After doing this command, I started hearing a static voice in both sides of the headset at the same time while testing both(Front Left and Front Right). I tested another device (earphones) and it worked fine where each side was making the noise alone depending on the test.

that does not gel with your earlier remarks that headset works fine with windows or android.

but maybe there is something wrong with the adapter so when you tested it was good and it has moved a bit and lost correct connection?

Sounds like the jack isn't fully in or not of high quality. The -c 2 is 2 channels aka left and right, it should NOT output to both at the same time. And yes, it's a pink noise aka static. You can change the noise though.

$ speaker-test -t sine -f 440 -c 2 -l 1 -D hw:0

Tuning A by old standards. More like 442 by modern standards since fixed pitch percussion instruments don't tune very well.

You are totally right about the jack not being fully inserted. I took it for granted. I apologize for wasting your time on something this silly.
