Oculus founder sends free repair kits for Rift headsets

Former Facebook employee and Oculus co-founder Palmer Luckey is helping to repair VR headsets free of charge. Long-term users of Facebook's Oculus headset have complained about audio loss in one or both earpieces. Despite leaving the company in 2017, Mr Luckey is offering to ship his custom repair kit to gamers who aren't able to get their headsets replaced by Oculus.
