This document provides the hardware requirements for Teams for Linux: https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoftteams/hardware-requirements-for-the-teams-app#hardware-requirements-for-teams-on-linux. However, it does not list the detailed headset information.
I did not find any other efficient solutions now.

Anyone find a MS Teams for Linux headset combo that works?
I have seen a lot of posts and queries on the Internet with users trying to figure out what hardware works with MS Teams client for Linux. Has anyone found hardware that works with the Linux MS Teams client? I either need a wireless solution or a wired USB solution that can reach at least 10ft/3m. 15ft/4.5m would certainly reach.
logitech webcam c920 works for audio and video. i'm having a hard time getting teams to work correctly with bluetooth headsets though - i have 2, they both work fine with zoom, but not with teams

I was really hoping one of the users actually got something working with this. Yes long term it would be nice if Microsoft documented what works too.
I wasn't able to find a webcam or headset that worked, more due to no webcams or headsets being in stock due to the Pandemic.
What did work was a Yanmai Q3B Gaming Microphone.
It gives good audio calls and is very simple and works well.
In Linux it shows up as a CM108 Audio controller and Teams on Linux mapped it automatically.
I'm using it with a 10ft USB 3.0 A-B extension cable.
It is a good news that you find the suitable headset for teams for Linux.
Teams control of audio devices under Linux is extremely poor.
It does not pickup any change or allow reconfiguration at all without requiring a restart of the application and re-authentication.
A physical Microphone with speakers does work but it is prone to picking up environmental noise and disturbs every one around me.
You still have to relaunch if you cannot leave a microphone plugged in.
The alternative is wired headset control but that works badly too.
A call comes in you have to answer it by text and say you will call them back, which they frequently do not see, relaunch the client after the headset is plugged in.
It's pretty toxic as end user experience goes...

I had tested the internal mic/speaker, headset, bluetooth devices and all is working. Just select your devices in Settings Device and do not keep the device configuration panel open for more than 1 minute.
I dont know why, but after a while Teams show an error message about the mic if you keep the device settings panel opened
