and the command with the head set is the same

at this path I don’t have the profile ‘analog stereo output’

It seams that you could not understand the issue I tried to point out in the first answer. Lets try it again with more examples.

If you check the page:
Headphone Jacks and Plugs: Everything You Need to Know - Headphonesty

You will find your type of connector you have on the Headset. Right click on the picture and past the link to the image.

Tell us also what the connector looks like on the laptop/computer.

What I try to say, If the connector from you Laptop/Computer not matches you can not get a physical connection with your computer. The system not recognizes the Headphone.

While with Bluetooth you use a protocol which your headset and the computer understands, you will be able to make a connection, and no physical wiring is needed.

My headphone is a 4-conductor plug (TRRS) (
If you want the tech specs of my headset it’s this one: HS50 PRO STEREO Gaming Headset — Carbon
My computer can use my headset because I already use it on Windows with the mic

If you want more information my sound system is:
Intel Corporation Comet Lake PCH-LP cAVS

the command aplay -l provide me this respond:
