This came with a nose guard to block out light which it does a really good job of, also the plastic interface which has velcro for the pads, you just slide the nose guard on and install the interface onto your rift, clicks in just fine. The package comes with two foam pieces, one standard and one with cutouts on the side for glasses. The standard seems to be thicker, and that's the one I used, didnt try both. The pad sticks on fine, make sure you align the top a little higher as you don't want it activating the sensor all the time. Really comfy and a whole load better than the original foam on the rift. Mine also came with a lens insert to protect lenses from natural light or accidental scratches, nice bonus but it does activate the sensor and keeps your rift on, great if you unplug each time but I don't so I won't be using it.
I got this because I swelter like crazy on 8+ (Expert/Expert+) rounds of Beat Saber, and my old foam piece is just, mank with sweat, I obviously need something easier to wash. Sure this is easier to wash, but it doesn't fit as well, too much light means you have to use the nose guard which irritates and tickles the nose. Additionally, there is little to no air flow at all, with it being leather, it will generate friction heat, in 2 songs I'm actually dripping with sweat (never this bad before) than with the original foam cover... Within 4 songs, I have to remove it to let it air as I'm worried the headset might actually get moisture damaged.
I purchased this on a whim because my Oculus's current face plate form was starting to peel off. Far better than I was expecting, the faux leather pads are really comfortable and that fact that you get two is a bonus. One is a standard pad while the other has grooves making it easier for those who where glasses. I thought I would get warm quite quickly wearing it but I actually got warmer wearing the original face plate. To summarise this is a neat piece of kit and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a replacement for the original face plate and hygiene is of a big concern.
The product is ok i would like it to be better quality for the price.
- It blocks a little bit of the fov in the headset but not too much.
- The eye cover thingy that comes with it does not fit if you do manage to jam it in when you want to pull it off you have to take the face mask off to get it out/in. (products they just fit in really easy not so with this one)
- The mask is not as comfortable as the base one that comes with the rift.
- I wish that the black thing thats keeping the foam inside be a little thin and the foam alot more softer and thicker.
- Glasses support one is good but if you dont use glasses the reg one is better.
I've never written a review before but feel I have to tell people to be wary of this product. I have a medium size head and an average nose, and was excited to try this product to replace the standard sweat absorbing original foam pad. It is easy to fit and well presented, however from the very first moment I put it on it felt like someone was lightly pinching the top of my nose. It's enough to be uncomfortable and although only a light touch, it is enough to be super annoying and actually makes me feel like I have a blocked nose and restricts my breathing slightly. It may be I am sensitive in this area but have never noticed it before. I have removed the nose piece and it now lets a lot of light in but is much more comfortable for me this way. The covering itself so far is proving beneficial when playing beat sabre or getting very sweaty in VR so I am going to keep it. I would just be wary when purchasing that this may be an issue you will also have.
I wish I had bought this sooner. I only I had known. We've been putting up with the sweaty original foam thingy for ages and finally I had had enough. I tried a few silicone ones which were rubbish then found this. The price was a bit higher but wow - this is better than the original. Really comfy, fits like a glove, doesn't soak up sweat and it cmes with 2, one normal and ne for glasses.
Totally recommended for anyone with the Oculus Rift!
This product is just what I needed! Dry, comfortable and allows you face to "breathe". Easy to attach to visor. The nose cover is no addition though. Assembled it with the nose cover art first. Was uncomfortable. Took it off and found it was completely unnecessary! Would recommend for anyone. Note: can't comment on very rigorous games like Beat Saber but fine for Alyx, Pavlov, The Forest, Aces High, etc
I bought this because the normal facepad would start to get disgustingly soaked in sweat during and after VR sessions. It became really bad for my skin, was unhygienic and became really uncomfortable.
This product was a great solution to that!
It felt quite strange initially, especially around the nose area. But after some adjusting and a short amount of play time I got used to it. The nose flap it comes with is brilliant too. It blocks much more light than the normal one, making the experience feel more like a Vive rather than an Oculus (which is a good thing!). Upon taking the headset off, no longer are you greeted with the realisation that a soggy mattress has been sitting upon your face. Instead it is the leather of a slightly warm sofa, swiftly cleanable with a baby or alcohol wipe.
Overall, I'd say that it's a pretty worthwhile buy especially if you tend to have long, lengthy and sweaty VR sessions like myself. Highly recommended!
This is a great replacement for the original face mask for the Oculus rift. The instructions are fairly good, although it took me a little bit longer to figure out the nose piece. As somebody else has commented, it does cover the sensor and switches the Rift on. There is an easy fix for this, just download "Oculus Tray Tool" and you can easily switch it off until needed. It did look like there was some light seeping through at first, but I didn't notice this in game. I've not tried this while playing my favourite Beat Saber clone Moonrider, but I think it will improve game play very much. Seems expensive at first, but with the velcro attachment for the faux leather you can replace it easily.
Wow this is amazing. The original padding was like an old sponge, with this is feels comfortable,fits better than it ever has before and I don't have to worry about my hair getting in the way and being forever trapped in the sponge. Spent a long time on it and it's perfect. Just make sure you push until it clicks and it's stays properly locked in place.
