Go virtual with the new Oculus Quest 2 Virtual Reality Headset

Are you a fan of virtual reality? Perhaps you haven’t even experienced it yet? If not, you don’t know what you’re missing! The new Oculus Quest 2 Virtual Reality Headset is the latest in VR technology, offering premium features and incredible quality. It’s the most advanced all-in-one VR system available, and you don’t even need a PC or console to use it. The newest model features 128GB of storage (replacing the 64GB model), ample room for a huge selection of content. Oculus Quest 2 also now includes a silicone cover for the foam facial interface to ensure you have a comfortable VR experience.

(Note: current owners of an Oculus Quest 2 can request a free silicone cover at this link on the Oculus website).

With the Oculus Quest 2, you’ll play awe-inspiring games, experience numerous unique adventures, and explore the virtual world with unparalleled freedom. You’ll even enjoy exclusive events like front row seats to live concerts and cool features like remote casting and meeting virtually with your real life friends. 

And every detail of the journey has been engineered to make the virtual world adapt to your movements with lightning fast speed and next level graphics, while its redesigned touch controllers transfer your gestures seamlessly to the virtual realm. The Oculus Quest 2 opens the door for a world of adventure you never thought possible.

 

Next level VR hardware

The Oculus Quest 2 offers the latest in VR technology and features an enormous amount of built-in computing power. This includes a lightning fast processor, 3D cinematic sound through its multidirectional speakers, and a premium display with amazing resolution. In fact, the Quest 2 has 50% more pixels than the original Oculus Quest, so you’ll experience every adventure in stunning detail and crystal clarity.

But the Oculus Quest 2 isn’t merely powerful. It’s also lightweight and always incredibly comfortable to wear (and now includes a silicone cover for the Oculus Quest 2’s facial interface). And, it uses Bluetooth technology to communicate between the headset and the touch controllers. In fact, the Quest 2’s controllers have been newly redesigned for a greater level of control. You’ll blast, slash, and groove your way through incredible worlds and unparalleled adventures with their enhanced ergonomic design, and your every movement will be directly, instantly, and intuitively transported into the realm of virtual reality.

All-in-one gaming

With the Oculus Quest 2, you’ll also enjoy a vast and ever expanding library of unique games and experiences. And, since the Quest 2 is PC VR compatible, you’ll be able to access great Oculus Rift titles as well. Simply connect your Quest 2 via an Oculus Link Cable or Insignia Oculus Quest VR cable to a compatible gaming PC. You’ll need to acquire a Link cable separately and ensure that your computer meets the Oculus compatibility requirements first, but even the enhanced features of the Oculus Quest 2 are easy to set up and use. To check out the full Oculus game catalogue visit the Quest Store.

Of course, no PC or gaming console of any kind is required to use the Quest 2. All you really need is the device itself, a Facebook account, wireless Internet access, and the free to download smart phone app—that’s it! The Oculus Quest 2 makes experiencing virtual reality a pleasure. It simply couldn’t be easier to step into a virtual world!

Introducing a whole new fitness solution: Supernatural

Virtual reality is a total immersion environment and VR fitness solutions on the Oculus Quest 2 transport to a whole new world of healthy movement. Leading the way is the VR app Supernatural: a paid membership service exclusively on Oculus than includes curated workout, and real human coaching—all set to contemporary music.

Participate in a workout turned to your level of fitness, with music you love, in a workout environment designed to capture your senses and elevate your motivation. It’s anything but boring! Literally transporting you away to a better, healthier lifestyle, you can select a different exotic location around the world each time you exercise.

Oculus is truly immersive entertainment

The Oculus Quest 2 gives you unprecedented access to the coolest live events. You’ll have the best seat in the house to enjoy live concerts, the latest groundbreaking films, and the most exclusive experiences. You can even get together with friends and take part in multiplayer competitions when you meet up with them in an interactive, virtual world.

And if you wish to briefly step out of the virtual world without breaking free from the experience, the Quest 2 offers a unique feature called headset casting that allows you to display everything you can see in the headset directly to either the Oculus app on your phone or a compatible TV screen. Imagine being able to share a virtual experience with family or friends that don’t have a headset of their own but are in the same room as you. Well, now you can with the amazing new Oculus Quest 2!

    • It does play sound. It plays sound out of the closest strap to each ear. Or if you have Bluetooth earbuds/ headphone or just wired audio, you can plug it into the Quest itself. I have a Quest 2 myself and i think the audio is great. I hope this answered your question!

  1. what is the difference using the oculus quest vr heahset for watching movies and rock concerts compared to watching on pc srceen

  2. I had an early Oculus Rift developers unit and was excited by the potential of VR. I’d love to try the cable-less version and to see how the tech has evolved. I would use it for gaming, Covid virtual travel and to share with my grandkids.

  3. definitely hooking this up to my pc and taking full advantage of the oculus link feature which just came out of beta to play some desktop vr games.

  4. Wireless technology and 6dof are key to VR in my opinion, that’s what I love about the Oculus quest 2! I’ll be using it for gaming and movie 50/50

    • Love that its wireless and needs to be hooked up facebook to join friends in VR worlds. I would play games and watch video, but tbh i have no idea what this thing is capable of. I tried a $20 one b4 years ago, and thought it was cool. Ill be floored if I won this. #fact

    • It does. The Quest 2 comes with the Quest 2, adapter, charging cable, a little booklet stating the Health and Safety warnings, another booklet helping you use the device, and a glasses spacer. Hope this answered your question!

    • Hi Tricia,

      No, the Oculus Quest 2 is not compatible with Xbox One. It works completely on its own (without the need to be hooked up to any other device) or with a PC when connected via Oculus Link (sold separately). However, it is not supported by any dedicated gaming consoles such as Xbox or PlayStation.

      I’m actually testing out the Oculus Quest 2 right now, and very soon you’ll be able to read and watch my review on the Best Buy Blog with even more details and impressions.

    • To check out the games and prices, download the Oculus app to your smartphone. It’s free and you can see the games available as well as the prices.
