I remember the time when I used to think “I wish I had enough money to buy HTC Vive, Oculus Rift and all those fancy gadgets”. I did end up buying a few of those, but that didn’t stop me from feeling the pinch. The tug-of-war between price and premium VR experience was real and I kept hoping that there’d be someday when enjoying VR porn on a premium headset could be a reality, and affordable.

At the time though, I didn’t expect this to happen before 10-15 years had passed. But lo and behold, in a span of 3 years, Oculus has managed to offer us Rift-like experience in only $399. It’s a far cry from the original $600 the Rift used to cost. It’s still pricey, but a bit more bearable. Not only that, it offers hope that premium VR porn experience can still be inexpensive.

What’s So Great About The Oculus Quest VR Porn Headset?

Essentially, Oculus Quest (check out our Oculus Quest VR porn guide for premium VR porn experience) will cost the same as Oculus Rift S, but the Oculus Quest is untethered and with better resolution. To a non-geek, tethered or untethered wouldn’t make much of difference. It’s only wires, right? Wrong.

This makes a world of difference. The reason being tethered headsets are dependent on powerful PC and it’s processing power. Untethered headsets come with their own engine and memory. Let’s take the example of a Rift. To buy a Rift, you need to buy the controllers, the sensors and a powerful PC. The PC itself will set you back $1000. However, an untethered headset totally saves you that cost and is available at a lower upfront cost. Imagine that! It’s huge considering the total capital outlay.

From a mass-market point of view, it’s an absolute deal-changer! Then we come to the sensors. Rift comes with its external sensors which need to be put around the room to ensure room scale tracking. Imagine having a few stands around the room with wires around them, connected to your PC and then you walking around the place with a headset on. Not very cool when you’re hosting people. However, Oculus Quest totally changes that equation since you do not need any of those. The Quest’s sensors are embedded on the headset itself. As a result, it saves you space and time to set them up.

The headset also introduces a new function called “passthrough”. This works kind of like AR, where the VR elements are merged on to a real-life view. Here, the user can see the real room when the passthrough function is activated.

In order to connect the Oculus Quest with your wi-fi, you would need to pair it with your phone first. Wi-fi connectivity is absolutely mandatory since most of the VR porn videos and VR porn games are large in size.

The headset comes equipped with a Qualcomm 835 chipset. This means it does not have the same processing power of a Rift (since it’s connect with a PC) but can still handle your favourite VR porn videos and even the most demanding VR porn games.
