100% agree. I don't know what they were thinking with the audio on this thing.

Since the halo ring is detachable altogether, I doubt it will take long until somebody comes out with a desirable headmount solution.

I don't think they were (thinking). Shame they went that route after the good sound of the Rift CV1.
I will be using Earbuds with mine. Just hope the audio driver of the Rift S is decent.

Any idea what the name was for the clip on earphones shown on the review vid?

that's a very generic review, I'd be more interested to know

what is the field-of-view?
what kind of screen door effect did you experience if any?
What is the absolute resolution?
Are the lenses smooth or fresnel? (it makes a difference)
are there light bleeds?
What is the comfort level?
What is the IPD adjustment range?
what is the absolute frames per second?
What were the DCS settings you used when you reviewed it?
What video card and computer set up were you using when you tested it?

how does it compare with existing products from Pimax, Odyssey, XTAL, etc. they didn't pay you for the review but they sent you free product. That alone can skew a reviewer's perspective.

you're asking the user base to consider this product which is a very expensive purchase. But there is no real substantive information in the initial review. don't mean to be so critical but this is one of those times when being critical has merit. Don't take it personally.

I found that review to be typical of that channel . Not worth the time .

I agree the toyboy of the 2 in the review seems like he's not really interested in the PC.

For users that plan to use Rift on HDMI or thunderbolt port, there are some bad news....

I hope this info can be useful before buy :-)

Good heads up

Yep, HDMI can't handle that kind of resolution/ frequency.
My 1080p monitor already need DVI to use 144Hz.

Luckily my GTX 1080TI has 2 Display Port, and my laptop has mini display port. But I don't expect much from the laptop GTX 1060. DCS VR optimization would need to be really good
