"pactl set-default-sink X" will set the default sink to X. Replace X
with the sink name. If you're not sure what the headset sink name is,
this command will print all sink names: "pactl list sinks | grep Name:"

Starting from PulseAudio 11.0, bluetooth devices should automatically
become the default sink if you haven't manually configured anything

You can also try loading module-switch-on-connect. That module will
automatically set any new sink that appears as the default sink.
