Rift Headphones Left Side going in and out

NordicForgeNordicForge Posts: 3
I am not sure if anyone else has had or been having headphone issues, but my left side headphone is going in and out of sound. I can flick it up twice to get it to come back some times, not hard but a soft flick. Not sure how to get to tech support to find out if its something that needs to be sent in for repair or not. Only had it for 5 months and it doesn't get a lot of daily use. Maybe couple times a week.

    Hello! Sounds like this needs to be investigated by the Oculus tech team, please submit a  support ticket here:

    Core i7-7700k @ 4.9 Ghz | 32 GB DDR4 Corsair Vengeance @ 3000Mhz | 2x 1TB Samsung Evo | 2x 4GB WD Black
    ASUS MAXIMUS IX HERO | MSI AERO GTX 1080 OC @ 2000Mhz | Corsair Carbide Series 400C White (RGB FTW!) 

    Be kind to one another :)

    Search the  forum there are a lot of responses for this very common issue.

    First thing I would try is use the supplied screw driver to remove the ear piece (1 screw) and clean the copper contacts, mine has occurred a few times last time I cleaned with an ear bud and mentholated spirits and have had zero issues since. 

    Some times it is just the screw has worked loose and tightening the screw fixes it.
