In this video, we briefly look over the K3 Head Strap, then we look at how well it is to install on your Quest 2 headset, then finally I give you my first impressions of the head strap and if it is worth buying.
The K3 Elite Head Strap comes at us at a time where head straps are difficult to obtain, due to the issues that the official Oculus Elite Head Strap has faced. Now that these issues have resolved, stock is still an issue for Oculus, so it is worth exploring the alternative options that are out there, and the Elygo K3 is just one of them.
The K3 shares a lot of similarities with the official strap from Oculus, however, it does do a few things differently. Its attachment straps need to be put together before they can be attached to the headset, and the process can be a nuisance, but it can be eventually overcome with some patience.
The support for the lower back of your head will vary depending on the wearer and because of this, it isn’t as good as the official Elite Strap. Without the upper part to support your head, the overall support and weight aren’t as well supported or balanced.
One I do like about this strap is the velcro padding. Although a little too thin for my liking, it means it can be replaced as well as be used to support any earbud or headphone cable management around the headset. I would like more makers to adopt this, although the back part of the strap could do with a bit of design revision.
If you’re looking for a head strap to replace the default soft strap, and your money cannot stretch to the official option, or there is limited stock, then the K3 is not a bad alternative. Its cheaper price is reflected in its materials, build, and quality. But if you can see past these, it’s a decent alternative to the soft strap on the Quest 2.
