To my knowledge there are only two Stereo BT Headphones on the market, HP's
own and Bluetake's. The BT profile for the headphones is designed for high
quality audio for listening to music.
To use the BT headsets that are commonly used for cell phones, you need a
Headset or Handsfree profile which is different than the Stereo one. A
number of PPC have that profile by default, some can be hacked to expose it.
I don't know where the 5550 falls.
The Bluetake device actually has a microphone and can be used as headphones
with the Headphone (Advance Audio) profile, or as a headset using the
Headset or Handsfree profile.
