General Specifications
About the Product
Oculus Quest is the world's first all-in-one gaming system built for virtual reality. No wires. No PC. Just set up with the Oculus mobile app, and you’re free to explore VR from almost anywhere. Four ultra-wide angle sensors inside the headset power Oculus Insight, which precisely tracks your environment and instantly translates your movements into VR.
Step into Rift. Whether you're stepping into your favorite game, watching an immersive VR movie, jumping to a destination on the other side of the world, or just spending time with friends in VR, you'll feel like you're really there.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Oculus Quest All-in-one VR Gaming Headset
  • The controller feel very similar to the Go, apart from the buttons and thumbtack are where the smooth touchpad is, and of course, there’s a big sensor ring at the end.
  • Each controller has what feel like a smooth suede wrist strap for safety so you don’t launch them by accident.
  • Fire a gun and we feel the kick. Get punched in the face, we feel the impact.
  • Everything is a lot more clear than the Go and you actually feel like you're in the VR location. It all feels a lot more real - almost like looking through binoculars without magnification.
  • Colours are much more vibrant that the Go. This no doubt will be due to the OLED technology in each of the two lenses.
Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset
  • Its a great product.
  • Warning to anyone afraid of heights! It seems real! Also have to avoid the games with fast movement because I get motion sick, but I love most of the games!
  • I think that you need to add more movement to the VR to get a better sense of immersion, similar to the HTC Vive with room detection.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Oculus Quest All-in-one VR Gaming Headset
  • Overall feel is very robust.
  • Incredible what they have done in such a small package. Wow! Thank you Oculus for the Quest!
  • This thing is incredible. Its full VR. With nothing but this fairly light (compared to the vive) headset and two small controllers (which seem to magically know what my hands are doing!).
  • Lightweight device.
  • The comfort of the headset is quite bad, all the weight is at the front and even when adjusted properly it's quite heavy on the head.
Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset
  • VERY well built for such a delicate device.

What customers say about "Features"
Oculus Quest All-in-one VR Gaming Headset
  • Wireless. Looks slick. Great battery life. Easy to setup. Recommended!!
  • Very quick set-up, great (if small) selection of games and apps, and using it is as simple as turning it on, putting it on your head, and adjusting the head straps.
  • It has a great level of immersion in games and the inside-out tracking is brilliant and I've only encountered a couple minor problems.
  • This will definitely soak up sweat, though arguably necessary for comfort - and you’re going to want that playing for long periods of time.
  • Taking out the headset first, I felt the fabric coating around the sides. This gave an extra feel of quality and it certainly felt different from the cheaper plastic.
Oculus Rift Virtual Reality Headset
  • Sound quality is very good.
  • It fits almost perfectly, you can customize it so well.
  • Setup was easy, using the Oculus store is intuitive and the free apps can fill your first day experimenting.
