Generally, audio apps use the media channel, which will be played over Bluetooth if your Bluetooth device supports that A2DP profile. Check the specs on your headset to see if it supports A2DP -- if it does, please edit your question to include additional information on the music app you use and the make and model of your headset.

I did some googling and stumbled across this post on androidforums.com which has some suggestions: There are several apps which appear to provide this functionality. BTmono is the only free one I found that isn't limited to a certain length of time. It requires Android 2.2+. There are several other similar apps that you can also see at that link. This ...

I use an Android specified Headset with 3-button for my Nexus. Works brilliant. Not only does it deliver 3-button action, but also very good sound and a really hard hitting bass. Anyone enjoying Rock or Electronica will not stop listening ;-) The headset is specifically made for Android's lower voltage spec from Google and will NOT work on an iphone (the ...

Thanks to an app that turns an Android phone into a more universal Bluetooth device, it is possible to control a PS3 with your Android phone as though it were a Bluetooth remote control. The connection allows the phone to be used as a virtual keyboard for entering text, and it even has a touchscreen trackpad for moving the cursor in the PS3's web browser. ...

I believe this is impossible. The headset requires power from the device. Android versions before 3.1 state that they can not support powering the usb bus. From the developer guide: When the Android-powered device is in host mode, it acts as the USB host and powers the bus. When the Android-powered device is in USB accessory mode, the connected USB ...

Personally, I've found software solutions to this kind of thing to be more hassle than they're worth. Do you mind if your devices are physically close to each other? If not, I recommend a cheap hardware solution: 2 x 3.5mm Stereo Male / 3.5mm Stereo Female, 6 inch You could buy a 3.5mm extension cable to give yourself more flexibility if you need your ...

You can use a headset controller app from the playstore (e.g. Jays or Philips Headset or HeadsetButton Controller) to use the "middle button" for that. Might take a few tries to find the correct app (if one doesn't work fine, try another -- I did the same and finally found one working perfectly, see my answer here). I'm not sure if they affect the other two ...

When I switched over to Android I started looking for a three button headset compatible with my phone. I found that there are a couple of brands that do earphones for Android but you usually have to use an App to set the functions for button controls. I love good sound in my ears and probably use my earphones 2-5 hours per day. I have tested a couple, I ...

Is your phone Rooted ? BlueputDroid works with rooted devices only (if you are prepared to root your device then this maybe achieveable with this app) according to this article entitled: How to remotely control your PS3 with Android BlueputDroid Apps Guide written by EHSAN on Feb. 27th 2011. ...

Summary from my comments, as requested, as an answer: There are plenty of other headset controller apps on the playstore if you're worried about the permissions. I tried Jays once, but it only worked partially (in 9 out of 10 tries, I had no luck to adjust the volume -- instead, other actions were triggered, as e.g. pause/play). Having a Philips headset, I ...

My initial research is confusing. Some say that this kind of commands just aren't available on Android. One source says that at least one product (Klipsch S4a (Android), £50-90) actually works as desired when also installing an application from the vendor. As for add-on software to handle the in-cable buttons, HeadsetButton Controller (€2,29, free trial) ...

See my answer to a similar question - the problem is that within the Bluetooth AD2P profile (for stereo quality audio) Android phones aren't designed to be a "sink" (a receiver of media) only a source. You're right in that this is a limitation of the Bluetooth stack on your phone, but so far the info I've found says that trying to alter the stack comes with ...

A Phone connected through the USB, no. But if the phone is instead connected through bluetooth to the PC, you can try to turn on HFP (Hands Free Profile) Bluetooth profile service from your PC's bluetooth stack. The only way I found this possible was from the BlueSoleil Bluetooth Stack Software where you can set the bluetooth to parade as a "headset" ...
