I have Bluetooth headphones Sony WH-1000XM3 and Ubuntu 16.04. I have successfully Paired the device but cannot change profile to a2dp. No matter what I did it keeps failing with the message "Failed to change profile to a2dp_sink".

I have tried:

Nothing works. Please Help.

Some info:

  • bluez 5.37-0ubuntu5.1
