Description of Problem:
Headphones are forced into handsfree mode (HSP/HFP) when using an external microphone. Unable to use headphones in headset mode (A2DP+LDAC) alongside the external mic.
Steps to Reproduce:
- Connect external mic.
- Set external mic as default input
- Connect headphones and make sure they're in headset mode (A2DP+LDAC)
- Join a "Google Meet", "MS Teams" or start using mic on https://mictests.com/.
The headphones instantly switch to handsfree mode (HSP/HFP). Any attempt to revert to headset mode (A2DP+LDAC) results in non-working external mic.
Headphones must be able to stay in headset mode (A2DP+LDAC) when using an external mic.
