How to adjust VR headsets

GENERAL COMFORT TIPS

  • Adjust the headband so that the weight of the headset is distributed across the forehead.
  • There should be as little pressure as possible on the cheekbones. 
  • Tie back long hair.
  • For comfort and hygiene, use a VRcomfy Mask (for Vive, Rift, Go, Gear VR, Windows Mixed Reality VR, Daydream View and mobile headsets) or VRcomfy Sweatband (for PSVR).

    HOW TO ADJUST HEADSETS

    HTC Vive, Oculus Rift, Samsung Gear VR, Windows Mixed Reality, mobile headsets

    • The top strap should hold the weight of the headset against the forehead.
    • The headset should not feel tight.
    • The headband should cup the back of the head (not the top.)

      Step-by-step

      1. You can adjust your headset with your VRcomfy Mask on or off.
      2. Start with the straps loosely done up.
      3. Hold the headset firmly against your forehead.
      4. Adjust the top strap so that the headband runs across or below the bump at the back of your head.  
      5. Adjust the side straps to hold the headset in place. These straps should not feel too tight.
      6. If you have difficulties focusing or too much light comes in, try moving the headset a little (up, down, left or right.)
