Nokia N91: Bluetooth Wireless Headphones for the Nokia N91

An interesting mail from Paul with what looks to be a cool add on for the Nokia N91.

————————————————————————————-

Hi Mac,
I love this 'phone & have just used it to shoot a shop report video
for work that was very well received. ( I'm a graphic designer ). I
use it to check my .mac mail & it is basically the device I've waited
for all my life.

I have 2 questions. Apologies,  I'm sure you are very busy & have
probably already posted replies to these questions.

Can I use my plantronics pulsar headphones without the dongle ? I
have tried but think the 'phone doesn't support the profile ?

How do I find out what firmware my 'phone has & then update it if an
update is available. Will the update include the headset profile ?

Thanks again for bothering to put up the site I'll have a good wade
through from home !

Paul

 Hi Paul , Well firstly like ive said before always do a search on the site BEFORE you send an email in , in most cases , and certainly in this ive already answered the more common questions, this being the Firmware question.

To find out the Firmware version is easy,

Type in *#0000#   and this will be then be displayed.

 

Now on to your first question

"Can I use my plantronics pulsar headphones without the dongle ?" 

According to the Website, ( Hint) it states the below:

  • For stereo listening, Bluetooth® devices must support the Bluetooth Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP). Devices that do not support the A2DP profile must use the Plantronics universal adapter.
  • Bluetooth mobile phones with built-in MP3 must support the Bluetooth Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) for stereo listening.

Currently as far as I am aware , the Nokia does not have A2DP as standard , but it may do in a future firmware update , to which i must make a call and see if there is any sign of it.

So i guess at the moment you will have to use the dongle, at least for the time being.

Sorry Mate.

    A2DP is in the plans I far as I know for N91. Stay tuned for future firmware updates announcements. BUT, if this particulae headphones will be supported or not it is a big questions. Usually manufactures list recommended headsets, because not all of them follow the standard precisely.
