Honored Guest

The strap can be adjusted in size. It does take a bit of fiddling to get it comfortable and stable, but once you do, it should be good for all future use. Assuming, of course, that only one person is using it. If it's too tight, then loosen the strap going around the back. If it's hanging down painfully, adjust the top strap to get things snug enough that the weight is distributed evenly.

Lo, a quest! I seek the threads of my future in the seeds of the past.

I bought a BOBOVR M2 from AliExpress.  It’s now my goto head strap.  It’s comfortable and cheap at about £17.  There are favourable reviews on YouTube for you to look at.  If I were you, I’d consider it.

O.o You are braver then I am. I wont touch AliExpress with a 100 foot pole, let alone any payment information.


All things being equil though, for the OP I'd recommend against even considering Oculus's Elite strap. From everything I've heard, it breaks far too easily. You'd be better off adjusting the size of the default strap and maybe buying pads that can be attached to it.

The problem, really, is that the side straps are too wide.


The only comfortable fit for the headset involves positioning them in such a way that they cut into my ears. If I adjust the straps to not cut my ears, all of the weight of the headset presses into my eyebrows.
Every adjustment that fixes something just makes something else hurt.
