Well, I found a workaround solution to the issue. I posted a similar question over on the BlueZ developer mail list and got several responses. It seems that there was a regression bug introduced somewhere in Linux Kernel 3.0 that was related to the Bluetooth Secure Simple Pairing (SSP) protocol used by Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR devices. The bug prevents ...

Default Ubuntu Bluetooth Pairing Open the Bluetooth setting by clicking on the Bluetooth symbol on the top panel: Choose + in the bottom left corner of the following window: Put your Bluetooth device in "Pairing Mode". Check with your manual on how to do this. The MEElectronics AF9-BK headset will enter pairing mode by turning the device OFF and then ...

I made it work the following way : Before going further : Update your system (I'm running 13.10) Remove blueman Install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth, pavucontrol (Utility to set up pulseaudio) and make sure bluez is installed Remove any "Disable=Socket" or "Enable=Socket" entry in file /etc/bluetooth/audio.conf (edit with sudo) Steps : Put device in ...

You'll need to install an app called pavucontrol and use it to set the default device for Skype to that headset.

Managing soundcards and audio devices USB and Bluetooth audio devices are individual sound cards, which means that connecting a Bluetooth headset doesn't work like connecting a headset via 3.5mm audio jack, where jack sensing assumes that you want to play audio through the recently connected headset instead of the laptop speakers. Therefore when adding new ...

For some more settings I would advice to install pavucontrol. It saved me some troubles diagnosing sound issues. It also will list any possible output where Ubuntu sound sometimes forgets to show outputs that should be available (though it keeps getting better: HDMI used to not show up; 1 update after 12.10 release it started showing up. You too will be ...

The short answer You have to use special branded Bluetooth dongles. Have a look at the How can I use aptX then? section of this answer or browse the aptx.com site for transmitters. Questions not answered in this post: How can I check and verify an established connection for the codec it uses? The longer answer Licensing issues The aptX ...

As far as I know PulseAudio is an audio server with the ability to route sound in the way you want. Install PulseAudio Volume Control to be able to change where inputs and outputs go. sudo apt-get install pavucontrol In this manner I have routed Skype output to my headset only and my mic solely into Skype, Whilst having everything else running through ...

It is ok. It's for the optical audio output for HD quality. Possible Solution: Optical Audio Jack always on: Macbook Pro 5,2 - Natty

This may not be your problem, but I had similar trouble with a plantronics usb headset and found my solution here. The steps for the fix are provided in comment #4 and comment #6, and reiterated handily in step #11.

The G35 (and G930) are what is known as a virtual 7.1 headset. So Pulseaudio is correctly identifying it as a stereo headset, as it contains only two speakers - left and right. Under windows, the driver does some trickery to make it seem as if the headset is 7.1, but it doesn't actually have the physical speakers. So alas, you're out of luck with this ...

In a standard Bluetooth setup we can change the profile of a Bluetooth audio device from the Hardware tab in Sound settings: Alternatively we can use the command line to switch profiles: pactl set-card-profile <name or index of card> <profile> After we had chosen the profile to "Off" it will not be shown in the Output tab as a valid audio ...

The behaviour you observe indicates that these controls are not implemented in your Spotify client. Media key control via a Bluetooth headset is transmitted via DBus MPRIS protocol to the player to be further processed there. You can test this by running Rhythmbox which should have a full implementation of the MPRIS standard (but unforutnately a Spotify ...

It seems to me that you are using a custom kernel, since linux 3.2.7, as listed in your uname -a output has a higher version number than the current release 12.04 kernel (3.2.0-29). (It's also lower than the current 12.10 kernel). Looking at the output of lsmod we can see that there is no module snd_usb_audio in the list of loaded modules. You need that to ...

I had the same issue just now when I was trying to pair my lenovo z570 with my nokia bh503 headset. I found it impossible with the default manager, but then I installed blueman. You can do that via the terminal (CTRL+ALT+T): sudo apt-get install blueman or via the Software-Center: With that installed I ran bluetooth manager from the applications list, ...

You can try blueman application. This app can help you to play audio through A2DP streaming. You just have to mark your device profile as "Audio destination". To install, use this command: sudo apt-get install blueman Open it by typing "blueman" in the dash. I'll try to update the answer with necessary screenshot later

As of Ubuntu 10.04, uinput module that handles such buttons is not started by default. To fix the situation: Stop bluetooth service sudo service bluetooth stop Enable uinput module sudo modprobe uinput Start bluetooth service back again sudo service bluetooth start That should fix the issue temporarily, until restart. To fix it permanently, run: echo ...

I have solved it by following the steps below: open the Sound Settings; select the device in the "Play sound through" pane; select "High Fidelity Playback (A2DP)" in the "Mode" combo box; make sure the "Mute" checkbox is unchecked.

Windows and Linux are different. There is no way in Linux to specifically set one application to output from one device while having another application output from another device. The functionality just does not exist in Ubuntu at this time.

Where I have had audio problems and connection issues I have found the using Pulse Audio Volume Controller usually helps if you are nervous of using alsamixer which is still good Here you can set what inputs and levels in a little clearer method First install it in a terminal sudo apt-get install pavucontrol Then hit alt + f2 and type pulse and up should ...

OP has solved the problem themselves and posted as a comment I did manage to figure it out, although not a great solution. For some reason if I switched the sound to mono I was able to get the microphone working.

right Click on speaker icon, then click on playback device. Then Select your headset and below change drop down lsit box to default. Done :)

It is unlikely that the phone is configured to be used as Bluetooth handset. Typical cellphone profiles include storage devices (access to directories on the cellphone), smartphone, and data links (Tethered internet). It is unlikely to provide a headset over Bluetooth. A Bluetooth headset should work well.

Problem was solved with a fresh install I would love to provide, however the problem went away after a fresh install. Something I was meaning to do anyway, not because of the sound issues. You can't close questions right?
