How do I get a High-quality headset codec for BT headphones?

I've been fiddling with the audio for my bluetooth earphones in System Settings and I've noticed that the quality of incoming audio is horrible when I switch to headset mode (HSP/HFP, mSBC is better than CVSD but still horrible). Is there something I can install that will preserve the audio quality of High Fidelity Playback while also using the microphone?

This issue was described in this post as well, but it was locked before a resolution was presented: Bluetooth headphone mic error
