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...

    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.

    The Rift S play area depends on sufficient ambient lighting and (guessing here >>> ) successful exits from the app to save your play area.  If your lighting changes, for example: you play in morning, afternoon, then late at night and you go from natural to artificial lighting, it needs to re-detect the area.  Unlike the Rift, which used infrared positioning and 2+ standalone USB sensors, the Rift S using 5 cameras on headset to track.  Good and bad.

    ***SOLUTION*** If anyone finds this post, I had this problem too. The Rift S was working properly after setup, and decided after a couple of days and several PC reboots to suddenly drop audio, with the message "No headset audio"  appearing in the Oculus software as well as in VR, even though my headphones were working fine. Also, there was no available option in either place to adjust volume. After some research, I read that each USB port, or group of USB ports on a PC are often run by separate pieces of driver code. So, even though they all may be USB 3.0 ports, with respect to the fiddly details of code they may not all be exactly the same. After some trial and error, what resolved the issue for me was trying each USB 3.0 port on the back of my tower until I found one that worked; once I plugged into a USB port the Rift S liked, the issue resolved, with no error appearing in the Oculus software or in VR, and volume options again were available. I hope this helps someone.

    My solution was different.Back along i was using some other software and disabled the rift s microphone,i completely forgot about it(type: control panel in the search bar/sounds/recording tab).right click the rift s microphone and enable.Alternatively,some users may hav disabled it in device manager.This also explains why people are getting sounds through the headset still getting the audio warning in the oculus app.Hope that helps some people.
