I am using a Elgato Wave 3 mic that has a headphone output. The output audio works fine, however whenever I start an application that needs to use the microphone it detects no input (google meet call or obs) until I switch profiles on the device.

        input:mono-fallback: Mono Input (priority 1, available: unknown)
        input:multichannel-input: Multichannel Input (priority 1, available: unknown)
        output:analog-stereo: Analog Stereo Output (priority 6500, available: unknown)
        output:analog-stereo+input:mono-fallback: Analog Stereo Output + Mono Input (priority 6501, available: unknown)
        output:analog-stereo+input:multichannel-input: Analog Stereo Output + Multichannel Input (priority 6501, available: unknown)
        output:iec958-stereo: Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output (priority 5500, available: unknown)
        output:iec958-stereo+input:mono-fallback: Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Mono Input (priority 5501, available: unknown)
        output:iec958-stereo+input:multichannel-input: Digital Stereo (IEC958) Output + Multichannel Input (priority 5501, available: unknown)
        off: Off (priority 0, available: unknown)

I can get it to work by toggling between any of the profiles with both an input and output and it will start working (my mic starts picking up sound). I'm not sure how to troubleshoot no audio from a mic.
