Default Here is a different question.

I have a pair of bluetooth headphones. Is there a way I can play my music from my computer to these bluetooth stereo headphones. I have my pc in the basement and that's where my excercising eqipment is and I don't want dangling wires in my way. Thanks

Bluetooth range is 10 meters I believe (~32 feet) so barring that the distance is equal or shorter than that, it's doable.

Hmm this reminds me, I have the same question I wanted to ask a while ago, I have bluetooth headphones, but I don't know how to connect to my computer, if I can at all.
Good question...

Bluetooth For Your Computer
To use Bluetooth on your computer, you need to check to see if your computer has Bluetooth hardware installed. If not, you can easily install it by purchasing either a USB-based Bluetooth dongle or a Bluetooth card. Make sure your operating system supports the Bluetooth hardware. Since all operating systems provide different levels of Bluetooth support.

Mines custom built and I know I don't have "Bluetooth Hardware"
Crap.

and stick it in the USB port.

It's low profile so you won't even notice its there.

Geez. I thought bluetooth had a range of only ~30ft? ....is this a longer range since it's V2?
