The Chorus, a $99 audio attachment from Logitech’s, attempts to improve the sound output of the Meta Quest 2 VR headset. The appeal of the Chorus is that it allows you to stay more present in reality with its open-back, off-ear speakers similar to the Valve Index, as opposed to utilising over-ear or in-ear headphones you may already own. The speakers may be turned to find the best location for your ears, and it slips onto each side of the VR headset.
The Quest 2’s volume rocker is used to manage their volume. It is powered via the USB-C port on the Quest 2, but it also supports USB-C passthrough so you may connect other devices or charge your headphones to it. The speakers, according to Logitech’s, have specially tuned drivers that are designed to reproduce both the “biggest moments and the tiniest details in the metaverse.” Additionally, because of their open-back design, they won’t prevent ambient sound from reaching your ears. This strategy for speaker design has advantages and disadvantages.
I mentioned that you could pick up HTC’s Deluxe Audio strap for roughly the same price, which includes good-sounding headphones plus a set of strap converters to get a somewhat similar (but less polished) effect to what the Chorus claims to offer, in our YouTube video detailing some of my favourite Quest 2 features, tips, and recommended add-ons. Additionally, the Quest 2 can be used with any pair of wired 3.5mm headphones.
