An unofficial poll to find out the distribution of IDP of Oculus users in the forum.
This poll is anonymous. Since I am limited to 10 poll questions, I had to add ranges to the poll questions corresponding to the 1, 2, 3 settings indicated in Quest 2.

    I don't care if anyone knows. My IPD is around 69ish from several personal measurements...never professional. Depends on the headset what setting I run though. On my O+ I'm right around 69 and it's great and clear. On Index I was more comfortable at 70-71. On CV1 it's actually more comfortable maxed out lol. I guess from the large sweet spot.

    About 69 for me too. The Go and Rift-S are usable, but I can feel them not quite supporting me as well as the CV1 and Quest do.

    Mine is about 72, going by the old DK2 measuring tool, as well as my own self-measurement using the mirror-and-ruler method. I use my CV1 and Quest at max setting.

    I had to add ranges to the poll questions corresponding to the 1, 2, 3 settings indicated in Quest 2.
    We don't actually know what IPD ranges the Quest 2 settings represent, do we? We can assume that '2' has the lenses at 64 mm, but '1' and '3' are anyone's guess. I think 60 and 68 are likely possibilities--if the lenses accommodate a +/-2mm range within their sweet spots, then those values would give continuous coverage from 58 to 70 mm. I would love to see them go wider, if the new lenses can cover more area.

    Can't believe that there are so many of you with such BIG heads!!! 😲

    64mm for me 😁

    Mine is 63.94 mm, measured by an optician using advanced equipment ;)
    Fun thing, after years of practice, 64 mm in CV1 always was best, quite awesome job by Oculus. Steam needs similar calibration tools.

    Not sure head size matters ;)

    I hope 23&me finds a genetic link to IPD. Most of my relatives have a smaller IPD than me (71mm).

    67 for me. Good survey and I'm surprised no-one's done this poll before.

    Find out what IPD the milkman and window cleaner have...... Sounds suspicious ;) 

    I have seen the adventures of Timmy Lea and confessions of a window cleaner!

    100% agree with this - mine is actually 68mm but I usually find 70+ is more comfortable, though I do sometimes drop it down a bit - this can also depend on which prescription lenses I'm using in the headset. I'm currently using one from VR Lens Labs in the left eye and one from Widmo in the right.
    My optician told me a few mm either way is fine.

    Which is more accurate? The DK2 calibration wizard told me 64mm (I sold my DK2), while this website: https://www.contactsexpress.ca/pd-tool.html told me it's 56mm. So which measurement tool should I trust more?

    Edit: Ok I read a bit more on how to measure IPD accurately and I think I got the wrong measurement from the website I mentioned. When taking a picture with the selfie camera, the camera is too close to my eyes. My eyes need to focus to infinity, not at the camera. Otherwise, our eye roll inwards and decreases the IPD result.... So I'm going to go with 64mm, and input 64mm in the Rift S config. (I was using 58mm all that time!)

    I guess they use a credit card on that website because they figure everyone's got one, but a ruler seems to me to be a more fool-proof way and I'm sure most people have one of those don't they? or maybe they want you to grab your credit card to buy their contact lenses  ;)

    Well, this is how a lot of people check theirs (method 1 in this wikihow)...

    Thanks @DaftnDirect
    I tried method 1 and I got 64 mm! It took me more time to find a ruler than to measure my IPD! lol

    The ruler/mirror method is how I set the Rift-S software IPD but tbh, with the mechanical sliders on the CV1 and Quest, I kind of just move them until the vision is clear and comfortable for me. Both methods seem to be pretty close for me so I kind of feel confident all the headsets are set ok.
