Astro A20 wireless 5ghz headphones on Linux no audio, but after applying audio fix no microphone

New to the forums, I've been having problems getting my wireless headphones (Astro A20, Xbox edition) to be fully functional on Linux (Any distribution, but I am currently on Kubuntu 20.04). I have been able to get the sound working on them with an edit to a file referred to me by a user on Reddit. There is more relevant information in the post, follow the thread of me (Wolf47812) and my helper (asdlkjr). They recommended me to add some lines to ~./asoundrc, specifically these lines of code. defaults.pcm.!card "A20" defaults.pcm.device 1 defaults.ctl.!card "A20"

Writing these and saving the file gives me sound after a reboot. They further tried to help me adding other lines such as defaults.pcm.dsnoop.!card "A20" defaults.pcm.dsnoop.device 0

But adding these with the above lines changed my device name to "Dummy Output" on reboot and disabled my sound. My headphone microphone works before any changes to the file from a fresh install, while the first set of lines enables the sound, but disables my microphone.

If I do the following in my terminal though with the applied lines that give me sound on reboot [email protected]:~$ arecord -f S16_LE -d 10 -r 16000 --device="hw:1,0" /tmp/test-mic.wav Recording WAVE '/tmp/test-mic.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 16000 Hz, Mono Warning: rate is not accurate (requested = 16000Hz, got = 48000Hz) please, try the plug plugin [email protected]:~$ aplay /tmp/test-mic.wav Playing WAVE '/tmp/test-mic.wav' : Signed 16 bit Little Endian, Rate 48000 Hz, Mono

Even though I chose the wrong hz, I could still hear my voice over the file that it created. This is all the information I have on this, and I am at a loss on how to proceed. I hope that I properly formatted this post, I'm new to forum posts and couldn't find anything specific about the formatting of my post anywhere. Thank you for your time!
