Description of problem
Using the headset Logitech H800 doesnt work anymore since Linux 3.5.x on Fedora 17. The problem occures on 2 different machines running Linux 3.5.x and with KDE and Gnome (for configuration).

It did work with Linux <3.5.x on Fedora 17. It also works perfectly when connecting via bluetooth to a smartphone running Linux 3.2.x.

How reproducible:
Connecting the headset via cable or wireless and switching it on. The headset doesnt work, nether automatic via plug&play nor by trying a manual configuration.

Actual results:
When trying to use the headset, dmesg reports:
[410640.927670] usb 1-2.1: USB disconnect, device number 4

Output of alsa-info has been attached.

Expected results:
Having the headset just working after connecting and switching it on, or at least after selecting it as output device in the configuration.

Additional info:
The streaming logic of USB-audio has been rewritten and pulled into Linux 3.5:

The pull request refers to itself for new problems with usb-audio.

Ubuntu got a bug about this hardware, but it seems to be related to xserver-xorg-input-evdev and Ubuntu 12.04 (Linux 3.2.x):
Comment 1 tobias.rudert 2012-12-23 05:02:49 EST
Works on Linux 3.6.10-2.fc17.x86_64.
Comment 2 Timothy M. Butterworth 2015-11-10 13:05:47 EST
I am no longer able to get The H800 to pair with Fedora 23 Kernel 4.2.5! When placing the headset into pairing mode KDE detects the headset but then gives a pairing fails message.
