bootcamp bluetooth drivers missing headset profile
I just got a Plantronics Voyager+ ...
I have the latest drivers (I believe) from Apple for bootcamp.
Win 7 Ultimate 64 bit on a current model 15" MBP
Am being told by Plantronics that the drivers from Apple do not support the headset profiles. I am trying to find a broadcom (widcomm) driver, but apparently people have trouble installing on the MBP
Any tips or advice, or is it true that the MBP bluetooth BootCamp drivers do not support these headset profiles (A2DP?)

Did you install the boot Camp for 64 bit Windows 7? You can find the Boot camp 64 bit driver for 7 download here at Apple
Mac Pro Dual 2.8 Quad(Rev B.), 16 G RAM, OS X 10.9, 23'' LCD
Mac Book Pro Core 2 Duo 2.16Ghz, SuperDrive, 2G RAM, OS X 10.7.5

I am tempted to try installing drivers from broadcomm, but don't really want to mess with my MBP - as Windows 7 is humming along, and my bluetooth keyboard is working great... Thinking I will return this headset - but not sure what other headset I can get instead...

Microsoft bluetooth stack included in Windows 7 doesn't support A2DP profile, MS stated that the drivers should be provided by the hardware manufacturer. However, Apple drivers (based on the MS stack) doesn't provide support for audio profile. So doesn't matter which bluetooth headset you buy, it wont work out of the box. BCM drivers did the job for earlier (2010) models but wont install on MBP 2011 (nor MBA 2011, iMac 2011).
I posted the the solution here:
In your case, since you are using magic mouse/apple keyboard. I would say that the option 3 (atheros A2DP) will do the job for you without messing with your apple devices.
