I have Sony's WH1000XM2 Bluetooth headphones. Unfortunately , with Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, the only connection procedure that works is as follows:

  1. Turn on the headphones.

  2. The headphones connect, but to all 3 audio profiles ("AudioSink, "Headset" and "Handsfree").

  3. Currently, no sound will be played.

  4. I then need to disconnect the "Headset" or "Handsfree" profile (works for both) in BlueMan and then reconnect only the "AudioSink" profile.

  5. Sometimes I also need to manually switch to A2DP, but most of the time I dont need to.

So my question is as follows:

  1. Can I somehow disable the profiles for this specific device?

  2. Can I maybe automate the process somehow?
