Arch Linux and Sony WH-1000MX4

I recently got active noise-cancelling headphones (Sony WH-1000MX4). They work just fine with my Android phone but on my Linux notebook I had a bit of a fight to get them working. I am running Arch Linux on most of my machines, so this post is written with Arch specific commands, but most of them (and the general idea) should also work on Ubuntu or Debian based distros. Keep in mind that older versions of PulseAudio and/or PipeWire may not have the features described here!...
