While the Oculus Quest utilizes the same environmental audio system as the Oculus Go, many users may prefer to use a headset, so their audio is more controlled and contained. The Oculus Quest provides two audio jacks on either side of the Quest. Below, we give our top recommendations for Quest-compatible headphones.
The AfterShokz Sportz Titanium conduction headset has a unique structure that will stay firmly in place around your head, just over your Oculus Quest straps. Conduction headphones bypass your eardrum and send sound directly to the cochlea, which makes these ideal for someone with impaired hearing.
Stylish and affordable
Notable for it's enhanced bass, this pair of headphones is perfect for VR games with a high depth of sound, such as Beat Saber. They come with a tangle-free carrying pouch so your wires shouldn't get tangled up when you take your Quest on the go.

The Oculus Quest has built-in speakers that work well, but headphones provide another level of immersion. They're also a good way to keep audio private. The AfterShokz Sportz Titanium are a good set of headphones to pair with the Oculus Quest because they wrap around your head and don't interfere with the headset's straps.
If you prefer an over-ear design, we recommend the OneOdio Over-Ear DJ Stereo Headphones. The over-the-ear design will prevent external sounds interfering with your gaming, and give you the best bass compared to earbuds.
