Tiny wireless headsets getting new features, for free, by way of a software update? We’re living in the future, you know.
We just got word from Aliph that their $99 Jawbone Icon headset will be gaining support for the A2DP (music streaming) protocol tomorrow, by way of a free update made available through their AppStore-esque headset customization portal, MyTalk
A2DP is a Bluetooth profile built for streaming 2-channel audio, so it’s generally reserved for stereo Bluetooth headsets. The Icon obviously isn’t a stereo headset (being that it’s a one-ear headset) but Aliph says they got a good number of requests from people who wanted to be able to stream their tunes regardless.
