  1. Another hard lesson that I learned I forgot to share: I eventually figured out that you can physically remove the ear pieces without damaging the headset, they basically just clip on and off. You have to be gentle when unclipping them to avoid damaging them. And they connect to the headset via a hidden headphones jack. So if you want to plug in better quality headphones, you are able to do it. I replaced them with a set of wireless headphones that cup over my ears but after a month I put the hanging ear pieces back in because as hot and sweaty as you'll get playing exercise programs like beat
  2. Hello, I'm sort of a noob to VR technology in general. I chose to get the Vive Cosmos Elite as my very first VR. After doing lots of research in how to get started in VR and to figure out what I'd like to experience, etc. I ended up also getting a pair of Valve Index Controllers to use instead of the vive controllers that came with my Vive Cosmos elite kit (VR helmet, 2 base stations, 2 VR controllers). And after messing around with the technology, I decided to experiment with making the helmet wireless so that I can enjoy beat saber a little more, so I purchased the wireless adapter that come
  3. However, I found this on vive's website: https://www.vive.com/us/support/cosmos-elite/category_howto/can-different-versions-of-base-stations-be-used.html I think I may have been misunderstanding what you were saying, C.T. From what I understand now(that I didn't before), is that the incompatibility comes when trying to use 1.0 and 2.0 base stations together, but 2.0 base stations are compatable with my cosmos elite. so bottom line, I will either have to do ONLY 1.0 base stations, or ONLY 2.0 base stations....but the only reason I should spend the extra money to get 2.0 base stations(
  4. Here I copied and pasted what I read on steam's website: Valve Index Base Stations are compatible with any Headset featuring support for SteamVR Version 2.0 Tracking including the Valve Index Headset and HTC Vive Pro Headset. Valve Index Base Stations can be used with any Controllers featuring support for SteamVR Version 2.0 Tracking including Valve Index Controllers and HTC Vive Pro Controllers. Valve Index Base Stations are not compatible with the original standard edition of HTC Vive products. Here's the link where I read it: https://store.steampowered.com/app/10595
  5. well that's fantastic! I'm already using valve index controllers because the vive controllers suck in comparison. Yes I did get the full cosmos elite package. I even have a wireless adapter and 2 power banks. I do have some tracking issues with my 2.0 base stations. I tried covering up my big screen tv that I use as a monitor because of it being a reflective service and it helped but it didn't completely fix my tracking problems. I'm hoping that if I got 4 of those 2.0 base stations that I can put one on each corner of my play area, thus giving my controllers direct line of sight no matter how
  6. I have the vive cosmos elite now and I'm loving it. I had no idea it was compatible with 2.0 base stations. even customer service was telling me I can only use 1.0 base stations on my cosmos elite. If what you say is true, does that mean that if I were to get 4 of the 2.0 base stations, that I can use them all at once just like a valve index?
  7. After screwing around with the wireless kit for the cosmos elite(wireless kit came in the mail today), I discovered that the headphones that are a part of the cosmos elite headset are not LITERALLY a part of the headset! It only looked that way thanks to some very good cable management engineering by the vive engineers! Just like any other pair of headphones, they are connected to two wires, that are connected to a single wire, that plugs into the VR headset's hidden headphones jack inside the VR helmet. You can only see this hidden headphones jack after removing the facial interface. Af
  8. The only thing I don't like about the cosmos elite is the fact that the headphones hover next to my ears. They work and do their job just fine, but I'm used to the feel of my wireless gaming headset that I've been using. Is it possible to use my wireless gaming headset along with my cosmos elite? The reason I'm bringing this up is because the wireless kit for the cosmos elite will be delivered at my house in a few days, thus making my VR headset wireless, and was curious if I can use the cosmos elite along with my wireless headset. And yes, I know that there's already a mic built into my VR he
  9. Just purchased the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite as my very first headset! WOOT. Was going to be the oculus but then there was that issue with facebook so I cancelled that preorder....then it was going to be the valve index but I wasn't gonna get it till sometime next year so I cancelled that pre order. I ordered the HTC today and folks in chat said I should have it around wednesday next week! Finally, something that I can purchase in 2020 at normal price and not through a scalper. I see a lot of valve index customers getting an HTC headset this year because of how oculus and valve index are doing thi
  10. nevermind, I didn't know there was a "contact vive via chat" feature on vive's website. I was able to get all my questions answered. Here are the answers I got to these questions incase anyone else has these: 1. Vive did have a similar back order issue but things are back to normal. It's normal(before covid) type of waiting when purchasing htc vive vr headsets directly from the vive website. 2. yes i can use valve index knuckle controllers 3. 1.0 base stations are not compatable with 2.0 base stations. 2.0 base stations will not work with valve index cosmos elite vr headsets, w
  11. With it being 2020, I was originally going to get an oculus quest 2 as my very first VR headset, but then due to some things I didn't like about it, I decided I wanted a valve index....but after learning that unless I want to pay 2,200.00 for it on amazon, the best way to get the index at 999.00 is to place an order on steam and hope that I'll be able to get my hands on it sometime December, January 2021 or even later than that, but I was able to get a pair of knuckle controllers. And the base stations, you can only get via getting the valve index kit because the base stations are NEVER in sto
