    It’s on a oculus rift not an S and there’s also static

    I had that and turned out to be my HMD cable. I guess from the twisting and such it just ended up breaking something inside the cable.  once I purchased the replacement from the oculus accessory store I haven't had the problem in a long time, almost 9 months now.  It use to happen every other play session.

    Put in a Ticket to get you a new cable even if out of warranty but have a receipt.
