Pairing the new wireless accessories with an OMEN 30L Desktop featuring an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPU, wireless and powerful gaming takes on the next level of play.
"Gamers have long been hesitant to go fully wireless with their accessories due to concerns over lag, battery life, and overall quality, despite the strong desire for more space efficiency, especially with streaming setups becoming more widespread," said Judy Johnson, Director of Gaming and Esports, HP Inc. "HP continues to break new ground with the expansion of our world-class OMEN ecosystem to enhance gaming experiences with wireless freedom with wired performance into our portfolio with zero compromise."

OMEN Frequency Wireless Headset provides lag-free audio, so players never miss a critical sound during intense gameplay. Wireless has grown by leaps and bounds with gamers today now spending 40% of their time using a wireless connection, 33% of their time using 3.5 mm connection, and 24% of their time using USB when it comes to gaming headsets. Experience flawless audio with powerful 7.1 surround sound and C-Media Xear combined with customizable EQ and Lighting within OMEN Command Center to create a powerful and personalized soundscape. Supported by up to 30 hours of battery life, USB-C charging, and an environmental noise cancelling microphone, this headset is built for accurate and reliable wireless audio immersion.

OMEN Vector Wireless Mouse debuts as the world's fastest USB-C charging gaming mouse. Desires for a wireless experience have extended to mice as well, with nearly half of gamers preferring a wireless mouse option. Yielding up to 10 hours of battery life in a mere five minutes of charging and a full charge in 90 minutes with up to 180 hours of battery life, gamers can simply charge and play. This mouse checks the boxes for lag-free gaming including OMEN Command Center integration for sensitivity settings, key binds and lighting, a 16000 DPI Pixart PAW3335 Wireless Sensor, and Omron mechanical switches with a 50 million click lifespan.

Designed for meeting this transition, the keyboard comes with dual mode for the freedom to play wirelessly or wired. With up to 75 hours of play, it takes five minutes of USB-C charging to generate six hours of battery life without backlight, all monitored and controlled within OMEN Command Center.

OMEN 30L Desktop is taking graphics performance to the next level with the introduction of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3090, NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080, and NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3070 GPUs. The new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 30 Series GPUs - the 2nd generation of RTX - features new RT Cores, Tensor Cores and streaming multiprocessors, bringing stunning visuals, amazingly fast frame rates, and AI acceleration to games and creative applications. Powered by the NVIDIA Ampere architecture, which delivers increases of up to 1.9X performance-per-watt over the previous generation, the RTX 30 Series effortlessly powers graphics experiences at all resolutions, even up to 8K at the top end.

If you're willing to spend so much on peripherals, might as well just dump this cr*p and acquire audiophile ressembling headphones and a seperate mic that doesn't suck a**, entry hot swappable mech board and decent sensor mouse that isn't overpriced.

For PC VR, HP reverb G2 will be perfect stating point. Decent resolution and hoping the motion control will be better as they are now collaborating with Microsoft for MR and Steam for VR.

G1 controllers are horrible. I used it once and never did again. I have a PS4 controller that I use for everything in VR and PC race sim...

I love Fallout 4 and bought it again the VR version for 45$ but I was unable to play it with the crappy G1 controller as it either goes AWOL or starts point skyward... Finally I ended up buying VorpX and started playing Standard Fallout 4 version in VR and I am even able to use Keyboard and mouse. I simply love it will 45+ GB of mods I have installed lol

Hopefully the controllers will be good this time. If you don't have PC VR headset and have been holding off for a decent one, then G2 will be for you. But you will have to face their horrible support tho lol
