I was under the impression apple did not allow the Bluetooth profile for track controls on iPhone/iPad. Are these different for some reason?

From product description: "Bass-thumping stereo sound to fuel your workout\SwitchStream and integrated mic, volume and track control for iPhone/iPod/iPad Supreme comfort with three sizes of ear sleeves for customized fit"

FYI: iPhone does not allow for the jaybird 200 to perform track change functions without the jaybird app.

    This was resolved with the iOS 4.1 upgrade. I can verify that since upgrading I can now move to the next track or the previous track using the buttons on my bluetooth stereo headset (not the Philips). I am not able to fast forward or rewind within the same track. However, this is a significant improvement over previous generations of Apple's stereo bluetooth implementation that lacked the basic track management capability.

  • I specifically asked Philips Support (online chat) today whether these headphones supported changing tracks on the iPhone 4 and IOS 4.1, since other bluetooth headphones do now allow changing tracks under 4.1. They said that the headphones are "still not compatible with the iphone 4 and ipad skipping feature." I asked them to check again, saying that the description of the item indicates that it does allow changing tracks, and asking them specifically to check whether the IOS upgrade made a difference. They rechecked, reporting that the "latest compatibility does not list this feature." Has anyone tested the actual headphones to confirm?
