I am currently able to use my powerbeats pro as headphones with Ubuntu 20.04. However, I would like to use my headphones as a headset in certain situations.

However, the microphone on my headphones doesn't get recognized by the computer and instead uses the built-in microphone on the laptop.

I try switching audio profiles from A2DP to HFP/HSP using blueman but whenever I do it says "failed to change profile to headset_head_unit". Also when I use pulseaudio volume control and I try to switch the profile to HFP/HSP it says it is "unavailable".
