The sound from the rift headphones is not working well, it will work for a little while then turn off. I ran Pandora on my computer, and hear the music in the rift headset, I left my headset off and on the desk next to me, and it never stopped. I put my headset on and sat there for a couple minutes and it continued to play the music. Then I picked up my left and right touch controllers and started moving around the home area, and within about 5 seconds the sound stopped again.
When the audio stops, I can go to my playback devices in sound settings on my computer, and the sound level appears stuck at the point in which the sound stopped. If I do anything to the rift headphone settings and press apply, audio begins working again, but then will stop working after I spend a little time with the headset on.
I have rift audio setting set to rift headset, and my computer audio settings has the rift headset device as default playback device.

You mentioned having my playback sound set default to my normal playback device (speakers) and not the rift headset, will it auto switch when I put the headset on? It doesn't seem like that was the case, but then again it hasn't been working till now.
