Sound is playing both from speakers and headphones, no options in AlsaMixer on ubuntu 22.04.1

Ive connected second monitor and some cheap Phanasonic headphones to my ThinkPadE495. When I play any sound on my device either test sound in sound settings or Youtube video sound is coming both from headphones and laptop speakers. I`ve searched on StackExchange for a bit, everyone recommends to manually mute speakers via AlsaMixer, but I dont have such options. AlsaMixer with only "PCM" device available

Have you tried `pavucontrol` ; ie. pulse audio volume control... it's where I'd head well before trying the *old* ALSA tools

Welcome to the Ask Ubuntu community. Just to confirm the obvious: have you double-checked and made sure that the headphones are securely plugged into the audio port? I have sometimes plugged in a headset, and though it output audio, it wasn't enough to switch audio devices in the OS.

Yeah, I`ve checked it. I have Ubuntu and Windows installed in double boot and those exact headphones work with windows just fine.

Thanks to @guiverc


worked for me.

sudo apt install pavucontrol
sudo pavucontrol

and then drag volume of the second output to 0%

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
