The official Vive Deluxe Audio Strap goes on sale June 6. The $99.99 peripheral adds integrated audio to HTC’s virtual reality headset, so users no longer have to fumble around for their headphones before jacking in. More info is available at the Vive blog.
Am I the only one who would prefer they just fix the audio when playing without a headset with surround sound speakers. I really believe most people would rather have some connection to the outside world instead of being completely oblivious and audio is a good choice for that.
