It's not hyperbole to say Meta almost never discounts the Quest 2, which makes today's Cyber Monday bundle so special. You get the 128GB headset for $50 off or the 256GB headset for $70 off, plus free codes for both Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR. For a little comparison, all we got last year was a gift card.
So if you're looking to get started in the world of VR, now's the time to start. But if you already have your Meta Quest 2, or you're shopping for someone else with their own Quest 2 headset, you'll find a bunch of replacement straps, face covers, charging docks, cases, headphones, and more discounted for Cyber Monday. Accessories can add up to hundreds of dollars at full price, so it makes sense to hunt for the best deals now.
But first, here is the main Quest 2 deal you need to know about: the Quest 2 is $50-$70 off depending on how much storage you need, and comes with both Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 VR, two of the best Quest 2 games that normally cost $70 in total. All that saved money can go right into buying more games and accessories!
Black Friday may be over, but you can still save $50 on the 128GB model or $70 on the 256GB model, plus receive two popular Quest 2 games for free: Beat Saber and Resident Evil 4 if you buy now.
We think most people only need 128GB, as you can delete games you've finished without losing your cloud saves. 256GB is the better deal but it'll still cost you $70 more; only hardcore gamers planning to buy dozens of games or upload movie files will need it.
With that out of the way, here are the rest of the great Quest 2 Cyber Monday deals you need to know about.
Quest 2 Cyber Monday deals: Accessories
We won't waste your time, so we'll start with our five favorite Cyber Monday Quest 2 accessory deals we've spotted:
Anker Charging Dock for Quest 2:
$99 $68.99 at Amazon
This is the best Quest 2 accessory you can buy; the only problem is how expensive it (normally) is. Our review explains all the benefits of using this dock instead of a charging cable: it keeps your headset and controllers charged, and protects against overcharging or overcurrent so your battery isn't damaged if you leave it charging for days. And it gives you a cool way to present your headset, assuming you have room for it in your home.
Logitech G333 VR Wired Earphones:
$50 $19.99 at Amazon
The official Quest 2 earphones, they have custom-length cords that ensure nothing dangles from the headset. They have dual drivers dedicated to mids/highs and bass, giving you solid audio while ensuring anyone else in the room isn't annoyed or distracted by whatever Beat Saber soundtrack you're listening to.
KIWI Design Quest 2 elite strap with battery:
$90 $72.79 at Amazon
The KIWI strap gives you an impressive 6400mAh battery, larger than the 4,676mAh you get with the official battery, so it'll more than double your play sessions. We tested it and found it evenly distributes the weight of the headset and gives you plenty of padding, plus a comfortably tight fit.
You can also get the more comfortable non-battery version for just $37.99 (18% off).
KIWI design Upgraded Controller Grips:
$28.99 $19.99 at Amazon
Want a more comfortable grip on your Quest 2 Touch controllers, including knuckle grips that keep it attached to your hands instead of relying on the wrist attachments? These are some of our favorite Quest 2 hand straps, with battery slots you can much more easily swap in a fresh set than with the stock controllers.
VOKOO Link Cable 16ft:
$20 $15.99 at Amazon
The official Quest 2 Link cable costs $79, so we usually recommend some cheaper Link cable alternatives if you're at all interested in playing PC VR games and want a more consistent connection than the wireless Air Link option. The VOKOO is our favorite because it is long enough for any game and offers high-speed charging and data transfer.
Those are our favorite Cyber Monday Quest 2 accessories deals, but there are plenty of other options to consider.
By default, the Quest 2 comes with an uncomfortable strap that puts too much weight on the front of your face, plus a relatively short battery life. You can solve both of these problems with an official Elite Strap with Battery, but it's expensive and not currently on sale. Thankfully, there are some great Elite Strap alternatives that we love that do have Cyber Monday discounts.
YOGES Quest 2 head strap:
$25 $21.19 at Amazon
15% off isn't much when the price is this low, but that's the point: this is the most comfortable head strap we've tested for much less than competing brands, with great weight distribution and "pillowy softness" according to our reviewer. It doesn't have a battery pack, but if you're fine keeping your play sessions at just 2 hours instead of 4, this is a fantastic option.
BOBOVR M2 Plus Head Strap:
$40 $31.99 at Amazon
Unfortunately our favorite head strap, the BOBOVR M2 Pro with swappable battery packs, is out of stock at the moment. But if you can do without the extra battery life, BOBOVR makes a great halo strap with balanced weight and a tight fit, that will let you move your head without fear of the Quest 2 sliding around.
Geekvr Comfort Battery Head Strap:
$70 $42.99 at Amazon
A new favorite of our VR nerd on staff Nick Sutrich, the Geekvr head strap is very lightweight and has a swappable battery design, meaning you can take one battery out when it dies and put in a new one, so you don't ever have to stop playing. You don't even need to screw the battery in; you just drop it in!
The Quest 2 rests firmly on your face and forehead, which can cause sweat and skin irritation. That, in turn, causes lens fogging due to how heat rises inside the headset. What you need is a replacement face cover that offers better padding and air circulation.
KIWI Design Facial Interface:
$40 $32.79 at Amazon
This face cover set is our top pick regardless of the deal price. In our tests, the four vents (two each on the top and bottom) did the best job of preventing fogged-up lenses, no matter the temperature of your room. And the new padding is "extremely comfortable."
