Something that I’ve always thought about getting, but never pulled the trigger on, is a better head strap for the Meta Quest 2. Sure, I thought, it might be nice, but the official one serves its purpose! Well, then I was offered the ZyberVR Elite Battery Head Strap For Quest 2, and I figured that I would give it a try. After all, my wife had recently bought a battery pack for the headset, so some more battery could only be a good thing!
The unit (once assembled) is pretty sturdy and well put together. It attached to the Quest 2 simply, and it’s easy to remove should you want to.
The first thing you have to do is assemble the Battery Head Strap, which is where I actually ran into an issue. The instructions weren’t super clear, so I was convinced that I’d managed to connect it upside down, and could find no way to detach it to try again. Luckily, it was just me reading the instructions wrong, and I’d managed to attach it correctly.
Wearing the Quest 2 with the unit attached is comfortable, and it’s fully adjustable thanks to a wheel. It defaults to its smallest setting, so multiple users can benefit from it without the hassle of someone leaving it at the wrong size.
You can leave the ZyberVR Elite Battery Head Strap plugged in at all times, and just charge it instead of the Quest 2 itself. You just press the button on the back, and it will begin charging the headset. Although I’ve noticed that the battery level never quite says that it’s at 100% it’s not caused an issue for me. I’ve been able to play for longer than a normal session when I’ve needed to, and even when the headset is at low battery the ZyberVR Elite Battery Head Strap will charge so you can keep playing. One time I had the low battery warning for below 15%, then after hitting the button I had the warning again when the battery went back up to 15%, and upon checking a while later it was up to 17%!
One feature that I really like is that you can lift the headset off of your face while the head strap remains in place. It might not be suitable for an extended time, but for a few minutes to talk to someone it definitely saves you from taking the whole thing off. An added bonus is that the whole thing fits in the official carry case while connected.
The ZyberVR Elite Battery Head Strap For Quest 2 is a great bit of kit, and really easy to use. I was worried that the cable which connects with the headset was too baggy, but it hasn’t gotten in my way yet! If you’re in the market for a battery pack and don’t have a head strap, I highly recommend this.
