My stepfather gave me this Bluetooth wireless headset. It connected fine, and I could hear phone calls from it, but not music. I tried with another. Same situation. Why won't it work? I think it is because the Sony Ericsson W810i uses walkman. Please help me play music from my headset. The headsets I used were the Motorola S9 headphones and the iMuffs.
All the bluetooth wireless headset are only capable of making/receiving voice calls. Y? its a bluetooth software which is installed on ur cell phone. it is not capable of listing the music through the BT headset. BT 1.1 Software version only lets you listen to mono. BT 1.2, Version playing music through a BT headset while music is playing on laptops. and again we need to find out what BT software version is on the phone and if sony erricsson came out with better BT software for your needs.

Bluetooth is a wireless technology that allows devices to communicate via high-frequency radio signals. Bluetooth headphones are just one of the many devices designed to work with portable music devices as well as ordinary phones. With Bluetooth headphones, you can listen to music as well as make and receive calls--all from the same device. Connecting them is a snap.
Turn on your cell phone. Enable Bluetooth by accessing your phone's general or network settings. Your phone will search for Bluetooth signals in the area--they are usually denoted by a small icon displayed on the screen. If you don't know how to turn on Bluetooth or aren't sure whether your phone supports Bluetooth technology, refer to your phone's user guide.
Turn on your Bluetooth headphones while near your cell phone. Turning on a Bluetooth-enabled device will usually put it in pairing mode, meaning it is actively searching for a device to connect to. Since your phone also is actively searching for a Bluetooth device, it should find it right away and prompt you to connect to it. It may ask for a password--refer to your headset's user manual for the default password and how to change it.
Test your connection. Once your headset is paired, the phone will usually start sending calls and audio to it without any additional configuration. Some phones may prompt you and ask which device to use. Try making calls and/or playing music. If you hear music from only one ear, your phone may not support stereo Bluetooth. If you don't hear anything, re-pair the headphones. Power off your phone and headphones, then turn them back on and repeat steps 1 and 2.
I have the same problem with my HBS-250. It was working fine on my iPod Touch. It worked the first couple of weeks on my iPhone 4 then stopped playing music. Phone funtion works. No music or podcasts or streaming from the web
There are two types of profiles that Bluetooth headsets uses. One, it is called the A2DP (Advanced Digital Profile) and second is called the Headset profile (Mono).
The A2DP is used for listening music that's transmitted from the phone to the headset. The Headset profile is used for calling. But the A2DP can also be used for calling if the phone or the headset support it.
If one of your device (either the phone or the headset) doesn't support it, then that could be the reason why you couldn't hear the sound.
If both devices support A2DP, make sure that your headset is connected to the phone via the A2DP profile.
You need to refer to the phone manual to see if it's supported by your phone and how to connect to it.
according to the specs ive read these are the bluetooth profiles supported by your phone : Bluetooth® Supported Profiles:
dial-up networking, headset, hands-free, file transfer, imaging, printing, JSR-82 copied directly from motorola website........so in other words your phone does not support the bluetooth stereo profile.....so the headset may function as an earpiece but music play wont be possible
Is the headset paired and connected to your phone? Is bluetooth turned on in your phone? Look for the bluetooth icon on top of your phone's screen. Let me know what model phone you have and I can help you troubleshoot.
