I put the sound track down for a screen cast with my Sony bluetooth headset. The result was not good, I had to redo it later with a wired mic. I then saw a video review of a higher quality bluetooth headset, but alas again the sound is no good from the mic:

This answer on Quora seems to indicate that with current standards bluetooth microophone audio will always suck, unless you hack the mic stream into some data protocol of bluetooth.
