[ad_1]

1.

A lightweight head strap that’ll reduce the pressure on your head without affecting your gameplay. It’s made of absorbent and breathable cloth and vegan leather that’s washable, so cleanup after a sweaty workout or an intense VR session is so easy.

Note that this is only for first generation Oculus Quest. If you have a second generation Quest, skip to the next product!

Promising review: “The Quest is a fabulous piece of hardware that happens to weigh a bit and land all on your cheek bones. This strap SECURELY and EASILY attaches to the existing straps of the Quest and it adds padding, which makes the straps more comfortable. But the padding also secures the back of the straps to the back of your head BETTER so you end up with less weight on your cheekbones. I was able to play with my son for two hours with very little raccoon face afterwards! This works! And the price is right.” —SteveBFX

Get it from Amazon for $10.99+ (available in three colors).

2.

An Oculus Quest 2 head strap because one problem that wasn’t solved with the newest Quest is how uncomfortable the headset can be if you wear it for more than a few hours. This adjustable length strap reduces head pressure, is easy to clean, and can be adjusted to prevent the headset from moving while you’re gaming.

Amazon

Promising review: “Once you get the strap adjusted the transformation of pressure versus comfort is amazing. I’m very impressed by the quality of materials KIWI design uses. The Oculus Quest is so much more comfortable now with this headband strap. I would suggest everyone with a Quest buy this. Such a little investment pays off with huge comfort. This headband in combination with their knuckle straps makes the Quest a much better experience.” —Brett

Get it from Amazon for $13.99.

3.

A pair of ear muffs to make your VR experience more immersive by concentrating and amplifying your in-game sounds. These soft silicone ear covers are also designed to reduce noise leakage so the rest of the family doesn’t have to hear your game.

These fit both the Oculus Quest 1 and 2.

Promising review: “Tested with the Oculus 2 and it greatly increases the volume. They easily slip on and off for easy packing or cleaning. You can test the difference it will make before you order it by just cupping your hand over your ears while wearing your Oculus 2; that’s how much this will increase the level of audio being directed to your ears. I rarely have to turn my audio past the 50% mark with these on. For the price, this is an easy no-brainer.” —William K

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

4.

A pair of Oculus earbuds if that’s more your style. These do the same thing as the muffs but come with custom silicone caps in three different sizes so you can find the fit that’s right for your ears. And the cable is designed to be short enough that it doesn’t get in the way of your gaming.

These are compatible with only the Quest 1.

Promising review: “I wanted to increase my immersion on my stock Oculus Quest and this definitely made it easy without needing to run a long set of standard earbuds. This had great bass and honestly sounded better than the HTC deluxe audio strap mod I have on my other Quest.” —Jay Jay N.

Get it from Amazon for $17.99.

5.

Or a pair of earbuds for the Quest 2 that offer the same 360-degree sound and immersive experience. The in-ear vacuum these earbuds create should block out 94% of unwanted noises.

Promising review: “I really liked the Oculus headphones I bought for my original Quest, although I never was sure they were worth $50. The sound was great and the headphones were comfortable. I was very surprised that these SyncItDeep headphones were every bit as good as those were, but accommodated the single 3.5-mm port on the Quest 2 beautifully. Actually, there’s even an advantage I hadn’t expected: it’s very easy to know which bud goes in the left ear (the short cable) and which one goes in the right! as it turns out the old Quest 1 headphones were ear-specific and I frequently ended up with reversed sound if I got them mixed up, which no longer happens with these. Highly recommended!” —Timothy Tripp

Get it from Amazon for $16.97.

6.

An HTC audio strap that attaches to the back of your Quest so you get the best of both worlds. The headphones with their height and angle adjustments combine the customization of the earbuds *and* the over-the-ear fit of the muffs.


amazon.com

This head strap is designed for the HTC Vive VR system but many reviewers say it works just as well for the Oculus Quest and is an upgrade over the Quest’s stock system. There are lots of videos on YouTube of mods if you decide to go this route.

Promising review: “Excellent addition to my Oculus Quest! The discomfort and pressure points from the face foam is gone, as well as the slipping down my face. Headphones sound great and are simple and comfortable. Check YouTube videos for mods. I used sticky Velcro plus black zip ties for side connections to keep the vive logo visible. Highly recommend. It’s worth it.” —Tyler

Get it from Amazon for $99.99.

7.

A silicone face cover to combat sweat and light leakage while you try to beat the next level of Superhot.


amazon.com

This is for the Quest 1. Try this Quest 2 sweat-proof face cushion if you have the newest version.

Promising review: “I got this because my foam would get ‘soggy’ from intense sessions of Beat Saber. And when friends are over taking turns, this gets gross-feeling fast. With this installed, it is clean with a quick wipe because it isn’t absorbent; the sweat can be wiped away. The only issue I have is the new nose piece area; it does help block light leak, but you also feel it on your nose when you first put it on. It isn’t bad, and after you play for a bit you get used to it/forget about it. But it is still ‘different’ — but the improved light leak protection is welcomed.” —Tronage

Get it from Amazon for $10.59+ (available in five colors).

9.

A pair of Oculus grip extenders to take Beat Saber to the next level.

The extenders attached to the base of the Quest controllers to make it look like a lightsaber


Amazon

These are compatible only with the Quest 1.

Promising review: “I already had Mamut grips installed, which are a huge improvement over the bare controllers, and also help to overcome the battery opening problem with the touch controllers, but I thought I would give these a try as I play Beat Saber with my Quest often. They totally transform the game and finally feel like real saber handles, with the light blade at the correct angle in the game! They fit extremely securely with practically zero chance of coming off, and should work equally well with both Quest and Rift touch controllers. The design also allows for pretty rapid removal and reinstallation of my Mamut grips when playing something other than Beat Saber. Highly recommended for anyone playing Beat Saber in a regular basis.” —P. Couling

Get it from Amazon for $27.99.

