HTC Vive Pro Bundle: Design

There are volume regulators, headset fits really good on your head, what I can’t say about headphones. Headphones not really good but at the same time they are not really bad and it is useful because of the volume controller on headphones. They fit bad it can be different to you.
Also, there is a new suspension system, which is holding a head much better, than the first/original HTC Vive. It also protects you from headaches, which you can get after playing time sessions, unlike the original Vive.
In the package of the new Vive Pro Bundle, you can find a new and upgraded cable. This cable much better and lighter than the previous one. Also, you can find new rubber protectors, what defends your eyes from light while gaming.
