Experience Ultimate VR Audio Immersion
Real Life Sound Direction Perception
Off-Ear Speaker Provides Ear Freedom

A little fiddly to get oriented correctly, but once you do the sound is fantastic!
I just wish you could turn off the auto-off function when it was connected to a computer via USB. not enough of a problem to deduct a star however.
VR Ears is an excellent choice for the Vive Pro 2 headset.
When the built in headphones on my Pro2 began to fail [intermittent sound loss on the left side] I started looking for solutions.
I am very pleased with VR Ears for several reasons:
1. The sound quality is excellent and directional; [I can hear the creek flowing and foot steps behind me].
2. I like the placement just off my ears. Mine sit 1-1/2 inches away from my ears and my ears stay cool.
3. Now it is very easy to put the headset on and off. [I was always moving the earphones around and adjusting placement each time I put it on / off.] Now it's as simple as putting on a baseball cap.
4. I use my Pro2 with the Vive cable. So the VR Ears batteries stay charged. I never have to charge them separately.
5. The VR Ears on/off button automatically shifts the audio from the computer speakers to the ear phones when pressed.
All in all, I feel like I got a very good upgrade for my headset!
Despite the tricky setup and bulky design I found it to be worth it for the fantastic audio experience!
For the money these are a great addition to my Varjo Aero, as good as my Valve Index. Only downsides are the need to charge the battery and a lack of strap adapters for my headset, but i have made do with the best fit.
As a quest 2 owner, I found the default sound output to be… serviceable at best, non-immersive at worse. In comes the VR Ears as the savior for the banal default solution. With a much richer sound field leading to improved immersion and the added benefit of being off-ears meaning you don’t have them pressing on your ears which also benefits the sense of immersion. Because I use a 3rd party Halo strap, I felt the VR Ears were best suited for me to use with Rebuff Reality’s own “Ear Strap” accessory. This in turn allows me to use the VR Ears with other peripherals including my PC/phone. End result is I’m surprised at just how good they are; Highly recommended!!
VR Ears fundamentally transforms the VR audio experience, a new world of sound awaits you
VR Ears has developed an audio experience that is nearly on par with sound in the real world, while display optics may need time to catch up. VR Ears is ready for that future
Modern video game engines and VR applications utilize advanced 3D spatial audio algorithms that deliver sound in L/R stereo channels. VR Ears delivers this audio experience to players in the most natural way possible.
VR Ears gives you the full feeling of off-ear surround sound speakers, even as you move your head and body, especially immersive in videos using binaural audio.
Invasive and uncomfortable, zero use of outer ear for sound, easily clogged with ear wax
Hot and annoying, outer ear constricted and not able to deliver positional sound naturally
Before sound enters your ears, it bounces around all the flesh on the outer ear(pinna). This biological structure is in fact a large part of what helps you to perceive sound direction and contributes to the reason our ears are shaped in this strange way
Hold VR Ears in your Hands Right Now in your PC or Quest browser!
Better sound accuracy means getting the drop on an enemy faster, or avoiding death in precarious situations in game. Let all who dare to sneak up on you beware the VR Ears. Use VR Ears with the Ear Strap accessory (coming soon)
