For ease of transport: single carrying case

Pros:

Cons:

  • Not waterproof

This EVA carrying case is for easy transport and portability. One of the main features of the Quest 2 is its portability as a standalone virtual reality headset. Meaning that this case will make your life much easier when you have to move the headset, while it also can act as a neat storage option.

The only downside is that the case is not waterproof, limiting its use in different weather conditions.

The dimensions are 35.5 cm x 23.5 cm x 14.5 cm and can store the headset, controllers, charger, cable and guides.

For better hygiene: face cover

Pros:

  • Affordable and convenient
  • Easy to use
  • Effective

Cons:

  • One use only

Made from medical-grade fabrics, absorbing sweat and other materials like face lotions. This 100-pack hygiene mask is easy to apply and pivotal at events where multiple people use the same headset for prolonged virtual reality sessions.

Alternatively, you can acquire a leather face cover, such as Orzero VR Lens Protect Cover or the cover set from VRCover. However, these come with the hassle of continually cleaning them after use.

For keeping your Quest 2 clean: Cleaning solutions

Spray Twice a Day

Pros:

  • Easy to use
  • Quick
  • All natural ingredients, ideal for sensitive skin

Cons:

  • No carrying case
  • Could hold more
  • Cumbersome to constantly use during events

When you want your Quest 2’s lens, cover, and headset to be properly cleaned, disinfecting spray is the quickest and most convenient method. SPRAY twice a day does not use alcohol, ammonia, or fragrances. This spray doesn’t dry out your skin and still kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses.

However, using a disinfectant can be cumbersome, especially during large events and conferences.

Disinfection and cleaning cabinet from UVISAN

Pros:

  • Convenient to use: just place the headset in the cabinet
  • Looks professional during events and conferences
  • Quality certified: IEC 62471 and ISO
  • Can be used for other devices than your Quest 2
  • Rechargeable through USB charging dock
  • Secure locking mechanism

Cons:

  • Expensive compared to alternatives
  • Has a 2-minute cleaning cycle

Similar to the spray, the Uvisan Small VR12 kills 99.9% of all bacteria and viruses but does so using UVC light. Furthermore, the spray comes with the inconvenience of manually cleaning your Quest 2 and the masks by manually changing them. With this Uvisan cleaning cabinet, all you need is to place the headset inside and wait 2 minutes.

It is safe and comes with ISO and IEC certifications. However, quality comes at a cost, making it expensive compared to the other solutions.

Alternatively, Uvisan’s cleaning cabinets can be used as storage options.

For displaying your Quest 2: Headset stand

Pros:

  • Minimalist design for displaying your Quest 2 or other headsets
  • Easy to assemble
  • Neat storage option

Cons:

  • Can store/show Quest 2 controllers

The Universal VR headset stand is a simple and minimalist virtual reality headset stand stylishly displaying and storing your Quest 2. Your headset will be safe and secure on the sturdy build, while it comes with a 1-year guarantee. The dimensions are 25 x 24 x 24 cm.

For always having battery life: Charging dock

Pros:

  • Combined stand and charging in one
  • Stylish and good looking
  • Officially compatible with Oculus/Meta Quest 2
  • Anker Provides rechargeable controller batteries

Cons:

  • More expensive than a simple stand

While it is more expensive than the stand above, the Anker Charging Dock displays your Quest 2 and its controllers stylishly while charging them. Additionally, it is fully compatible with the Oculus/Meta Quest 2, as you can purchase it from the Meta store.

Furthermore, the Quest 2 controllers come with non-rechargeable AA batteries. However, the Anker charging dock comes with rechargeable batteries.

For increased comfort: Elite strap

Pros:

  • Provides better back-of-the-head support
  • Can be combined with a power bank for longer battery life
  • Customized fit with a wheel

Cons:

  • Might make your Quest 2 incompatible with your charging dock
  • Expensive compared to alternative strap options

Many Quest 2 wearers have complained about the out-of-the-box strap and how uncomfortable it is. As a result, many replacement options are found around the internet. However, the official Elite Strap from Meta is the best option.

