i'm also looking for new bluetooth now. my current se mw600 battery started to spoil and can last only for 1 hour.

i'm looking for stereo a2dp multipoint. currently have 2 choices between se mw600 (the price has drop significantly due to old model) or samsung bhs3000.

previously i also considering jabra clipper, but after few e-mail exchange from their moronic technical support, i guess i'll never buy any jabra in future.

here are my e-mail exchange with them:

i understand this device can connect to 1 phone and 1 music device. if i pair 2 phones to it, which one (the first pair or the second pair) will be phone and music device? can i also use the phone to listen to music? if i can use the phone as music device, how do i change it from first music device to second music device?

Dear Mamat,

The Jabra Clipper has a limited multipairing. It can connect at the same time to a cellphone and a music player, or a cellphone and a PC, but not two cellphones at a time. The reason is that it can only pair to one A2DP and one NON A2DP device at a time, but if both devices have A2DP profile the multipairing will not work.

Thanks

Your answer seem a bit confusing. From what I understand, a music device
will always have A2DP. Only phone will have HFP (and/or HSP). So my phone
got A2DP and my other music device should also got A2DP (without HFP), then
I can never connect both my phone and my music device because both got
A2DP? Why are you claiming it can connect to 2 devices?

Let say you are wrong and confusing HFP with A2DP (just trying my luck
here), if this device (Jabra Clipper) is


1. Pair with my phone (HFP + A2DP) first, then pair to music device
(A2DP only)
2. Pair with music device (A2DP only) first, then pair to a phone (HFP +
A2DP)

when I press play button which device it will play from?

If any of the both situation the device will play music from my phone, is
there any button to press to "change the connected device" so that it will
play music from my music device?

From my experience on using multipoint bluetooth, only 1 device can be
connected at a time, and there is always a button to press to select which
device to be connected, which is lacking in your user manual.

Dear Mamat,

Bluetooth functionality is divided into separate types of connections known as "profiles". Not all Bluetooth devices support all profiles.

For example, most phones support the Headset (HSP) and Handsfree (HFP) profiles, for connecting the phones to headsets and car kits, respectively.

Other optional profiles support connecting to stereo headphones (A2DP, AVRC).


AVRC is a Bluetooth profile (mode) for controlling audio and/or video playback. The profile covers standard media control functionality such play, pause, stop, next, and previous.

AVRC is usually used in conjunction with the A2DP (stereo audio) or VDP (video) profile.

For example, a typical pair of stereo Bluetooth headphones uses A2DP to receive stereo audio from a phone, while AVRC is used to send play/pause/next commands from the headphones to the phone.

Thanks

Actually I don't care about all the technicality. My question was:

If I

1. Pair with my phone first, then pair to music device
2. Pair with music device first, then pair to a phone

when I press play button which device it will play from?

If any of the both situation the device will play music from my phone, is
there any button to press to "change the connected device" so that it will
play music from my music device?

Thank you.

Dear Mamat,

. Pair and connect bluetooth device A
. Pair and connect bluetooth device B

The primary bluetooth device at this stage is B, as this is the last device you paired.

. Now manually reconnect bluetooth device A in the bluetooth device bluetooth menu

At this point, both devices should stay connected to the Jabra Clipper, and you should be able to receive calls from either one of them.

Thanks,
Sebastian

now that suddenly their bluetooth device can be connected to 2 phones instead of 1 phone and 1 music device, i guess i should look at another product. any recommendation beside se mw600 and samsung bhs3000?

Tom Merritt from TWIT said he liked the jabber, I don't know what model. And that was a long time ago.

Yes.. Customer support can be annoying.....



Please let me know how you get on and what you find..

thx
badai
most probably se mw600. the only downside is its' extra sensitive and hard to use touch sensitive volume control. but i can live with that. the price now is a bargain. samsung bhs3000 got annoying voice prompt/alert.
