TLDR: The AMVR Facial Interface for the Meta Quest 3 VR headset offers comfort and customisation with its dual foam pads, adjustable depth settings, and ventilation features. While not as quick to adjust as Meta’s solution, it provides a solid fit once in place. Although the PU leather pad lacks the extra padding of competitors like VR Cover, it’s compatible with other Quest 2 foam covers. The nosepiece design could be improved for better light blocking, but overall, it’s a must-have accessory for Quest 3 owners seeking enhanced comfort during VR sessions.

The AMVR Facial Interface has been my first full interface solution for the Meta Quest 3 VR headset. Beating the likes of VR Cover to the table, this interface packs two foam pads, one PU leather and the other a soft ‘silk’ cotton, an internal nose flap for added immersion and the main facial interface itself.
Like the stock interface, this one from AMVR allows up to three depth adjustments. Sadly it isn’t as quick or intuitive as Meta’s solution, but it works and it feels solid once it’s clipped into the Quest 3 headset.
The PU leather pad is attached via velcro hook and loop pads on the interface, meaning it is replaceable with one of its softer foam pads, a soft cotton fabric pad, which offers a little more breathability, but its foam is a softer and a little less supportive than I had hoped.
Being attached by velcro also means I could dig out some old Quest 2 foam covers, which surprisingly fit well enough to wear. So you’re not necessarily tied to the ones that come with this facial interface, you can try other brands for Quest 2 also. The Fitness Edition cover from VR Cover worked and looked great, with extra padding on the cheekbone area – something the AMVR PU leather pad doesn’t offer as well.
Adjusting the depth to its lowest setting made my eyelashes touch the HonsVR lenses I had installed, so its default medium setting is the best for me. Adjusting to its largest setting brings the interface further away from the lenses, which makes it ideal for glasses wearers. Adjustments aren’t quick and the interface needs to be removed each time. Adopting Meta’s solution would have been preferred here, but how often are you adjusting them anyway?
Around the interface are several vents and holes, so if you suffer from heat or fogging in the headset, this interface will also benefit you here, making it ideal for fitness fanatics too.
Its nosepiece design lets this interface down a little, but not enough to prevent me from recommending it to anyone. It could have been designed a little better and at times it still allowed light to enter from underneath my nose. Adjusting it to sit outside the interface fixed this issue for me.
Overall, this interface has a slightly different width than stock, so this is great for anyone with a wider face shape, but narrower faces might see some light leak in at the edges when turning fast within VR games. This can be solved with thicker padding, or wearing the headset more tightly with an Elite strap for example.
If the stock interface isn’t doing it for you, and a silicone cover isn’t cutting it either, this facial interface from AMVR is a ‘must try’ accessory for any Quest 3 owner. Matched with its bundled thicker foam padding (or dusting off one from a Quest 2 interface) makes your Quest 3 much more comfortable during long sessions, and even shorter ones. There’s little reason why this interface shouldn’t be on your ‘next-to-buy’ list for your Meta Quest 3.
