Hey all I am wanting to extend my cables for my headset to give more room, and my question is what is the max on the cable length for the USB and HDMI. 

Thanks

 Make sure you purchase active cables.

15ft Active USB 3.0 cables in my setup and they work fine for all the sensors. I personally haven't heard of people going over 15ft, but I'm sure such persons could be out there.
PC Specs:
Intel i7-6700k @ 4.5 Ghz
Gigabyte Z170X-Gaming 3 Motherboard
RTX 2080 Ti - MSI VENTUS
16 GB CAS-10 RAM @ 2400 MHz
Startech 4-port/4-USB controller add-on card
850W Corsair HX850 PSU
4-Sensor, Roomscale Setup

Sensors, I tried 5m USB 3.0 active extension cables, tracking kept dropping every second. Tried 3m USB 2.0 instead and that worked fine. Both go throught a USB 3.0 hub then another USB 3.0 extension cable so it's easier for me to unplug both sensors from the front of my PC easily.

As for HMD, 2m HDMI extension with a $2 HDMI repeater and 2m USB 3.0 extension cables work fine. The repeater is essential, you'll get audio but no video without it.
