Oculus Quest 2
The Oculus Quest 2 improves on the original in every way: It has sharper screens, a more comfortable fit and it’s far more powerful. It’s a superior standalone VR headset, but it’s also good enough to compete with more expensive competitors when connected to a gaming PC. It’s truly the most flexible VR headset on the market.

The Quest 2, like the Quest, is an escape ticket to magic worlds. It's also a fantastic little machine for playing Beat Saber.TechCrunch90Facebook’s Oculus Quest 2 is outstandingIt’s a fantastic VR device, but the question I’ve struggled with is whether a fantastic headset is still a great gadget. It’s still largely for gamers and will still fall danger to getting mainstream users excited for a few weeks and then spending the rest of its life in the closet.PC Mag90The best VR experience $300 can buyThe Oculus Quest 2 improves on nearly everything from the original at a more affordable price, making it the best $300 VR headset for newbies and experienced users alike.Wired90The Quest 2 is a virtually flawless improvement on the originalThe Quest 2 is the best Oculus headset by far. At about $300 when it hits shelves October 13 (you can preorder it), with top-notch tethered and untethered VR capabilities, the Oculus Quest 2 delivers on the promise of VR in ways other headsets never have, and that’s exciting for the future.TechRadar90Oculus Quest 2 offers small changes that make big differencesLightweight, comfortable, and powerful enough to run impressively detailed virtual reality experiences, the Oculus Quest 2 is the best VR headset that Oculus has made so far. And, depending on your perspective on raw power versus portability and comfort, it might just be the best VR headset ever, too.Input90This just puts all other VR headsets to shameThe Quest 2 is the MOST COMPLETE and uncomplicated VR headset money can buy.IGN90Higher specs, lower price tagThe Quest 2 improves over its predecessor in a lot of little ways, with a few small drawbacks like the enlarged controllers and cheaper strap. But its wireless nature, ease of use, and accessible price still make it a killer VR headset.T380Virtual reality might finally be ready for the big timeThe Oculus Quest 2 improves on its predecessor in significant ways, providing a standalone virtual reality experience that really impresses in terms of performance and price. It's not quite a perfect VR headset, but it's clearly one of the best ones yet.The Verge80BETTER, CHEAPER VRThe Quest 2 is the first headset I can reasonably recommend for a wide audience. Facebook’s VR head start is growing, and the coming year could set industry expectations for privacy, developer autonomy, and basic consumer-friendliness. This may not be VR’s mass-market moment, but it’s the moment to start seriously thinking about how that world might work.Game Informer90The Future Of VRIf you’re in the market for a VR headset, the Quest 2 would be a smart choice. The device is sleek and it offers some of the cleanest visuals of any headset on the market. Sadly, there aren’t a lot of new games that take advantage of the Quest 2’s more powerful hardware, but this system makes every game already inside the Quest portfolio look better than ever. The virtual reality market continues to grow but hasn’t exploded as fast as some of us had hoped. I wouldn’t be surprised if that started to change with the Quest 2.
