CES 2018 kicked off with a big announcement in the VR world: HTC is releasing a brand new headset this year dubbed the Vive Pro that sports integrated high-quality audio, crisp 3K visuals, dual microphones for noise cancellation, and more comfortable weight distribution. You can read more about the Vive Pro and the upcoming second generation of base stations at the corresponding links.
We got the chance to go hands-on with the Vive Pro earlier today and came away impressed with what we saw and even took the time to take some pics showing the old standard Vive and the new Vive Pro side-by-side. In the shots below you can also sneak a few looks at the official Vive Wireless Adapter, which is also on display at CES this week.
Visually the designs are similar, but the new Vive Pro is much more comfortable and of much higher quality. As soon as you pick it up and put it on you can immediately tell the difference.
We’ll have our in-depth hands-on impressions with the headset and the new wireless adapter tomorrow, but for now these up close and person shots will just have to tide you over.
What do you think about the new Vive Pro and the improved specs? Is it enough to entice you for an upgrade? Let us know down in the comments below!
