Apparently, my 2009 MacBook just won't work with the headset. I just picked up an iMac. I'll let you know how it works.

MacBook Pro - 15-inch, Early 2011 - Software Mac OS X Lion 10.7.5 (11G63)
When I first connected my new JayBird Freedom 3 had the same problem and kept getting a bluetooth error report and then reverting back to macbook speakers.
From the bluetooth drop down instead of selecting Jaybird Freedom 3 > Use as Audio Device which gave the problem I went instead to the other option and opened Sound Preferences > Output tab > JayBird Freedom 3 Stereo (works with both I checked) and ...........SUCESS!

I have a MacBook Pro with Retina- 15 inch OS X 10.8.2
I just came home with a pair of Jaybird Freedom's and had no problem pairing them, they just drop offline and the sound comes out of the laptop speakers.
I have tried Brian's suggestion without success. I keep getting the pop up window stating "A Bluetooth audio error occurred"
This is extremely frustrating, any suggestions?

I also had the same issue. I tried the suggestions in this post and was unsuccessful.
I resolved mine by these steps:
1. Activate paring on Jaybird headset
2. Click on "Set up Bluetooth Device" on Mac
3. Select your Jaybird to pair with. (It will tell you it is already paired if you have already tried)
4. Click Ok and Continue, then it should pair with device.
My headset immediately connected and the sound worked good.

When you try to pair again, just make sure the device isn't connected with another bluetooth and make sure the Mac's bluetooth is discoverable. Then you can just press middle(answer) button on headset and it will pair.
