Bionik Reveals Cool New Digital Actuality Equipment for Oculus Quest 2
Bionik is a manufacturer of gaming accessories that aims to provide gamers with high quality PCs, consoles and mobile peripherals at an affordable price. Functional and innovative products are the name of the game, and bionics has set itself the goal of providing solutions to optimize the gaming experience and thus improve comfort and competitive potential. Recently, Bionics announced a new accessory card for the Oculus Quest 2 which seems to be the most popular method of accessing virtual reality content these days due to its portable nature and the likelihood that you will break the bank by purchasing such a bank break, relatively high is low for a virtual reality headset. So what are the new accessories bionics revealed for the Oculus Quest 2 and do they look good?
Face Pad VR
One of the two virtual reality accessories that Bionics will bring out shortly is called “Face Pad VR”. According to Bionics, it’s a must-have for anyone with an Oculus Quest 2 who may be trying to replace their damaged, dirty, or missing face pad. “The face pad is made of soft, absorbent and hypoallergenic materials and is designed for comfort and mobility. The headband has ventilation portals for additional airflow and breathability. This makes Face Pad VR perfect for players who like to train in virtual reality. “I can already tell that this is going to be an extremely popular item considering the standard face pad built into Oculus Quest 2 is terrible. I mean, it’s just awful; it itches, it gets hot, it gets sweaty and all of this happens after just a few minutes of play. Seriously, if you’re looking to get an Oculus Quest 2 (or if you already own one) I would highly recommend finding a replacement face cover, and Bionik’s Face Pad VR seems like the right option! The Face Pad VR is priced at $ 14.99 and comes with a variety of color options, including gray, black, and white. It looks like the Face Pad VR appears to be made of a different material than the standard face cover that comes with the Oculus Quest 2, although I think we won’t really know until more official details pop up online, though If so, then that’s definitely a good sign because I can’t stand the foam material that comes with the stock Oculus Quest 2 face cover.
Next we have the Mantis VR from Bionik. The Mantis VR is “a detachable high fidelity audio system that is designed to fit seamlessly into most VR headsets. Bionik’s update to its Mantis VR headphones is designed to fit comfortably over the ear and deliver clear sound while minimizing excess cables. Mantis VR eliminates the need for bulky headsets and allows for a higher level of immersion when playing virtual reality games. “This is another great option for virtual reality users too, as the standard speakers built into Oculus Quest 2 aren’t exactly the best. Now personally I haven’t had any issues with the Oculus Quest 2 speakers, and I didn’t really feel the need to use other audio devices while using my Quest 2, but those that specifically deal with their in-game speakers audio, then you’ve likely already invested in third-party headphones for the Oculus Quest 2, or you’re looking for an alternative solution. If so, Bionik’s Mantis VR may be exactly what you have been looking for! The Mantis VR headphones are priced at $ 59.99. This is a pretty fair and reasonable price, in my opinion, for an external headphone solution for your virtual reality headset, especially given the Logitech G333 VR gaming earbuds for Quest 2 (which are just earbuds) at $ 50 Mantis VR headphones are pretty sleek, too, and go perfectly with a black headset (if you have a white one it looks a bit strange, but honestly you probably aren’t too worried if you consider I’ll be wearing the headset while you’re using it so you don’t even really have to see it.)
These virtual reality products from Bionik seem like a solid “bang for your buck” and won’t really hurt your wallet in the long run compared to some of the other options on the market right now. I think we’ll just have to wait and see how well the Face Pad VR and Mantis VR accessories hold up when they are eventually released. Both accessories should be available from selected in-store and online retailers this summer.
