To fix this issue, install the May 7, 2019, update (KB4464532) for Microsoft Skype for Business 2016.

Before you apply this update, make sure that you create a GPO to add a new DWORD registry key DisableSecondaryRingerEnablingByDefaultForHeadset and set the value to in the path:

Set-CsClientPolicy -Identity "<ClientPolicyName>" -PolicyEntry @{Add=$x}
