Can the Quest Pro face cover or head strap be modified?

Unlike the Meta Quest 2, the head strap and facial interface in the Meta Quest Pro are not user-serviceable. Because of its modular construction, the Meta Quest Pro seldom requires customization. Some Quest Pro users are already (unofficially) customising the headset, so we may still see coverings for the forehead region or back battery hookups for the strap arrive from third-party accessory producers.

Members of the Quest community are used to tinkering with their headsets in search of performance gains. The Quest2, for instance, features a skin-irritating foam cover and a front-heavy head strap. As a consequence, many consumers ditch the factory-installed strap and face interface in favour of an alternative model that incorporates a rechargeable battery.

Compared to other similar products, the Meta Quest Pro looks significantly distinct. The built-in halo strap may be loosened or tightened using a knob on the rear of the headset, and there is no top strap. The outside of the strap is hard, while the inside is padded to cradle your head and lay comfortably on your forehead.

You can’t take the strap off since it’s all one piece, from the strap to the headset. As opposed to the Quest2, the Quest Pro does not include a “facial interface” since your face is not in contact with it. A second knob allows you to change the distance between the lenses to accommodate eyeglasses.

It’s feasible that someone will offer a silicone face cover that slides over the forehead cushioning, similar to the ones that were marketed for the Quest 2 interface. If you use the Quest Pro often, you’ll need to clean the area where the headset presses on your face, but no firm has yet produced a cleaning tool for it.

While wearing the Quest Pro, some users, such as Kojiro Yano, have resorted to using an additional overhead band to “extra weight support” the hefty headset. Users may thus discover methods to enhance the head strap even if a replacement is unavailable.

Only the official full light blockers that magnetically connect to the front of the Quest Pro headset and completely block out your surroundings for VR gaming are considered to be legitimate accessories. You should get a blocker for the Quest Pro if you plan on using it for gaming. The Quest Pro’s all-in-one design is limited to a two-hour battery life, but the Quest 2’s battery life may be extended to four hours with the addition of the Elite Strap with Battery. However, as can be seen in the above picture, some Quest Pro users have begun using Quest 2 battery packs with their device.

The Redditor (opens in new tab) has found a way to secure the BoboVR B2 Dock Battery Pack in place using velcro straps. If you purchase more than one battery, you can simply switch in a fully charged one and let the other one charge while you continue working on your Quest Pro.

Clever though it may be, there are drawbacks to this approach: you need to be familiar with modifying rather than using an official tool, and the well-balanced Quest Pro might become front-heavy with a large battery mounted in the back. You may install the greatest Quest 2 battery pack to your Quest Pro, but doing so would need some DIY skills.
