    where the bold 1 needs to be replaced with card number the first command is showing for your headphone.

  • @joekamprad Ok got a new device in pulse audio now, so is there anyway to get the better mic, and the virtual surround sound in the headset working?

  • Can you choose the headphone with alsamixer, by pressing [F6] after the command

    alsamixer
    

    Inside terminal?
