I got a pair of bluetooth headphones for Christmas, and they have made listening to music so much easier. The model is Zoom 4380. I used them with my phone, and the absence of wires from the phone (and the little drop-down speaker stalk) makes calling cool too.
The only problem I have atm is resuming music from the headphones, once it has stopped.
Anyway, the purpose of this thing here is using these headphones with Gentoo. In the end, the setup seemed easy. The journey wasn’t…

The XX:XX.. is the address from above, again. The 0000 is the pin for the headphones. You don’t have to run this as root.

You should hear your music in your headphones.
