I think most bluetooth headsets' PIN numbers can be changed fro their
default, but you have to connect them with USB and run a driver, either
that or set it after you have paired the device and unpaired it, usually
it's in the settings where you set the device name, you might need to
hook it in via USB or whatever connection is provided (usually USB)
