One Phone, One MP3 Player, One Combined Headset?
February 19, 2008 6:50 AM Subscribe
I have an MP3 player that uses a standard 3.5mm wired set of headphones.
I also have a mobile phone that supports bluetooth.
Is there a headset device that would let me listen to my MP3 player as normal, but when a call was received switch to the phone/bluetooth connection?

I listen to music nearly everywhere I go, but I fairly frequently miss calls because I can't hear the ring tone. (Probably much to the annoyance of people near by) - I use a vibrating alert as well, but when positioned in a pocket I could actually get the phone out quick enough, I often don't feel it either.
So having some sort of dual functioning headset would be ideal, and it seems a perfectly logical idea, but after doing some looking, I can't seem to find anything that would do the job. Either they don't exist (I doubt it) or I'm not using the right terminology (more likely)
I'm aware the are other options such as just listening to music via my phone, but I'm specifically looking for a way to use both a non-featured MP3 player and a bluetooth phone at the same time.
Any solutions or ideas that come closer to the idea much appreciated.
