    Same issue here, using the Nokia BH-905 (first version) and am also experiencing sound shifted to the left after upgrading to iOS 4.3. No issues using the headset via laptop or directly connecting using a cable.

    Very annoying, I hope Apple will include a fix in iOS 4.3.1.

    Same here: Balance shift to left. I hate this.

    First I thought: f**in' Nokia!
    But when I connect my *Nokia BH-905* to tne Nokia N86 8MP - No poroblemo.
    So the iOS 4.3 ist the bad guy

    Once I got it right, but I don't remember the workaround anymore.

    I just got the bh-905i so I don't have any experience on anything other than 4.3. My headphones don't seem to have the "left side bias" but they do have another annoying problem. When I am listening to music and I pause, using the switch on the headphones, and then at some point soon thereafter I press play again - it will play for a short while (10s to 1m) and then cut out completely like the connection has been list from the phone. I can't control anything and if I go to the phone it is still playing, and I can't cause sound to go back to the headphones. The only thing that seems to solve it is to turn the headphones and/or iphone off and then back on.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    My problem is similar and I'm trying to determine if it is the BH-905i or iOS 4.3 that is the problem. Can pair up and play and everything sounds great, but after some period of time the sound will stop coming out of the headphones. The Bluetooth icon shows it as paired but the option to select the output source in the iPod app is gone. Powering off and repairing doesn't help as the phone shows paired but still sends no sound to the headphones and has no output select icon in iPod. The only thing that fixes it is to cycle the Bluetooth off and backon, start the iPod player,and then turn the headphones on.

    What do you think? Is this an iOS 4.3 bug or is there a problem with my 905i?

    No, it doesn't when streaming via A2DP. Not a real big deal, though steering wheel control would be nice. Kia makes a cable to plug an iphone/ipod into the built in USB/Aux inputs that is required to control it from the steering wheel. I'll probably spring for it. Makes sense since I have to take it out of my pocket to control the music streaming anyway.

    I'm not sure but I suspect the iPhone 4 might be controllable via bluetooth. I'll have to ask some friends who have them.

    Sorry folks,

    IOS 4.3.1 did not fix the problem :-(((((

    Deleted all Bluetooth devices, reseted the BH-905, started the iPhone up again, paired with Nokia, started iPod section and again:

    All sound coming from the left side.

    Apple, it worked with former IOS version. What did you screw up?

    I have the exact same problem with ios4.3 (and 4.3.1) with my iphone 3GS an nokia BH 905i.
    It used to work flawlessly on iOS 4.2.1

    And it is still working flawlessly on my laptop.

    I don't know what apple screwed up with this iOS update but please make it go back to what it used to be!!
    We can't even go back to 4.2.1

    I got a workaround:
    Unpair iPhone and BH-905
    Pair them again
    Conect the BH-905 - it will play left side louder.
    Swich off the BH-905 and switch it on again.
    Click on play till it begins to play.
    Balance worked for me.

    I don't want to do it again, I want to listen to the music today

    I just got the Nokia BH-905i yesterday. My iPhone 4 is already at 4.3.1. I have the same exact issue as you. The left side of the headset is noticeably louder than the right side, with the right side sounded muffled. Just like you, it happens when listening to music or answering calls. Out of curiosity, i also tested my wife Sony DR-BT50 headset. Same problem! Because i had used the DR-BT50 headset prior to updating to 4.3/4.3.1, i know this issue did not exist back in 4.2.1.

    The only fix appears to be letting Apple aware of this issue and hoping a fix will come along in a future iOS update.
