Is there a reason you haven't just tried it? – Al E. Jul 11 '12 at 16:16
Of cause, I try, but only built-in microphone was active. But I need external. – Vasily Jul 12 '12 at 0:56

Appears that Android still lacks some skills regarding Bluetooth headset to Voice Input capabilities. I couldn't make it work either.

But there's an APP for everything, and this is no different ;)
