Hello, I have a USB Headset (Razer Kraken), and it often will suddenly disconnect and sometimes reconnect all by itself. The issue only happens when there is something being outputted to the device. I really have no clue what I'm doing so if I could get some help that would be great because sometimes the headset is just completely unuseable. Here is the output from running dmesg when the headset disconnects (nothing of relevance came before). Thank you for your help and I hope this is under the right topic.

Is the device plugged directly into a motherboard USB (not a usb hub)?
Also, could you provide the output of lsusb ?

It looks like this is one of many Razor devices that require a special driver to work properly on Linux. Here is the GitHub page for the Linux drivers: GitHub - openrazer/openrazer: Open source driver and user-space daemon to control Razer lighting and other features on GNU/Linux

Here is some info about getting it installed: OpenRazer | Open Source Drivers for GNU/Linux

It looks like it's in the Chaotic AUR, so:

garuda-update
sudo pacman -S openrazer-meta

It appears you need to add your user to the plugdev group:

sudo gpasswd -a $USER plugdev

Reboot, and see how it goes. :crossed_fingers:

I initially thought so too, but on their page they say "OpenRazer only supports lighting features and doesn't provide additional audio features" in the headphone section of https://openrazer.github.io/

Unless I am getting the meaning wrong (like advanced audio stuff is missing)

The issue occurs while being plugged into the motherboard USB and USB hub. Also, I already have openrazer installed and as you stated, it is only for functionality with lighting software. Here is the output of lsusb

Maybe you want to look around these issues:

That is support for openrazer which as already stated, provides support for lighting and rgb functionality only. It does not affect audio. Thank you though.

I'm not sure what you mean when you refer to audio features, can you explain a bit?

The openrazer github link you listed is for a driver that only affects rgb and lighting. The openrazer driver does not impact or affect audio in any way as far as im aware so that could not be the source of my issue.

Possibly try chaotic-aur/openrgb-git

Maybe it would be useful to open an issue here. I'm not sure that it directly affects audio, but honestly, all the Razer products I've ever used with Linux has been awkward / buggy, you may be in for a bit of a ride figuring out what's going on, especially since that's relatively rare and unique hardware which probably has some quirks.

I also already have OpenRGB and as far as a I know, it also does not affect audio in any way. Seems like a weird issue. Looks like I'll have to try and dig more and do some tinkering. Thank you
