[SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

tl;dr the problem was a physical mute switch

The specific headset mentioned connects via USB, and has an internal virtual 7.1 surround sound hardware driver, and a mono mic as well, which is supposed to "just work" without the need for any installation on the PC (or other connected device). In other words, when the thing is plugged in and the 7.1 toggled on, the device it is plugged into should "see" a 7.1 surround sound audio output device with a mono input.

However, the Plasma sound settings screen does not correctly detect these, and instead I have the following choices:
[spoiler]
Analog Stereo Input
Digital Stereo (IEC958) Input
Analog Stereo Output
Analog Stereo Duplex
Analog Stereo Output + Digital Stereo (IEC958) Input
Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output
Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Analog Stereo Input
Digital Stereo (IEC958) Duplex
Digital Surround 5.1 (IEC958/AC3) Output
Digital Surround 5.1 (IEC958/AC3) Output + Analog Stereo Input
Digital Surround 5.1 (IEC958/AC3) Output + Digital Stereo (IEC958) Input
[/spoiler]

All three Digital Surround options immediately cause the headphones to produce static for about 5 seconds, even if there is no sound being output, and afterwards no sound of any kind until the setting is changed to something else.
The stereo output options all work as expected, but obviously only in stereo, I do not get the 7.1 virtual surround.
The microphone does not work regardless of the option chosen.

Using arecord, I was able to determine that the microphone is detected, but the PCM device that works can not be set as the one to use by default in the audio settings.

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

This will likely need a custom alsa-card/pulse-profile. Are you on pulseaudio or pipewire/alsa-card-profiles

FWIW can you post

aplay -lL
amixer -c4

pactl list sinks

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

I have no idea whether I am on pulseaudio or pipewire/alsa-card-profiles, it's whatever is the default with an Arch installation.
That said, based on the results below, it looks like pulseaudio.

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

There are no defaults on Arch, you're somewhat expected to know what you want out of your system and have somewhat of an understanding of what's there. That said these outputs look plain pulseaudio, so that's what's going to be in use here.

That said, alsamixer only sees a stereo card and thus everything else will always also only see a stereo card, so from a "detection" perspective, everything is as should be. We do have a 71 PCM however, can you play to that:

speaker-test -Dsurround71:CARD=Sound,DEV=0 -c8

try that without anything else playing, do you get noise out of all 8 channels?  Maybe also throw in

sudo dmesg | grep usb

is it plugged into a port with enough power? But generally speaking since it's talking about "virtual" surround I'm less than certain this is something that gets exposed to the OS and rather marketing speech for them doing some heuristics internally, which would match with the fact alsamixer only sees a stereo channel.

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

I used the liveCD `archlinux-gui-plasma-2022.07-x86_64.iso` from ALG (sourceforge) to install Arch, so whatever defaults it chose for me are what I'm using. I have pulseaudio and pipwire installed, `which` says there is no `alsa` or `alsa-card-profiles`.

[eyeonus@panther ~]$ speaker-test -Dsurround71:CARD=Sound,DEV=0 -c8

There were a lot of usb messages unrelated, so I moved it to another port and back again, the following is the portion of the dmesg produced by my doing that

I would assume that it has enough power, since I can hear audio through it, and it is plugged into a USB3.1 port, but I don't know how to find out for certain.

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

Somewhat what I was expecting. As mentioned if something talks about "virtual surround" you're normally not going to be able to actively use that and it fakes it in software. How sure are you that "the host OS is supposed to see a 71 channel" is a correct assertion? Does Windows give you actual 71 manipulable channels? I highly doubt that.  Even the webpage has the feature marked as

Hyperx page wrote:

Virtual 7.1 Surround Sound[1]

they don't have the actual footnote for the [1] anywhere but the end result looks the same, as in that they don't actually implement surround and it's just a SW/firmware hack.

