Best Headphones for Oculus Quest 2 Android Central 2020

While the Oculus Quest 2 has speakers built into its straps, many users may prefer to use a headset to make their audio more controlled and contained. The Oculus Quest 2 has just a single audio jack on its left side, which is different than the two jacks that were on the original Oculus Quest. While you can't use split earphones, there are still some excellent options. Here are the best headphones for the Oculus Quest 2.