10.

A pair of knuckle straps if you’ve experienced the fear of accidentally tossing your Quest controller and hoping that nothing was broken when you removed your headset. These wrap around your wrist *and* your knuckles to keep your controller securely in your hand.

Promising review: “These affordable and comfortable wrist straps are perfect. They allow you to let go of the controller at your leisure, kind of like the index controllers, and not drop the touch controllers. I highly recommend them to anyone.” —Virtual Robots Revolt

Get them from Amazon for $14.99.

11.

An Oculus 2 grip sleeve for gamers with sweaty hands. The texture of the silicone shell makes for a better grip, and the grooves allow for airflow so moisture is wicked away.

Amazon

These are designed for the Quest 2 but reviewers say they also work for the Quest 1.

Promising review: “These grips for the Oculus Quest and Rift S are a must-buy! I have tried cheaper silicone/rubber versions and did not have a good experience. However, with the AMVR Touch controller grips, I can play comfortably without being annoyed at the short length of the handle on the Touch controller and have the bonus ability to open and shut my hand at will. This should be your first purchase after getting an Oculus Quest or Rift S, especially if you have large hands like myself. I can’t imagine playing fast-paced games like Robo Recall, Creed, Beat Saber, etc., without these again. It’s a very quick experience placing these on with the provided Velcro straps. There are competitors out there with similar options, but it’s no question that this is the best I’ve seen thus far for the money and overall experience.” —Virtual Robots Revolt

Get it from Amazon for $24.99.

12.

A pair of bumper protectors so you have peace of mind that your controllers won’t crack if (more like when knowing how clumsy you are) you drop them.

PeanutPrinters / Etsy

PeanutPrinters is a small business making 3D printed Quest controller bumpers. You can check out a test video of the bumpers in action here.

Promising review: “I didn’t think I needed ring protectors. I already have AMVR hand grips. However, The first time my wife played Beat Saber she whacked the table, the TV, a picture frame. So I figured these were necessary. They came very fast. I’m really impressed. They fit absolutely perfect. Easy to get on and don’t slip. Pretty nice finish. I love the design. After a couple hours of playing, flailing my hands all over in Windlands, my controllers had absolutely no tracking issues at all. And the bumpers didn’t budge. They fit no problem with my AMVR hand grips too.” —Brian

Get them from PeanutPrinters on Etsy for $25.65 (available in 11 color combinations and also for the Oculus Quest 2).

13.

A lens cover that’ll protect your Quest from dust and scratches when you’re not using it. Sometimes you don’t want to fuss with packing it back into its case but want to know it’s taken care of in case of an accident.

Amazon

This is for the Quest 2 but reviewer say it works for the Quest 1 too.

Promising review: “If you store your Quest anywhere there could be sunlight (any room), this is a must have to avoid sun damage through the lenses. The cover doesn’t scratch and it’s an overall good product with a fair price.” —Amy Backus

Get it from Amazon for $8.90+ (also available in white).

14.

Some anti-scratch protective rings because you can’t play without your glasses but you don’t want them to scratch the Quest’s lenses. You get 12 rings in varying heights that’ll create enough space between your glasses and the VR lens so they don’t come in contact.

amazon.com

Promising review: “Got this because, although my husband and I don’t wear glasses, we noticed some slight scratches after we let one of my friends try on our Oculus Quest and didn’t realize her glasses would make contact with the lenses. Installation was very easy: popped out the original hard protective eye pieces and then placed a black silicon/rubber piece on their included protective eye pieces. I love how much thicker the eye covering is! I don’t think we will be too worried to have friends over now. This is a very easy, cheap way to protect your precious Oculus 🙂” —Bangkok Thai

Get it from Amazon for $19.99.

15.

Or a pair of prescription lens adapters to basically replace your glasses. You’ll be able to see the screen clearly *and* you won’t have to worry about your glasses scratching the screen…because you’re not even wearing them. You love to ~see~ it!

A universal battery pack because your gaming session shouldn’t be interrupted by that dreaded low battery message. This battery holder is designed to fit most USB power banks, and reviewers say it’s actually a great counterweight and makes the Quest more comfortable.

Promising review: “It’s good. Simple and good. My battery is secure and you can hardly tell it’s there when worn. You do need to loosen the straps to take the battery out, so I don’t. I charge it right on the Quest. Which is fine. I would buy it again if I needed to.” —Todd

Get it from Amazon for $22.95.

21.

Or a power bank organizer to organize the cable you’ll need to run between your external battery and your headset. This kit comes with a belt clip so you can hook your power bank to your pants, as well as a side clip that ensures the cable isn’t in your way and a distraction while gaming.

Promising review: “Color me impressed! I was looking for a good way to keep from getting tangled whilst amidst the virtual worlds and what not. I have to say the quality certainly is there. The actual cable holders do a great job of supporting the cable without resistance when you move around. Something else I do greatly appreciate is the inclusion of multiple mounting options instead of just sticking you with cheap adhesive hooks. This instruction are good as well. They do a great job of explaining everything you need to know. I can not recommend these highly enough! A must-buy for sure!” —Jack Ryder

Get it from Amazon for $29.99 (also available in white).

Amazon

Promising review:This is a great stand for my headset and controllers!! My biggest fear with stands is how close they get to the lenses. I’ve heard of other stands having damaged lenses, but this one leaves a good 1.5 inch gap from the lenses, and that’s with the thinner leather face mask insert and not the original, thicker foam mask!! I don’t have to undo any of my straps. Super easy to set up and not top heavy. Wish it had a cable wrap but not a big deal. Highly recommend!!” —Angelica Medina

Get it from Amazon for $33.99.
