    Re: Using bluetooth headset as audio gateway

    I'd also be interested for this - I don't yet have a bluetooth dongle, but
    have just started using VoIP (via Skype) to chat to my mates and would
    rather buy a dongle and be able to walk around the house chatting than buy a
    decent-but-cabled headset (not a lot cheaper). And then be able to synch
    them too.

    Ideally I want one that'll work in Linux 'n'all.... Not too much to ask is
    it!

    John.

    You need to google for the bluetooth "handsfree profile".
    There is development going on for Linux, but I don't know how good it is
    yet. Probably bleeding edge, if anything.
    Alternatively, for better sound quality, there is another profile for
    general audio use, and some hardware support.

    Well, I've been in the room next door to my mate with a headset chatting to
    him on the phone, while he was holding both his and my phones in the other
    room!

    Even being able to walk around the room and carry on doing stuff while
    you're on the phone is a benefit worth having - you know, for those
    long-term relaxed conversations you have with a mate that you might
    otherwise be having on IM. As if you were chilling out together.

    Don't know if it would have worked through a floor, but if you live in a
    bungalow you might be ok!

    Mine works perfectly fine with a couple of rooms and walls between the
    headset and the phone.
