Oculus is finally getting serious about offering first-party ergonomic accessories. The company will offer several accessories for Quest 2 to help you get the ideal fit.

Quest 2 ships with a soft strap, but from our review of the headset we think you’re probably going to want something more substantial to add better support and a counterweight.

Quest 2 Announced with XR2, 90Hz, & New Controllers Starting at $300, Pre-orders Open for October 13th Launch

Luckily Oculus plans to offer an Elite Strap ($50) and Elite Battery Strap ($80) which will do just that. The Elite Battery Strap charges Quest 2 while you play and is set to nearly double the battery life. It also has its own charging port so you can charge the strap and headset’s battery together at once.

Along with the Elite Straps, Oculus will also offer a case for Quest 2 which has enough room for either the default soft strap or either of the Elite Straps. It also fits the controllers, charging block, and charging cable. The case will be priced at $50, but also sold in a bundle with the Elite Battery Strap for $130 together.

Oculus will also sell a ‘Fit Kit’ for $40 which will give you two additional Quest 2 face pads which are made for wider and narrower faces than the one that comes included with the headset. The Fit Kit will additionally include ‘light blockers’ that will help block light from entering through the nose cavity.

Oculus is further teaming with third-party accessory makers to make sure Quest 2 has even more officially licensed third-party accessories from the likes of Logitech and VR Cover.

    I ll keep using my HTC audio deluxe headstrap.

      It looks like the different head straps of the quest two have a similar mounting system as the HTC Vive, so I too will be using my deluxe audio strap!

      • Sofian

        Looks the same than the Quest, there will be 3d printed parts quickly but I ll be fine with some zip ties.

        • R3ST4RT

          I’ve got the headset pre-ordered and will probably CAD something up on day 1.

            Update: Watching Tested’s review of the Quest 2 reveals that the swapping of straps is not what I expected. It may be more difficult to mount the deluxe audio strap as it uses a weird flexible mounting cup to stay attached to the headset.

    This QUest 2 can cast to a tv screen. .. (assuming via bluetooth) could I not use bluetooth wireless earbuds or wireless noise cancelling headphones I already own with this?

    • Engineer_92

      Casting is done over wifi and bluetooth headphones should still work

      • Foreign Devil

        So far I have not read anywhere that bluetooth headphones work with Quest 2. The official logitech headphones they sell for it are both wired.

          The original quest has bluetooth as an experimental feature. Bluetooth headphones have delay though so it’s not great, especially for games like Beat Saber.

  • JB1968

    Ok so $399 for Quest2 + another $170 to actually don’t feel the painfull uncomfort in this headset. That it almost $600 for this Facebook’s miracle! Thank you very much sir, not interested.

    • Rupert Jung

      Err, no. $299 (64 GB) + $50 for the elite strap.

  • Smart idea: the basic headset is very cheap, but to have a really good comfort you have to buy overpriced accessories. that’s good for Fb business
