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


@marc-edcc: your method works the most consistently. I've rebooted
multiple times, connecting and disconnecting the headset with my phone
and other devices, and turning it on and off, and also connecting and
disconnecting from the 16.04 laptop, and I haven't had a single problem

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
  hsp/hfp (telephony duplex).

  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:
