These headphones are exactly how I would have designed stereo bluetooth. One mono earpiece, which can work on its own, conneceted via a small wire to a second earpiece for stereo capability. The mono earpiece has a slick little LCD display to let you interesting things like the name of the device its connected to, what mode it is in (phone, stereo, pairing), if music is playing, if a call is ongoing, etc. No more trying to decode the LED blinking patterns! Someone should have thought of this long ago. (Note to Apple: Feel free to copy this as soon as you feel like supporting A2DP for the iPhone. Thanks!)
Using the God-Awful-But-Really-There-Is-No-Other-Option Softick Audio Gateway, after about 10 attempts I managed to get some music going. However, once some one tried to call in the phone predictably crashed.
After a few more attempts at trying to switch modes, bypass the Audio Gateway, soft reseting the phone, I realized that I will never be able to switch between music and phone calls on my Treo. Ever. (Really Apple, support A2DP and I'll switch so fast your head will spin.) It's not the Jabra 8010's fault, it's the Audio Gateway's refusal to incorporate calls, and to a greater extent, Palm for not supporting A2DP natively in the first place. Is it too much to ask for a 300 dollar phone? It's so frustrating it's making me sick. iPhone 2.0 where are you!?
