Default Connect to two Bluetooth headsets simultaneously?

I want to buy two in ear Bluetooth headsets to use as wireless headphones to listen to music with. I've been researching if it's possible to sync two headsets to one phone, and from what I've seen, whether or not this is possible is largely hardware dependent. I was wondering if any of you have done this with the i747 and can confirm it works before I buy anything

Just to be clear, I'm not talking about multipoint, which allows one Bluetooth headset to sync with two phones.

I personally did this but with two different brand units. They never seemed "in sync" with each other. I suppose using the same models may have solved that issue but wasn't able to try. Instead a purchased a pair of Motorola Bluetooth ear buds and love them.

That's good to know, I just bought two of the same model, so hopefully it'll just work. I'll report back results

So they just came in and my phone will only sync one at a time. Gonna keep doing research but I'll post findings here since a lot if this seems to be hardware specific

I just tried this also, with two identical DB power Mini Bluetooth earpieces. Only one will pair at a time, so it doesn't work with these either, just so anyone interested in these knows ahead of time. You can set one up for phone audio, and one for media audio though, at the same time.
