PulseAudio and Bluetooth headset: auto-select AD2P profile?

I have a Bluetooth headset, which has two sound profiles available: HSP (which I don't want) and AD2P (which I do want). When I turn on the headset, PulseAudio seems to randomly pick one of these two profiles, resulting in a 50% chance of getting terrible quality until I manually open pavucontrol and switch to the correct profile. Is it possible to tell PulseAudio to ignore the HSP profile and always pick the AD2P profile? If it isn't, could I write an udev rule that automatically runs pacmd to switch to the correct profile once the headset connects?

Re: PulseAudio and Bluetooth headset: auto-select AD2P profile?

I managed to figure it out. For future reference: create a file /etc/udev/rules.d/headset.rules containing just the following line:

ACTION=="add", SUBSYSTEM=="bluetooth", RUN+="sudo -u user pactl --server unix:/run/user/1000/pulse/native set-card-profile bluez_card.xx_xx_xx_xx_xx_xx a2dp_sink"

where user is your username and the xx give your headset's device identifier.
