Here’s a look at some of the best Meta Quest 2 accessories we’ve found,
including eye-pad covers, controller grips, upgraded head straps and much more.
The Meta Quest 2, formerly known as the Oculus Quest 2 prior to Facebook’s rebrand,
is a stand-alone system that has brought virtual realty closer to the mainstream than ever before. its available starting at a reasonable $299 for the 128GB model, and consists of a headset and a pair of controllers.
Those are the only basic pieces you need to jump into the world of VR,
but there is a whole ecosystem of accessories out there designed to enhance your VR experience,
protect your equipment and make you feel more comfortable while playing.
With all that in mind, here’s a look at some of the top Quest 2 accessories out there.
Most I’ve tried myself, including the Quest 2 Elite Strap, various carrying cases, a VR mat, prescription lenses, sweat mask, weighted gloves, external battery packs and a generic version of the Oculus Link VR cable.
But a few selections are highly rated by buyers online. I’ll be adding more Quest 2 accessories and will update this list as I try them out.
Nufr Shell Front Face Protector
If you’re looking for a little protection for the Quest 2 head unit (yes, people have been known to drop them), a face cover will help. The Nufr comes in various colors for around $16, with the price varying slightly by color.
Esimen K3 Accessories Set
When I was looking to upgrade to an “elite” head strap for my virtual reality experience, I didn’t necessarily want to spend $50 for the official Elite Head Strap. I was looking for a Quest accessory bundle that combined accessories and found this one from Esimen, which includes a nice carrying case. So far, after a month of use, everything is holding up well. That said, both the Elite Head Strap and official Quest 2 Carrying Case have a more premium look and feel to them
Quest 2 Elite Strap
If you’re looking for a more comfortable gaming experience, upgrading to an “elite” strap is the way to go. I initially bought that knockoff Esimen accessories bundle. That’s all been fine, but I will say the official elite strap version is superior (it’s not twice as good but it’s a bit of an upgrade over the elite strap knockoff I bought). You just have to pay a premium for it.
