    This problem has been happening for me since the start of this year.
    I submitted a ticket to Oculus and got a replacement within a few days. The tech support and I both thought it was a fault with the cable or mic after going through all the troubleshooting.

    when I got the new headset It was good as new...... for a day. After that the sound came back and sounded even worse. This led me to believe it was a USB port issue (suspected dodgy motherboard USB) So this time I decided to order a PCI-e USB 3.0 expansion card hoping it would finally fix the problem but it didn't.

    So now I am left with the conclusion of 'there is no fix' but hopefully that wont be the case. another thought is that i might need to get a better motherboard although that's a lot of money for something that might not fix the problem. I cannot believe this problem still doesn't have a solution.

    if it helps here are my pc specs
    cpu: AMD ryzen 5 2600
    gpu: Sapphire nitro+ rx 580
    ram: hyperX fury DDR4 2x 8gb
    mobo: gigabyte AB350 gaming 3
