Since 1.39 i get this stupid message that i have no Rift S headset audio set as default audio device. This is because i use my own and way better headset then this lousy Rift S headset. Oculus close one bug (usb message) and opens another one... tzzz...

    Yep, that happened to me.

    Mine seemed to fix itself after i turned off my computer and returned from work.

    I get this message even when I enable the Rift S headphones and get sound coming from them!
    I just ignore it

    This also just started happening with mine after 2 days brand new.  Audio is working fine so makes no sense.

    More annoying is having to setup my play area multiple times. 
    Why does the system not save and remember it is already setup !!?? 

    This sort of bug should not happen after such a tine since release.

    Same issue here. 1.42 PTC.  Even if I roll back, After launching Oculus software once or twice I get the red "No Headset Audio" alert at some point. Meanwhile the audio is actually working through the headset and 3.5mm headphone jack on the headset, no problem.

    Mine is fixed and I cannot confirm absolutely but seems that by selecting the Audio as Windows default and playing some music then changing it back to Rift S and rebooting has sorted it out.
