Fix Rift S Microphone intermittent quality dropping (Robot / Metallic voice)
I'd like to request you guys to fix the intermittent microphone quality dropping that a lot of users are facing on the Rift S. Here's a link to show you how the issue shows up:
As you can listen the quality drop occurs just for a few seconds, but it's random and intermittent getting people annoyed in social games like Pavlov VR, VRChat and RecRoom. Hope you guys can fix it somehow. I have opened a support ticket already but they couldn't help me to fix the problem. Thanks.
I got this problem from a different angle: I usually use Bluetooth earphones; one time their batteries died and my friends immediately alerted me that my voice had turned robotic, just like in OP's clip. So the temporary solution is to use Bluetooth earphones/headphones (wired headphones don't fix this problem); that might be crummy, but it works for me. A secondary problem is that when I use my earphones, the left channel cuts in and out depending upon the position of the headset's cable; I solved this by putting on the earphones first before running Oculus Home. Hope this helps!
I have the same problem... Cant find a permant fix...

Both me and my friends have had it for months with the Rift S. Fix when?

Same here, my friends are saying that my voice sounds like a robot or loud static.
Please fix this

Same problem here, people was reporting me about my robot voice, one day after i got my rift S, and a friend who has the rift S too report's the same.

Might be a CPU issue.
if you have quality drops, you're lucky. Mine doesn't work period. Did all the solutions and fixes. At best I can get it working until Oculus boots up and then it goes back to sh!t, so I'm pretty sure it's their software/driver.

Same issue here as well. I have tried everything from completely reinstalling to going into beta and all sorts of crazy things that would be considered over kill. Please fix the mic situation. It got to the point where the only thing my pc was running was just the rift s and i still had the issue.
Same here - microphone sounds like static to other players. I have to use a desktop mic instead. Any hope for a fix? Thanks!
this is getting beyond a joke, first i had the black screen/static issue that they got me to try alsorts of fixes for until patch 1.39 now this. now from support i get "we notice from your logs your running AI suite 3 and sonic suite 3, SERIOUSLY? so a cpu/ram/fan manager is going to effect a mic? oh and make sure i have the latest drivers and software.
just be ******** honest with us and say theres a problem and your working in it

Yeah I asked for a replacement and I had the same problem with the mic its all metallic and robotic. I even tried ALL solutions and they keep giving me useless methods. I even used a different PC to test it and the mic still faded into a normal sound and back into said metal sound. It's pretty outrageous to send it back for the THIRD time.

I have the same problem as the person in this published video, I tried to reinstall all drivers, reinstall Oculus software and nothing solves my problem with Rift S.
That works intermittently, time works well, time has this problem of metallic voice and crashing.

When my microphone is on, the only thing people hear is static, nothing else. I think gaming tech that is this advanced should at least have a decent microphone, considering it's usually required in most multiplayer games.
Yes, I have this problem too. And I cannot go 10 minutes without my mic quality going haywire. Not only that it annoys me, but also friends on Discord, VRChat, and RecRoom. It's a straight up embarrassment, and a consistent bother to everyone.

Same problem. Hope oculus can fix it ASAP.
