The powerful and affordable Oculus Quest 2 brings virtual reality as close as ever to the mainstream. Facebook’s VR gaming system has no cables, it is a must for a truly immersive virtual reality experience. While prices start at $ 299 for the 128GB version, it’s pretty bare: VR headsets and two controllers. And while you can play with Oculus Quest 2 as well, there are several adaptations available to take your VR experience to the next level.
Here’s a look at some of the best Oculus Quest 2 accessories out there. They include some that I bought myself, as well as others that are highly appreciated by online buyers. I’ll be adding more Oculus Quest 2 accessories and updating this list as you try them out.

If you’re looking for some protection for the Oculus Quest 2 main unit (yes, people are known to let you down), a head case will help. The Nufri offers a wide variety of colors for about $ 16 and the price varies slightly depending on the color.
When I was trying to upgrade to an “elite” head strap, I didn’t want to spend $ 50 on the official Oculus Elite strap. I was looking for a package that gathered accessories and I got it from that, which includes a nice box. So far, after a month of use, everything stays well.
Another version of this is sold under Masiken Brand on Amazon. It looks the same and costs about the same.
I wanted some more challenge while doing workout games like Thrill of the Fight, Fitness VR, The Climb and The Climb 2, Beat Sabre and many more, so I looked to earn consumable weights. From my research I knew that weighted gloves instead of hand weights are the way to go. Keep in mind that you should continue at your own risk (it could do you wrong), but it certainly increases the intensity of your work.
Each glove only weighs a pound, but this is more than you might think. They adapt perfectly to the interior of the controllers.
Sure you can play with the Oculus 2 while wearing glasses, but without it is more comfortable. This is where a set of prescription lens attachments comes in.
Oculus has partnered with FramesDirect to provide these Rx inserts, with prices starting at $ 80 for VirtuClear inputs. There are other Oculus VR Rx lens accessories, including those from VR and WidmoVR lens Lab, but I have only tested the VirtuClear lenses. They work well and are easy to remove so that someone who does not need glasses can play.
There are many Oculus games designed to make you sweat. So it’s a good idea to get a silicone or faux leather cover that you can easily clean after each play session. I have also purchased this Vokoo package which includes a set of controller handles and a lens cap. (It is important to protect your lenses from sunburn and sunburn.) Everything fits well and works perfectly, so there is no complaint.
This I also have Veer package this front cover protection silicone case for $ 20 is also included. It may actually be a better measure as there is more, but I haven’t tried it.
The Oculus Quest 2 has a couple of excellent table tennis games that are already realistic(I play Twelve table tennis). But if you want to add more, turn the Quiz controller into what looks like a real ping-pong paddle with a filler grip. The weight balance is a little different, but it’s close enough to give you the impression you really have. It is a bit hard, but you have to play if you play a lot of virtual table tennis.

While you can use any wired headset with the Oculus Quest 2, there are a handful of official “Oculus ready” headsets, including the Logitech G Pro gaming headset for Oculus Quest 2. It has a solid look and is comfortable for couples with overorella, with memory foam headphones that passively seal the ambient noise. Get a short cable (with velcro strip) designed for Oculus Quest 2, along with other cable accessories that allow you to use the Oculus Quest headset with your PC and other consoles. The boom microphone is detachable.
I focused a little more on the comfort factor, and if you use them during a VR training game it will increase the head temperature a little bit, but they also sound good.
If you’re looking for a more comfortable gaming experience, upgrading to an elite leash is the way to go. This is the official version of Oculus, but I bought the knockoff accessory pack th. Okay, but if you like the official version … here it is.

If you don’t want to wear full-size headphones while you’re playing, the Logitech G333 headphones are a good alternative. They include a short custom length cable (and velcro strap) designed for Oculus headphones.
The cord from which the right ball comes is longer, so you wear it behind the neck, which will allow you to leave them hanging when the buds are not in the ears. Although they are not too stylish when it comes to headphones, they have a strong cord, feel strong overall and are well designed with the use of Oculus Quest 2. They offer a solid sound if you get a tight seal (yes, including some tips of different sizes).
There are force cheaper headphone options for Oculus Quest 2-they can be found here. However, I did not test them. Some of them don’t seem to be as durable as the Logitech G333.
The Anker loading dock for Oculus Quest 2 is exactly what it looks like. It is a resting place for the main unit and Oculus 2 controllers when not in use and includes rechargeable batteries for the controllers as well as a USB-C cable and a power adapter (plug the cable into the dock).
The dock also includes a USB-C magnetic adapter that connects to the USB-C port of the Oculus headphones. Next, attach the main unit and connect the integrated magnetic charger to the adapter.
I was even able to cut an elite strap to the main unit,but it has any adhesion the controllers may have to cut them.
I haven’t tried this combo of accessories yet, but it gets high scores on Amazon and seems like a good way to connect external batteries (not included) for extended gaming sessions.
There is a magnetic spring zone on the back of the comfort strap. Simply attach the adhesive metal plate to any external battery, and then the battery attaches the comfort strap.
If you’re looking for a lens cap, this Orzero VR lens protective case is one of the most popular options for under $ 10. Personally, I look for accessories that include a lens cap, but only this accessory is necessary for some people.

If you’re looking for an external battery to plug into your headphones for more juice, this 10,000 mAh Aukey is a good choice for less than $ 20. You’ll need a way to put it in the headphones. I made a DIY assembly with an adhesive magnet that I placed on the back of a strap for none elite and then fixed an adhesive plate to the battery. It worked really well. Magnets are your friends to dress. (Like all other Aukey products on Amazon, this one is not currently available there, but you can buy directly from the link below.)
