    I recently picked these up:

    Amazon.com: Rocketfish Behind-the-Head Bluetooth Stereo Headphones - RF-BTHP02: Electronics

    And they're working splendidly, except that whenever I use the built in controls it turns on the stock music player. I prefer WinAmp as it works great between my PC and phone, and would vastly prefer not having to switch music players, though I may do so if the controls can only be used for that one. Does anyone know how I might be able to change such a thing?

    I have the Motorola S9 HD BT headset. I have no issues using them with Winamp. The only suggestion I have for you is to make sure your settings in winamp are correct. Particularly "Control Headset" should be checked. Hope that helped.

    Have you tried Plug in Launcher? (in the market)

    It always bothered me that the Droid stock music player got launched every time I selected BT on my car audio. I wanted Pandora or DoubleTwist to launch, but there was that annoying stock music player!

    Since I found Plug in Launcher, I can control what gets launched (or not launched) and what additional actions to take, like adjusting vol.

    The Pro version for 99 cents is a bargain in my view.
