    I want to plug in ear buds and use my phone as Bluetooth headphones for streaming a2db audio. Any way Android can do this? Seems simple enough, but I'm no dev, and I can't find this anywhere after about two hours googling.

    I use a Samsung HS3000 stereo Blutooth adapter, let's you use any headset as a stereo hands free device and works and sounds great.

    Thanks for the replies, but I guess my post wasn't clear enough.
    I want to plug in earbuds and use my phone to receive Bluetooth a2db audio from a separate Bluetooth audio transmitter. There's plenty of ways to SEND a2db audio to a stereo or car, but I'm looking to RECEIVE it. The end goal is to be able to stream audio out of my TV and listen through my phone's corded earbuds, rather than buying a pair of very expensive Bluetooth headphones. I'd basically be turning whatever earbuds I plug in into Bluetooth headphones.

    The solution that I posted only cost me about $25 from NewEgg and let's me use any of my headphones or earbuds with Bluetooth, it also has transport controls built in so that I can control the player from the adapter without having to unlock the phone. Has AptX compression also for those devices that support it.

    I'm going out of the headphone jack into a Bluetooth transmitter. Just need the phone to be able to pick it up now.

    Convenience? Cord length, or freedom to move about?

    I'm also looking to do the exact same thing. I want to send audio from my entertainment system to my Avantree Saturn bluetooth transceiver, then receive the audio on my phone. I'm coming up empty in all my searches. Frustrating.:confused:

    I'm trying to do the same exact thing. I just want everyone in the room to be able to listen to the TV using just their smartphone. Every android smartphone should already be able to receive Bluetooth audio.
