MRTV: How To Attach Deluxe Audio Strap To Pimax - The Frankenpimax Tutorial


#1

Hi community,

some of you asked me how to attach the Deluxe Audio Strap to the Pimax 8k / 5k(plus). I have made a video for you, it is really simple.

Enjoy!

Bye, Sebastian

Surprisingly simple with a bit of velcro. Am looking forward to news about my free audio strap and when that is likely to be ready to ship as well.


#3

Wait the pimax won’t ship with the improved strap? God damn ittt any release date on this? @xunshu

Please someone tell me the improved strap will come with headphones atleast lol?


#4

All the reviewers are getting the cloth strap so far and we haven’t seen any signs of the strap, so yeah I think it is a fair bet to say it isn’t coming with the headset because it is not done yet.


#5

i receive this knowledge gratefully.

edit

you have terrifying faith in velcro.

Later as all the previous updates said.

The one thing I worry about with the pimax “halo” style deluxe audio headstrap is that you cannot press the hmd up to your eyes as needed. Otherwise the halo design is great.


#9

Go to a hardware store and get “industrail grade” Velcro. It is stronger than you will ever need for a hmd. I’ve used it for holding 5-10lbs over years without needing to replace it.

@mixedrealityTV @SweViver
Hey Sweviver! Exactly what you have asked for! Now it should be even more pleasant to do your M2-review. thx Sebastian!


#11

When i was working at one factory they used loop to loop instead of the fuzzy side.


#12

Keep your sexual work relations to yourself please :slight_smile:


#13

@mixedrealityTV That’s an awesome mod! Thanks for the tip!

@Heliosurge
It might be a little bit (too?) early, but maybe we should allready open a new thread “Modding 5K/5K+/8K” or maybe even a modding thread for each iteration of headset?
This modding by Sebastian would be a great first post! What do yo think? Greets


#15

Could be an idea for sure. Hope pimax starts working on forum structure. This 8k category for example should be Renamed to 8k Kickstarter & a new Category for the 8k with sub categories if doable.


#16

So this strongly suggests that Sebastian already knows that Pimax will be shipping the 8K with the crappy first-gen headstrap even though one of the first kickstarter stretch goals was a deluxe headstrap, and Pimax announced like 6 months ago that they were already working on it. :frowning:


#17

Deluxe headband not ready til later see update.

That’s not new info. Pimax has said the that deluxe strap will be shipped separately, at a later time than the headset. I’m more than a little bummed out by this. One of the things I want in a headset is good, comfortable, built in head phones (and a microphone, which IS already integrated into the headset).


#19

The microphone is there. :wink: You can apparently in the meantime use the earphones jack on the headset.

I will definitly try out the frankenpimax. I hope I can detach the DAS from the vive without breaking it. I remember there was some force needed to attach it…
