VR Cowl Facial Interface & Foam Alternative for Oculus Quest 2 Overview
Lots of people will be opening brand new Oculus Quest 2 headsets over the coming holiday season. However, the standard foam faceplate that came with the Oculus Quest 2 is just not that comfortable and can get pretty gross after playing active VR games that make you sweat. What better way to compliment the gift of an Oculus Quest 2 than with an incredibly comfortable, hygienic face pad from VR Cover?
After swapping out the Facial Interface and Foam for Quest (our review), the aptly named Facial Interface and Foam Replacement for Quest 2 does exactly what it says on the package. It replaces the thin foam pad that comes pre-installed on the Oculus Quest 2 headset with a slim, flat one that is much more comfortable and much easier to clean.
And this VR cover replacement set, which also includes a nice silicone nose guard that prevents exhaled air from fogging up the lenses, is a compulsive buy for anyone looking to exercise in their Oculus Quest 2 – where sweat can make your headset unsanitary can after a long period of use. Here is the overview.
VR Cover Facial Interface & Foam Replacement for Oculus Quest 2 Review
When you open the VR Cover Facial Interface & Foam Replacement for Oculus Quest 2, you will receive a few things in the packaging. And luckily, this kit comes in a nice rectangular box that fits nicely on the shelf this time, rather than a cheap plastic bag.
Not only do you get the facial interface with passive ventilation, which is a much more comfortable fit than the standard facial interface that comes with the headset, but you also get foam replacement in two sizes: standard and comfort. Cleaning one of the foam covers is as easy as wiping it with an alcohol swab and you’re good to go.
Standard is a bit thinner and less insulated, but Comfort feels like a sofa pillow on your face. I absolutely love the comfort option and would recommend it to anyone. Mainly because this kit is not compatible with the Brac Spacer (for those who need this convenience) and the Comfort Pad is supposed to offer more space anyway.
Again, you get a silicone nose protector that will keep the air you breathe out of the Quest 2 lenses. This solves a problem we had with previous kits from VR Cover after long training and gaming sessions in VR.
In addition, our kit included some disposable sanitary covers and a lens cover in the box. Both bonuses are great; The disposable, absorbent hygienic covers make it even easier to keep your headset clean, and the lens cover prevents dust from building up on your Oculus Quest 2 lenses between uses.
Don’t make a mistake. This is the best VR cover product the company has released. It seems to be the culmination of every lesson VR Cover has learned over its time in making these headset covers, and it solves every problem you might encounter.
These covers are convenient, extremely easy to clean, and easy to install. This all-in-one kit allows you to customize your experience by offering different cover sizes. The extra nose protection prevents steam from rising and obstructing your vision. The lens cover is just a cool way to protect your Oculus Quest 2 lenses from dirt and dust when they are not in use. Everything is available in decent packaging.
Overall, we absolutely recommend the VR Cover Facial Interface & Foam Replacement for Oculus Quest 2. You can find it in the VR Cover Store for 29 US dollars.
