#StackBounty: #audio #bluetooth Bluetooth headphones work for audio, but built-in headphone mic doesn't

Bounty: 100

I’m using Pop_OS! 20.04. I have a pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones (wh-1000xm3). I’m using a USB dongle for a Bluetooth receiver.

The audio works in the headphones, the on-headphone controls work, but the built-in mic doesn’t. The mic and audio work with my Android phone, Windows, and Mac.

I went into settings and everything looks right, but the OS isn’t detecting it. In Slack and Google Hangouts, there’s a message saying that it can’t be found as well as this online test https://www.onlinemictest.com/.

Are there any tools I can use to debug this? How can I figure out if it’s the Bluetooth receiver, or something in my OS or the headphones?

I’ve tried blueman, but I didn’t see anything out-of-the-ordinary.

I’ve tried this https://askubuntu.com/a/1233446/566235 but I don’t know which one to add to my alsa-base.conf. My codec is Realtek ALC888

Screenshot of my audio settings, I can’t unmute the input for my headphones.

#StackBounty: #audio #bluetooth Bluetooth headphones work for audio, but built-in headphone mic doesn't

Bounty: 100

I’m using Pop_OS! 20.04. I have a pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones (wh-1000xm3). I’m using a USB dongle for a Bluetooth receiver.

The audio works in the headphones, the on-headphone controls work, but the built-in mic doesn’t. The mic and audio work with my Android phone, Windows, and Mac.

Are there any tools I can use to debug this? How can I figure out if it’s the Bluetooth receiver, or something in my OS or the headphones?

I’ve tried blueman, but I didn’t see anything out-of-the-ordinary.

I’ve tried this https://askubuntu.com/a/1233446/566235 but I don’t know which one to add to my alsa-base.conf. My codec is Realtek ALC888

#StackBounty: #audio #bluetooth Bluetooth headphones work for audio, but built-in headphone mic doesn't

Bounty: 100

I’m using Pop_OS! 20.04. I have a pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones (wh-1000xm3). I’m using a USB dongle for a Bluetooth receiver.

The audio works in the headphones, the on-headphone controls work, but the built-in mic doesn’t. The mic and audio work with my Android phone, Windows, and Mac.

I went into settings and everything looks right, but the OS isn’t detecting it. In Slack and Google Hangouts, there’s a message saying that it can’t be found as well as this online test https://www.onlinemictest.com/.

Are there any tools I can use to debug this? How can I figure out if it’s the Bluetooth receiver, or something in my OS or the headphones?

I’ve tried blueman, but I didn’t see anything out-of-the-ordinary.

I’ve tried this https://askubuntu.com/a/1233446/566235 but I don’t know which one to add to my alsa-base.conf. My codec is Realtek ALC888

Screenshot of my audio settings, I can’t unmute the input for my headphones.

#StackBounty: #audio #bluetooth Bluetooth headphones work for audio, but built-in headphone mic doesn't

Bounty: 100

I’m using Pop_OS! 20.04. I have a pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones (wh-1000xm3). I’m using a USB dongle for a Bluetooth receiver.

The audio works in the headphones, the on-headphone controls work, but the built-in mic doesn’t. The mic and audio work with my Android phone, Windows, and Mac.

I went into settings and everything looks right, but the OS isn’t detecting it. In Slack and Google Hangouts, there’s a message saying that it can’t be found as well as this online test https://www.onlinemictest.com/.

Are there any tools I can use to debug this? How can I figure out if it’s the Bluetooth receiver, or something in my OS or the headphones?

I’ve tried blueman, but I didn’t see anything out-of-the-ordinary.

I’ve tried this https://askubuntu.com/a/1233446/566235 but I don’t know which one to add to my alsa-base.conf. My codec is Realtek ALC888

Screenshot of my audio settings, I can’t unmute the input for my headphones.

#StackBounty: #audio #bluetooth Bluetooth headphones work for audio, but built-in headphone mic doesn't

Bounty: 100

I’m using Pop_OS! 20.04. I have a pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones (wh-1000xm3). I’m using a USB dongle for a Bluetooth receiver.

The audio works in the headphones, the on-headphone controls work, but the built-in mic doesn’t. The mic and audio work with my Android phone, Windows, and Mac.

I went into settings and everything looks right, but the OS isn’t detecting it. In Slack and Google Hangouts, there’s a message saying that it can’t be found as well as this online test https://www.onlinemictest.com/.

Are there any tools I can use to debug this? How can I figure out if it’s the Bluetooth receiver, or something in my OS or the headphones?

I’ve tried blueman, but I didn’t see anything out-of-the-ordinary.

I’ve tried this https://askubuntu.com/a/1233446/566235 but I don’t know which one to add to my alsa-base.conf. My codec is Realtek ALC888

Screenshot of my audio settings, I can’t unmute the input for my headphones.

#StackBounty: #audio #bluetooth Bluetooth headphones work for audio, but built-in headphone mic doesn't

Bounty: 100

I’m using Pop_OS! 20.04. I have a pair of Sony Bluetooth headphones (wh-1000xm3). I’m using a USB dongle for a Bluetooth receiver.

The audio works in the headphones, the on-headphone controls work, but the built-in mic doesn’t. The mic and audio work with my Android phone, Windows, and Mac.

I went into settings and everything looks right, but the OS isn’t detecting it. In Slack and Google Hangouts, there’s a message saying that it can’t be found as well as this online test https://www.onlinemictest.com/.

Are there any tools I can use to debug this? How can I figure out if it’s the Bluetooth receiver, or something in my OS or the headphones?

I’ve tried blueman, but I didn’t see anything out-of-the-ordinary.

I’ve tried this https://askubuntu.com/a/1233446/566235 but I don’t know which one to add to my alsa-base.conf. My codec is Realtek ALC888

Screenshot of my audio settings, I can’t unmute the input for my headphones.
screenshot of my audio setting.

The input for pavucontrol. The last one are my headphones.

Bluetooth seems normal.
