I had not had the chance to get back to this thread and I see there has been lots of really good info posted.
I did get a chance to try out a friends Quest 2. I have the questionable fortune of having an unusually large head. I cannot go to the store to buy a hat, they don't fit! It was definitely snug on my head. I have seen statements about there being other straps available, could that fix this problem?
As for the sound quality, I have a very good set of Bluetooth earbuds. Would that work, or might I experience latency/sync issues?
I see ok without glasses, but am better off with them. Does one system work better than others for this? Or better yet, have adjustable focus for each eye built in like binoculars do?
There was an issue with some of the games requiring a person to be standing while playing them. I have MS, I can stand for very short periods of time. There was a seated point of view option for at least one game. Is this something that can be configured in all games?
I was not hugely impressed with the image quality or the wideness of the field of view. What is better in that respect? I am using a large screen 4K monitor. The 60hz refresh has never bothered me. I have found that the resolution of the image is much more important to me than the frame rate. I guess it's just a personal taste thing.
thanks for all the help so far!
You can play pretty much any game seated, though some you will have the perspective of only being that tall. Others give you the option of setting height in-game. Most work well with glasses provided you don't have large frames, and there are available replacement lenses for some headsets that are prescription strength. There are multiple head straps available for the Quest 2, a quick google search should find what you're looking for.
Wider FOV headsets are the Valve Index and the Pimax line along with the Vive Pro 2. If you're after wide FOV (~180-200 deg) and high res, the Pimax 8k/8kx are the best in that range, you'd have to check those forums for info on glasses/large head fitment. Index is less FOV (~125) and res, Vive Pro 2 has high res but even less FOV (~115). For reference, the Quest 2 usually measures 95-105 deg. IMO, having tried an Index and my Odyssey+ measuring around 110-115 with the facial interface removed so it almost touches my eyelashes, over 120 has diminishing returns, but everyone has different preferences.
