Earlier this year Oculus began offering additional Sensors for sale along with and their new Earphones. Now all the in-the-box accessories can be purchased as well.
Oculus is now selling four replacement products for items that come in the Rift box: the Remote ($29), headset cable ($49), on-ear headphones ($39), and ‘Fit’ ($29, what the company is calling the headset’s foam facial interface). The pricing seems fairly reasonable, though is largely more expensive than similar replacement accessories offered for the HTC Vive.
With the recent addition of experimental support for ‘room-scale’ experiences on the Rift, many have asked Oculus to offer a longer headset cable, though the one now available separately is the same 4 meter length as the original.
In a recent blog post, Oculus has recommended this third-party HDMI cable, but warns that the Rift isn’t designed to work with longer cables and that they haven’t done enough testing to guarantee it will work. If you’re using an HDMI extension, you’ll also need to extend the USB end of the same cable, for which Oculus suggests (and again, doesn’t guarantee) this USB 3.0 extension cable. USB cable extensions for Sensors are in the same boat, with Oculus giving unofficial recommendations for active USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 cables.
