Quick iPod touch tip

Quick iPod touch tip

I found out that the headphone jack is still active even when audio is getting piped to Bluetooth headphones. This would be an easy way to share audio with someone else without being bound together by headphone wires. πŸ™‚

  1. Wait. The iPod Touch supports Bluetooth headphones? Like A2DP profile, stereo bluetooth headphones? When did that happen? πŸ™‚

  2. Hi, Josh. πŸ™‚

    The touch doesn’t support BT headphones natively; I’m using a pair of Sony BT headphones that came with a BT dongle that plugs into the universal dock port.

    I got them from Circuit City: http://www.circuitcity.com/ssm/Sony-Wireless-Transmitter-Headphones-for-iPod-DRBT22IK/sem/rpsm/oid/191835/rpem/ccd/productDetail.do

    I actually was a bit disappointed because I had originally bought a pair of Sony BT headphones that wrap behind one’s neck, but they didn’t work well with the BT adapter I had laying around at home. So I exchanged them for the bundle that had a pair of headphones and the BT dongle. I didn’t realize that these headphones were the regular over the ear kind that you wear across the top of your head. πŸ˜› The only reason I’m keeping them is that the playback controls work better than the Motorola S9 headphone controls did. I couldn’t scrub forward and backward through tracks with the Mot ‘phones.

    I have a mobile phone BT headset, how can I pair it with my iPod touch? I don’t think that is possible or I just misunderstood the whole thing?

  4. I am not sure if you can pair a mobile phone headset with the iPod. I guess it would depend on the headset. Motorola S9 headphones are both stereo headphones and a mobile phone headset, so they can pair up with the iPod touch via an external BT dongle. But I have not tried a strictly mobile phone headset, like the Jawbone, or whatever.

    I think the key is what profiles your mobile phone headset supports. I think if it supports A2DP, then you could pair it with the touch. But don’t quote me on that. The key is having the external BT dongle, though, since the iPod touch doesn’t have internal BT.
