grep bluetooth /var/log/syslog

if it shows something like this on connect:

bluetoothd[197]: a2dp-source profile connect failed for MAC:OF:BT:DEVICE: Protocol not available

you need to install pulseaudio-module-bluetooth and restart bluetoothd

apt install --no-install-recommends pulseaudio-module-bluetooth
systemctl restart bluetooth
