    If not there will be soon. Apple seems to be taking an interest in bluetooth headphones (they just bought a company specializing in that).

    Apple did not buy the company. They just hired one of the cofounders as a Bluetooth Engineer.

    There are hundreds, including every phone headset out there, along with a bunch of stereo headphone/microphone setups, like Motorola ROKR. There is nothing unique about how FaceTime uses Bluetooth.

    Any bluetooth headset that will work with a phone will work with your Mac. Mind you, there are a few apps that don't like to play nice with bluetooth headsets (like the VOIP app I use), but in most situations, you just need to go into system preferences to set the headset as the mic you want to use.
