Oculus Quest

The best standalone VR headset

The Quest has a cord-free design and convincing hand tracking, so it’s easy to use and immersive, without needing an expensive PC.

Buying Options

$400* from Oculus
$540 from Amazon

*At the time of publishing, the price was 400.

Sensors built into the Oculus Quest headset pair with the Oculus Touch, our favorite VR controllers, to create a system that can track both your body and your hands as you move across a room. There are no external sensors to set up or wires to trip over. The fact that the Quest doesn’t require an expensive gaming PC or smartphone makes it a relatively inexpensive—but still exhilarating—way to play many of our favorite VR games.
