VR accessory company VR Cover announced that a version of their popular interface and foam replacement for VR headsets is now available for the Valve Index.

The new Index set includes a facial interface, along with two PU leather memory foam replacements, which can be used to replace the standard Index interface and the cushion that sits between the headset and your face. The basic set retails for $49, but is currently discounted down to $39.20.
The kit also includes two “side wedges”, which aren’t found in any other kits. These provide some extra cushioning on the side of the interface, if that’s something that works for you. You can watch a video of the Index interface and replacement cushions in action here.
These interface and foam replacements work especially great if you’re playing more active games on your device. They can be easily cleaned, and the PU leather means that none of your sweat is absorbed into the cushion sitting against your face. If multiple people are swapping a headset, VR Cover replacements are great to quickly swap in and out so that you’re not sharing the same sweaty headset cushion with someone else.
Beyond the Valve Index, VR Cover sets have also been available for other headset for a while now as well, such as the Oculus Quest and the HTC Vive. You can also find covers that slip over existing interfaces and cushions, such as this one for the Oculus Rift S.
