The headset mic does not function when connected to my TF300 tablet, the tablet's mic does the recording. And yeah, we've confirmed it is likely Asus' BT implementation. Just wanted to clarify with ya...

No, I did not. It didn't occur to me that the mic on the Fire would still be open. I'll give it another try this weekend. Thanks for the suggestion!

Well I took a shot with these because of price and good reviews:

There wasn't any mention of compatability with the kfhd but folks noted it worked with the Nexus 7 so I'd least I'd be able to use it with the latter.

Well they work after trying yesterday with the kfhd. I'd say a pretty good deal given the cost. Range is about 30 feet, they are comfortable and not bulky!

I'm curious about the battery drain triggered by the use of bluetooth headphones compared to a wired pair. Anyone have a reading on that?

I tried it with my cellphone headset and it works fine; music, text to speech, and the internet/videos. So far so good. Bluetooth even works in my wife's car so to speak with the same as before.

Not a scientific test, but something:

Kindle Fire HD battery was at 15% this morning. I've done nothing with it except listen to music over BT headphones for about 5 hours. My battery is at 6% now.

The screen has only been on for a minute or two over the 5 hours. The wifi is on but no connection and the music is coming from the Kindle hard drive, not the cloud.

My battery monitor is telling me that BT and Wifi Active have both used the most power at 10.8% each.

EDIT: so I guess my battery would look better if I turned off my wifi when i have no connection.

Practical BT considerations

I am considering buying the Fire HD 7", and these look like good, inexpensive wireless headphones. I've never used a BT device before. Do I need to purchase anything else to get it to work with the Fire HD? How does the Fire HD recognize the headphones? One last, probably REALLY dumb, question: the recharge cable for the headphones is USB-based - so I'd need a PC to recharge? (or USB-to-A/C adapter)?

I think that I'm starting to feel my age creep up

Please PM me with the answers if it is too basic (or off-topic) for this thread.
Thanks so much!

These come with specific instructions to pair the earbuds with the kfhd. Nothing else is necessary, bluetooth on the kfhd will recognize an attempted connection to the earbuds.

I use my PC to charge the earbuds. Maybe there is other resources to utilize beyond that. One can go to a library and charge them there if there isn't an available PC.

Just going by the list of e-readers you have any of the usb chargers that you may already have will probably work with those headphones.

Most all usb chargers are fairly standardized as far as form factor and almost universal. The output voltage will be nearly the same, 5 volts, the only difference would be the current output.

So if you have a charger for the kindle, that charger probably will work with the headphones, with no fuss or muss. As long as the headphone charging port is a standard (small) usb port.

Edit: If you buy the KFHD you will also need the charger for it, and that charger could probably charge the headset.

Contact the seller and ask.

People of all levels of "tech-iness" or experience or age are welcome here - or in any thread. MobileRead members will answer (or try to answer) questions at all levels - basic or advanced.

If your question has already been answered in another thread, you will probably be given a link to that thread. This forum is overflowing in information - sometimes it can be a bit overwhelming - so go ahead and ask away!

In most cases, the only stupid questions are the ones never asked.

Thanks for all the information, I appreciate it! I'll probably just charge from a PC.
Actually, I just realized that the Fire HD "PowerFast" wall charger -that I am also going to purchase - is 5v output, so this would probably work.

It's like a crash course in android, apps, bluetooth, and tablet technologies. Good thing I like learning - thanks again!

The Samsung HS3000 paired up easily with the Fire HD. One of the nice features is that you can control all the major music functions like Pause, Play, Volume etc. from the Samsung controller. Very reasonably priced on Amazon and sounds pretty good too.
