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?

@jwj1217 The Linux kernel fucked up Bluetooth for Bose QC35 around version 5.13, I suggest downgrading the kernel firstly. I couldn't get the headset to connect automatically, I need to hold down to pair before I connect with bluetoothctl connect XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX, no Bose app needed.

tx andrealmar for sharing this, but if you want to use microphone on bluetooth you need to switch profile to HSP/HFP and installing offono to have mics working but it is still not great because with this profile HPF you have a noise sound in the background that is very anoying i try "Enable Echo/Noise-Cancellation" to /etc/pulse/default.pa but i still have this anoying sound...
