Pros and cons

According to our Headband for VR headsets expert
  • Thanks to the sturdy materials, the head strap is more durable and lasts longer.
  • You can adjust the headband to your wishes with the dial, so that it fits perfectly.
  • Because this head strap is more comfortable than the original headband, you can wear the VR headset without bothering pressure points.
  • This head strap doesn't have a built-in battery for the Oculus Quest 2, so the VR headset doesn't have an extended battery life.

    Oculus Quest 2 Essential for the Gamer

    Nick Walraven | 19 October 2020 | In the version: No battery | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Very comfortable
    • fine material
    • Good build quality
    • Easy to adjust
    • Easy to use
    • bit expensive

    TDLR: If you plan to wear the Oculus Quest 2 for extended periods of time during gaming sessions, or if you just don't like the original strap, then this strap is definitely recommended!

    Here my findings of the Elite Strap (without battery) and comparisons with the original strap that comes standard with the Quest 2:

    -- The original strap --
    I found that the original strap that comes standard with the Quest 2 isn't necessarily wrong, it works well enough if you want to use the Quest for a few casual games (or projects). As soon as you want to use the Quest for longer game sessions, or, for example, want to be able to easily pass it on to others during a party, the original strap becomes less successful, the strap does not offer enough counterweight and adjusting the strap can also take some getting used to. The original strap becomes a bit dirty after minimal use, it is a white fabric that discolours at the slightest bit. The original strap is also an elastic band that clamps around your head, so you can also experience pressure on the sides of your head, or, for example, on your ears, because it sometimes rests on them, but this almost always occurs for longer sessions.

    -- The elite strap --
    --- Setup ---
    It is very easy to remove the original strap from the headset: First remove the cover (the cushion that sits against your face) from the Quest, loosen the Velcro and pull through the slot, and then gently on the sides pulling while making a kind of light twisting movement, this will release the sides of the headset. It is then also easy to put the elite strap on: click the sides against the headset, pull the Velcro through the slot and then put the cover back on the headset.

    --- Usage ---
    All you have to do now is slide the elite strap out completely with the rotary knob on the back (or until your head fits in between), then put the VR headset on your head and by turning the same knob it tightly against your head, you also have to stick the Velcro in such a way that the headset also rests on the top of your head.
    Finally, you can now slightly "tilt" the headset itself up/down until you find it most comfortable.

    If you want to pass the headset on, all you have to do is extend the strap with the dial and let the other person do the same. This is a lot easier than fiddling with the plastics that are on the back of the original strap, which are used to adjust the strap.

    --- Comfort ---
    The Elite strap is not an elastic band, it is a kind of construction that clamps around the back of the head, because of the shape of the construction it is very comfortable and you will not experience pressure on the sides of the head. It also rests a lot better on the head if you tighten the Velcro on the head well. You also have the feeling that, for example, during a game of Beat Saber, he could never fall off your head, because he is so "snug", this is also because you now have a kind of counterweight at the back of your head, which makes the whole on your head is a lot more balanced.

    --- Build and quality ---
    The material used is some kind of plastic and rubber-like material (it feels that way, I can't find exactly what it is online). It feels very good on the head and the construction of the strap is also very good. Because no fabric has been used on the strap, it will also get dirty a lot less quickly, you can just wipe it with a cloth and it is clean again for use.

    --- Price ---
    Okay, the Elite Strap without battery is not the most expensive when it comes to VR accessories (the Link cable is more expensive!), but when you see that a similar strap was included with the first Quest, you can see that it is not absolutely needed to make this standalone (although the price of the Quest may have gone up slightly). The price is worth it when you see how much more comfort you will experience while using the Quest 2 with this strap.

    -- Conclusion --
    For me the elite strap is a no-brainer, I experienced a lot more comfort while using the elite strap compared to the standard supplied strap. So the comfort is better, the build quality is better and it's a lot nicer to adjust if you want to share it with friends. So highly recommended!

    Keep in mind that everyone's head and use of the Quest 2 is different, this strap will probably fit most (if not everyone), but if you think the original Quest strap is good enough for your head/use I would recommend this before you put down 50 euros for this strap.

    P.S. If you are in doubt between having a battery or not, remember that it is quite possible to connect a simple (cheap) battery bank to the back of the strap and use it as a backup.

    Zoek voor alternatieve headstraps

    Sinaasappel | 28 March 2021 | In the version: No battery

    Ik hou van de Elite Strap. Het zit comfortabel en past beter dan de strap die je er standaard er bij krijgt.

    Maar,

    De kwaliteit van de Elite Strap is niet het geld waard.
    Ik heb van de launch van de Quest 2 tot nu, 2 gebroken Elite Straps. Ik heb ze allebei verzorgd als een baby.

    Het enige pluspunt naast dat het comfortabel is, is de klantenservice van Oculus.
    Als het gebroken is duurt het <10 minuten tot dat je een retour etiket ontvangt in je email.

    Conclusie:
    Koop dit product alleen als je er van houd om telkens je kapotte strap te verzenden.

    useful replacement of the main fabric strap

    Harold Teeuwen | 20 October 2020 | In the version: No battery | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Improves the comfort of the oculus.
    • Easy to customize

    wanted more comfort and that certainly works with the strap.

    Bit pricey, but absolutely no regrets with the purchase!
    • Comfortable
    • Lasts a long time with the extra battery
    • Easy to adjust
    • Doesn't feel heavy on the head
    • Bit on the expensive side

    Although it is a bit on the expensive side, I do enjoy it a lot. It fits very nicely on the head and the built-in battery means that it puts less pressure on the face at the front (I've had both versions on and noticed a lot of difference). All my friends and part of the family all have a Quest 2, of which I am the only one with this headset + battery. When we start a game where they have just charged the headset and eventually indicate that the headset is almost empty, I still have the full 100% and often even a little extra in the built-in battery. So it certainly lasts much longer with extra battery.

    Heavier elite strap, not recognized within 1 month of batter
    • Very comfortable
    • Longer quests!
    • Broken quickly.
    • Dredging quality.
    • Expensive.

    Product is broken within a month.
    I took it very easy and now it is no longer recognized by my quest 2.
    It is now a heavier standard elite strap.
    Can't charge it, nada, nothing.
    The battery is now completely worthless.

    More comfort

    For longer VR sessions, this strap provides more comfort than the original. It fits securely around your head and is easy to adjust via the handy rotary knob on the back. The only drawback I think is the chapter that is at the back of your head. With a bald head, this causes (temporary) ridges on your head after a while.
