Thanks for the hekp, both BT are built in. This is the "pulseaudio -k;
pulseaudio -vvv" output when I pair the headset:

This line is in red: "E: module-bluetooth-device.c: Failed to write data to
SCO socket: Argumento inválido"

Argumento inválido = Invalid argument (in spanish)

There are a lot of lines and I don't understand nothing. How can I capture
all the output on a file? I try to "> file" but nothing.

Thanks for all.
