Mantis VR adds integrated headphones to any PlayStation VR

Mantis #VR adds integrated headphones to any PlayStation VR

  • But that’s where Bionik’s Mantis VR headphones come in.
  • If you’ve used an Oculus Rift with its integrated headphones, the Mantis headphones are nearly identical.
  • And you can still hear the game audio with the Mantis headphones tilted away from your ear — you’re just letting in more room audio.
  • Even if I got the new PSVR with the built in earbuds, I’d still want the Mantis because I don’t like things in my ears and these look better.
  • That alone makes the Mantis VR headphones worth $50.

PlayStation VR is the most comfortable high-end virtual reality headset, but its lack of integrated headphones holds it back. Sony is planning to address with a new PSVR model that will include attached earbuds, but that could get groddy if you share the device with enough friends and family. But that’s where Bionik’s Mantis VR headphones come in. They snap onto any PSVR and act like integrated headphones, and you don’t even have to scrape them against your earwax.

The Mantis headphones are now available for $50, and I’ve spent some time with them. They sound nice, and they complete the PSVR. The Mantis is also easy to attach, and they hold securely without you having to get out any tools or even make much of an effort.

If you’ve used an Oculus Rift with its integrated headphones, the Mantis headphones are nearly identical. They hand down from the side and directly over your ears. You can adjust the position to aim the sound directly at your ears. The Mantis also works like a flap where it can angle down against your ears or angle up to let you still hear the world around you. That is my favorite part because I like to hear the people around me or if a baby is crying, but I don’t like the way it feels to have traditional headphones pressing against my head while I’m wearing a VR head-mounted display. That’s uncomfortable…
