I have a Jawbone Bluetooth headset paired to my new Nexus 7 tablet. In the paired Bluetooth devices section, it show that it is paired under the Phone Audio profile. I just want all the audio to go through the Jawbone earpiece, when it is connected. So far even though it is connected I can't get any sound out of the ear piece and the tablet still uses it's built in microphone.

So is there a way to change the Jawbone's Bluetooth profile from Phone Audio to all, or media, etc? I don't know how to change this, and I'm not even sure what the Phone Audio profile is for, since I'm new to Android and this isn't really a phone.

There is an app called Mono for Bluetooth that allows you route the devices sound via mono bluetooth headset. I'm sure there are other apps, but this is the first one I found and it seems to work fine. It also does the following:

  • sound indication when routing is switched on
  • restores sound volume after switching off the routing
  • indication when routing is on in status bar
  • restores bluetooth routing after phone call

Supports Android 2.2 and higher.
