So I recently bought a pair of steelseries Arctis 1 Wireless headphones and when i connect them to my laptop, the mic works but the speakers stay silent. I connected it to my nintendo switch and the audio works fine. The headphones aren't detected as speakers by the system at all, I tried pulseaudio but that didn't work either. When typing lsusb into the terminal it detects it as a Steelseries device, but i don't know how to make the audio work. I can use the cable but that ruins the wireless experience.. I am using Pop OS 20.10

G'day @Shadow_Wallaby52 and welcome to linux.org :)

Do be sure to look around the site before posting or else you will just trail off into obscurity without an answer.

I'm moving this to Linux Audio/Video

Good luck

Also you have to hold the power button for 3 seconds to get them to turn on
