Default Vista & Bluetooth Headsets

Anyone know a good fix for this problem? I know Vista has built in Bluetooth support but this actually doesn't support Headsets due to missing profile support. Anyone know a good non performance hurting fix? I got one off the logitech websites but applications either crash on exit or lag upon startup when using my headset.

Headset as in a right and left headphone plus a mic?

I think I'm having a similar problem. I have a Jabra BT620S:

...which is a stereo bluetooth headphone with a built-in mic. I thought I'd get a bluetooth dongle and see if I could use the whole setup, mic included in Vista. Its primary use is to accompany my Samsung Blackjack Smartphone.

I can get the headphones to work in stereo, but I think for the headset to work I have to switch to mono. Or that's what Vista's telling me... in the review section of Newegg for my bluetooth dongle (Cirago BTA-6060) apparently users haven't had trouble getting both the headphones AND headset to work in XP... meh... that's what I wanna do...


so magus, what is your headset and what is your bluetooth adapter?

build in ok, but what kind is it? does it require broadcom stack? toshiba stack? or bluesoiel stack?

what standard? 1.2? 2.0? 2.1?

bluetooth is a big mess, to many versions, not compatible software sometimes, to many software types. who ever started all this bluetooth stuff didn't plan this out every well.
Windows 8 the next big failure, right after Windows ME

Stacks not the issue, it will work with mice and anything else but if you want to use a Bluetooth Headset (mic) then windows starts asking for a driver. I got a misc driver on the logitech forum where its being discussed the issue but it causes performance problems when the headset is being used.
