Bluetooth pairs but sound plays through laptop

I can even see it in the output

but the sound i.e for spotify / youtube plays from monitor speakers / laptop

Before going any further, when you select your headset as the output and click test right beside, does the test come through on your laptop speakers or your headset?

I'm wondering if the apps you're using are possibly selecting the wrong output independent of what you've selected there. I've had that happen on a couple of occasions.

I have pulse audio control installed to mostly address these issues (if this is the same issue).

It does , but ill try with pulse audio aswell. Thanks !

You should be able to see your playback streams with that and see where it's streaming to (speakers, headphones, etc). I usually have to manually select my default in Output to actually have it fully selected, otherwise gnome has some fun and decides to make something else default even though you'll have something else selected.

Hope that helps.
