I was just wondering if anyone knows if the Backbeat headset http://www.plantronics.com/us/product/backbeat-903-plus will connect with my laptop and work like a normal headset and mic also? My laptop doesnt have bluetooth yet but i can buy those tiny usb bluetooth transmitter/receiver.
any info is appreciated, thanks
Yes you can. If you are looking for a Bluetooth adaptor, Plantronics manufactures the BT300, which you can pair to the headset and use with your computer. I have provided the link below for you:
I came across this thread while attempting to find support documentation on how to pair my stereo bluetooth headphones by Jaybird with my BT300. I've attempted pair both devices a several times but it just won't work. I reckon that while the headset may be expecting to receive a pairing code 1234, the BT300 may issue 0000 or something like that... Mod1, could you shed some light on this?
Thanks a lot in advance,
Kitus, the problem is that our USB adapters are not optimized for working with any kind of headset besides a Plantronics headset. Our headsets should always be able to pair with our own adapters without issue, but we cannot guarantee any sort of functionality with a Jaybird headset.
emmmm, what can I say... I assume that state-of-art standards should definitely allow you to implement basic and rich communication between your bluetooth dongles and other vendor's headsets.
I'm quite in favor of further developing on standards where they fall short even though this new piece of code may represent a spin-off standardwise. What I find hard to swallow is that I can't even pair two devices which are supposed to be standard compliant. I'm not talking here about rich features like fast forward, mute, redial, and all the value added features, I'm talking about being able to pick up a call and simply talk, but at this point even these two capabilities would be asking two much when I can't even pair the two devices.
Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying it is only your fault, it could well be Jaybird's (though I can easily pair them with my iPhone and other bluetooth devices like my laptop).
Thanks anyway for your prompt answer.
