i got my rift s on release day and everything worked fine until yesterday. when i plugged in my headphones to the audio jack and tried to speak on discord nothing was being picked up. i then tried to speak with out the headphones and still didnt work. so i tried in game to see if it was just discord but it didnt work in game either. anyone know a possible fix to this?

I'm having the same problem. Disconnecting and reconnecting the USB fixes it, but it's only temporary. Kind of wishing I didn't upgrade to the Rift S, as this wasn't happening with the Rift. I've had this problem since day one, so I haven't been able to enjoy the headset this entire time. I had taken a few months off from using it partially because I was waiting for a fix. It's very disappointing that the problem still persists after this long (even after firmware updates).

I have to keep resetting my USB connection as well. I really hope they find a fix for this soon. I need a working microphone!

I'm using my laptops mic since I guess the rift s one is not working. I could keep unplugging it all day but I'd rather play a game.

Yeah I gave up on the Rift S mic a little while ago, constant drop outs, got a desktop mic that works great every time.

I also have this issue and have tried everything,but no solution. So I am thinking of getting a desktop mic. Mind I ask which one you have?

Working great for me. 
Cept I always get a red notification in Oculus Home that I have no audio, which I do so it does not effect anything.

I cannot believe this is still an issue.  I too have a headset from release day and my microphone doesn't work majority of the time.  Sometimes I can get it to work by unplugging the USB and then back in again, sometimes i have to reboot, sometimes it takes days or weeks for either to even work which makes no sense.  Such an expensive headset should not have such a crappy microphone.
