Headphone only plays one channel- defective ear piece

When I first plugged in my rift one headphone didn't work. Upon tightening it's plastic screw it began working.

Now the other earphone has stopped working after less than 24 hrs. Tried tightening, removing, inspecting, reinstalling and restarting with no luck. Is it a dud headphone, driver issue?? Help!

    Since my post the problem went away then came back the next day. Driver issue? Dud earpieces?

    Have ticket open with support and will update as develops.

    Bump...

    UPDATE: I physically removed and swapped the R channel to L and vice versa. The audio then worked, and continued to do so after I swapped them back to their proper channels. Who knows what happened. I expect the audio will drop out again soon.

    Same happened to me; came here for answers.  Is this a recurring problem for a lot of people?

    For what it's worth, I also just removed and reattached the right headphone and sound is coming out of it again-- so that's something people should try for sure.

    My right headphone stopped working.  No luck swapping them.  The left side works with both headphones.  Something with the connection of the right?
