The system was included as standard equipment from 2006 - 2008 model years.

It does not matter if the audio system is turned on or not.

Can I listen to music on my Acura TSX 07 on hfl?

No, the HFL only identifies itself as a headset for phone calls. I have been able to conduct "calls" via Google Hangouts on an Android phone and iOS device (iPad), though.
