sound with bluetooth earphone

I've paired a BT earphone to a debian stable box.
the BT gnome applet shows my earphone is paired.

how do I stream sound to/from the earphone (for example, to use with skype)?
alsa sound preferences doesnt show a BT entry.

also, "hcitool scan" doesnt find anything (although the gnome-applet shows the earphone is paired).
