• A2DP Sink and microphone don't work together with bluetooth headset


    I have a weird problem with my Black Bluedio Turbine Bluetooth headset. When I use the A2DP sink (which sounds the best) I cannot use my headset microphone. If I switch it to HSP/HFP (sounds like every sound is coming out of a tin can playing the AM radio) the microphone does work. I remember on Ubuntu 16.10 a while back I could set it to use the microphone, disconnect the device, reconnect, and then set it to A2DP sink. However, this doesn’t seem to work anymore on Antergos. Is there any way to fix this issue?

  • it looks like that bluetooth stack is only getting headset work together with mic, but hifi (A2DP) sound only connects as headphone without mic…

  • @joekamprad The thing is that it has worked in the past on other operating systems. For example, it worked just fine on Windows. On Ubuntu 16.10 I could also get it to work by enabling the device’s microphone in settings, disabling headset, reconnecting headset, and switching audio profile to A2DP sink. I was for a while able to get this working in Manjaro KDE with the Pulse Audio Volume Control tool. I have that installed right now on Antergos and it doesn’t work anymore. It also stopped working in Manjaro KDE after some updates. This is a common issue with Linux too I guess. Check out this article. Loads of people confirmed it.

    Edit: This was in Ubuntu 16.10 that is worked!

  • bluetooth audio is crappy under linux, and also on windows… at the moment i have huge problems getting A2DP work at all, i need to disconnect and connect again 2 times, or remove the headset at all and repair it…

    as you can see input is shown up here too:

  • The reason why it worked in Ubuntu is they have made major improvements to bluetooth in the last couple of months pre-release of 17.10. Hopefully! This improvements will land upstream and improve every distro in the weeks to come.

  • @izznogooood said in A2DP Sink and microphone don't work together with bluetooth headset:

    I hope so too! This seems to be a big problem with every non-Ubuntu distro.

  • I do not know if all the developers are ad-honorem, that is, they do not charge for their codes and developments, so always, always there to spread a little so that everything will fit, in each distro, because; the developers also have a life just that.-

  • @izznogooood would be nice, as bluetooth is kind of useless at the moment…
