How to pair a Bose Quiet Comfort 35 with your Ubuntu computer
You need to disable "Bluetooth low energy", then follow these core steps:
- Make sure the headphones are in pairing mode.
- Pair with System Settings > Bluetooth. On 16.04 I had to choose "proceed without pairing" and enter the PIN "0000"
- Select & test the headphones in System Settings > Sound. Choose High Fidelity Playback (A2DP Sink).
I also had to install a package with
sudo apt-get install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth and load it with
pactl load-module module-bluetooth-discover. Put the latter command into
~/.bashrc or you'll need to run it after each boot.
- If you can see the headset in your Bluetooth devices list, but it won't succeed to connect: Remove the device and search for it again. It should successfully establish the connection.
