The computer may not be choosing the right hardware to play.

Open the Sound settings (open your Dash and type sound). Go to the Output tab. You should see more than one option.

Sound settings — Output

Click the one that references your Bluetooth headphones. (You may have to double-click it.) Adjust the sounds as required. You can also use the Test Sound button.

[Image]… I select the headset and use the test button, but I have got the same problem... – honky Jan 18 '13 at 13:50
If i change the sound card to the headset and i play music or any sound, the headset is sizzle, or no sound. – honky Jan 18 '13 at 14:01
I'm sorry, I do not know what to do from here. Have you tried the changing the Mód settings where it says Telefon duplex (HSP/HSP)? – Paddy Landau Jan 18 '13 at 19:58
No, i think it's correct. Mód settings means: the protocol when the headset is connected to the bluetooth stick. Teszt mean: test. When i push the test button, the headset is soundless, or sizzle. – honky Jan 19 '13 at 16:14
Nevertheless, have you tried changing the Mód setting? You can easily change it back. I have sometimes been surprised by the settings that do work. – Paddy Landau Jan 19 '13 at 19:41
