I've had issues with bluetooth stereo headphones (Motorola S805 and Plantronics Voyager 855) for a while, and still do with iOS 4.1.
The headphones get into a state where the audio will drop out unexpectedly for a few seconds, then work again, then drop out. Very intermittent. This seems to happen when I leave my headphones on and walk away with my phone (going out of range) and return later-- the connection get flaky and doesn't seem to fix itself.
What fixes things reliably is:
1) turn off the headphones,
2) turn off the iPhone's bluetooth (Settings, General > Bluetooth, OFF),
3) go back to the iPhone's home screen,
4) turn the iPhone's bluetooth back on,
5) turn the headphones back on and reconnect to the iPhone.
I'm not sure if turning the headphones off and on or turning the iPhone's bluetooth off and on fixes it, but I can't reliably reproduce the flakiness so can't be as scientific as I'd like, and this procedure does work for me.
