• Connecting to Sony WH-CH500


    Hi,
    I am trying to pair/connect my Sony headset over bluetooth. However, the device is not found by blueman or bluetoothctl, while other devices (like my phone) are. I already copied the missing driver from https://github.com/winterheart/broadcom-bt-firmware to /lib/firmware/brcm/ and installed pulseaudio-bluetooth.

  • Welcome @metalvoidzz

    Do you have bluetooth enabled in systemd?

    Paste here the output of:

    sudo systemctl status bluetooth.service

    ?

  • @judd The service is loaded:

  • That looks good .

    Do you have installed pavucontrol or what audio input/output do you use?

  • Ok sorry, I didn’t realise the headset has a pairing mode, which I only have to activate for subsequent devices (already connected to my phone) 😅 Oh well…

  • @metalvoidzz if a2dp (hifi-bluetooth) is not aviable in pulsecontrol, disconnect and reconnect device and it will be available…
