Your WMR headset doesn't have to sit on the floor or hang from a hook when not in use. With the MindStand X from TreeCloud9, you can display any WMR headset and keep cables under wraps. The stand folds down when not in use, making it easy to tote with you when you hit the road.

Quick cleanup: Microfiber cloths

Editor's choice

There's nothing worse than foggy or dirty WMR lenses. They obstruct your ability to focus on the action in the headset properly, and frankly, they're just gross. These cloths from SecurOMax won't scratch your WMR headset's lenses and you'll be glad you have them on hand after a couple of sessions.

Compact protection: Navitech rugged hard case

If you want to keep things portable while you're carrying VR with you, this hard case from Navitech should do the trick. It has room for the WMR headset and controllers, a sturdy zipper keeps the case closed, and it has a mesh pocket inside the lid for cables, cloths, and anything else you need to bring along.

Clear vision: Jaws Quick Spit anti-fog spray

Dealing with foggy WMR lenses is a serious pain and a problem that affects a large majority of VR users. Heading into the WMR headset can be a physical endeavor, and having what is essentially a hot mask over your face doesn't lend itself well to ventilation. To help cut down on the fog that ruins games and causes frustration, try applying some anti-fog spray to your lenses once in a while.

USB-A extension: Cable Matters six-foot USB cable

Extending the USB-A cable of your WMR headset is touchy due to USB controllers and cables not always working together, but this option from Cable Matters has been used successfully by plenty of people. It's cheap, but it adds six feet to the cable to better let you move around your VR space.

If we're making some suggestions

The above roundup of accessories can complement any WMR headset, no matter the make, so you should no doubt find a few options that you need to improve your time in VR. However, if you're wondering where to start, we recommend checking out the TreeCloud9 MindStand X, which provides a portable mounting solution for your headset. This keep it off the ground and out of the way of harm, and it folds down for easy transportation when you take your gear to a friend's place.

A six-pack of microfiber cloths from SecurOMax is likewise recommended, as your headset will get sweaty and your lenses will get gunked up during regular play. Those lenses are precious, so treat them with care!
