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


#8

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:

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.


#20

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…


#21

Actually I love the use your own audio head set think
I got the odyssey and while having good audio, the headphone don’t reach to my ears in a comfortable way - so I would rather use my senheiser. So it’s actually cool we will get both.


#22

i think i might find some kind of closure with HTC in smashing my vive with a hammer and dragging the DAS out of its corpse.


#23

Hmmm. This somehow feels like the right approach… I think I’ll do that, too. :hammer: :smiley:


#24

To avoid detrimental vr withdrawals; reccommend waiting until pimax arrives.

For best results have Vive dig it’s own grave. :beers::joy::+1::sparkles:


#25

No, I recommend to keep it and use it once in a month to shiver in horror as to which SDE etc. you had to endure in the early days…

No, on a serious note, I will keep both my broken-under-warranty-yet-not-repaired-Vive and my Rift as a fond reminder of how it all started. Can‘t blame them for progress being made later (and I don‘t own the Vive Pro - that one would deserve being snashed for bringing little improvements with an exceptional price tag)

looking at the clips on the headset and how the man used Velcro, i have an idea on how pimax might design the new head strap.

a lamp shape is a circle cylinder. the mod to this would be to cut the cylinder in half vertically.

this cylinder straight edges are attached to two pieces, one piece per side, the pieces on the cylinder are not movable.

on the headset are two pegs, one peg per side, and they are immovable.

the pieces on the cylinder are stuck to the pegs on the headset using Velcro.
also the pieces on the cylinder encase the peg on the headset so the headset isnt flimsy.

this way the cylinder can be at different parts of the peg for the left and right side, to suit unsymmetrical faces.

and on the back of the cylinder is a strap to keep the headset from falling off the head.

the cylinder might not fit on the head size so its split vertically down the middle and the two pieces of the cylinder are attached using another strap.


#27

Yes. Why they couldn’t just copy the Oculus or WMR headstraps

Pimax Eric got to try one more than a year ago :wink:
