We’re happy to announce the release of a new super-soft foam replacement for the Samsung Odyssey Windows Mixed Reality device. The foam is made with ‘Velour’ fabric, feels amazing to touch and even better on your face. It offers a similar experience to the standard foam in terms of field of view but you’ll be wanting to play for even longer with the upgrade in comfort. They are designed to feel great while retaining a high level hygiene.
Samsung should be applauded for their efforts to create arguably one of the best VR headsets available right now. But that’s not to say there’s improvements to be made. After considerable feedback and testing we believe our foam replacements will give you the absolute most comfortable VR experience possible.
The materials used are perfect for absorbing sweat. If you like to work out in VR and don’t enjoy the sweaty PU leather feeling then these replacements are ideal. They’re also targeted towards the more casual user who will be watching movies and using the Windows Mixed Reality desktop apps.February 12, 2018

Ever thought about the steps it takes to manufacture certain items? Take a behind-the-scenes look into the manufacturing process of the latest VR Cover products. In this day and age, almost everything that is created is done so by autonomous machinery and while it is efficient, we appreciate the human-touch involved in every step from raw material to finished product.December 2, 2017
Introducing the VR Cover Windows Mixed Reality range. Our PU leather foam replacements are currently available for the Acer, HP and Lenovo headsets with support for the Dell Visor coming soon. As always, they can wiped clean with antibacterial wipes between uses which is essential if you plan on demoing at events or to friends and family.
Due to the similar dimensions between the three devices our foam replacements are cross-compatible so if you’re a developer who owns more than one, you are in luck.
We should also mention the issue of light leak on some of the Windows MR headsets. The Acer and Lenovo headsets come with stock face foam that pushes in between the lenses and up again your nose which helps to prevent light leak. However, this is not a perfect solution and for many users can cause discomfort and pressure on the nose. For this reason we have decided to go ‘nose-free’ with our foam replacements.
Depending on your face shape and size this may mean more light leak through the nose, something that can be resolved by wearing the headband higher on the back of your head enabling you to create an angle that reduces light leak and improves immersion. If you prefer to see a little of the real world, try wearing the headband lower on the back of your head.
Foam Replacements for the Acer, HP and Lenovo Windows MR headsets are now available in sets containing two pads for $29.00.October 25, 2017
