Hi Wes, here is a paste of the terminal on the box running Mint 13 fresh install dropped back from Mint 14, was unstable for my IP connect plus I didn't like the desk as well.
 
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 0a12:0001 Cambridge Silicon Radio, Ltd Bluetooth Dongle (HCI mode)
This is the device I wish to pair with the headphone that is blinking blue, fresh charged.
 
As I replied to Joe I gonna go now to try a How to stream music from box to headphone using bluetooth so not to have a tether to the headphone. I will report back
