To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
Don't buy from Amazon as Oculus warranty support won't support you if you buy them here. I reached out to Oculus and they told me to deal with Amazon if you buy them here. Way to go Oculus :( There is an error with these headphones and Oculus is re-issuing a new set of headphones. Amazon is still selling the old ones with problems. DON'T BUY. I bought mine August 1st and the reissue ones are in July. I realize that all earphones are probably created equal and that some are cheaper in price than others. However after carefully reading all the reviews I came to one conclusion and that is since I've spent $700 on my Quest, why try to save $30 on a pair of earbuds. As a lot of reviews has said, these in-ear headphones are comfortable and they continue to remain comfortable. So why take a chance on some 3rd party headphones that try to make the headphones as cheaply as possible. Sure these headphones are expensive but they are the same company who made your VR headset so might as well get the products that works together and if something goes wrong someday like your headphone don't work, Oculus can't blame some other headphone company for a shoddy product and Oculus will replace their headphones if it is their fault. Just saying buy Oculus Parts for Oculus hardware. BTW the headphones are great, nice and comfy and it blocks out the outside sound too! I didn't test it out to see if there is great bass but it is good enough to keep me immersed within my own VR world. Netflix dialogs came through loud and clear. I love the fact that I can just leave my ear phones dangling when I take my headset off. No messy cords. I am however taking one star off because the "R" is in black and you cannot tell which headphone is the "R" and which one is "L".
Of all the shapes of headphones, Oculus chose the worst one, ever, if your ears collect so much earwax. I did my best to find the right size to put them in my ears by those three caps they included, but they always fall out from them. My left ear must've collected more earwax than my right because I can't hear the left side. I did my best to clean the left side to get the wax out. I washed it with a mildly wet toothbrush. But it doesn't work anymore. I hate in-ear earphones! I HATE THIS ITEM, OCULUS!!! Those who gave this item a 5-star rating must be using a Q-tip and damaging their eardrums. This is just my opinion. If you're going to buy it, let me ask you something: if you have clean ears like the English Channel, go ahead. But if they collect so much earwax like Shrek--he's got a lot to make a candle--, AVOID. THIS. ITEM.
Just received them, plugged them in to our Oculus Quest and there is a very noticeable hiss. The sound does come through, but the hiss is so annoying we are returning them. Very surprised since these are the actual Oculus brand headphones. We will try another brand and hope for better sound.
