I have a Plantronics Pulse 590 [0] and a cheap noname bluetooth dongle
that I use with pulseaudio. It was a little tricky to get to work, but
once you know how it's simple.

First I added this to ~/.asoundrc
pcm.headset {
        type bluetooth
        device "XX:XX:XX:XX:XX:XX" # Changed to protect my ears
        profile "hifi"

Then everytime I login I have to:
 - activate the audio service in bluetooth-properties
 - run: pactl load-module module-alsa-sink device=headset
 - use pavucontrol to make the headset sink the default
