    I just received a set of Sony HBH-IS800 headphones in, but the volume control on the iPhone has no effect on the headphones.

    Does anyone have any information about this?

    Volume control is not working on anyone's headsets yet...including my two. Only the pause/play works currently w/the release of beta 2
    Beta 1, nothing worked.

    They are getting there but it may take one or two more releases before the A2DP is up to standard.

    Hope that helps.

    I just wanted to confirm that device volume control was a normal function of the A2DP protocol. Googling gave me a few answers, but some people mentioned volume control working while most mentioned it didn't.

    Thanks for the information.

    I have read and experienced that the new 3.0 GM does not support volume control for stereo bluetooth headsets. This is a huge problem and for me when I attach the IS800, the volume is at the highest setting and it is WAY TO LOUD to make listening even worthwhile. Going to send a bug report to Apple hoping they will implement this missing feature!

    Yeah, I've been using my stereo blutooth headphones and the volume control on them works while listening to music. I haven't tried changing the volume using the controls on the phone since it was just easier to reach up and change them on the headset

    Using the Sony DS220 I have the same problem with the volume controls. But I can control the volume on the headphones by pressing & holding the Stop/Play button. Not ideal but at least I can use them without getting bleeding eardrums.

    The Stop/Play button doesn't stop/play the music however.

    Mine isn't working either. Have to use the little nubs on my BT headset.

    When I started playing a video, the audio was a few seconds behind the video. I think I found a little glitch.
