On its own, there is no need for a PC, smartphones, external cabling or external sensors. Generally, it offers you all that you need to get started in VR.

However, that doesn’t mean there aren’t other ways of enhancing the Virtual Reality experience through some extra accessories and add-ons. There are plenty of Quest 2 accessories that you can use to go the extra mile with your Quest 2 headset.

Many users have put the Elite Strap in their required Quest 2 accessories list.

You can easily remove the existing strap by removing the headset’s foam face-lining and two side fittings. Once done, replace it with this elite alternative.

The Elite Strap has a hard lining to better handle the Quest 2’s weight. It also has a dial at the back that can be turned for a tighter fit on your head. It makes fitting the Quest 2 to your head a much more accessible experience. Turning back the dial lengthens the strap to easily fit over any head. You can then twist it back in until you find the right fit for yourself.

The 2016 Oculus Rift was the first modern VR headset to ship with integrated headphones. Quest and Rift S, like Quest 2, deliver audio through vents in the side straps, but this can’t match the immersion of actual headphones.
