What are the best foam covers for HTC Vive?
The foam cushion on your HTC Vive is pretty comfortable as is, but that doesn't mean you can't go with a better option. If you sweat a lot, there are waterproof options, and if you watch a lot of movies, you can get something soft and comfortable. Here are the best foam cushion replacements for your HTC Vive.
VR Cover sport
Rather than a complete replacement for the foam on your Vive, this sport option from VR Cover simply slips over the existing foam for a great waterproof solution. It's made from a leather-like material that won't get sopping wet when the action gets intense, and you can just wipe it down with antibacterial wipes when you're finished.
This is great when you're sharing the Vive with friends or if you like to get right into the action — just try to play Holopoint without getting sweaty.
Lunies disposable face covers
If sharing your Vive with other people gives you the willies, these disposable face covers from Lunies should do the trick. Before handing over the Vive, just stick one of these onto the foam and you won't have to worry about sweat and oil. When you're finished, just pull it off and toss it out — no antibacterial wipes, no sharing bacteria.
This 50-pack will last you quite awhile and only costs about $20.
VR Cover soft cotton
Those of you who like to sit back and relax with a movie in your Vive understand how comfort is way more important here than when gaming — the regular Vive foam can get annoying when you aren't focused on a game. This soft cotton replacement from VR Cover is the solution.
It completely replaces the stock foam, and the soft cotton won't irritate your skin. It's packed with memory foam to fit over your face comfortably, and you can wash it in your washing machine. Note that those of you with glasses might have a hard time fitting into this cover.
VIO VR foam pad
Don't feel like spending upwards of $30? The VIO VR foam pad is a great replacement that only costs about $12.
The PU leather can be wiped down between uses to prevent bacteria buildup, and the mesh outer layer keeps your face cooler when you get into the game. Keep in mind that some people with glasses won't be able to fit this foam replacement.
HTC foam replacement
Love the stock HTC Vive foam and can't see a reason to fix something that isn't broken? Good news; you can pick up replacements right from HTC. This pack comes with two covers that are exactly like what you have right now on your Vive — same foam, same velcro, same wide fit that won't hinder those of you with glasses.
Get two new face cushions for about $25.
