I bought a generic usb headset (Generic USB PnP Sound Device), it has been detected by the system, I am using Plasma KDE by the way, but it worked for me once and for about a second and then nothing. The sound was too loud, when I decrease it, the sound disappeared forever...

The headset works, i tested it on the other system ;-)

This is what dmesg reports on the device when plugged : [ 266.130515] usb 1-1: new full-speed USB device number 4 using xhci_hcd [ 266.261251] usb 1-1: New USB device found, idVendor=1908, idProduct=2070, bcdDevice= 1.00 [ 266.261257] usb 1-1: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3 [ 266.261262] usb 1-1: Product: USB PnP Sound Device [ 266.261265] usb 1-1: Manufacturer: Generic [ 266.261269] usb 1-1: SerialNumber: 〲㌱㈱ [ 266.266899] input: Generic USB PnP Sound Device as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:14.0/usb1/1-1/1-1:1.3/0003:1908:2070.0004/input/input19 [ 266.319125] hid-generic 0003:1908:2070.0004: input,hidraw3: USB HID v2.01 Device [Generic USB PnP Sound Device] on usb-0000:00:14.0-1/input3 [ 266.501539] usb 1-1: 1:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x2 [ 266.502698] usb 1-1: 2:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x82 [ 266.512415] usbcore: registered new interface driver snd-usb-audio [ 266.537982] usb 1-1: 2:1: cannot get freq at ep 0x82 [ 266.600304] retire_capture_urb: 4 callbacks suppressed

My system board is : !!DMI Information !!---------------

Manufacturer: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. Product Name: H170M-D3H Product Version: Default string Firmware Version: F23d Board Vendor: Gigabyte Technology Co., Ltd. Board Name: H170M-D3H-CF`

The device seems to be recognized, but I get nothing from it, any idea?

  • You decreased the sound from the buttons of the headset or in the system volume control? I ask this because I use a Logitech headset that crash the sound of the system when I use the buttons of the headset. – JonLord Dec 31 '18 at 21:59
  • I did it from the system volume control, and that's it no more sound. I tested other usb ports, nothing. The other thing that is weird, the headset is equipped with a blue led that blinks when it's playing sound, when I start something like a video or a movie, the led starts blinking but there is no sound... – Wodel Dec 31 '18 at 23:17
