    Headset microphone not detecting voice.


    Running Linux Mint 18.0 (Sarah) on a HP Star Wars Special Edition w/ an Intel i5-6200U CPU and 16GB of RAM. It has an HDA Intel PCH Microphone running a ALSA k4.4.0_21_generic driver.

    I’m using a set of SADES SA-708 headset w/integrated mic.

    The issue I’m having is I use Kazam (Desktop Recording) software. It seems to be recording except when I play the video back there’s no sound. I use Totem (Video Playback) and notice the sound defaults to mute. I’ve attached some screenshots of my sound settings to illustrate the issue.

    Do I need a new set of headphones……. J/k

    Any help as always greatly appreciated.

    Thanks nihili, Playing around with pavcontrol, but no luck so far. I believe that the headphones IS the soundcard and ordering a set of Corsair Void w/USB connector. I don't trust the 3.5 jack.

    Thanks again.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    I use both 3.5 jack headphones as well as usb phones. Both work fine for me. Most of the time, the 3.5 is plugged into my Bose desk speakers. Excellent audio!
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
