It's important to find the shape that is suitable for your face. ZyberVR’s 6-in-1 PU Leather Face Cover for Oculus Quest 2 has two sizes of silicone nose pads that you can choose from to fit you better and stop light leakage so you can fully immerse yourself in VR games and movies. Using these kinds of virtual reality accessories will give you a wider view. The stock foam pad and the thin pad both have about the same thickness. The thick pad provides a little bit more comfort, but it also makes wearing glasses more difficult because it narrows the side gap for your face.

3. Comfort

The adjustable design is better if you have not only one person using the headset.

4. Breathability

Consider a face cover with a foam pad and breathable holes on the bottom if you plan to do fun VR fitness workouts. This lowers temperatures and enables the sponge to restore more quickly. The strong facial interface's vent design offers greater ventilation and light leakage. The VR glasses won't fog up even after vigorous workouts.

The best VR face cover is the one that is easy to clean with wet cloth or any antibacterial hand wipe. Non-abrasive antibacterial wipes are advised, but they might only be able to remove stains from the surface itself and not from the stock foam.
