When Facebook launched the Oculus Quest 2 latest year you could upgrade your virtual reality (VR) experience with a range of accessories such as Oculus’ Elite Strap or VR Cover’s range of facial interfaces. Logitech also came up with its own product line with the G333 VR Gaming Earphones and G PRO Gaming Headset. But these were only available in the US. Until now of course, with UK Oculus Quest 2 owners now available to purchase them.
Because both products have been designed to easily integrate with the standalone headset they both feature custom shorten cables so you get premium sound without the hassle of normal headphones cables getting in the way. And thanks to Facebook partnering with Logitech, they’re both Certified Oculus Ready.
The Logitech G333 VR Gaming Earphones feature dual dedicated audio drivers, one for highs and mids, and one for bass, contained within aluminium housing and connected by flat cables to ensure they don’t twist. In the box you also get small, medium and large ear tips and three velcro straps to hold the cable in place.
As for the over-ear G PRO Gaming Headset it has the same core audio technology and build quality the original PRO has – 50mm drivers, passive noise isolation – just with that shorter cable. Customers will also find in the box a detachable mic with full pop-filter, a cable with inline volume and mute; a PC splitter for separate mic and headphone jacks, and a USB external sound card.
“The teams at Oculus and Logitech G share the same passion for gaming and the same ambition to push innovation, design and technology to new heights. We are proud to be partnering with Oculus to deliver a next-gen Oculus Ready VR audio experience,” Vadim Kogan, head of business development for VR and AR at Logitech in a statement. “The Logitech G333 VR Gaming Earphones and the PRO Gaming Headset have both been thoughtfully designed to support VR set up and to provide the most immersive and refined audio experience possible.”
That’s not all Logitech is getting involved with VR wise. As part of Oculus Quest’s v28 update, you’ll be able to see the Logitech K830 in VR, making typing much easier. Although, at the moment it’s not a UK product.
