Headphones not working, Fedora 23?

I just bought a new pair of headphones, and they don't seem to work at all with my Fedora 23 install. There's just no audio, despite pavucontrol recognizing them. When I test it, I just hear nothing.

Without the headphones plugged in, it works fine with my laptop speakers. It's a Lenovo W5421 if that matters.

The only thing I can think of is that the headphones just are not compatible, which would really suck. I guess they're technically a headset since they have a mic on them. What should I do to debug this?
