Meta Quest 2 sold at an unprecedented price on Amazon!


Meta Quest 2, previously known as Oculus Quest, is one of the best premium virtual reality headsets. Its greatest advantage is that it is accessible to everyone. It underwent a name change after the takeover of its manufacturer by Facebook.

Since its launch, it has not been the subject of any discount on the manufacturer’s site, or anywhere else. To remedy this, Amazon decides to offer an incredible discount of 100 euros on this model. Notice to gamers: the time has come for you to buy this new model of VR headset!

How to use Meta Quest 2?

The Meta Quest 2 headset allows you to enter a parallel world to play fun games that are out of the ordinary. To start a game, just wear the helmet on your head, adjusting it correctly to prevent it from falling. Thanks to its ergonomic design and its weight of 500 g, this VR headset is very comfortable. It can therefore be worn for several hours without feeling its heaviness or other unpleasant sensation.

But that’s not all, the Meta Quest 2 VR headset also has two joysticks that will allow you to interact in the game. If this headset was first designed to play virtual reality games, you must know that it can also be used for other purposes. Indeed, it can be used to watch videos, by accessing YouTube or any other similar site.

Nevertheless, the best experience to have with this VR headset remains that of video games. By wearing it, you will become one of the characters of the game and you will feel propelled into another universe. Thanks to Black Friday and the e-commerce giant Amazon, the Meta Quest 2 is now sold at 399 euros, while its initial price is 449 euros. So don’t wait any longer! Run quickly to Amazon to order your helmet at the best price!

Meta Quest 2 review

The Meta Quest 2 (formerly known as Oculus Quest 2) is the virtual reality headset you’re after if you’re looking to play games and enjoy other immersive experiences in VR without being tethered to a PC or having to dock your phone.

Building upon its predecessor, the Meta Quest 2 comes with a more intuitive and slicker design, as well as more performance and a boost to its display resolution. Based on my testing, the Meta Quest 2 certainly isn’t perfect. For example, the controllers aren’t rechargeable.

Overall, though, the Meta Quest 2 is the best VR headset for most people. Just keep in mind that a Meta Quest 3 is reportedly on the horizon, so it’s worth checking out those rumors.

Price and availability 

Currently, the Meta Quest 2 starts at $399 in the U.S. and £399 in the U.K. for the 128GB unit. But we’d suggest paying a little more to get the 256GB option; it will set you back $499 or £499, but will hold a lot more games and apps. 

Sadly, the Quest 2 was $100/£100 cheaper when it launched in 2022. But the recent price hike still doesn’t make the Quest 2 bad value. And do check out our round up of all the retailers you can check to find where to buy the Meta Quest 2.

Note: Details are now starting to emerge of the Meta Quest 3, and it looks set to be a powerful upgrade 


When it comes to design the Meta Quest 2 is rather sleek for a virtual reality headset. Normally bulky googles ae replaced with light and comfortable headset that’s no 10% less heavy than its predecessor. A simple strap and four camera sensors on the headset give it a simple and clean aesthetics that means it looks decent just sitting on a desk as well as mounted one’s head. And a light gray color also makes the Quest 2 easy on the eye. 

The headset’s sparse, smartly placed button and port layout helps maintain its seamless design. You’ll find a power button on the right side of the headset, a volume rocker on the right underside, and a USB-C port and headphone jack on the left for charging and audio. You can adjust the spacing of the Meta Quest 2’s lenses with three different viewing settings by pinching them or spreading them out manually right within the inside of the headset, eliminating the need for the switch that sat at the bottom of the original Quest.

At a compact 7.5 x 4 x 5.2 inches and 1.1 pounds, the Meta Quest 2 felt lightweight and comfortable, even when I spent more than an hour at a time in VR. A generous amount of foam padding made it easy to forget I had a hunk of plastic strapped to my face, while the headset’s adjustable elastic bands allowed me to find the right fit for my head. 

A word of warning: I finished a rather long play session with a comically large red indent on my forehead, so you might want to make sure your Meta Quest 2 isn’t too tight before you dive in.

Getting set up

Like the original Quest, the Meta Quest 2 is an all-in-one VR  system that doesn’t require you to set up any external sensors or cameras — everything you need is right in the headset. The setup process only takes a few minutes; you’ll put the headset on, activate your account via the Oculus mobile app, establish your play area, and you’re good to go.

The Meta Quest 2 once again uses Oculus’ Guardian system, which lets you sketch out a playspace with your Oculus Touch controllers to avoid bumping into walls and furniture. Creating my Guardian space was as simple as virtually painting a rectangle in my living room, which I could clearly see thanks to the headset’s Passthrough+ cameras. The Meta Quest 2’s Passthrough+ mode is designed to reduce the depth disparity found in other passthrough cameras, and I found it to match up well to my actual surroundings during testing.

he headset will automatically switch to Passthrough mode if you leave your Guardian boundary, allowing you to instantly see any surroundings you might come into contact with. There’s also an optional ability to toggle Passthrough mode with a quick tap on the side of the headset, which is handy for when you want to check in on the real world every now and then.

Oculus recommends having a 6.5 x 6.5-foot space for room-scale VR, which allows you to freely walk around a virtual space for more active experiences. Don’t have a ton of space to play with? You can also establish a stationary boundary for playing with the Meta Quest 2 while sitting or standing in a single spot. If the room you set things up in has a TV, it’s possible to cast your Meta Quest 2 to a TV set.

Controllers and hand tracking

The Meta Quest 2 features a redesigned version of the Oculus Touch Controllers built to deliver better gesture tracking. The setup is largely the same as before: each of the scoop-shaped controllers feature two shoulder buttons for doing things like firing weapons and grabbing objects, with clickable analog sticks and a pair of face buttons on each controller. You’ll also want to use the included wrist straps to make sure they don’t go flying in the middle of a tense lightsaber fight.

I found the Meta Quest 2’s controllers to be comfortable and easy to use across a variety of different games and experiences. The snappy triggers and accurate motion sensing allowed me to snag easy headshots in Pistol Whip, and I had no trouble hacking away at color-coded blocks during the rhythm-action of Beat Saber. The controllers’ haptics are also impressive, as they allowed me to feel the distinct buzz of an ignited lightsaber during Vader Immortal while keeping me on track in Tetris Effect with a subtle pulse that matched the in-game music.

I’m slightly disappointed that the Touch Controllers run on AA batteries, and aren’t rechargeable via USB. Still, each controller uses only a single battery, and both of my controllers are shown as having full battery capacity on my Quest interface after several weeks of use. The controllers are rated to offer around 30 hours of juice on a single battery.

The Meta Quest 2 also offers hand tracking, allowing you to navigate the headset’s menus and play select games using your hands alone. While I appreciate having the option, I found that hand-tracking wasn’t as intuitive as I’d hoped, and had trouble getting my pinch-to-select gestures to register as I moved around the Oculus home screen.

There are currently only a handful of Quest apps that support hand tracking, and the feature was finicky at best in the ones that I did use. While I eventually got the hang of navigating menus and moving documents around in the Spatial productivity app, I struggled to control hand-supported games such as The Curious Tale of the Stolen Pets.
