When I plug or unplug my JBL headphones with mic, the sound is being adjusted (for example, if I previously had the volume turned off when I unplug my headphones the volume becomes muted, and vice versa).

For some reason, I'm not able to make the elementary OS Juno to automatically select Dock Microphone by default when I plug them in thus I have to manually switch it every time. Do you have any ideas of how this could be set up so that when the headphones with the mic are plugged in, the system automatically uses the headphone's mic instead of a built-in one?

Thank you!

Can't check if eOS has pulseaudio installed by default right now, if it's not there then apt install first. Then follow this answer to automatically switch to a newly connected device.
