Best Bluetooth Headphones for Oculus Go Android Central 2020
VICSOME True Wireless are currently the best headphones you're going to find for your Oculus Go. From the noise-canceling abilities to their ability to seem like they're not even there, these are the perfect fit for the best immersive experience for your virtual reality adventures.
For the most immersion
These earbuds come with a neat little compact that also serves as a charger to help you always keep them together. Fret not about losing your favorite pair of headphones, they'll stay together for you!
Why the Visome headphones?
Whenever we play VR we want to feel, see, and interact with as little of the real world as we can. Visome delivers this effect by being small enough that you'll completely forget that they're there. Besides, the noise-canceling alone is enough to sell me. One of my biggest problems when getting into horror games in VR is always still being able to hear my roommates chatting and cutitng all that extra noise out will only let me get into the game more.
Reasons to buy
- Noise canceling
- Almost like they're not there
- Fast charging
- Long lasting battery life
- Built-in microphones
Reasons not to buy
- Pieces are small and could easily be lost
- Charging is a hassle if you lose the device
Why would you want Bluetooth headphones for your VR headset?
When using your VR headset, the biggest problem you'll encounter is immersion, whether it's hearing the world around you to accidentally bumping your knee on a coffee table. Every little thing we do to help that truly makes a difference. So, while you can move your furniture to make more room for walking around, you can also upgrade your sound options to better improve your gaming sessions.
3D sound for better immersion in VR, but still comfortable enough to use in everyday life
Outside of using these headphones for your VR sessions, they also come in handy in your everyday life as well. Bluetooth headphones are perfect for taking your morning train, plugging in to tune out, or even daily runs. The more comfortable and durable they are, the more uses you can get out of them. However, buying Bluetooth headphones can be an investment, so you want to make sure you get the best option for you.
While wireless earbuds are the most comfortable for some, others might prefer over-the-ear. Regardless of your preference, there's a set of headphones for you. Use them with your Oculus Go, your phone, computer, and more!
Alternatives to the Visome headphones
If the Visome headphones aren't for you, you can always check out the Mpow H5 Bluetooth Headphones or the Hussar Magicbuds. The Mpow H5 is my go-to pick for actual headphones instead of earbuds, and the Hussar Magicbuds will surely form to anyone's budget. So, whether you have a different preference, or don't want to spend as much, I've got a few options for you.
The best over-the-ear option
Currently Amazon's best choice, these Mpow headphones are an absolute steal. There are 3 color options and the Bluetooth options work up to 33 feet away by using Bluetooth 4.1!
These over-the-ear headphones are also noise-canceling and made of comfortable protein fibers to not only be comfortable, but durable. If you're more of a fan of headphones instead of earbuds, these are the choice for you. I've even used these headphones while watching ASMR videos on YouTube while trying to sleep. Trust me, if they're comfortable enough to sleep in they're perfectly fine for VR games and experiences.
Save your money with a semi-wired option
You never want to go too cheap when it comes to your tech or you run the risk of having more problems than you started out with. These Bluetooth headphones have a wire going between them (that wraps around your neck) and will be the best option you've got on a budget. They're not noise-canceling or high-tech in their sound options, but they'll definitely get the job done!
The VICSOME True Wireless is the best choice. The price isn't too crazy and, for their intended purpose of VR, they're virtually undetectable. The$60 price tag doesn't just get you a great pair of earbuds for your Oculus Go, but also one for your everyday use. That's really what we're looking for when we're getting new technology anyway, right? Making sure they have multiple uses and get us the most bang for our buck. Any of the options above would be a great choice, but earbuds will always be my number one.
