The selling point was when the salepeson said the Insgnia Pilot would interface with my Phonak hearing system (bluetooth capability) just as my mobile phone does. After many failed tries I called the 800 support element. The nice man informed me that only insignia pilot bluetooth headphones will interface with my mp3.
I'm hoping that there is talent out there that might know of a mod that would enable an interface of my mp3 with my aids.
It appears that the Pilot is incompatable with Phonak so there is no fix. It would be a waste of money to subscribe to a trouble line, and it is insulting to be asked. We have already wasted money on the MP3 player. I am sorry the store clerk was not knowledgeable enough to tell us this before we bought the unit. It still works with our stereo, but does not fill the intended purpose.

the directions from Samsung to pair the headset was way off. You need to hold down the main button then turn on the headset. Only then will the headset go into pairing mode by maintaining a solid blue light. It took me a couple of days of troubleshooting and experimenting to realize this pairing method. I just hope that this problem is only due to my headset because I assume a lot of people who buy this headset and try out Samsung's directions will become very frustrated. I almost returned the product and I am sure many others would too.
I don't believe they'll sell replacement screens, you'll probably just have to shell out for a new pilot. Your best bet is probably doing what I did: eBay. Got a gently used 8GB Pilot for $30 that had a 4GB SDHC card in it that the company selling the used player didn't even know was in it. I love free stuff. ;-)
I'd recommend downloading the User's Manual. The instructions on how to connect the MP3 player to Bluetooth compatible headphones are located on pages 27-29 of the manual.
NOTE that the wireless headphones MUST be A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) compatible to use this feature. If your headphones are also AVRCP (Audio/Video Remote Control Profile) compatible then you will also be able to adjust some settings of the MP3 player (such as play/pause, skip forward/backward and control the volume) wirelessly. Check the documentation on your headphones to ensure compatability.
The NS-DV2G and NS-DV4G are not the Bluetooth models, so Bluetooth speakers will not help you here.
Decent self-powered PC speakers should work well as a speaker solution for this unit unless you were looking for portability. Basically you're looking for speakers that have a headphone level input...not a line level input. you'll need speakers with a built in amplification circuit.
As for recomendations...that's really a subjective question and up to the users preferences for listening.
