Connect wireless headset (USB)

**How to configure a wireless headset with Pulseaudio **

I used a Speedlink Metis, that worked out of the box.

  1. Software

  1. Connect headset-USB-device, verify

~> aplay -l

card 2: headset [2.4G Wireless headset], device 0: USB Audio [USB Audio]
Subdevices: 0/1
Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

The output depends on your hardware.

  1. Have fun listening wireless music

My .asoundrc (Home-Dir):

PulseAudio plugin configuration

Let’s create a virtual device “pulse” for mixer and PCM

pcm.pulse {
type pulse
}

ctl.pulse {
type pulse
}

Let’s make it the default!

pcm.!default {
type plug
slave.pcm {
type pulse
}
}

ctl.!default {
type pulse
}
