HTC today announced the Vive Pro 2, an upgraded version of the Vive Pro headset which first launched in 2018.

The new version of the headset brings a huge upgrade to resolution, along with a boost to field-of-view, while retaining compatibility with previously released accessories like the Vive Wireless Adapter and Vive Facial Tracker.

The headset itself will sell for $800 with a release date of June 3rd, while a full kit including controllers and base stations will be priced at $1,400 with a release date in July.

That gives the headset a class-leading resolution, handily beating out headsets like Quest 2 at 3.5MP (1,832 × 1,920) per-eye, and Reverb G2 at 4.7MP (2,160 × 2,160) per-eye.

While the Vive Pro 2 internals have been upgraded, the outer headset is largely the same design as the Vive Pro, which has proven to be a well designed bit of hardware with great ergonomics and smart cable management.

The headphones are also the same as the original headset which we didn’t find to be the best at launch, though they saw some post-launch improvements which brought them up to par.

Vive Pro 2 will continue to lean on HTC’s Vive wand controllers.

Those opting for the ‘full kit’ version of the headset will receive the Vive wand controllers and base stations, both supporting SteamVR Tracking 2.0.

That of course means that you can use any SteamVR Tracking compatible controller with the headset, including the Valve Index controllers if you so choose?

While many consumer headsets have moved away from the Vive wand and their large trackpads—instead opting for thumbsticks, buttons, and grip triggers—HTC says some still prefer the wand-style controllers, especially in enterprise-use cases where they can be easier to learn for users who aren’t used to gaming controllers.

Vive Pro 2 will have compatibility with Vive accessories like the Wireless Adapter and recently released Facial Tracker.

The Vive Wireless Adapter will support up to 90Hz on Vive Pro 2, though it isn’t clear if it will support the headset’s full resolution (we’ve reached out to HTC for more details).

Of course the headset will also support any accessory in the SteamVR Tracking ecosystem, like the Vive Tracker or Tundra Tracker.

The headset-only version of Vive Pro 2 has a release date of June 3rd and a price of $800.

The full kit version of Vive Pro 2 (which includes the headset, controllers, and base stations) will be released in July and priced at $1,400!

I liked the headset but that thing is really outdated now, extremely blurry in comparison to modern headsets like the G2.

They have 1st gen controllers and all of the exciting stuff that has been introduced since the first Vive has not been integrated tightly into this headset.

It’s a shame, if they released this at $1,000 with new controllers, base stations, with wireless included, it’d be a slam dunk.

It’s an impressive headset, no doubt and not arguing that, but they NEEDED to price this at $1,000 max WITH basestations, NEW controllers, and wireless included to compete with the Index market.

I especially like how it’s compatible with the existing wireless adapter instead of requiring a replacement.

It’s an impressive headset, no doubt, but shipping at $1,400 for newcomers with the old wands and without a wireless adapter make it a tough sale.

Still the same bulky vive but without oled and still those those horrible wand controllers

This does look like a very solid headset
