I have found that winamp doesn't automatically output through any hands-free headphones, therefore you need to go into Preferences on Winamp (Ctrl+P), go to:
-Plugins/Output
-select Nullsoft DirectSound Output -->configure
-select Device tab
-select 02: Bluetooth Hands-Free Audio
-click apply
If music is already playing, click STOP then PLAY, pause will not do it.

I have been looking for this fix all day on the internet, but finally worked it out myself.
Hopefully this post will make someone else's day less stressful!

Using Windows Vista, open Bluetooth devices (just type in bluetooth devices into the search bar) then click on Add, put a tick in My device is set up and ready to be found > click next > double click on 590Plantonics > then next > put a dot in Use the passkey found in the documentation > type in 0000 then click next. It will then install the drivers, and click finish.

To ensure all windows Vista audio goes through your newly setup bluetooth headset, click on Start > Control Pannel > Sound select "Speakers: Bluetooth Stereo Audio" > Click on Set Default.

Now all windows applications will play through your headset. Your system will revert to it's normal audio once your bluetooth is disconnected.

Can't hear my pc to head set..can u help


Hearing a Plantronics Voyager 510 headset through a computer:

To use a Plantronics Voyager 510 headset through your computer, you either need a USB Bluetooth adapter or you must have Bluetooth built in to your computer. Once the Voyager 510 headset is "connected" to your pc (by one of the mentioned ways), you may need to go into the control panel on the computer or the specific software program being used to set the Plantronics Voyager 510 headset as the "default device". Keep in mind that the headset has to be powered on and to also have to activate the headset to connect to the Bluetooth adapter or computer.

Good luck from Headsets Direct - 800-914-7996.

How do I listen to music through the bluetooth


Listen to music with the Plantronics Explorer 220:

Unfortunately the Explorer 220 was not designed for music, it does not have the technology built in to stream audio. Headsets must have the Bluetooth A2DP profile and technology to be able to stream music. Like the Plantronics Voyager Pro+ and BackBeat models. Here are the links for these below.

CAN I CONNECT A THIS TO A LAPTOP? IF I CAN HOW?


You can use the Plantronics Explorer 240 on your computer if your computer has Bluetooth built in. Just turn on the Bluetooth feature in the computer and pair up the headset. You can get a USB Bluetooth adapter if your pc doesn't have Bluetooth built in, then just pair the headset to the adapter. Here is a link for the 230 / 240 user guide, it will have the pairing instructions for the Explorer 240.

Plantronics Bluetooth Headset P590


This is a "known issue" that I have raised to Plantronics. Whether they do anything about it, remains to be seen. The workaround I have discovered seems to work with both of my P590 headphones that stopped charging:

1. Plug in the USB charging cable to a laptop or computer that is powered on.
2. Connect the USB charging cable to the headphones
3. Connect the 3.5mm headphone cord cable to the headphone output on the laptop of computer (this is the long cable with the normal 3.5mm stereo plug at each end)
4. Plug the other end of the 3.5mm cable into the P590 input.

The headphones should start charging.
