Hi

did you intend to post in Linux? Your third screenshot suggests you are on a FreeBSD
maybe ask a mod to move it to here?
https://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/%2Absd-17/

BTW can I suggest next time you screenshot that you either minimise the app (web browser?) or change your transparency please.
And suggest you upload them to a host site and link to them....I prefer ingur.com
as I am too lazy to try and maximise my web browser to try and read your simple alsa controls

I would start by following the suggestions listed in the FreeBSD Handbook. You can start by trying to manually load your sound driver.

Yeah ... How to unmute for the headsets using AlsaMixer but at the same settings mute from the PC speakers?

this sub-forum or any BSD forum you can find. forgive me for not looking.

now is it possible you can improve your screenshots? We already know you are on FreeBSD.

open a terminal and try

Code:
alsamixer -c0 -Vall
if that shows your card....your current images I find difficult to read....well I may be difficult

then upload to ingur.com and link to it.

what we are interested in.....does your device have a setting to enable or disable "auto mute"

auto mute means.....for analog devices only....speaker has sound....when 3.5mm headphones inserted and detected by system....speakers are muted and sound goes only to headphones.

part 2....but some devices are quirky and need a model=string set....more on that later
and....some devices do not ENFORCE jack detection even with a model=string correctly set....so in those rarer instances....
disable of "auto mute" becomes a suitable option to test.

Here is link to what an auto mute enabled looks like
https://i.imgur.com/XNNsA.png

in alsamixer....you would use arrow keys to arrow right to it.....press either the up arrow a number of times or down to change the setting

part 3
you would then....if on reboot....notice the setting has not saved.....redo it but issue a save commmand after adjusting mixer levels
BUT note that mixer levels won't save too well if headphone is inserted and on reboot....NOT inserted.
I am sure you knew that....but better to say it early and let you find out later

Code:
sudo alsactl store
you can if you want to do specific mixer level testing....save to a specific file...but that needs a command to restore from a specific file

manual page may be your friend if you want to go down that path

Code:
man alsactl
EDIT

it does not hurt to show the full output of
Code:
aplay -l
