Best Gear for VR Games - Gear up, Game On

New week, new game genre! Join us as we spotlight the most immersive kind of games -- the VR genre.

We're kicking off the second week of Game On with a genre that probably doesn't get talked about as much as it should -- VR. We're big fans of virtual experiences that help us get immerse even closer. Reality is not a limit.

Remember, each week throughout the summer, as we celebrate various game genres, we have millions of free codes to giveaway through our SteelSeries Game On page, in addition to our VR Gleam giveaways, so make sure to stay tuned to our channels.

Some of our favorite VR games include Beat Saber and Tetris Effect. Sound is extremely important in both of these, maybe Beat Saber even more so. And you already know that the best place to get great sound for VR is from our gaming headsets. There's also another option for enhancing your gaming space from KontrolFreek. Here are our recommendations:

Arctis 7P+

Arctis 7P+

The Arctis 7P+ is a fantastic choice for the Meta Quest 2 (formerly Oculus Quest 2). It's extremely easy to set up -- all you need to do is plugin that USB-C dongle that comes with it to invite award-winning Arctis sound to your VR experience. The Arctis 7P+ uses stellar, top-of-the-line 2.4GHz wireless to deliver superb quality, lag-free sound to your ears.

While you enjoy the signature Arctis sound enhancing your VR experience, stay immersed for 30 hours, with the option to fast charge your battery quickly, giving 3 hours of use after just 15 minutes.

We highly recommend the award-winning Arctis 7P+ for VR gaming.

There's something special about having a dedicated space for VR gaming. Even if you don't see the lights while playing, it's cool to have a dedicated "virtual space entrance chamber" to fully immerse yourself in your favorite platform.

Enter the KontrolFreek Gaming Lights. Available in two sizes (9 or 12 feet), these always include a USB power strip and a LED strip. They also come with an adhesive backing that lets you easily attach to walls to outline your VR space, or to personalize your desk, monitor, or any other elements. The lights are bendable and can turn corners for easy setup.

Backlighting your monitor can also be helpful to reduce the contrast from your monitor, which improves image quality and reduces eye strain.
