people's expierence is with Bluetooth audio devices.



Post Script: I searched (http://forums.macrumors.com/search.php?searchid=91706) the forums and didn't find anything relivent.

uncompressed sound is about 1mbps and bluetooth is about 700kbps per second. and that isnt even real world stats. i got this from someone else on a previous forum....

There was a forum thread going on about this a while ago. Is this thing actually for sale yet? On the page you posted, the "buy a sample" link seems to only be for some kind of beta testing or evaluation program -- there isn't a price listed (even in Won:)) and you need some kind of code to buy it.

I don't know if anyone has a clear idea of how this works, since a lot of people on the net are saying what jackieonasses said -- that the bandwidth of BT is marginal. But I think other BT-based solutions have been demoed besides this one for high quality audio. Maybe they use both the digital and the analog BT channel at the same time? Who knows.
