Quest 2 IPD and FOV

Hello there. I have pre-ordered the Q2 and been reading alot about it lately. I'm a little worried about the IPD setting and the decreased FOV with the widest IPD setting that people are talking about. I'm actually thinking about cancelling my order. What do you guys think? Will the smaller FOV in the widest IPD setting ruin the immersion? Is it something that worries you guys?

My IPD is 70... I’m not worried at all. If it doesn’t suit me after trying it I’ll return it for a refund. I ordered mine from Amazon.

It did ruin it for me with the Rift S and that got returned. This will, too if it's that bad. I don't mind restricted FoV (if it's not too bad) but it depends on how it looks. Straight vertical outer edges are a no-no.

Returning mine. I just got it and have an IPD of 68-70. The monolithic black bars on the left and right sides are so noticeable it completely ruins the immersion for me. Significant downgrade from the original Quest IMO. Totally disappointing and actually makes me want to leave the Oculus/facebook ecosystem completely and look for a better alternative. It's not worth investing in the Oculus Store if they're going to release garbage products like the Quest 2.

or maybe it is just people who are dissapointed specially when this was not stated by oculus with the black bars on setting 3 that ruins any immersion

Why not test the Quest 2? It's easy to get to FOV values - just download TestHMD here:

No need for all this guessing! 😉 Here are some reference values:
