This question is pretty old now, but this may help some lost soul (as I was, one hour ago).
Install blueman

sudo aptitude install bluemanand launch it (either by blueman-manager, or from the System -> Preferences menu, in "Bluetooth manager").
Don't forget to select custom pin code, and enter 0000 in order to pair the headsets. And also, use it as "audio sink".
Finally, open sound preferences, and select the headsets in the "output" tab.
