    Do they work ( I have a Macbook Pro )?

    Basically - I want to listen to my music/radio in the office without wires.

    I have bought a bluetooth headset ( Conceptronic ) - and the computer can see it - but hoe do I get the music to play through them ( and not through the computer )

    cheers all:)

    Unless you have a separate Bluetooth transmitter, no Mac will work as they don't support the A2DP Bluetooth profile necessary for headphones to work. On my Dells / Sony's, no problemo.

    Who knows, you can hold out for an update. It's pretty much a standard for any laptop to have it these days.

    I managed to get audio through a bluetooth headset, I just had to manually change the output source.

    You could try downloading SoundSource and connecting your headphones and then selecting them in the output device from soundsources easy to access menu icon.

    Headset will of course work, i.e. a mono earspeaker + microphone, since that doesn't require an A2DP profile but a headset profile (which the Mac does have).

    That's what I did to add A2DP audio to my Mac Mini

    I purchased this Bluetooth Audio Transmitter and I could not be happier:


    I can now listen to my iTunes library on my A2DP headset while I work out. The transmitter can also be used on any other 3.5mm line out jack (even though I haven't yet). The only drawback is that it doesn't allow for AVCRP control.
