Thank you for the feedback. Could you hear the sound from your headset

This is working as expected except the problem with the ~/.pulse
misconfiguration. If you start aplay without the -D switch the sound is
directed to the default alsa device which is in this case the
pulseaudio as set in the ~/.asoundrc.

This error says that alsa cannot found 2 channels to play stereo on the
btheadset device. I am not sure what is the reason. This could be a
question to the alsa guys. There should be native bluetooth support for
the bluetooth devices in the pulseaudio 0.9.13 in the near future.
