HTC Vive has today announced that the new Vive Deluxe Audio Strap will be available to purchase from 6th June for £99.99 at Vive.com and Vive retailers.
HTC points out the peripheral is ‘great for multi-user environments’, which of course includes developer studios. A quick sizing dial makes it easy to switch between users or to get in and out of the headset quickly, while hard-sided construction with interior padding also provides better ergonomics and weight balance. We can also see the easy-on, easy-off solution making hunting for headphones as you dive from desktop into VR and back throughout the day a thing of the past.
For developers and businesses, the Vive Business Edition (Vive BE) bundles every new purchase with the Deluxe Audio Strap. BE orders placed after 27th February will begin shipping later in June.
