VR users: what headset are you using?

I began with the Oculus Rift, then regretfully upgrade to the Rift S. What headset are you using? Would you recommend it?

Currently using the Quest 2, and I'm loving it! Not using wires has been much better with the wires. I've used the Rift S and the Quest 2, and I much prefer the Quest 2.

Vive Pro with wireless add on, and Index controllers. Wireless is a huge game changer, and I highly recommend it.

I've got a Vive Cosmos. While I like the headset for most VR gaming, the FoV and sweet spot are too narrow. The need to turn my head to see the periphery for sim racing bothers me and I just bought a G9 monitor. Much happier with the G9. While the immersion was great with the Cosmos, I'm faster and a cleaner racer with the G9. And I can grab my beer without spilling it!

Still there's nothing like the Laguna Seca corkscrew in VR (except real life of course) and I'll still use the headset for non competitive lapping for that experience.

Quest 2 both in stand alone games and steam VR wireless. Was going to get the G2 but the Quest was a better compromise considering my family likes to play games as well.

I've got a Valve Index w controllers for "stand up" games. Love it.

I've got a Pimax 5k for racing games. The field of view os a massive improvement for racing games, but the headset itself and the software could be better quality.

I've tried a first gene oculus, a PSVR, and a first gen Vive. The Index is the best one I've tried and it's controllers are much better than any other I tried. That said, the latest from Oculus and Vive are apparently really good.

I'm using wireless, but for a few games I want to play, I plug into my pc.

I`ve read somewhere you can use virtual desktop or some such thing to play pcvr wirelessly - Need a strong wifi as you`d expect.

Didn`t look fully into it as decided to stick with the Rift S for now

Started with Oculus Rift, currently using a Quest 2 - an excellent headset.

I've also used the Quest 1 which works quite well teathered, standalone the processing power is too low. Also used a Vive Pro with wireless which works fine but the signal is not alway 100% when you're using it room scale.

I prefer the Quest 2 for easy of use plus it's suprisingly capable standalone.

why do you regret getting the Rift S? This is what I have and I like it but have nothing to compare to since I haven't tried any other VR. I also don't understand wire vs wireless. I don't even notice the wire. If I was standing up and playing some other game I can see the wire being a problem but sitting in the cockpit I dont notice it is there.

Yeah, seated games, wired is no problem. Try walking up a spiral staircase in SkyrimVR with a wired headset, though.

Rift S has a more narrow field of view than the previous Rift. And the speakers on the Rift S are pretty bad. Currently my Rift S is not working – I’m getting an error that the “sensors cannot be recognized”. Multiple back-and-forth with Oculus Support and they’re telling me to ”be patient and wait for a software update”. Very frustrating.

Good luck with that, Rift S from what i know is a thing of the past, I own one lol, thankfully its working fine so far, but oculus has made it pretty clear that its focus is on the next gen quest, no more rift anything.

I've owned the original Rift, then the Rift S, and now I have the HP Reverb G2.
Not great FOV, but phenomenal resolution! I use mostly seated sim games (DCS, FlightSimulator 2020, Project Cars 2, etc.) so don't really need the controllers which lack behind Rift & Vive in terms of tracking.
