Danny from the UK has sent me in this Email ………
hi its danny from the uk here, im looking at the n91
and you seem to be able to answer most question
regarding the phone, my only concern at the moment are
the headphones, i would be looking at bluetooth
headphones as wires always piss me off, (one of the
reasons i got my imac last year, no wires, works
perfectly and aesthetically its the best ive ever
seen) but back to the question, i want to get the
proper headphones, "dj" style and wanted to know if
they could directly connect to the phone or not,
thanks in advance
Well Danny Boy!!! ( Sorry Irish thing) ,
I havnt any experience in useing a Bluetooth Headset with the Nokia Phones but i have looked in it and here is what i found and for what its worth I think ( Its my blog, I can think what i like).
Firstly, If you realy want some of these headphones , the DJ style ones then you need to take in to consideration some points.
If you DO get Wifi enabled headphones , which work with the Nokia N91, what happens when you get a call??
Think of this? There you are , walking down the street , boping along to your fav tunes that you've just loaded in to the nokia N91 .
Right now your the man , your the Dude , Amigo , the DON of portable gadget magic. Everyone can see that you are wearing these DJ style headphones with no wires , they simply think COOL!!! And to a certain extent theyd be right, however the question should be what are you wirelessly connected to??
They assume of course the IPOD , dang, almost every person and his great Aunt Maureen have one. But wait , you dont have an every day run of the mill IPOD, you have the New Nokia N91!! Cool!!
So there you are , Wireless Headset connected to the Nokia N91 via Bluetooth and all is good with the world , the phone is tucked away in your bag , safe and snug.
But wait!! Aunt Maureen is calling me!!!! How do i know ?? Cause i can hear it on the my DJ style Wireless Headphones connected via Bluetooth!! Ill just tell her im busy, Awwwww feck! I cant , why?? Cause i can only listen!!
Now you have to rummage thru the bag in order to find the phones, answer it , maybe reply to a few text messages that you heard come in and once its been done return to the music.
So what am i getting at here??
Firstly , although it sounds like a really good idea , its not really convient for the type of device you are going to use. ( Nokia N91)
If it was an Ipod , sure no pbrs , you dont receive Calls or txt on an ipod yet, ( Iphone anyone??)
So the thing is that when you get these DJ style headphones its not going to be that cool if you find your self quickly looking for your phone halfway thru a track of Girls Aloud.
Ok so what can you do??
Firstly you need to understand what you really need , not what you think you need.
Know the specs
The Nokia N91 uses Bluetooth to communicate with a whole host of devices , the MAC machine being only but one , However , when going out to buy a WIFI device make sure it will work.
Look for something that has Integrated Bluetooth wireless technology v.1.2. , thats what the phones uses , so what ever you get make sure its the same or higher.
Now normaly most Bluetooth devices will all work , but I dont like to take to many chances when it comes to money on gadgets so id first have a look at Nokia , as there is a better chance that what ever devices they have should work with the Phone.
Try this the HS_12W, now according to the website it does not appear compatible with the Nokia N91 , but im willing to say that it will work. ( I wonder why Nokia hasnt given more thought to this)
For me at least i dont think they are completely practical , how would you answer a call?? In this case at least from what ive seen so far the pnly thing close to this is the Nokia HS_12W but until i hear that it or something similar , ( IE that will allow me to make calls as well as listen to music) then im gonna wait before i make the plunge.
In direct answer to your question, im willing to say that most Bluetooth headsets will work , just check the version of bluetooth and sure even give it a test run if you can in the store.
Id be interested if anyone else has experience in this , or have suggestions for Danny on this.
