Bluetooth Audio only in mono

F11 I have to say is fantastic - Everything working out of the box. Just this minor feature request would make it awesome.
Description of problem:
When I connect my A2DP bluetooth I can only get mono sound.
Not really a bug but a feature request.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Pair bluetooth headset
2. Device is connected in mono
Connected as HCP
Should give you the option to connect as H2DP or HCP not just assume HCP.
As I said not really a bug.
I have a H2DP headset, that sounds great in stereo mode but mediocre in mono.
Problem: Gnome bluetooth only connects headsets as HCP.
My idea is that when you first pair the device you create 2 device entries. One that is HCP (Standard Headset with microphone) the other as H2DP (only a stereo connection no microphone.
Ideally the user should be able to select the preferred connection but just having the option in the device list would be fantastic.
It's A2DP and HSP.
You should be able to switch the profile using PulseAudio, in pavucontrol.
Sorry my mistake about HSP I hate abbreviations they always get me confused.
Will check out pavucontrol. But I need to recover my headset from my daughter. But I do see now the configuration tab that was not there before. So it looks like it will do the trick.
Confirmed that pavucontrol can change the profile.
May be that package should no be included by default.
So you can change to not a bug. Sorry for the unnecessary report. And thanks for your advice. :)
The feature will be merged into the volume control in the future.
