    bluetooth headset audio not as reliable under Vista SP1

    I use a Jabra BT125 both for my phone and for day-to-day audio so that I can
    listen to internet radio programs and youtube etc without disturbing my
    office mates.

    Under my fist Vista install this worked great on my Sager NP9262 (BT is
    Cambridge Silicon Radio / Microsoft driver) much better than my previous
    Dell. Specifically it reconnected when I turn my headset on/off and did not
    require re-pairing or restarting applications using audio devices (I think
    that means the Microsoft driver doesn't destroy the audio device when the
    paired device goes offline, allowing reconnect to work and not lose
    functionality).

    However under SP1 I've noticed a degraded experience. My device does not
    always reconnect properly and I have to de-select the Headset service and
    re-select it to receive audio. This removes the audio device requiring
    applications to restart and it's a manual process to toggle the Headset
    service.

    I noticed under SP1 when pairing Vista defaulted to a "Telephony" service.
    De-selecting that service before using the Headset service slightly improved
    its reliability, but my experience still isn't as good as it was before SP1.

    RE: bluetooth headset audio not as reliable under Vista SP1

    I have found better results with the Toshiba Bluetooth drivers, however they
    are serial-locked to particular devices after 30 days

    My primary concern currently is that I cannot select the audio output
    quality of my A2DP connected device. Using the Toshiba drivers I am able to
    select "low quality" audio and the sound does not cut-out when I move my
    mouse.
