    Hi,
    If you can't turn it off you could just turn down the volume.

    Failing that, you could stab the speakers with a screwdriver. That works for me every time.

    I remouved the Rift sprekers but the Rift sofware send the sound in my wirell headset.  I try to turn it off, then mute in the Oculus software but as soon as I touch the volome on my head set then the stupid sound start all over agan.  I feel to sell the Rift to get someting else

    From your Oculus home press the small left controller menu button.  Go to Preferences/audio and adjust or mute background music and maybe also sound effects.  This works for me with 12.1.

    Ya, go to your Oculus desktop app settings tab.  At the bottom disable start in oculus home slider.  Next time you startup you will be homeless.
