HTC Vive Pro 2 Review
When it comes to stats this headset certainly ticks all the right boxes. With its 4896 x 2448 display running at 120 Hz and some of the best quality lenses I have seen on a VR headset so far, it is a joy to use. Sadly that joy doesn’t flow when it comes to comfort and indeed user experience. Not only did it let a lot of light in, but I also found the face padding to be less than ideal. Sure you can replace the foam face padding, but at this price range, you really should have to. While the audio is pretty great it still uses the same crappy microphones its older brother had!
Is The HTC Vive Pro 2 Worth Buying?
It is worth noting that the ‘HTC Vive Pro 2’ price is for the headset only with full kits costing £1,299. That is a very steep price and it’s not like it is all that better than the Oculus Quest when connected to a PC! To add to those issues there really isn’t much upgrade at all and from the outside and only a few minor changes on the inside tech. While there is certainly nothing wrong with this headset the price is going to put most people off buying it and it’s a shame they couldn’t make it even half its current price.
