If you're wanting to take your VR game to the next level with the best Oculus Quest 2 accessories to go alongside your new headset, then we've got you covered right here.
The world of VR is expanding at a rapid rate and Oculus (or Meta) is still up there with the very best VR headsets in the world. But the headset is just the beginning, and there are loads of accessories well worth considering if you want to breathe new life into some of the best games for Oculus Quest 2.
Key things to consider picking up are items like controller grips and straps in order to make the VR experience as comfortable as possible, VR dedicated earphones so you can immerse yourself deeper into virtual worlds, and more.
So let's get to it. Here are what we think are some of the best accessories for the Quest 2.
Best Oculus Quest 2 Accessories
- Logitech G333 VR Earphones
- Oculus Elite Strap
- VR Mat - ProxiMat
- VR Cover Controller Grips
- Anker Charging Dock for Oculus Quest 2
Best Oculus Quest 2 Earphones - Logitech G333 VR Earphones
What you'll find first and foremost is a small yet comfortable form factor with three interchangeable ear tips which should allow these earphones to be comfortable to wear for a decent period of time.
Two dynamic drivers also mean there'll be some rather balanced audio with some nice emphasis on the mids and highs ensuring a crisp sound profile that will allow for good immersion in-game.
The G333's connection is also nicely convenient with them utilising a 3.5mm output into the Quest 2's headphone jack, and once you've plugged them in, it's a case of turning the headset on and these should be picked up and work absolutely fine in all manner of games.
Unfortunately, as the Quest 2 doesn't have full native Bluetooth support, you can't easily connect wireless headsets, but for a pair of wired earbuds to make you even more immersed in your game, these look like a grand choice.
Best Oculus Quest 2 Headset Strap - Oculus Elite Strap
If you're looking to make your VR experience that little bit more comfortable, then getting a new strap for your Quest 2 looks like a good investment to make, and luckily the official Oculus Elite Strap is one of the best out there.
Removing your current strap from the Quest 2 and installing this is as easy as popping the old out one and adding this new one by clipping it into place, which is rather handy.
What you'll find is that this strap should provide a lot more support than the standard one, especially around the back of your head, and there are plenty of adjustable points present so you can make it fit you best.
The Elite Strap also features an additional battery within it that doubles the battery life of the headset, and it's also possible to recharge both the headset's internal battery and the one present in the strap at the same time, which we think is rather cool.
Best Oculus Quest 2 Accessories - VR Mat ProxiMat
If you've ever found yourself hurtling into a wall while expertly avoiding an incoming attack on Resident Evil 4 VR, then you'll want to invest in one of these VR mats.
The ProxiMat serves to minimise accidents by giving you a super soft, tactile reference point so you can keep track of where you are in the real world.
It's a great addition to give you some confidence when playing yourself, but also one that could come in handy when those new to VR take it for a test drive.
Best Oculus Quest 2 Hand Straps - VR Cover Controller Grips
If you're also looking to make sure holding your controllers is going to be as comfortable as it can be and also increase your grip on them, we'd suggest picking up these VR Cover Controller Grips.
They come in two different colours and feature a non-slip rubberised coating that will mean the controllers will be rather comfortable to hold indeed. In addition, this also makes them feel grippy in hand.
There are also some handy straps bundled in with the VR Cover Controller Grips they can be attached to the controller to improve your grasp on the controllers, as exemplified by the soft knuckle strap that sits round back.
If you do need to adjust anything then these grips come with plenty of options for all hand sides to make sure that every player can be as comfortable as possible with using their Quest 2.
Best Oculus Quest 2 Charging Dock - Anker Charging Dock for Oculus Quest 2
The Anker Charging Dock for Oculus Quest 2 is one of the best charging dock accessories available for the headset and it's officially licensed, which is rather nice to know.
What this will allow you to do is charge your Quest 2 headset and controllers in one convenient manner by simply placing them into the dock and plugging the dock into a USB-C outlet via the bundled cable.
The controllers are recharged via rechargeable cells included with the Anker Charging Dock that should be able to last for a good couple of months before needing to be charged back up.
Handily, it also won't take too long for everything to be charged back up to 100% with a total charge time of 2.5 hours meaning you'll be back up and running in no time.
Best Oculus Quest 2 Cable - Oculus Link Cable
What this should provide is a zero-latency connection between your PC and Quest 2 through a fibre-optic cable that allows you to utilise Oculus Rift apps, and also allow you to play Steam games on your Quest 2 including Half-Life: Alyx and Blade & Sorcery, with all its amazing mods.
The Oculus Link Cable is also 5 metres long, giving you plenty of distance to use it in whatever space you have, which is rather handy indeed.
Just make sure that your gaming PC is powerful enough to run VR and meets the min specs, and then you should be good to go.
So, there you have it, that's our top picks for the best accessories for the Quest 2, and be sure to stick around for our other VR news, info and guides, especially with what looks to be a bumper year with headsets like Meta Quest 3 and PSVR 2 on the horizon.