The mic input looks correctly detected to me, what's actually that other device you mention as being related and not shown?

arecord -l

Yes, the headset itself has a TRRS jack which plugs into a port on the USB dongle, the USB dongle has a chip inside that does the virtual surround, so it is a firmware hack.

I had to borrow a friend's computer to see what happens on Windows, and you are correct that it shows as two channels on there.

The other devices I didn't show are two USB mice, a USB keyboard, a TI-Nspire CAS, a Steam Controller, a Dolphin bar for connecting Wiimotes, a 2TB portable hard drive, a USB3.0 4-port hub, and my phone.
As I said, unrelated.
I do have a webcam which also has a mic, I have that one turned off in settings, so it may show as SUSPENDED in the above console outputs.

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

The mic is definitely not detected correctly, as it shows as stereo input, whereas the actual physical mic is mono. Considering "duplex" is an option in settings, I believe it is incorrectly detecting the headphone speakers as being both speakers and microphones. Also, regardless of which source is chosen, no sound is detected when running `arecord -D [devicename] -vvv ' for any HyperX device listed in the results of `arecord -L`

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

That mics advertise themselves as stereo despite being mono is sadly also quite common. you can usually "fix" that by muting one of the channels. Try that, if you get input from a relevant attempt you can configure a remap source e.g.

pactl load-module module-remap-source master=alsa_input.usb-Kingston_HyperX_Virtual_Surround_Sound_00000000-00.analog-stereo master_channel_map=front-left channel_map=mono #or front-right for the master channel depending on which works

which will give you a new source that should be pickable by default (might have to tick the "show virtual devices" in plasma-pa's right click menu) if that worked you can add

.nofail
load-module module-remap-source master=alsa_input.usb-Kingston_HyperX_Virtual_Surround_Sound_00000000-00.analog-stereo master_channel_map=front-left channel_map=mono

to the end of your /etc/pulse/default.pa

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

No, still no working microphone.

What's really odd about this is the `CARD=U0x46d0x81b` doesn't show up since the reboot, and even though I couldn't choose it in sound settings, one of those options did work.

[eyeonus@panther ~]$ pactl load-module module-remap-source master=alsa_input.usb-Kingston_HyperX_Virtual_Surround_Sound_00000000-00.analog-stereo master_channel_map=front-left channel_map=mono
Failure: Module initialization failed
[eyeonus@panther ~]$ pactl load-module module-remap-source master=alsa_input.usb-Kingston_HyperX_Virtual_Surround_Sound_00000000-00.analog-stereo master_channel_map=front-right channel_map=mono
Failure: Module initialization failed

At this point I'm not even concerned about the surround sound part, I just want a working mic.

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

The U0x46d0x81b is your webcam from what I'm seeing. Was/is that plugged in? I wonder why the remap source failed that should be a correct invocation. You could also try and see whether pipewire detects this more correctly by installing wireplumber and pipewire-pulse and pipewire-alsa (replacing pulseaudio) and then rebooting. Did

arecord -vvv -D sysdefault:CARD=Sound -f dat /dev/null

not give you audio/a recording? You probably want to create and play back a test file instead of dumping into /dev/null to check whether you can play this back.

FWIW see: https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=266461 which is basically what you're dealing with. In that case the USB adapter has a secondary jack,  do you have that and tried switching? How sure are you that your TSRR jack contains both mic and audio and it doesn't need a secondary plug for mic support?

Re: [SOLVED] HyperX Cloud II not showing correctly in audio settings

I. Am. An. Idiot.

There's a mute switch on the dongle. I flipped it and now both the default and the sysdefault are showing activity.

I have verified that indeed, I am stupid, by running arecord and tapping the physical mic. I also ran it without the `-D` option and saw activity when I tapped the mic then as well.

Just to be absolutely certain I ran Audacity, saw a waveform when recording, and heard tapping when I played it back.

I am incredibly sorry to have wasted your time, but everything is working correctly, and probably has been all along.
