I mean, it should be fixable very easily, as applying an equaliser setting to boost bass works well, except that it can't be applied at bootup as the device is not present until SteamVR is running. For me, the quality is fine, it's just the quantity, i.e. VOLUME that is lacking. Regarding the device not being present, what really blows my mind about that is that even in SteamVR itself, I can't set the Audio settings to automatically switch to the correct device because the device comes & goes. So I set it to Nvidia HDMI audio and next time I come it, it's reverted back to "no change". Every time I start SteamVR I have to remember to make sure my playback device is set to the correct device. Not only that but two years ago when I bought my Vive, this problem did not exist and when I bought my Deluxe Audio Strap it made plenty of volume. Sorry to get on a soapbox, but I think it also a cop-out to blame it on Nvidia because even though yes, I concede that they are the ones driving the headphones, we all know that the sound can be boosted via software because of the various EQ and effects utilities that do so, including for example the bass boost in Windows if you feel like monkeying around with that every time the device gets recreated.
