Jeff and all, Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Bluetooth, Bluetooth? It shouldn't matter if a headphone is for a cell phone, iPod, or workstation. The workstation shouldn't state that a Bluetooth device is for an iPod and not a workstation when connecting the two. The workstation should say, "I've found a new device that is Bluetooth. You want to use it?" and go on with life. I admit that I haven't tried this, but the theory seems sound enough to me. Makes me want to go out and buy a Bluetooth headset just to find out myself if it works. But, by trial and error is how I've had to learn. Thanks, Eric Mynes -----Original Message----- X-From: Jeff Hogan <firstname.lastname@example.org> I have a Dental Hygiene Computer Lab with 20 workstations. Imagine a large dentist office set up in cubicles. Each station has it's own chair, computer and monitor. The caveat is that the tower is about 20 feet from the monitor and is connected through the chair (something somewhat similar to what you see here: http://www.swccd.edu/~sdds/images/clinic_overview.jpg) The only difference between the above and what we have is that we are separated by cubicles. What I need are headphones. The keyboard and mouse are connected via Bluetooth. I'm having a hard time finding a Bluetooth headset for a computer. It seems to me that would be the easiest direction; but, the only Bluetooth headsets I find are for phones and/or ipods. I really can't connect this via cable (and no, the monitors don't have USB inputs on them). I'm concerned about FM transmission as they'd probably just bounce all over each other.
