    Very simply. Does anyone know if it's possible to use some stereo bluetooth headphones or headset with a PSP Go?

    I'd imagine if anything that Sony-branded PS3 set would work, but I was wondering if say, a standard set would work?

    As far as I know, the PSP Go supports A2DP, so yes, it can play sound in Stereo and even control the Player (to a limited extent) with hardware buttons on your headset. Technically, any A2DP set should work in-conjunction with the unit, it doesn't have to be PlayStation-Certified, but it's best to check if the devices are pairing properly before making a purchase.

    Sorry to dredge up an old thread, but I finally have had a chance to try it out.

    Sadly, even if the PSP go does support A2DP, it doesn't look like it supports it properly... case in point, I had a chance to try out a set of such headphones with my PSP go, but it can't seem to identify them at all.

    My PSP Go is running 6.20 ProC if that has anything to do with it. It makes me wonder if an updated firmware would support more devices, but at least for the current perma-CFW I have, it doesn't seem like it will. :(

    It might be a matter of the headset, actually. Are you sure that you set your headset to "Search" mode?

    According to its manual, it definitely was. Even after re-searching for devices on the PSP twice, it always came up 'unknown' instead of identifying what it was.
