Bluetooth mic - works in 18.xx+?

This is not a problem as such, just an enquiry about other people's
experience.

Can anyone using any version of Ubuntu 18.04 LTS or later AND using a
bluetooth earphones+mic combo confirm whether the microphone does in
fact work? By autoswitching out of A2DP to HSP/HFP mode or by any other
means...

Regards, K.

PS: Please don't waste everybody's time with theories :-) This has been
EXTENSIVELY discussed in numerous forums. Just looking for actual
direct experience of a working setup on 18.xx or later.

Hi Karl,

means...

I don't use anything like that on a regular basis, but as you asked thought I would try it on my 19.04 system, and with the
Bluetooth headset I have, it all seemed to work. I made a test call to Skype which was successful.

I'm using 'Immerse Active' wireless earphones for Kitsound (KS). Here is a link to them on Amazon (UK):

As you can see they were really cheap!

They worked best in HSP/HFP mode. In the other mode the volume was very low, so I didn't test the mic in this mode.

Hope this helps.

Regards,
Tony.

Karl, I bluetooth set and had trouble. It worked fine on my son's W10 on his
games but I wanted to use with Skype. I just stayed wired.
