I can’t pair my SailfishX device with my Kygo A9/600 headphones. When I tap its entry in list of nearby devices I get a notification Problem with pairing authentication. The passcodes did not match. I successfully paired it with my iPad.

The headphone supports NFC pairing, and since XperiaX hardware supports this as well I wonder if it tries OOB pairing that way, but without support in the stack it will fail.

As a work around, you can successfully pair using the command line, either with hcitool or bluetoothctl.

See this answer. (for a somewhat similar problematic pairing).
