Single ear bluetooth for music?

I have a Blackberry Curve 8320. I want to be able to listen to the MP3's on the blackberry through Bluetooth, but I don't want both ears covered. Is there a single ear bluetooth device that will accept streaming music?

most of them do. when your headset is connected to your phone, the ear piece turns off so everything you do even pushing buttons through menu you will hear in your bluetooth headset.

It depends on your phone (I don't know about the Curve) whether you can do it with any Bluetooth headset. Most phones will only send music through the A2DP profile which would mean that you would need a stereo Bluetooth headset.

The only stereo Bluetooth that allows you to switch between stereo and mono listening that I've seen is this one:

I would suggest that you try a regular headset first, and if it doesn't work then try the Plantronics (BTW it is about $150 @ the Bell store)

My neighbor has a Samsung 920 (?) with a Sammy BT earpiece. He told me that the only thing that doesn't work via BT, is the playing of music and video files. But he did tell me that some of the videos he has on his cell phone do play their sound via BT. He has yet to figure out why some will send their sound output to the earpiece, while others do not.

Thanks,

I bought a Jabra 8040 and it works perfectly.
