So, last week the dreaded the headphone fault developed on my Rift. The left headphone would only work when the headset was turned on it's left side, but then stopped working all together.

Not the end of the world, but it was inconvenient to have to place my other headset on to have sound. Made me appreciate those in-built headphones, which is one of the reasons I am skeptical about the new Quest.

Anyway, fair play to Oculus. Without a purchase receipt have asked me to send back for a refurbished replacement once they have conducted their own tests.

Yep did that, and cleaned the contacts. It was weird that the sound originally worked when turning left, as the headphone would be falling away from the contacts rather than the other way.
