Possible to stream audio to multiple bluetooth headsets at once.


Is it possible to stream audio to multiple bluetooth headsets on the same using dongle, simultaneously?

Maybe. But since you say nothing about what kind of hardware, version/distro of Linux, and how you're planning on streaming it, it's hard to say.

A very little bit of research would have told you that most Bluetooth headphones that come with their own dongle, can only pair to ONE Bluetooth device. So, one dongle=one headphone. A 'generic' Bluetooth dongle can pair to multiple devices, but you'll have to set up Bluetooth-Alsa, or a similar bluetooth audio protocol, and pair to the headphones.

Android isn't Linux, and the your phone should be able to pair to multiple devices. Whether or not it can play to both is a different matter. Best thing you can do is just try it, and if it doesn't work, try looking on an Android forum.
