Anyone experience headset drift?

I notice a slight headset drift. I keep having to center the headset. It's very slight and doesn't always happen but I did notice it and wanna know if anyone else has this issue.

    I haven’t experienced this. I only have about 6 hours of use though, 2 hour gaming, 4 hour movies, but in that limited experience, haven’t had any issue with drifting.

    In my experience so far with Go, the drift seems pretty low. However, as with any 3dof system, it can happen. While some small amount of drift may be normal, if it seems to happen in an excessive amount, you should contact us. Thanks. https://support.oculus.com/

    It's normally rock-solid without anything like a slow drift, but sometimes I'll come out of an experience back to its main menu or exit it, and I'll find things have shifted like 30 degrees to the right and I have to re-center. The controller can get off by similar amounts. I haven't figured out if there's a particular sequence of head movements that is more likely to confuse it. But for things like static Netflix watching it's been solid so far.

    Thanks. It is a very small issue. Sometimes it doesn't happen at all. It may be the way i'm handling the hmd idk. When I used to use cardboard drastic movements would throw the sensor off. Because the silly holder required you to throw the phone into the holder really fast the screen would sometimes spin out of control until you set the phone down for 10 seconds.

    Mine drifts every day.  Not a constant drift, but little jerks to the left.  Might have something to do with my head angle?

    I've had it suddenly go off to the left so I have to turn my head to see the center. Using the centering button didn't fix it. Quitting the app and restarting did.

    Holding the O button on the controller just set's the controller's "forward" direction. For the headset orientation you have to press O once to get out to the home menu, then under Settings (which may come up automatically if you're in an app when you do it) there's a "Reset View" option in the middle of the menu bar that will let you set your display "forward" wherever you want it.

    Only in the 'Face your fears' app thus far and it's always to the left, particularly in the bed one.

    I get a lot of drift when using the void cinema when lying down. But none really using static cinema backgrounds.

    I just tried The Well and it was some of the worst drifting I've experienced thus far, though that may be down to it being a longer experience. It kept drifting to the right, which is a new one for me. Had to exit the game to correct it every couple of minutes, until I decided it wasn't worth it.

    It's a shame because it looked to be a good experience and had beautiful visuals, hopefully it gets corrected down the line.

    -edit

    Noticed there was drift in the main menu that wasn't previously there, indicating something was up. I rebooted the headset while it lay flat on a table, I'm not sure if the recalibration or rebooting helped but drifting improved significantly after. Sorry for blaming the above mentioned game, I've corrected my review.

    I noticed a little drift to the left in Netflix.
