Virtual reality has come a long way, and with each passing year, it continues to evolve and amaze us with new possibilities. Meta is finally releasing their newest Quest 3 headset, following the massively popular Quest 2; a headset which has seen numerous improvements and upgrades making it a crowd favorite. Known for its wireless design, impressive performance, and a vast library of immersive games and experiences, the Quest 3 is set to make an even more significant impact in the world of virtual reality. However, to take your VR adventures to the next level, it's always exciting to explore the latest accessories designed to enhance your Meta Quest 3 experience. In this blog, we'll take a look at some upcoming accessories that promise to do just that.
Improved Audio Solutions
Audio is a crucial component of any immersive VR experience, and the Quest 3 is no exception. The Quest 3 is said to have Bluetooth technology built-in, which means you'll be able to use your favorite wireless earbuds/headphones.
If you don't already have a pair of wireless headphones, we highly suggest something like the Razer Hammerhead True Wireless earbuds. These will offer improved sound quality, noise cancellation, and comfort, allowing you to get lost in your VR world without distractions. Light up your immersion with the new Razer Hammerhead True Wireless—cutting-edge earbuds destined to dominate the soundstage. With 60ms low latency Gaming Mode, brace your senses for an audio experience like never seen before. With 16.8 million colors and a suite of effects to choose from, bring out your style and stand out from the crowd with the ultimate wireless earbud flex.
Not a fan of earbuds and want something to cover your ears in full audio? A company which has been a staple in the competitive and casual gaming industry for a long time has been Astro, and their Astro A40 TR Headset can be a beautiful pair for the Meta Quest 3.
The Quest 3 controllers are already impressive with ergonomic improvements and no more bulky tracking ring. With this in mind, there is still a better set of controllers already out on the market that you can pick up which will improve your gaming and casual experience even further. Meta released the Meta Quest Touch Pro Controllers which is a major upgrade in almost every way.
These controllers are 'self-tracked' which means they have 3 built in cameras which track where they are in the real world. The added weight gives such a fantastic feel along with the rubberized outside. It truly feels like a solid upgrade worth the hefty price tag of $300.
Extended Battery Packs
VR gaming can be incredibly immersive, but it's also quite power-intensive. Extended battery
packs designed to seamlessly attach to the Quest 3 will provide longer playtime, reducing the need to stop and recharge your headset frequently. This is particularly useful for those marathon gaming sessions.
A solid external battery that you can remove and recharge would be the Wasserstein 5000mah Power Bank which will give you an extra 2+ hours of battery life for when you don't want to stop the in-game fun.
Base Station Stands
Comfort is key for a satisfying VR experience. One thing we tend to forget about when purchasing a new piece of VR hardware is 'where do I put this when I'm not using it'. Fortunately, there's already accessories available on the market to get you prepared on day one to get your upgraded Quest 3 gaming station organized. Aliexpress can sometimes feature some janky products, but if you're someone who likes to be extra prepared and doesn't want to spend a boat load of money, then check out the Quest 3 Display Stand. It's a cheap plastic stand but it looks to function just right to get you through the beginning stages of your new setup.
Wireless Streaming Solutions
Imagine being able to play PC VR games wirelessly on your Quest 3. Upcoming accessories are expected to offer improved wireless streaming solutions, eliminating the need for cables and allowing you to experience the full potential of your gaming PC without compromise.
VR Gun Stock Accessories
If you're a fan of first-person-shooters, a Meta Quest 3 Gunstock would be a phenomenal addition to your gameplay and one we highly recommend is the SPINE Quest 3 VR gun stock or the LoPRO Meta Quest 3 VR gunstock. The SPINE features a body and length that works for gamers of all play styles. The entire underside of the stock body is magnetic, so any gun you use will work seamlessly by sliding your off-hand forward or backward to match your in-game firearm.
The LoPRO Quest 3 virtual reality gun stock accessory is a specialized stock for those who like to get quick and dirty with their elims. The name stands for 'Low Profile' due to it's deliberately simple but effective design. When you like to hit those corners fast and hard, the LoPRO comes in clutch by eliminating all the frills and extra weight added to your stock to give you the fastest hands in any game you play.
The Meta Quest 3 is already an incredible VR headset, but the excitement doesn't end there. With a range of upcoming accessories on the horizon, users can look forward to a more comfortable, immersive, and feature-rich experience. Whether you're a dedicated gamer, a fitness enthusiast, or someone looking to explore virtual reality in entirely new ways, these accessories are sure to elevate your Quest 3 adventures to new heights. Stay tuned for these exciting additions to the world of virtual reality. Your next VR journey is about to get even more thrilling!
