Have you tried checking what pulseaudio is doing? I have had ongoing sound issues and use simultaneous output with amplifier and headphones and pulse is the goto place for enabling simultaneous output.

My wife has very sensitive hearing and hates modern films/tv shows with all their sudden crescendos, so wants the sound down very low. I like to hear the dialogue so I know what is happening in the show and don't care about the sudden loud bits in my headphones. The wife is happy for me to explain what's going on in the show's plot as she can't hear the dialogue, don't ask----I've had 49 years of this........

What is the source of your audio? HDMI audio for instance can be tricky and needs unique settings, I know, that's what I am using through my Sony amplifier.
see the pulseaudio screenshots. The image pulse2 is a truncated one because the open dialogue boxes which show all the HDMI connections disappear when focus is removed so a screenshot is not possible.
EDIT- I took a shot with my mobile and it shows the HDMI connections (all disconnected apart from one).

I can enable the system sounds from the settings manger for individual notifications. I just turn them off-they are almost as annoying as the constant beeps from my car if I leave a door open-sometimes I just want to rip out the dashboard and stamp on the bloody peizo mini speaker.......don't mention the seatbelt beeper.......

Could you point the link to this bug? Excuse if you did already, but I could not find.

Well, coming back to KDE, Qt, Frameworks...

I have noted that Notifications Sound had gone away in Fedora and KDE Neon.

(It didn't happen with Mageia, Debian, openSUSE, PCLinuxOS, Mint, Slackware, Arch, Sabayon or Devuan).

And I could get it again in Fedora and KDE Neon ─ just dealing with ON / OFF button in:

System settings > Multimedia > Audio volume > Applications > Notifications sounds

In KDE Neon, I can slide volume from 0 to 100%, and it keeps new level, and it really affects Notifications sound level.

In Fedora 30 KDE, volume always go back to zero ─ but after this, it goes MUTE.

So, I just tested Mute (ON / OFF) and it worked ─ even with slide control at zero.

I am using just Panel Volume controls, now.

I just found that after clicking on the mute button of the Notification Sounds bar, although the sound level is 0%, notification sound is back again! This is very strange, but it worked!!
