Attaching and adjusting the head strap
You can use the head strap to distribute the weight of the headset more evenly for a more comfortable fit. The head strap also helps to keep the headset in place when making quick, sudden movements while playing VR games.
Here's how to attach the head strap (if it's not attached to the headset) and adjust the fit:
Pull both sliders toward the middle of the head strap to lengthen it.
Remove the temples or battery cradle from your headset, then attach the rubber ends of the head strap to each side of the headset.
- Reattach the temples or battery cradle to your headset.
Put on your headset, position the head strap, and adjust the fit.
