Oculus Rift Accessories

The Oculus Rift is one of the original VR headsets and in my opinion is the one that really kickstarted the VR scene, especially on PC. When the Rift originally released, many users had dreams of more comfortable foam straps and covers, due to the limited adjustability and padding on the stock headset. Fortunately for us now, there are a quite a large range of Oculus Rift accessories to choose from. Starting with VR cover, they have produced some of the best foams and covers for the Rift headset, while also remaining one of the cheapest.

Best Oculus Rift Headset Covers

VR Cover For Oculus Rift

The VR cover for Oculus Rift is regarded by most as the best cover for both comfort and preventing moisture build-up. During workout and intense VR gaming, sweat and moisture can become a real issue and in some cases even damage your headset! Using the VR cover for Oculus Rift will minimize the amount of moisture let into your headseat and should keep most of it safely away from the screens.

The covers are easy to put on and take off between uses and can be machine-washed cold. All covers come in a set of two, so you never have to sit around waiting for a cover to dry.

This product is compatible with Oculus Rift CV 1 and not the Oculus Rift S.

Velour Foam Replacement for Oculus Rift

For those looking for even more comfort during their VR gaming sessions, the velour foam replacement from VR cover provides unbeatable softness and absorption. Priced slightly above the standard VR cover, it’s focused at those who are looking for the most pleasant VR experience, especially during long sessions or workout games! If the original VR cover doesn’t quite hit the spot for you, it’s likely you will prefer the velour material this one is made out of!

The foam is available in a set of two pieces in different sizes (6mm and 15mm). This allows you to find the perfect fit regardless of your face shape. The thinner foam replacements offer a similar experience to stock while the thicker version offers more comfort and positions your face slightly further away from the lenses.

These foam replacements only work with VR Cover’s custom facial interfaces for Oculus Rift.
This product is compatible with Oculus Rift CV 1 and not the Oculus Rift S.

Each set includes:
2 x Velour foam replacements

Best Oculus Rift Interfaces

VR Cover Interface & Foam Replacement Basic Set

To get even more comfort and hygeine from your Oculus Rift headset, you can also change the plastic interface to allow for better, more comfortable foams and covers to be attached. VR Cover’s basic kit comes with all you’ll need to get your interface switched out and upgrade to a more comfortable leather padding. The soft PU leather foam it’s made helps reduce pressure buildup while you are playing, hopefully getting rid of or alleviating those pesky red marks you get after an intense VR-gaming session! VR Cover also offers upgraded versions of these kits, the standard and pro versions.

The basic set includes:

1 x Facial Interface (Black)
1 x PU leather foam replacement (Black / Thin size)
1 x VR Cover for Oculus Rift

VR Cover Interface & Foam Replacement Standard Set

Unlike the basic set, the standard set comes with 2 PU leather foam replacements for your headset in both 6mm and 15mm versions.  Available in red or blue, the standard set is much more satisfying to look at when compared to the basic interface. That said, there is a hefty price difference between this one and the basic interface, so it’s up to you to decide if the extra cost is worth the extra accessories. The foam padding feels much stronger in this version and I’d think it would last much longer than the foam found in the basic set.

This product is compatible with Oculus Rift CV 1 and not the newly announced Oculus Rift S.

The standard set includes:

1 x Facial Interface (Black)
1 x VR Cover for Oculus Rift
1 x PU leather foam replacement (Black/ Thin)
2 x PU leather foam replacements (Red or Blue in 6mm + 15mm)

VR Cover Interface & Foam Replacement Pro Set

The Pro set offered by VR Cover for the Oculus Rift has a pretty steep price tag. It contains 8 accessories, including the trademark VR Cover, as well as lots of extra foam pieces to help keep your Rift clean at all times. We found the PU leather foam in this one to be similar to the standard version, the main difference being you get much more in this set. If you own multiple VR headsets, the pro set could be a great deal for you! If however you only own one headset, or you already own a VR cover, it may be a bit unnecessary to purchase this set.

The Pro set includes:

2 x Facial Interfaces (Black)
4 x PU leather foam replacements (Red & Blue)
1 x PU leather foam replacement (Black)
1 x Oculus Rift VR Cover
