The newest product from Facebook has been released some time ago. It is new VR set, that can give even better experience than ever before.
From quest 2 you can expect better quality of sound. In the headset, there are build-in speakers that gives an effect of 3D cinematic sound. It means that you can hear every sound from multiple directions, just like in movie theaters.
As we already know, this is Facebooks product, that’s why we shouldn’t be surprised that quest 2 requires logging in with your Facebook account. But with this feature you can easily connect with your friends or discover other people around the world. But to set up everything, you first need to download an Oculus App that is free. And after those steps you can experience great fun.

To connect your quest 2 to your computer, you need to buy additional The Oculus Link cable, that can give you amazing experience with beautiful graphics and heart-pounding gameplay.
