Please execute step 2, then send us the full terminal output from step 3 and step 4 from this procedure:

https://help.ubuntu.com/community/SoundTroubleshootingProcedure

Please also specify the exact model and make of your wired headset.

And please verify that the microphone cable of the headset is connected to the correct line-in/mic jack on your sound card.....

Please use gnome-alsamixer to UNMUTE and increase volume for the mixer channels listed above (Capture, Mic, Front mic, etc...)

do you have two jacks for mic (in the front and back) if so go to system > preferences > sound ,click on input tab and try changing the 'connector' from mic1 to mic2. make sure it is not muted and try increase the volume
