I have ASUS ROG Spitfire 7.1 usb headset and fixed this issue with next workaround:

  1. open pulseaudio preferences and enable "Add virtual output device for simultaneous output on all local sound cards" checkbox.
  2. set this virtual device as default
  3. reboot system
  4. set volume on speaker and mic on "default" soundcard via alsamixer > F6 (select sound card) > - (default) > F5 (view: playback + capture)

In result I have next working variant:
