You will hopefully see an ALC number. An example is something like this.
card 2: Generic [HD-Audio Generic], device 0: ALC221 Analog [ALC221 Analog] Subdevices: 0/1 Subdevice #0: subdevice #0

$ sudo shutdown -r now

options snd-hda-intel model=headset-mic
Save. Reboot. Check.
P.S. It is common for new devices to be muted at first. If the option showed up but isn’t working check for that.
You may need to run …
