Favid_Feynman Posted May 18, 2018 Share Posted May 18, 2018 I bought a HTC Vive Pro a few weeks ago and I have not been able to enjoy one single session with it without dealing with bugs. I won't even go into all of them, the most common one is audio not playing through the headphone speakers. Googling reveals numerous people reporting the issue. I've tried everything, installing and uninstalling the software, drivers, etc. I keep the hub connected to the same USB port and don't connect or disconnect anything else from the computer. I select it to always play audio through the headset. Next thing I know, it's back to the computer speakers. Then I select it back to HTC Vive, no sound. Then I have to either turn the hub on and off, or uninstall and reinstall the drivers. To make matters worse, the engineers didn't even design a freaking test tone into the sound settings. Seriously?! So I have to keep trying to start a freaking game looking through the headset to do something that should create sound in the game, so I can troubleshoot! And I don't even invite guests to try it because it's going to be embarassing to have to spend 5-10 minutes getting the sound to work. Laptop is Asus GL702V with GTX1080. Hard to put into words what a disgusting experience owning this has been, I feel like I threw away $3500. Hope there is a solution, very frustrated right now, every aspect of the purchase from beginning to end has been a bad experiece, this is just the biggest one. End of rant.
