A2DP - smartphone media player



I have a Lobster phone which I use on my walk to and from work to listen to either DAB or mp3.

I bought a pair of DR-BT30QB from play Direct Link and have them working reasonably well for WMA (DAB won't work).

All my tracks were mp3's which would play in the windows media player on the phone but would break up throughout the track. Upon some searching I found it was recommended to convert them to WMA. So I set up a sync in Media monkey to transfer files to my phone and convert to WMA on the fly.
Worked great and the tracks play fine.

However I have a couple of issues.

When I put the bluetooth on on the phone and switch on the headphones, although paired the headphones do not play the music. Each time I have to goto the bluetooth settings and set as wireless stereo which is about 8 buttons in.

Also the phone slows down quite a bit when playing tracks.

Are there any better smartphone media apps that are less processor sensitive.
