Hmmm. Way too complicated probably, but if you can actually get the device to pair and sink it as an audio device, then you can do this:

mplayer -ao alsa:device=bluetooth

and it may or may not require ~/.asoundrc that looks like

pcm.bluetooth {
    type bluetooth

I heard audio at least one time from my headphones via mplayer that least before the batteries ran out.

Open question: Why doesn't it just show up like a normal alsa device? Meh.
