Currently Being ModeratedMar 16, 2011 6:52 AM (in response to mrk)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.iOS 4

Currently Being ModeratedMar 17, 2011 2:16 AM (in response to rad1)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.

Currently Being ModeratedMar 18, 2011 7:01 PM (in response to MaxMad)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?
Currently Being ModeratedMar 20, 2011 4:16 PM (in response to Thomas Easterday)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?iPhone 4, iOS 4
Currently Being ModeratedMar 23, 2011 2:05 PM (in response to RobertCrisler)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.17" iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.6), iPhone 3G, iPod Shuffle, iPod Nano, MacBook
Currently Being ModeratedMar 26, 2011 12:24 AM (in response to Graf Zeppelin)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?

Currently Being ModeratedMar 27, 2011 11:49 PM (in response to Graf Zeppelin)Yeps,
Same experience as you had. iOS 4.3.1 did not correct the issue and the sound still mainly comes from the left side and the bass boost and surround controls are still disabled. Pleeeeeeassssse Apple, bring back the profiles of iOS 4.2.1 !

Currently Being ModeratedMar 29, 2011 3:16 PM (in response to Thomas Easterday)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 4.2.1ipone 3GS, iOS 4

Currently Being ModeratedApr 4, 2011 11:27 PM (in response to MaxMad)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 todayiPhone 4 iOS 4.3 - iMac (2008) - Dell Vostro 3700 Windows 7 Pro, Mac OS X (10.6.6)
Currently Being ModeratedApr 7, 2011 12:35 PM (in response to applefan32)Thanks applefan32, that worked just fine on my iPad. Hopefully this will get a proper fix someetime, but for now this will do.
Currently Being ModeratedApr 8, 2011 4:51 PM (in response to MaxMad)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.Mac Pro (early 2008) Dual Quad-core 2.8 GHz, MacBook Air 1.6 GHz (late 2008), Mac OS X (10.6.7), 6 GB RAM, ACD 23"
