    I've done some searching, but haven't found an answer yet. I understand the 8300 has A2DP capability as does the Z9. My wife cannot stream her music files through the headset. I'm hoping its an easy setting fix.....any help would be appreciated!

    I haven't read, anywhere, that the Blueant Z9 is A2DP capable. Is it a new firmware option? Found this thread that seems to be related, on another board:

    Thanks, Strontium.....I'm about to read it now. I haven't found any definite specs on the Z9 either. Maybe that's the problem...its not capable. Anyway I better do some more research.

    The BlueAnt Z9 doesnt support A2DP, only Bluetooth Headset and Handsfree profiles.

    Some phones can send a mono audio signal to the Z9 but it sounds ****.

    If your wife really wants A2DP support, both the Plantronics Voyager 855 and Jabra BT8040 support it. The Jabra is a mono headset and the Plantronics has an extra earpiece for stereo.

    The Jabra can be had at Best Buy, right now, for $60. Beware, other retail stores are still trying to sell it for $80-$100. I ordered one, off ebay, for $44.

    Newegg.com will probably be the best bet for the Voyager, though. I think Best Buy and other stores were still trying to sell that one for $130, last time I checked. Newegg has it for $75. Ebay is at $70, so not worth the risk.

    Only problem is that both these sets are in-ear design.

    Thanks again everyone. Oh well, my BT is outdated.....so I'll upgrade to my wife's Z9 (for free) and buy her one that is A2DP capable.
