I experienced the same issue. After using my Quest 2, I no longer had PC audio (OS Windows 11). 

Problem: It seems the Oculus driver stack, changes the system audio input and output destinations, without restoring them to their original settings after use. (As I'd expect).

Fix: I manually return to system settings and restore my audio IO values too "normal", each time I use the Quest. It's inconvenient but that may be the source of the problem.  Included a screenshot of where to update the settings. 

I hope this helps. Best luck.
