I havent tried the headset's HID feature with any other
applications. Do you have any suggestions?
I've tested the device on a Windows machine since the "special keys"
options only exists on Windows. Sound is okay, but no reliable key
event for Jitsi.
By reliable I mean, out of frustration I've done some trial-and-error.
I tried different configurations with the Jabra Suite software and
at some point I made the Jitsi write "Special" in the input field,
when pushing various buttons on the headset. But I can't reproduce
that situation anymore.

It is my experience with Jabra that they require specific support and
use of a proprietary API. There might be some HID in that but it doesn't
behave like mainstream standard keyboard-like HID.
