Latest pulseaudio release lacks proper support for SteelSeries headsets. Fix for these issues are already merged upstream but did not make the 12.2 release.
These 3 patches are needed:
I recently acquired a SteelSeries Arctis 7 and can confirm the 3 commits are enough to make it work properly.
pulseaudio-13.0 was released yesterday, I would then simply bump to it directly to get this and many other fixes
Yeah, it makes sense.

media-sound/pulseaudio: bump to 13.0, migrate neon to CPU_ARM_FLAGS
This release removes explicit addition of -ffast-math to CFLAGS, as PA
needs to deal with negative infinite for volumes, as the volume-test
failing with -ffast-math demonstrates.
