You're right on about that. Especially coming from a CV1 or Rift S. Airlink alone to me makes it a justifiable upgrade over those, but add in the image quality bump, 120hz mode, better ergonomics and comfort, and for $299 -- it is every bit of a true Gen 2 over CV1. My one and only "gripe" is the audio in the head strap opposed to the headphone style in the CV1. But again, for the asking price this is a tradeoff I will make. If they could just add some Index style off ear speakers to Plus/Pro... You're within a refund window now with Connect on the 28th, I vote go for it and see what you think! Absolute worst case is that you get all of your money back.
I added the Vive Deluxe Audio strap to mine and it's much better. It's pricey at $99, but it's better than the standard audio. I really hope the new Plus version is just the quest 2 with a better strap with audio. So, that standard quest 2 users can just upgrade to the Plus using their Modular design.

I bought a new strap for mine. It makes a huge difference in comfort and ease of use. The original strap caused too much pressure on my forehead. I also added a battery pack which allows me to play for around 7.5-8 hours straight.

oh that's a good point! I would be satisfied with that. I have the elite strap only because I ordered it with the HMD on day 1, and didn't really think to wait and see what other options may come along. I probably would have went with the Vive audio strap had I not been so impatient (though, no regrets at all as far as comfort and adjustability with the Elite strap)

Yep I agree. The original strap is just too stretchy and you really have to tighten it so that it HMD won't bounce around with sudden/quick movement, which then becomes way too uncomfortable. Would you say that your battery upgrade also helped the balance making the HMD as whole more comfortable? Or is the extra weight noticeable?

Also, have you given thought to a VR Cover face pad or something similar? It's definitely another step up in terms of comfort.

@Franzen4Real The battery is very light but yes it does help balance the entire thing for sure.
As for the VR cover, no I haven't. I find the stock cover to be fine. As it wears out I may consider one at that point. They certainly look nice!

Here is my latest form.. lol I had to buy white PLA and replace the blue parts I printed. lol Now it matches. I'm still rocking my Rift DK1 carrying case as well. @Franzen4Real I like the new Kiwi pro strap as well. I also like the new BoboVR halo Strap. If either had audio I would seriously consider getting one. My DAS is gettting old.. It was a day one order for my Vive. It was also defective where the dye washed out of the pad. It was fine without it but it just made it look old. lol Which it is now because it came out June 6th 2017. The audio still sounds grate and it dial on the back still works great too.

Those look like some great options to mod the Oculus Quest 2. I think I would opt for the Kiwi Pro strap personally.

BTW, I just had a horrible thought. We've had it fairly easy with respect to availability for OCulus HMDs. It just occurred to me that there could be supply chain issues with a new HMD. Scalpers might also want to get in on the action if they feel like they can control relatively small supply of a new HMD.

So FB Connect could be a harbinger of the problems that we have seen with other products as of late and for the foreseeable future.

So, looks like the Vive Flow event was a bust. Disappointing would be an understatement. It’s not worth it’s own thread IMO. I honestly don’t know what HTC is doing. It’s almost as if the company has no direction.

New Premium Deluxe Audio strap for Quest 2! I like how you can fold everything into itself for easy storage. Watch the video on Amazon.

This looks like the same strap. I like it but it also looks as though it might be a bit disappointing. Price is likely an issue. If its cheep then game on but if not its might have to be a no go,...

Edit:

Also I don't necessarily think audio needs to be built into the strap. If not done very well, it just comes off like a checkmark feature rather then a really well thought out design.

The headrest portion looks as though it isn't adjustable at all. If so there is no reason to think one size fits all and its almost certainly not going to work for everyone.

That one is the first gen. The one I linked to is the second gen with pu leather where the 1st gen just had foam. I have never seen it.. It was funny I searched amazon for Deluxe audio strap pad replacement and the was in the search. Searching Quest 2 this doesn't show up. I wish we had more audio options. Hopefully after FB Connect we will have something official.

