While you might be more excited about the HTC Vive Pro, Oculus Go, or Oculus Quest, the Oculus Rift versus HTC Vive comparison is still a major debate worth having when it comes to picking the right VR headset for you — especially if you already have a capable gaming PC.
The Rift and Vive both utilize adjustable Velcro straps and comfortable padding on the interior faceplate. The Vive is the heavier of the two, which makes sense given it touts 37 visible sensors on the front to pick up the laser-signal from its external tracking sensors. If you like, you can update the Vive with the Deluxe Audio Strap, though it is an extra $100.
The Rift, on the other hand, showcases a sleeker, fabric-coated exterior design and smaller footprint. It’s easier to get on and off and is a little more comfortable over long periods of use. While the Vive still looks a bit experimental, the Rift looks like a futuristic device you’ll be happy to show off. See more...
