HTC tried to set a benchmark when it came out with the HTC Vive ahead of its competitors. But while that should leave a mark, included was the discomfort that came along with it. Now, HTC is hoping that a new ergonomic audio strap can waylay that problem.
Take note that the basic head strap of the HTC Vive works fine. But knowing how folks place a premium on comfort, the VR headset has disappointed some compared to rival brand offerings like the Oculus Rift. Aware of that angle, the new Deluxe Audio Strap hopes to alleviate those issues, an ergonomic head mount scheduled to come out on June 6, according to Engadget.
To understand what the celebrated Deluxe Audio Strap is, it is an ergonomic cradle that allows users to make adjustments easily depending on the size of the head of a user, Pocket-Lint reports. It is described as a combination of the Oculus Rift and the PlayStation VR headset rolled into one.
Aside from that adjustability, it also comes with integrated headphones which should further pamper players into gaming and media entertainment. Being an add-on however, folks will have to shell out an additional $100 cash for it.
Some may frown on the added cost of the HTC Vive Deluxe Audio strap though the company considering the inferior nature of the basic VR headset. While the offer seems to target the business users, some private individuals could consider the add-on to hopefully get the quality audio and visual compliment for games and videos most are raving out to date.
The Deluxe Audio strap is already available in the US market and there is another one expected to follow later in the year. This is the Vive Tracker, a small gadget designed to convert any real world object to an actual controller for games. Like the audio strap, that means added cost as well for the add-on which has yet to get a release date.
