Figured I’d post this here since I can’t seem to get an answer on a few tech forums out there.
I recently purchased an S9-HD Motorola Bluetooth headset for use with my cell phone to jam to tunes at work without wires.
I’m also interested in using it on my computer at home for talking on Ventrilo as well as Skype.
The problem I’m encountering is this:
The BT dongle I’m using supports A2DP (which is what the headset uses, stereo audio), so I know that isn’t the problem.
There are 2 modes that pop up once the headset makes its connection to the computer: “Motorola S9-HD” (which is stereo) and “Motorola S9-HD [HFP]” (which is the hands-free setting, resulting in mono sound from headphones.
The mic refuses to work in the stereo setting. It works fine (sounds like crap, but I don’t care) in the hands-free mono setting, but the output from the headphones is crap as well.
My question is this: I want to use stereo output AND the mono mic input at the same time. I made sure the default devices are set properly in my volume control when I’m connected to the stereo component of the headset. The mic seems to be completely disabled when in this mode, but works fine in mono.
Any thoughts? It’s probably not specific to this headset, either. Just looking for a solution since I’m probably messed up somewhere in the settings.
