Bluetooth is a wireless technology that is most often associated with mono audio headsets used for phone calls. Benefits from A2DP, bluetooth itself is fully capable of carrying a lot more than just phone audio. It is a popular wireless solution for stereo audio devices.
The Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) is the technology behind what's popularly known as Bluetooth Stereo Audio. Bluetooth A2DP enables a device such as a smartphone to connect wirelessly to a Bluetooth stereo headset and transmit music or other high quality audio. Normally this technology decodes audio from its native format (such as MP3 or WMV) and transforms it into a format that is more appropriate for Bluetooth's bandwidth. Most Bluetooth Headsets for office today are capable of connecting to A2DP devices and transmitting high quality audio.
Office headset manufacturers have used Bluetooth A2DP in both mono and stereo headsets. In mono headsets, however, the stereo aspects of A2DP aren’t used. Bluetooth stereo office headsets are the most widelyused for office works due to its multifunctionality. These devices can connect to your smartphone or computer to play audio from a music playlist or a movie you’re watching and connect to phone system for normal communication as well. A2DP can also transmit high-quality voice from a microphone, and this application is widely available for office communication requirements.