For me, I don't want something else strapped to my head, so I end up using the sub par Quest audio opposed to head phones/earbuds. I really want to keep things simple and minimal (in regards to what I'm wearing). The off-ear Index style to me is the best solution. My ultimate dream would be somehow/someway of getting the HMD to connect with my Atmos receiver, and the sound to pan in sync with head movement (similar to the spatial audio that we already have in VR). I would imagine that could create a pretty intense audio environment, especially with subwoofers included.

The built in audio is much better than a lot of people give it credit. My only issues is that it is to loud for others in the same room which is why I mainly use headphones, but I do like having nothing on my ears in VR. I kind of have the best of both worlds using my DAS. I can flip the headphones out.

The Oculus anniversary sale (2021) is over today. So the Quest 2 is 1 year old. Given the sale on some of the games I was going to buy one or two but I missed out. I probably would have purchased “Red Matter“ as it was something like ~$14 USD. I think “Space Pirate Trainer was on sale too”. However, I wanted “Stormland VR” and I don’t think that was on sale.

Oh well,….

Get ready for more sales as we get closer to christmas. I know Oculus has a sale around the same time Valve has their Fall and winter sale. I picked up Asgards wrath and Lone Echo last year for 19.99 each. Stormland VR was on sale for 19.99 as well. If you don't have Lone Echo or Asgard's Wrath then I say pick those up too. I plan on picking up Stormland on the next sale as well.

Stormland on sale is a definite buy

It says 13 years or older, but both my daughters have played all of mine VR HMDs for years. They love playing together in Rec Room. You do need to watch them in online social stuff. If you make kid accounts in Rec Room then the mic does not work and you can't hear anyone else. They play in the same room and just talk to each other. I would limit their time as well and make them take breaks.

Get ready for more sales as we get closer to christmas. I know Oculus has a sale around the same time Valve has their Fall and winter sale. I picked up Asgards wrath and Lone Echo last year for 19.99 each. Stormland VR was on sale for 19.99 as well. If you don't have Lone Echo or Asgard's Wrath then I say pick those up too. I plan on picking up Stormland on the next sale as well.
Yeah, I bought Lone Echo for ~$9.99 USD. I had been holding out on that game for quite a while but just didn’t want to buy an Oculus exclusive title. The low price caught me at a weak moment. I still want Stormland VR and Space Pirate Trainer.

I have Lone Echo not sure what I paid for it but barely played it. They FINALLY got me with a headset only game. Star Wars, Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. Being a SW junkie I couldn’t resist. It’s a fun enough game but I’m currently stuck in a frustrating mission loop I can’t figure out…
Definitely gonna keep an eye on Stormland it looks quite good and wasn’t on my radar. I was gonna buy it today because it was offering me the 30% discount but it always breaks my Oculus software(just get a grey screen)happened before so I went to the website to buy it(worked last time) but it doesn’t show up in the store there …guess I’ll wait for a sale…

I am somewhat interested in Star Wars, Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge. However I have the Star Wars Vader immortal bundle (free with the Quest) and while it’s OK it didn’t wow me enough to motivate a purchase of anything similar.

If you see Asgard's Wrath on sale then it's a great game as well. That's odd about the discount. I just got the 30% discount too.

I have the Galaxy's Edge as well and it's more of a game than Vader immortal. It's really good and pushes the Quest 2 graphics wise. I'd say pick it up for sure. If you like games like Alien Isolation then Jurassic world is good too. I didn't think i would like the graphics but it works really well and looks great.

You‘ve sold me on the idea. As soon as there are discounted prices I’ll give it a go.

BTW, what is this 30% off of which you speak?

Yeah it basically breaks the app when I try to use the code. It’s not the first time. Stormland would have been a decent deal with it.

Facebook will send you an email with a discount code. Example 'OCULUS30'. On check out apply code to get the discount. I've received two so far.

I wonder if it's only for Quest/2? Check the fine print. I've only used my discount codes on the Quest store. Try buying it from the phone app as well.

Brilliant!

I’ll have to check my email which I tend to let laps. Last time I checked I received a $10 coupon from Oculus but it expired by the time I noticed.

I probably wouldn’t look twice at an email via FB as I don’t really use the platform. I’ll take a look see now though.
