The headset doesn't touch or press against your ears and attaches right to the Meta Quest 2.

Logitech recently debuted its new Chorus headset for Meta Quest 2 and it comes with a number of interesting features. Notably, how the headset doesn’t touch or press against your ears, and how its open-back design allows it to attach to the Meta Quest.

The headset is currently available for pre-order right now at a $99 (USD) price point, and based on its design, seems like it’d be a solid accessory for players looking to increase feelings of immersion while playing various VR titles, and for those who may be sensitive about having headphones pressed against their ears (especially when it comes to long gaming sessions).

According to the product page, the Chorus is lightweight and attaches directly to all three Meta Quest 2 strap options. No batteries are required for the device as it uses a “USB-C passthrough connection” that plugs right into the Meta Quest 2. That said, it’s noted on the product page that charging the device can only be done with an “optional USB-C Link Cable.” Other features on offer with the Chorus headset include a flip to mute function and “big open-back audio drivers.”

It’ll be interesting to see, once the device starts shipping out, what the performance and sound quality will be like. With that being said, we’re eager to hear your thoughts on the Chorus headset for Meta Quest 2. Do you like the off-ear design? Let us know in Chatty!

      Can it be used with the elite battery strap while that’s plugged into the headset?

        I believe so, the product page talks briefly about using it with the elite strap:

        "CHORUS is always ready to play and still gives you access to USB-C for power, optional Elite Strap with Battery, or anything else."

      Looks like it's modeled after the Index, which is a good place to start.

      I really have to get a better strap for my Quest 2. Do the stupid elite straps still split? :P

          That’s sexy. If I didn’t have the already comfy elite strap with battery I’d buy it from you.

          The DAS is such a great addition to the Quest, mine was worth every penny.

      Doesn't hearing your environment break immersion?
      I have no problem using a on-ear headset for my current VR set (original headphones broke, so I just screwed them off).
