I am so pleased!!!
I was crushed when my CV1 developed the issue that so many others have, where the right headphone suddenly decides to stop working. The CV1's headphones although not totally super-dooper, are just so convienient! I hated plugging in other headphones.
If the CV1 had to have one design flaw, I'm proper chuft it was this one. Because it is so easy to fix! And if I can do it...
All you need to do is run a length of wire connecting the bottom connector pin of the left headphone to the bottom pin of the right headphone. I had an old telephone cable which when stripped down contained a good few lengths of flex wire.
To do this you just mash the wire into the headphone's bottom pin hole on the rift itself, and then screw on the headphone (making sure the headphone pin has a good contact with the wire) - fiddly but much easier with someone else to screw the headphone in. Then mash the other end into the other side's bottom pin hole, screwing the headphones in as before.
