I purchased the Logitech Wireless Headset for the iPad/iPhone, I believe you're calling it version 981 but am not 100% sure that's a model number or not.
It says it works with any bluetooth device, and it does flawlessly seem to work with both my iPhone4 and my iPad version 1 device. However, I'd also like to use it for my MacPro (now its an older model, so this maybe the cause of the problem).
It can pair with my MacPro with little to no problems, it shows I can use the output for either "Logitech Wireless Headset" or "Logitech Wireless Headset " stereo (the stereo's only option allowing me to adjust per left/right ear...I guess sound quality is improved too but I'm not an audiophile so I don't care about the "quality" for music.
Periodically I've noticed that sometimes, when initiating various applications on the Mac, I get an erorr & the bluetooth is disconnected. I've also noticed that in some applications, like ChatRoulette which uses Flash to pair the audio/mic to whatever devices I want) that even if I select to use the Logitech Wireless Headset for the microphone--it doesn't always work. In fact, when I use the Logitech Wireless Headset for FaceTime, the other person says they can barely hear me and I'm choppy. I've also noticed that the audio is "sometimes' choppy as well, not just the microphone...and then that error pops up.
Here's my question, is my bluetooth chip in my MacPro just too old to support this device properly?? Or would this problems happen on a newer Mac computer? I.E. the newer models, which I believe would have better bluetooth...

As the Wireless headset for iPad/iPhone is not designed to work on a Mac pc this could in itself be causing the problems the device is designed to work with the iPad/iPhone so any number of problems or anomolies could come up using it with your Mac.

That's a really poor answer as the Logitech web page and documentation DO say that the headset will work with many other bluetooth devices as long as they support A2DP which the Mac most certainly does. How about a real answer?
Here's the line from your own support docs:
You can use the headset with most Bluetooth devices for both audio streaming and phone calls.
Your device must support the following protocols:
For audio streaming: A2DP
For phone calls: HFP 1.5

any possibility to make this headset work on windows 7?
it's possible to listen music, but microphone feature doesn't work, and headset is like "turn off" when trying any chat program (MSN or Teamspeak) ...
my PC computer is fully bluetooth, and worked fine, so where is the problem??? are you lying on the manual ??

Does the mic work in windows? You can test it here: Start > All Programs > Accessories > Sound Recorder

I try to connect this headset to my I Pad and no problem, but with my Laptop windows 7 the bluetooth recongnises the Headset but on properties it does not recongnize the Manufacturer and apparently a driver is missing (it does not work) it gives an error and indicates there is a driver missing for the Buletooth Perfipheral Device, and windows can not fix it.
The drivers for this device are not installed. (Code 28)
There is no driver selected for the device information set or element.
To find a driver for this device, click Update Driver
Any comments or help?
