I started with a Rift, then got the Samsung Odyssey (which I gave away) and then the Asus HMD (which I returned). I stayed with the Rift just because there was nothing better all said and done. Then I got the Pimax 5K+…
I bought the Vive Pro not just for the 2.0 base stations but also for the controllers and to try yet another HMD. I still have the Vive pro HMD, but nothing holds a candle to the Pimax 5K+. So the Rift and Vive Pro just sit on the shelf.
I’m using the 2.0 base stations and the Vive controllers with the Pimax 5K+. The Vive controllers work fine but I never use them as the only game worth playing in VR (IMHO) is Elite and I don’t use/need VR controllers for that. IMHO: All the rest of the VR games are just “eye candy” and not really good games in their own right.
I’m also using an “adapted” Vive Deluxe Audio headstrap on my Pimax to have locally mounted audio (vs earbuds, or even worse, headphones)
