While the Oculus Quest 2 has built-in speakers, they’re not designed for proper surround sound. You can plug in any 3.5mm headphones — or some USB-C headphones — but most headphones’ cords are too long and will dangle annoyingly from the headset. Your old Quest 1 headphones won’t work, nor will wireless earbuds. We’ve collected the best Meta Quest 2 headphones designed specifically for the headset.

Many VR fans prefer over-ear to in-ear headphones for VR for enveloping sound, but action or exercise games really benefit from letting your ears breathe. So we’ve chosen the Logitech G333s — designed specifically for the Quest 2 — for our top slot. These earphones offer solid audio performance for a lower price than most hardcore headphones and mods and are easier to take out quickly when you need to talk to someone in the room.
