Headset Options for Sony Vaio
 
I have a Sony Vaio VGN-C1Z/B running Windows MCE 2005.
It uses the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack for Windows
v4.00.36.0(SO)with driver version 5.0.2129.0, has a
Sony cordless mouse and connects wirelessly to the
internet.

I'd like to use a cordless device for audio playback
and recording and in particular for VoIP with Skype.
I naively bought a Plantronics Pulsar 590E headset -
after all it was Bluetooth so what could possibly go
wrong? Oh boy! Well, firstly Bluetooth insists that
the device is an "audio sink", not a "headset", so
that's the mic and Skype kaput. Secondly, as Bluetooth
help would have warned me had I bothered to read it,
Bluetooth headphones only work properly if no other
Bluetooth devices are connected. Audio playback breaks
up and lags hopelessly unless I disable the mouse and
the internet connection. I gather from Google that a
number of people have encountered similar problems. I
couldn't find any convincing solutions, so I think the
Pulsar is a lost cause though I'd be grateful if
anyone has any useful suggestion to offer.

My next option seems to be a corded headset plugged
directly into the sound card but I would really like
a cordless solution if possible. So, I'd be grateful
for recommendations for a binaural stereo cordless
headset which would actually work with my system for
audio playback and recording, including VoIP.

TIA

Does the FCC know you're trying to do all this?

Never mind, you're a limey.
