Stumbled across this, saved me from going insane. Thanks man.

Is there any info on what this actually does?

Specifically why the need for ssp of and what adding the user to the lp group provides.

After I initiate these steps, do you recommend using the Arch Bluetooth wiki approach from the command line? Do you use Bose Connect at all to initiate pairing on the headphones or do you hold the power switch for 2 seconds to initiate the pairing process? I'm currently running Arch with plasma desktop and have not gotten the headphones to pair.

@jwj1217 I'm not using Arch Linux anymore but when I've used I just paired normally with my QC35. I wasn't using Bose Connect. Are you using pulseaudio?
