5 MUST-HAVE Oculus Rift S Accessories

The Oculus Rift S is Facebook's best wired headset that they have made, with great display, solid controllers and decent comfort. However, there are still some ways to improve your overall VR experience with the Oculus Rift S. Here are 5 product recommendations that will fix any issues you'll have along the way.

1. VR Cover
VR Cover is known in the VR industry for making extremely comfortable and affordable face covers for all sorts of VR headsets. Their sweat-absorbant cover for the Oculus Rift S is no different - it is made from comfortable cotton to absorb any sweat or moisture, and protects the foam on the headset from any liquid damage or wear-and-tear. If there is one thing on this list you should get, this is the most important. For Australians, this retails for an affordable $39.99 on Kronos Arcade's website:

2. VR Headset Stand
As with all virtual reality headsets, they don't sit particularly stylishly when put aside for the day. Further, as soon as you start adding accessories, the original box they arrive in becomes too small to fit your accessorised-VR headset.
We decided to mount the headset onto a stand, and it looks insane! You can show off your headset (and all its' accessories)

We stock this item here at Kronos for only $39.99. A great price to completely change the look of your room, to show your headset in style:

3. Portable Case
If you don't choose to accessorise your Rift S, but you'd like it to be far more portable and protected in storage, Kronos Arcade's storage pouch might be the way to go. The case is made from high quality nylon, EVA and TPE for an extremely durable and protective case. There is still a little room for extra accessories like controller grip covers if you need.
Kronos Arcade retails this fantastic case for $59.99:

4. Controller Grips
The Rift S controllers are quite ergonomic and light, which makes for easy use during VR gaming. Their main weakness is the battery cover, which will often slip out of place while gaming, particularly during intensive games like Beat Saber, Pistol Whip and Creed.
For just $34.99, these grips will ensure a strong, comfortable grip on your controllers, whilst maintaining its' lightness, and also keeping your hands attached through the quality knuckle-straps.

5. Cable Management System
The one danger with any wired VR headset is, of course, the wire itself. It can intrude on your gameplay, break immersion and create a huge tripping hazard. KIWI Design has fixed this problem through their cable management system, which involves hooking the headset wire up to your ceiling. It keeps the cable out of sight, out of mind, and out of the way.
$34.99 for the 3-Pack goes a long way in keeping you and your headset wire safe, while ensuring the best VR gaming experience for you:
