I recently paired a brand new Jabra Halo v2 (Supports: HFA, HSP, a2dp) and although the device pairs with Ubuntu 12.04 (same issue in 11.10) just fine it doesn't show up as a audio device profile under Sound Settings.

Did you pair the headset with another machine or OS before trying? – Takkat Apr 3 '12 at 6:58
Nope.. Only paired with my laptop – bkerensa Apr 4 '12 at 7:27
Just guessing: with my setup here I had to delete the device first and pair it again to get it finally connected. This may be different with you hardware. Nevertheless its worth a try. – Takkat Apr 4 '12 at 8:07
Is pulseaudio-module-bluetooth installed? – elmicha May 1 '12 at 15:08

This appears to be a regression in 12.04. If you visit the launchpad page linked below and both subscribe for updates to the bug and mark it as affecting you, you can help increase its priority.

Try Ubuntu 12.10. I had a lot of problems in 12.04 with the bluetooth. I have a usb bluetooth dongle with Broadcom chipset that works fine - now I can listen music with my MW600 headset and this is A2DP in pulse audio.
