Sony Mantis vr headphone is a great option.

I clipped them on my rift s and omg for me they sounded good. No headache or pain getting in and out of VR. They are similar to how headphones on cv1 are attached. I know oc may announce an even better solution but for the s and even the quest it's a good option.

    Guess you mean these.

    They're not by Sony, but by a company named Bionik.
    Still, thanks for the heads up.

    Are these the bionik headphones? that company make Rift faceplates I see, so wonder if they're tweaking the mantis design for the S... well, maybe just a black version would do it!

    They are made for the playstation vr but work great on the rift s and quest and go. They are the mantis bionik.they dont come in black. I'm not fashion conscious so I dont care that they are white. Check out YouTube videos.

    Yep, they seem pretty good... my OCD just has me wondering if they going to do black ones though! If they sound good though, that's really all that matters.

    how did you get these to fit? I almost had to break the clip to fit it on the Rift S
    Yeah back to using the vive ear buds :( I put the Mantis on my PSVR instead. It was affecting tightening my rift S.

    Hope Oculus comes out with an addon soon

    I'm bad as well at adding tech. I watched videos. When fitting it on the rift sit's best to start from bottom to top and make sure you are at the skinniest part of the halo strap. I felt if I could do it anyone can. It should fit tight but not to the point you feel like something will break. Sorry it didn't work for you. For me it was a gamechanger and no longer missed the cv1 audio setup

    Worked for me I just got mine today.

    Great fit as Inovator said bottom to top skinniest part but you can move em up.

    I also shifted the Strap retainer up abit to get them to fit on my ears. 

    WAAAGH!

    I've contacted bionik to asked if a Rift-S specific version of these headphones (i.e. black ones or with tweaked dimensions if necessary) are in the works.

    So now we have an Oculus HMD made by Lenovo that needs Sony headphones - can't help thinking of:

    I swear it works as it was made for the rift. I take my rift s on and off without having to adjust it each time. It's amazing and to me sounds great.. you should buy it on Amazon  then u can return it if necessary. But you will keep it most likely.

    yeah I know... black ones though would be great

    Nice not to have to do that plus I don't know what tolerances they design them to for eliminating risk of snapping the plastic for those who are a bit heavy handed clipping them on... there may be a fraction of a mm tweaking they'd want to do if the Sony halo isn't exactly the same as the Rift's.

    And the fact that they'd be advertised on the bionik website as Rift-S headphones will avoid any confusion or question of suitability, for all the people who don't frequent this wonderful forum. Or if they google Rift-S headphones... these would appear.

    I got some for my Rift S shortly after buying it. They were a bit of a tight fit but well worth it as they're lots better than the standard Rift S sound.

    I can't believe there is still no good solution. I bought regular headphones but they are a major major pain to deal with. 

    What about the Koss Porto + 3d printed holder option?

    The mantis is a really good solution. No pain whatsoever. But maybe at connect will have a more native solution
