Public bug reported:

I have a Bose NC 700 pair of headphones. The device works correctly with
Android and Windows (al be it more cumbersome and confusing in Windows).

Firmware 1.5.1-9303+d287f23
GUID: 5c097385-cd87-d8dd-bab9-4c726a0ac560

I am available to test.

Problem 1: I am required to click on the "connect" toggle button for the
Bluetooth audio device about 20 - 30 times to make it connect. This is
also true for other speakers as for example JBL Bluetooth speakers.

Problem 2: BOSE Headset/Gnome BT Audio configuration. I am unable to
switch between HSP/DSP mode to A2DP Sink. The device remains connected
as a communication device and not as an audio device. I remain stuck
with mono sound. Though the gnome control panel indicates that I have
indeed switched to A2DP Sink. However, when I click "test" I only get
the mono test and the sound is absolutely unusable.   Because there is a
microphone on the headphones, Gnome control panel and the underlying
Bluetooth service refuse to change from HSP/DSP. Clearly this is not by
