Bluetooth device

Is there a list of Bluetooth devices that the Nook HD Plus is compatible with?

Re: Bluetooth device

It should be compatible with any Bluetooth device, I read somewhere (I thought it was in the manual but can't find it now) that the HD+ BT supports all BT formats. I have  Sony BT headphones and they work perfectly with the HD+ right out of the box.

Re: Bluetooth device

Not all Bluetooth devices work with it.  When I called tech support I was told that only speakers and headphones work with it, but I've found through trial and error that some keyboards (Logitech Tablet Keyboard for Android 3.0+) work with it as well.

Re: Bluetooth device

I have a Plantronics BackBeat 903+ which would not be seen by my Nook HD+. I was told via e-mail "We have checked on the specifications of your headphone and found out that it has microphone on it. As of now, NOOK HD+ does not support headsets with microphone and that is the reason why it will not pair. Being able to pair a headphones with microphone is a very nice idea."

 

So I bought a Creative Labs WP-300 which does not have a microphone. My Nook HD+ does not see this either.

 

According to the user guide on my new Nook, there is a compatibility list but we should contact our local BN store for that. 

BN, please make this list available on the Nook HD support site. Thank you.

Re: Bluetooth device

Thanks for posting this. Unfortunately, I bought a set of headphones with a microphone before I read this. They work perfectly with my iPhone but not my Nook HD+ and I'm bummed.  Guess I'll see if they'll work with my son's Kindle Fire and pass them along to him. Ugh.

Re: Bluetooth device

Newly purchased MS Wedge bluetooth keyboard can be seen as "available" but will not pair to my Nook HD. Tried until blue in the face. Took it in-store to BN as advised via instructions and the in-store clerk had the exact info taken out of my instructions. Clerk advised that all the bluetooth stuff was new to the staff and they are working alongside the customer to figure it all out, too.

 

Old Jabra headset seen as "available" and pairs but does not work at all when paired.

 

Purchased Nook HD 2 days ago and would really like a listing of bluetooth compatible products, as well. I am new to the Nook world and my experience thus far has been more frustrating that "fun" or productive.

Re: Bluetooth device

@48anna I have the same MS Wedge keyboard and I have mine working. I posted instructions on getting it paired with the Nook here:

I also have a MS Blue Tooth Mouse 5000 that is paired and working fine with my Nook HD+. I hope the instructions help and I'm happy to answer any further questions I can with regards to pairing the keyboard.

Re: Compatible Bluetooth device

I purchased bluetooth headphones that pair easily with Nook HD+. The brand and model is ECO-V300. The price from Amazon is $29.00.  The phones provide excellent sound with bass and mid-range sounding natural. It's not advertised but they sound like "open back" due to good stereo separation. Yet, when removing the phones there is no detracting noise to other people present. INCREDIBLE BUY FOR THE PRICE AND SOUND. They are not Sennheiser's nor expensive, but very pleasing.

 

To pair, I initiated the phones and then turned on bluetooth on the Nook. Took less than 10 seconds.  

 

A tip: make sure you hold down the MFB button, then release as light starts blinking and make sure it continues blinking while you turn on Nook bluetooth.  Everything will auto connect with no problem.

 

Hope this helps.

@Banditsdad:  Thanks for the tip.  I'm willing to risk $29 on an experiment, where I wasn't willing to risk $150.  I'll give them a shot and see what happens.

I checked out these phones at Amazon, and there are like 50 different sets of headphones with that model number (ECO-V300), all liksted as being compatible with different devices, none of which seem to be the Nook. 

Now I know bluetooth devices aren't that specific, but I did notice that all of these phones also contain a microphone (for "hands free" phone operation), and I've read all over the web that the Nook won't work with a headset that includes a mike.  I can understand why this might be the case if the HD+ only has one bluetooth channel, and both the phones and the mike try to access it at the same time.
Does yours include a mike, or am I just looking at the wrong item?

Re: Compatible Bluetooth device

Yes, mine has a mic.  I went back to Amazon site and looked at others, just different colors. Mine are black. The exact model I ordered was ECO-V300-12152. 3.5mm, sold by PINKTECH AND FULFILLED BY Amazon. The phones really do work with no problems.

 

Almost forgot.  On the page listing the headphones, look below at "other sellers". You will find the same product  "like new" or "used" and some of them fulfilled by Amazon.

 

Let me know if i can be of further assistance.

If they work, they work, I guess.
Wonder why so many others couldn't get the mike/phones combo to work?

 

Oh well, I'll give them a try,  Thanks for the help.