The reason is due to its attached battery pack option, increasing battery life by 2 to 3 hours.

For longer battery life: Compact power bank

Pros:

  • Adds 4 to 6 hours more of battery
  • Makes the Quest 2 more comfortable; acting as a counterweight
  • Conveniently displays battery capacity

Cons:

  • Expensive compared to other options
  • Makes Quest 2 more cumbersome to put on and take off

The VR Power 2 for Oculus Quest 2 developed by Rebuff Reality ups the 2.5 hours of innate runtime of the Quest 2 to 4 to 6 hours total. This power bank option has double the battery capacity compared to the Elite Strap with the battery.

Additionally, the VR Power 2 improves the ergonomics of the Quest 2, providing a counterweight to the headset in the back.

Alternatively, you can look into the BMTick Comfort Strap that comes with a magnetically attached battery.

For no glasses: Prescription lenses

Pros:

  • Easy to attach and remove
  • Tailor-made for your vision
  • Removes the need for wearing glasses with the Quest 2
  • Features an anti-glare coating
  • Virtuclear is partnered with Meta

Cons:

  • Expensive
  • Can only be used for one person
  • Lengthy shipping time

Wearing glasses and a virtual reality headset can quickly get uncomfortable for prolonged hours. Virtuclear RX lens inserts, VR Lens Lab, and WidmoVR address this issue with prescription lens inserts tailored to your vision.

However, the downside is that it can be cumbersome to detach if other people use your Quest 2, while the lengthy shipping time also can be frustrating.

For keeping you within your Quest 2 area: Safety mat

Pros:

  • Material is easy to clean
  • Tactile buttons orienting you in the virtual world
  • Available in different sizes, like a travel size and a fitness shape

Cons:

  • The Quest 2 already addresses the core issue
  • Cumbersome to move or hide when not in use

The innate virtual grid emerging when you near the tracked boundary can rip you out of your immersion. As a result, the SPACE STATION THEO VR mat from ProxiMat delivers tactile feedback, telling if you are close to the edge.

For never letting go of your controllers: Quest 2 controller grip

Pros:

  • Good amount of custom fit
  • Effective for rapid hand movements

Cons:

  • Cumbersome to adjust while holding

Many Quest 2 controller grips are offered, as the stock option is just a strap. The AMVR Touch Controller Grip is excellent for rapid movements, ensuring that you don’t throw your controllers across your room.

Alternatively, the KIWI Quest 2 knuckle grips with sweat resistance and a hidden, nifty extra battery compartment.

For the best sound: Earphones

Pros:

  • Has a low weight
  • Low latency; good for gaming
  • Prevents others from hearing your VR experiences
  • Dual drivers deliver excellent sound quality

Cons:

  • Only compatible with VR headset
  • A bit expensive

The built-in speakers for the Quest 2 are not of the highest quality. As a result, we recommend the Logitech G333 VR gaming earphones to make your sound experience better. The sound quality is great and you can customize the chord length preventing a dangling chord while VR gaming.

They are official to the Quest 2 as Logitech and Meta collaborated in developing these earphones.

If you want professional sound with a better microphone for online play, then we recommend the Logitech G Pro instead.

For more immersive gaming: Controller add-ons

Pros:

  • Creates incredible immersion

Cons:

  • Very niche

Pistol and rifle add-ons

This bundle from CROSSMETA provides you with a pistol and rifle add-on, giving you unparalleled immersion in VR shooters, or simulation training.

However, both add-ons are made of plastic so the weight will not resemble what a metal gun or rifle weighs.

Fishing reel add-on

This fisher reel and 15 cm pole are made by a fellow VR fishing enthusiast on ETSY. They come with high-quality filament, steel screws and bearings, and custom nylon washers. VR fishing is incredibly meditative and with this add-on, immersion is taken up a notch.

Table tennis add-on

The AMVR Table Tennis Paddle Grip Handle is for those that are serious about table tennis gaming. Although the weight distribution doesn’t resemble a table tennis paddle, the handle will feel like you are holding one.
