low volume / weak sound on oculus rift s

I have a sound issue on my Oculus rift S.
The sound is weak even i set the volume to 100% in most applications.
And there does not seem to be any problem when I plug in a headset.

Thank you for your help.

    According to my experience the volume 100% on Rift S is similar to the volume 10% on Rift CV1. 
    There was a software update to improved this (1.38). But the audio quality still bad and volume still very weak.
    I bought a pair of on-ear clip earphones and mount them on headset to fix the audio.

    i bought a set of Sennheiser HD 4.30i headphones and they sound really good and fit over the rift s without issue.

    I purchased Klipsch R6 II earbuds and they sound fantastic with the Rift S.
    I actually prefer earbuds myself anyway so that option worked out well for me.
