Quest 3: No Sound, only when using Air Link for wireless PCVR


Hi All,

Solved: Repair the installation of the Oculus PC app by running the installer again and selecting repair. Mine took two attempts, as the first repair crashed mid-repair.

Problem: When using Air Link to play wireless PCVR, I have no sound though the headset speakers or through headphones that are plugged into the headset. I DO have sound under all other circumstances and conditions, including playing PCVR via steam link and virtual desktop, and the headset by itself.  


I am unable to locate any existing advice that goes beyond the following settings, which all appear to be in line with recommendations.


I doubt it matters, but my hardware is as follow:

  • Microsoft Windows 10 Pro, Version 10.0.19045 Build 19045
  • Meta Link App Version (
  • CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5700x
  • Memory: 16GB DDR4 
  • Mobo: TUF Gaming x570-PLUS
  • GPU: PNY GeForce RTX® 4080 16GB XLR8 Gaming Verto Epic-X


What I've tried:

  • reinstalling Oculus on the PC.
  • Setting Playback device to Oculus Virtual Audio Device.
  • A clean reinstall of windows.
  • Replace m2 drive.
  • Update drivers for bios, motherboard, cpu, gpu.
  • Ensure headset software is up to date.

Against every expectation, repairing the installation of the Oculus PC software brought me audio when using Air Link. I am shocked, honestly. Thanks.
