The Microsoft store in the United States already supports the pre-purchase of the new Vive fastening system, whose shipments would begin on the first Monday in June.
HTC announced in February the price of Deluxe Audio Strap and that its pre-purchase would arrive in May, followed by shipments starting in June. The Microsoft store in the United States seems to have gotten ahead of itself and has begun to accept the pre-purchase of the new fastening system that also includes headphones. As indicated by the store, shipments would be carried out on the day 5 June. It is to be expected that for Europe it will also be the same day, on which the shipments occur, although it is still necessary for HTC to confirm the exact dates and also activate your purchase through the Vive page. The price of Deluxe Audio Strap in the United States is 99 dollars and in Spain 119.99 euros.
Deluxe Audio Strap has been included since April with the Vive Business Edition and offers an improvement in the ergonomics of the HTC virtual reality viewer, in addition to integrating headphones that will make us forget about having to take them off and put them on. You can find out our first impressions about the fastening system in the following article, which we prepared after testing it at the MWC.
