Bad Bluetooth Audio on Ubuntu

Every now and again I’d connect my Soundcore Q30 bluetooth headphones to my ubuntu laptop and they would sound like garbage. I finally decided to look up what the deal was and found this.

The solution that worked is to edit /etc/bluetooth/main.conf

sudo nano /etc/bluetooth/main.conf

In that file, copy and paste this right under the [General] heading

# Automatically connect both A2DP and HFP/HSP profiles for incoming
# connections. Some headsets that support both profiles will only connect the
# other one automatically so the default setting of true is usually a good
# idea.

Then search in that file for MultiProfile and change it from off to multiple

MultiProfile = multiple

Then restart the bluetooth service by running

sudo systemctl restart bluetooth 

I reconnected my headphones and they sound great!
