Even recognizing the rainbow sticker on the laptop and rainbow button on the one woman's lapel, I think you're really reaching here.

I also tried that, but failed.
HSP should work. I've tested a basic Bluetooth headset. That seemed to work well enough.

Re: Bluetooth HFP

Based on my experience and what I've read from other people testing, HFP does not work with the onboard Bluetooth interface on the Pi3B. You will likely need a separate USB Bluetooth adapter.

Re: Pulse audio and surround

I posted some of this in your forum. PulseAudio 5.0 in Raspbian Jessie doesn't automatically detect the card, module-udev-detect fails. It seems that this is due to the more limited default ALSA profile-sets in PulseAudio 5.0. Apparently the Octo doesn't match any of the profiles. It seems it can be...

You can't use the Debian package they offer, but you could probably install it from source. Electron worked in general the last time I tried it on a Pi3B.
