Mic to work Siri when iphone is connected to computer via bluetooth

I am using my phone (Iphone 6, iOS8 to stream music to my computer via bluetooth audio (I am using a service called Deezer that only works as an app on the phone, not available on PC yet).  I keep my phone plugged in to power source and use talk to type features quite a bit and started using the "Hey Siri" function (hands free activation of Siri).

What is odd is that - when I am connected to computer via bluetooth and I say "Hey Siri", Siri will activate.  However, it will not pick up any more of my vocal commands.  My theory is that when connected to bluetooth it is expecting the mic in to come from the computer.  I don't have a mic on my computer, but wondering if someone could confirm this theory before I buy a mic (and would I buy a normal computer mic or would I have to go with something like a bluetooth mic).

Although I am answering from pure speculation and not hard facts, I really doubt that getting a mic would solve your problem. While the computer may in fact be really trying to connect a computer microphone, I am not sure if the iPhone will accept voice input from a mic. While I am writing this, I thought of something though... Connect your phone as you normally do using bluetooth... Right click on your sound icon and select "Recording Devices"... if any other devices are displayed right click on either an iphone icon or bluetooth and "Set as Default".

Hope this helps
