Q: I have a pair of the Oakley O ROKR sunglasses and use them in conjunction with my iPod. I just purchased an iPhone and wanted to use the O ROKRs with the iPhone but was prompted by the iPhone to enter a PIN# to complete the bluetooth pairing. Any assistance you could provide would be greatly appreciated.

- Carole

A: Most Bluetooth headsets require a PIN in order to pair with another Bluetooth device, and most use the default settings of “0000” as the PIN, so this should allow you to pair your ROKR sunglasses with your iPhone.

An important point to note, however:  Although the iPhone does support Bluetooth headsets, it is presently designed only for use with a phone headset, and will therefore not provide stereo audio, or even music output through a Bluetooth-connected headset. Only phone audio will be passed to the headset. Music playback requires that the music device support the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP), which the iPhone does not presently support.

So while you can use the O ROKR sunglasses as a Bluetooth headset for phone calls, you will not be able to listen to music through them without connecting them to the iPhone in the same way as you were previously using them with your iPod.
