[Bug 1438510] Re: [REGRESSION] bluetooth headset no longer supports a2dp

Then, next time I connect the headset, it will be in "Headset Head Unit
(HSP/HFP)" mode, but when I switch to "High Fidelity Playback (A2DP
Sink)" every single time it successfully plays back audio.

Bug description:
  Just installed 15.04 fresh from the latest ISO (beta2).

  I'm bummed to see my bluetooth headset (Bose Soundlink overear) seems
  to have regressed in functionality.

  In 14.10, I was able to set the output profile either to a2dp or

  In 15.04, it only works in telephony duplex mode.  I can't get high
  fidelity sound playback to work at all.

  This thread seems to be related, though the workaround within did not solve the problem for me:
