Facebook

If you have worn the original Oculus Quest, you probably know that it is one of the best VR experiences money can buy; Fully wireless, great visuals, and even controller-free hand-tracking mode, and you are waiting with bated breath for new quests. If you are brand new to VR and Quest 2 will be your first VR experience, you are in for a treat. Shaping better (on paper, at least) than Quest in almost every way – and cheaper to boot – Quest 2 is probably going to be the new gold standard in VR. And you can preorder it now.

The new quest’s list of enhancements and upgrades reads like VR Addict’s wish list. And the first is, perhaps, better resolution. Now with about 2K per eye, the headset has nearly twice the resolution of the original headset and should go a long way towards reducing the dangerous “screen door” effect. It has a faster processor, is about 10% lighter, and has even reported more relaxed wear thanks to a redesigned strap. Want to learn more? Read CNET’s Scott Stein’s Deep Dive in New Quest 2.
