Bluetooth With SSDR for IOS

I have a Flex-6600 on order since July and hope it will be here before Xmas.  One of the things that sold me on the Flex is the IOS app.

My question is can a blue-tooth Headset/Mic operate the 6600 properly?  The mic is very important to me and I wounder if the SSDR for IOS also supports VOX with a blue-tooth headset/Mic

I pads are on sale everywhere for $100 plus off and it seems like a good time to purchase the Ipad Pro 12.9 2017 right now as I have seen the 12.9 Ipad pro (2017) w/256g for the low $800's....

Thanks for any and all input!

I have used various Logitech headsets that last for hours

 Recently I have restarted using Apple plug in Ears buds that came included with my old iPhones... just because they are far less bulky and fit in my shirt pocket.

If you wish splurge, then you can always use Apple Airpods

Which have superb performance but @$169 are not cheap.



Bottom Line.. most headsets sound pretty good

Have the Bluetooth Headset BlueParrott B450-XT with SSDR and Flex6600M
but when I try to switch to PC the Mic works but No sound when using Rx on PC laptop

Since Bluetooth Headset only Work with Apple IOS devices since Flex SSDR 
can not get to work routing the Audio properly on a PC with SSDR, only on
Apple IOS devices !!!! Go figure !

Seems both ( Only Rx Headset ) or ( Tx Mic ) with not work due to SSDR on PC 
have to toggle SSDR between Defalt ( Rx ) and PC (Tx ) which is useless for a SSB
contact !!!!

I am using a Plantronics Legend headset with an iPad Pro. The headphones work great but the mic doesn't work. Anybody have this combo working with SDR iOS?

Have any of you had trouble planning slice A to left and B to right using the AirPods? When I try this, I still hear each slice in each ear. (Yes, I have “Allow Stereo” enabled.)
