What is A2DP and what does it do?

A2DP (Advanced Audio Distribution Profile) is a Bluetooth profile that defines how multimedia audio can be streamed from one device to another over a Bluetooth connection.

Most Sennheiser Bluetooth headphones utilized the A2DP profile as it allows for the best audio transmission over Bluetooth hence providing the best audio in the headphones.

NOTE: If the device you are connecting to does not support A2DP there may be connectivity issues between the Sennheiser unit and the device. In situations like this most Bluetooth Chipset manufacturers offer firmware updates to the Bluetooth chip to allow the A2DP profile to be utilized.
