The Oculus Quest 2 is an all round solid piece of hardware and it’s a very popular holiday gift as there are some great deals on it right now.

The fabric belt that comes in the box is not supportive, and while the $50 Elite Elite Band deal with that, it’s quite fragile.

A popular and clever modification you can make to your headset is to attach HTC’s Deluxe Audio strap (originally made for the Vive) with a set of third-party adapters to make it a perfect fit with your Oculus headset. Once everything is set up you should have a much more comfortable headset, and the strap’s built-in headphones are a serious upgrade over the Quest 2’s built-in speakers. I’m thinking of trying this myself.

Of course, the reason I’m writing about this now is because these accessories are cheaper for Black Friday. HTC’s Deluxe Audio strap usually costs $100, but it’s dropped to $69 at Amazon (this may seem like a lot, but remember, they’re both a solid belt) and headphones in one). Pair it with this required $22 . adapter kit, and you’ve created a durable solution for your Quest 2.
