Public bug reported:

Whenever I choose the Jabra Evolve 65 UC Headset as the playback device,
there are sound chipmunks. The same was the case with Jabra Motion
Headset as well. But those two headsets worked perfectly in  Windows,
Mac OS and Android.

There was a workaround mentioned in by editing the
contents of /etc/pulseaudio/daemon.conf :





and then running

     pulseaudio -k

made the sound on Jabra good (no more chipmunks). Also, when I opened
the Sound Settings with the changes in daemon.conf in place, there seems
to be some distortions in headset sound, which goes away few seconds
after I close the sound settings window.

This problem should be fixed, as many new Linux users will find it
difficult to edit files requiring root access, and those who do not use
command line won't be okay with it.
