    Can I listen to music through a Bluetooth headset on my iPhone?

    I am new to the Iphone and I was planning on buying my first bluetooth headset. I am leaning towards the Plantronics Discovery 925. I just wanted to know if I could play music thru it.

    Thanks in advance for any help or advice.

    not that i know of. besides. even if you could do it, music is split into the bass and treble for each earphone, so if u somehow got it to work, you'd probably only receive one of the two.

    Your headset needs to support the A2DP bluetooth profile for stereo streaming.

    Since 3.0 you can but listening with one ear is lame. There are stereo headsets available.

    You're out of the loop. Yes, it supports it. However, what I don't know is if it is only the new 3GS that supports it or if it is also now supported on the first and second generation iPhone.

    checking the spec sheet for the Discovery 925, it will NOT support bluetooth stereo streaming. Regardless of which iPhone you have.

    engaging the iPod function to listen to music/video audio while a call is taking place will allow you to hear said audio. Obviously this is not an ideal solution, but it proves that the iPhone at least harbors the capability to send music/video audio through Bluetooth headsets, and opens the door for software workarounds to trigger the throughput without the need for an active call.

    i've seen worse questions so don't be too hard on yourself.

    just do a forum search using the word "battery" and you'll find quite a lot of dumb things said.
