Hi Guys!
First of all, I would like to apologize for my poor English and I am also a Noob to Linux.

When I plug in my headset, my notebook only recognizes it as headphones. In the settings I can't even select it because it is apparently only recognized as headphones. The headset is a wired headset from Sony. No USB.
I hope someone can help me fix this.
What information do you need to help me?

Thanks

Hello, can you provide the following:

1. The model of the headset
2. The Linux Distro you're using
3. Are you plugging your headset into the 3.5mm headphones and mic jack?

Hi TheProf

1. It is a Sony Headset (Dont know the exact Model Number :/ )
2. I am using Linux Mint 20.1 Cinnamon 4.8.6
3. I only have one slot ( With Windows i can use the Headset). when I plug in the headset, a window appears where I can choose between "Headset - Headphone - just Micro"

Open ( /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base.conf ) with your favorite editor with sudo privilege
Add options ( snd-hda-intel model=dell-headset-multi ) at the bottom
Save
Reboot
Insert your headset (headphone with microphone) to the audio slot, then audio mode selection popup will show, select Headset mode (an icon with headphone and microphone)
If that does not work you can always undo it.
