Probably not. But you can buy a nice little adapter with A2DP stereo
Look on eBay for item number 120308854198 (do a search for that number)
For 9.99 and free shipping, it's a low profile USB thing, looks very handy.

I think it supports. Just have a look at this tutorial: http://www.lytebyte.com/2008/07/06/how-to-connect-
I have bought a Plantronics Pulsar 260 and trying to use for listening music but something seems to be going wrong, because I am able to make and receive calls but not Music.
If any one finds further keep posted. I will also do the same.

After spending time on the phone with HP support, they ended up telling me sorry -- guess your headset is not compatible. I just purchased this laptop on February 16th, and got it specifically because it had bluetooth, so I was furious. During the process, I allowed them to take over with remote assistance and the tech did attempt to install a driver. He really did try to help but I guess the support manual took him as far as he could go. He said that really, the necessary drivers were all there.
Anyway, this bothered me to no end. I have had no problems with the headset working on my cell, and the on my laptop, the bluetooth pairing found it, and installed the driver successfully. In my frustration I kept googling all sorts of phrases -- how to install bluetooth on hp notebook, does hp notebook (my model) work with bluetooth, compatible headsets for hp pavillion laptop, etc etc. Well, I ended up somehow on the drivers page for hp and I just searched the page for bluetooth, saw a bluetooth support driver. I installed the driver, deleted my headset so I could reinstall with new driver. It could not find my device! After several attempts, and indesperation, I did a total shut down, turned on my headset, TURNED OFF MY CELL PHONE BLUE TOOTH -- it was using the headset -- duh! And then voila! It paired. So now here came the test -- would there be a profile for bluetooth headset under sounds in the control panel. There was! So, folks, try installing this driver and see if it works for you. If you have any problems, post because there were a few other things I did that you may already know to do so I won't list them here unless someone has a problem with this driver.

Yes, it works superb,mine is dv6500 AMD processor.
I also had a chat with Support guys and they gave me following driver path,
Bluetooth drivers: : ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp38001-38500/sp38167
And its better if one upgrades Audio drivers also:
Conexant High-Definition Audio Driver: ftp://ftp.hp.com/pub/softpaq/sp40001-40500/sp40170
Now I can listen to stereo music on my Plantronics Pulsar 260
