Meta has recently made its Quest Pro headset available for the first time ever
at a 27% discount, which brings the price down from
$1,500 to $1,100 through retailers such as Amazon.
This marks an all-time low for the device, making it a tempting offer for
those looking to invest in a high-performance virtual reality headset.
The Quest Pro is powered by the Snapdragon XR2+ chipset and has 12GB of RAM,
making it 50% more powerful than the Quest 2. This improved performance is
evident in its built-in speakers, which support spatial audio and eliminate
the need for additional headphones. Additionally, the Quest Pro features
advanced sensors that enhance the virtual meeting experience in Horizon
The Quest Pro’s advanced features come at a cost. The device weighs over a
pound and a half, making it less comfortable to wear for extended periods of
time than the Quest 2. The additional features also negatively impact the
battery life of the headset. For those looking for a VR headset for gaming,
the Quest Pro does not offer a significantly better experience compared to the
Quest 2, which is more affordable.
Engadget’s Sam Rutherford
gave the Quest Pro a score of 83 when he reviewed the device last October, but
he did mention that its $1,500 price tag made it too expensive for most users.
At $1,100, the Quest Pro remains a luxury item that may only be suitable for
the most enthusiastic VR users.
Despite its hefty price tag and some drawbacks, the Quest Pro is still a
high-performance virtual reality headset that offers advanced features and
improved performance compared to its predecessor. It’s a great option for
those who are looking for a more immersive virtual experience, especially for
virtual meetings and collaborations. However, it’s important to consider the
trade-off of comfort and battery life before making a purchase.
