Would you be kind enough to supply (preferably as an attachment) the
output of running "pacmd list" while this device is plugged in?

I want to make sure that it's correctly identified as a "headset" so
that all the automatic cleverness works properly. I may need to ask for
some other info after this too, depending on the contents :)

(FYI, it should show up as an "intended-role" property on the sink
proplist - that may not make sense, especially if it's not being
recognised as such currently, but figured I'd tell you why I'm asking!)

Great. Thanks.
