  Can't connect/pair Bose Soundlink II Headphones to Ubuntu 16.04

Status in bluez package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've recently started using 16.04 on a Dell XPS 15 9550 and I'm unable
  to pair my Bose Soundlink II headphones. I've tried using the stock
  and blueman bluetooth managers and neither will work.

  When I use bluetoothctl and run "pair [Device ID]" I get the following

  Failed to pair: org.bluez.Error.AuthenticationFailed

  I have seen several references to this online but believe there are
  still problems in 16.04

    Installed: 5.37-0ubuntu5
    Candidate: 5.37-0ubuntu5
    Version table:
   *** 5.37-0ubuntu5 500
          500 http://gb.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu xenial/main amd64 Packages
          100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
