Oculus Rift CV1 cable

Does anyone know where I could get a spare headset cable as I only have one left.  I still have a 2-year warranty on it as well and Oculus are unable to supply or let me buy one. 

Many thanks

I contacted a cable company and asked them if they could make the cable at $25 per cable and thay said they could. They just need the specs from oculus and need to know if oculus still owns the rights to the specs. I told oculus support and oculus support told me they are looking into solutions and to keep an eye on their blog

I've heard from a very techy Youtuber that making an Oculus cable is impossible as it's a very complicated cable on the inside.

Many local add sites have Oculus CV 1 for sale the CV1 and touch controllers some even have 3 sensors for like $300

Edit: just saw one $120 with 1 sensor like 10 minutes from where I live

Good old oculus rift cv1 with a new foam cover, extended cables, ceiling hooks and mount for room set up, with both fully functional controllers. It does come with both sensors but one is unfortunately non functional, poor bugger got broke during a move. It is still usable with one but I would recommend getting a second for a full room scale experience. This is a decent buy if your looking to get into vr on a budget. Cannot deliver, pickup only.

Yes worry about the cable and the fockers behind it.
