Now that Apple has announced its AR/VR headset, the Vision Pro, VR is once again in the limelight. The Meta Quest 2 is the current leader among the best VR headsets that don’t require a PC to run — though the PSVR 2 has emerged as competition and the Meta Quest 3 has been announced — but it does have issues (not least a price hike).
My biggest gripe is the Quest 2’s head strap. It’s aggressively average, which means it can and should be replaced with something more pleasant to use for long periods of time.
What is the best Meta Quest 2 head strap?
I really like the GeekVR battery head strap right now. It is extremely comfortable, even for long gaming sessions, and it uses hot-swappable batteries to keep your gaming going as long as you like. In fact, it is so easy to swap the batteries you can do it while the headset is still on.
The best head straps have plenty of support around the back of your head, and firm fittings to the front. In order to test out these Quest 2 head straps, I spent a lot of time playing in VR. Playing games for a living is not easy, but I endure it for you. Here’s a list of my favorites.
