These are a deal so I see no need for the amount of cold voting which has been done on this. Respect the deal posters people.

Yeah I dont get HUKD sometimes, these are £50 every where else and they are new to the market so I think this is a very good deal. Its a shame people might miss out on a deal because other people vote cold for unjust reasons, would be interesting to hear why people are voting cold.
I think the main thing is that they look like a generic pair. People have seen many headphones being labelled as specially designed but in essence any old set of buds would do the trick.

I don't know either way so I'll put in some heat for balance.
Haha just a standard generic set of buds, save yourself £30.00

The thing with these earbuds, is that they are designed by Oculus specifically for the Rift, they are attached directly to the rift in the same way as the headphones are now. That means there are no wires to get tangled up and that you dont need to change the default audio device when you want to switch between audio out on monitor/rift, which you would need to if use non oculus headphones or earbuds. They are just easier to use, yes there are other options but if someone wants the Oculus earbuds

I can understand if someone wanted to use their own headphones a lot people have headphones/earbuds/headsets that cost a lot of money and might sound a lot better, but if you wanted the Oculus earbuds integrated with the HMD then these are the only option and the price is a fair discount compared to buying them direct from Oculus.


For me its not about a deal going hot or cold, but more that people who would take advantage of a deal may miss it because people vote cold not knowing what they voting on makes the deal disappear before they get a chance to see it.

Did you buy them direct from Oculus or Amazon, I was on the fence wether to get them or not but I think at this price they worth having even if I end up keeping them as a spare.

I got them from GAME with some vouchers I had been given over christmas. Is a noticeable difference right away compared to the ones that come with the rift. They completely cut out any background noise that you would normally get as well. Worth it for this price.

I was going to say if you got them from Amazon you could always try and get them to refund the difference if you only got them last week.

Mine arrive tomorrow, looking forward to hearing the difference. I had a PSVR for a little while and I preferred the earbuds to the headphones so I think I will like them.
