Well there are still over 1 million people happily using the CV1 i believe, and you can still buy most of the accessories.

Of course, who cares for Index and Alyx, I'm sure Luckey is right this time. And amazing he has time to post, I thought he was working fulltime fixing CV1 headphones 😉



I think he might just want to look popular with all the emails he will get. I emailed him 3 times asking him to send his fix but got no reply.

Sounds like it was just a publicity stunt with no intent on following through.

I didn't bother as it took me 10 minutes and a bit of phone wire to fix mine.

I tried with different bits of wire but for some reason I couldn't get the left side to work. I must be doing something wrong because the right one works and all I'm doing is making a connection to to left side headphone, which is the one that doesn't work.

I did find it a bit difficult trying to keep the wire on the little pin that pushes in because I have very big hands. Can you link me to the wire you used exactly and did you place the wire on the bottom pins? I would really like to get this to work because I'm having to use headphones atm. Cheers!

But... Luckey is right. SuperData is nothing but baseless statistics. It's worthless.
Hyped for the Quest 2!


My hopes for VR next gen:
- Full Body Tracking. Come on, Oculus!
- Eye tracking with foveated rendering. Must reduce the power needs!
- More big-scale games. I need a true VRMMORPG!
- Bigger community.

@RedRizla Just the blue/white wire of a normal UK telephone extension cable. I just had a bit in the garage so didn't buy it for the purpose and not sure of make but they are all pretty much the same. My right ear wasn't working. I believe I connected the top two which I think is the reverse if you have a left ear problem.

This is the one I followed. Try top to top and if it don't work try bottom to bottom.

I'll get some pictures of my headset tonight, not that you can see much apart from the cable going into the ear bit.
I found a single wire from a telephone extension is quite tough and yet very thin, so it is easy to screw into place.

It was a little tricky to hold it in place while screwing at the same time but I have that issue in other areas also 😉

Hi  Red,

So here is the shot of my old girl. So three tips

1. Use the phone wire as it is very thin and tough when bending into shape.
2. Make a little loop on the end of the wire that fits in and around the hole, this helps it secure better.
3. Cut the plastic a little back from the black plastic outer circle so it sits flusher and therefore screws in closer.

Cheers
