Arrg, didn't see this until now, I thought pre-orders for this didn't start until May 2nd. Definitely getting one, the strap system on the Vive is pretty crappy.
did you get them?
I did...first impressions...I'm loving them. Sooo much better than the stock straps. The convenience of having headphones built in and the ease of adjustment...makes this a great upgrade.
It's more comfortable and secure. No more loosening straps...even more so if your straps are worn from repeated usage.
Going from my head to another is a much painless and quicker process. This is what the Vive should have shipped with.
$99 is a little on the high side (especially if you just bought a Vive recently), but I don't regret it one bit. I've owned my Vive since it's consumer release.
Congrats! I saw too slow today but I'm definitely getting one of these. A couple of quick questions if I may. There is an integrated microphone correct? Also, if you don't want to use the headphones, I have surround speaks in my office and actually like using them most of the time, is it easy to flip up the headphones so that they are out of the way? Thanks!
I bought mine from newegg with the saver shipping (just moved and haven't set up my vive yet) and its coming tomorrow, so no tax and arrives in 3 days. Perfect
Apparently for some people the foam is starting to rub/flake off. HTC tweeted that they are looking into it.
I have the Vive WITHOUT the new 3-in-1 cable that is now standard. Can I still use this new audio strap? Or should I also order the 3-in-1 cable with it (when, of course, the audio strap is back in stock)?
Why is the new cable better? Is it just that it's lighter in weight?
Appreciate the info. Right now, the old cable doesn't bother me as much as it does to some, so as long as the old cable is workable with the deluxe audio strap, I'll give it a go. Can always change it down the line.It's actually a couple grams heavier. It's flexible in all directions (like having a rope taped to your head instead of a belt) so I find that it gets in the way less. It's not a drastic difference but I think it's worth doing. Unless you plan on getting one of the wireless adapters coming this year, in which case the cable doesn't really matter..
