I did a clean install of Ubuntu GNOME 16.04.1 just a few days ago. With the
Ubuntu-provided Pulseaudio packages, my Plantronics BackBeat Go 2 (PLT_BBTGO2)
bluetooth headphones would connect and then disconnect. I have now added your
PPA and confirmed that the headphones connect and stay connected. Oddly
enough, the headphone profile was set to "Analog" by default. Upon clicking
the dropdown to select the profile, "Analog" was not an option, and it
immediately auto-selected HSP/HFP. I then changed it to A2DP and I was able to
hear nice, high quality audio through my headphones! :)
Unfortunately, after turning the headphones off/on, the headphones
immediately reconnected and defaulted to the A2DP profile, but there was
no sound. I then changed the profile to HSP/HSF and heard low quality
audio. Changing back to A2DP resulted in silence. I toggled between
the two profiles a few times and the issue persisted.
I then powered off/on once again, and this time I was able to properly
select the A2DP profile and hear perfect audio!
So, the connection issue seems to be fixed (for me, atleast)! There
seems to be something that is a little bit strange with the audio
profile selection, although there may be some user error involved here.
I'll try and repeat my power cycling tests a few more times and see if
the issue is a software problem or a user problem.
Thanks for looking into this!

pulseaudio crashes when connecting to bluetooth headphones (due to
Status in pulseaudio package in Ubuntu:
When I attempt to connect my Jaybird Bluebuds X to Ubuntu 16.04
pulseaudio crashes, this does *NOT* happen with a Jambox which leads
me to believe it's an intermittent problem with some hardware. This
did not happen on Ubuntu 15.10 (which was an upgrade of 15.04).
