Can this please be re-opened? Daniel van Vugt marked it as "won't fix" in comment #14 due to Ubuntu 17.10 being end of life, but numerous people are still encountering the problem with more recent versions. I'm encountering it on Ubuntu 19.10 and a new Sony WH-1000XM3.
If this bug can't be re-opened, should we create a new bug for more recent versions of Ubuntu? -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Touch seeded packages, which is subscribed to alsa-driver in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1724919 Title: Bluetooth headphones only use A2DP when connected manually Status in alsa-driver package in Ubuntu: Won't Fix Bug description: Issue with Sony MDR-1ABT Bluetooth headphones: Once paired, the headphones will be connected automatically whenever they are switched on. However when connected this way, only the HSP/HFP profile will work and trying to change to A2DP in sound settings does nothing. If the headphones are then manually disconnected and reconnected from Bluetooth settings, they will initially use HSP/HFP but then selecting A2DP in sound settings will successfully make them use A2DP.
