Poor Sound Quality

New Pro owner here (2 Days old), 'Upgraded' from a Rift, and enjoying the improvment in Visuals.

 

However the sound is Horrible, no bass at all. Elite Dangerous sounds like i am listerning via a couple of Baked Beans tin cans! Googling this has thrown up numerous issues, but all seem to be dating back to april-oct 2018. Has this issue been resolved? If so could someone point me in the direction of the fix? If not fixed, could someone also tell me as it REALLY is putting me off the Pro, and honestly it is that bad it is sending me back to installing the Rift again and taking off ebay.

 

Is the only fix to attatch a 3rd party DAC USB-C Amp and running a decent pair of headphones?

 

Sorry if you have read all this before, but save my Pro please from going back in the box, as the visuals are outstanding, but the audio is OMG BAD!!

 

Thank you

 

PS> Have updated all firmware

Re: Poor Sound Quality

So 45 Views and no replies? So you all have perfect Audio from your £1100 Vive Pro then? Hmmm must be my headset, best return it then and get a Pimax.

Noone from Vive Tech support want to Chip in on this Post? No? Really? you are proud of the sound your £1100 product supplies then?

 

SHAME!! as the visuals are much better than the Rift, but.........!
