HTC Vive Black Friday Deal Bundles Deluxe Audio Strap

Black Friday deals are starting to reveal themselves just a little ahead of time, and the HTC Vive is getting in on the action.

As spotted on Reddit, Office Depot will be selling a Black Friday Vive bundle that includes the headset at the normal price of $699 with the Deluxe Audio Strap thrown in for free. The strap usually costs $99, so this is a great chance to get the best possible setup for your Vive if you don’t already have the headset itself. You’ll of course also get a free pre-order for Fallout 4 VR, which hits in December, but that comes with every Vive purchase right now.

For those that don’t know, the Audio Strap includes integrated earphones for your Vive along with an overall sturdier design that supports the headset better. I was pretty fond of it when I tried it out for a week earlier this year.

We’re not sure if Office Depot will be the only one offering this type of deal this Black Friday, or if Vive itself has a wider plan to implement this bundle across the US, but we’re hoping the latter.

This isn’t the first Black Friday deal we’ve seen; earlier this week we reported that one retailer will be chopping a massive $100 off of the price of Sony’s PlayStation VR, taking it to just $299. We predict lots of people are going to be buying VR headsets over the next few weeks.
