Vibe into the holidays and save hundreds on these HTC Vive headsets


Virtual reality enthusiasts have a lot of deals to sift through this holiday season. Not only are there amazing Black Friday deals on Oculus Quest headsets, but other brands have been discounted as well. While the Oculus Quest 2 is the perfect VR headset for many people who want a standalone device and don't want to be tethered to their computer, it isn't for everyone. That's where the HTC Vive comes in.

The HTC Vive is undoubtedly one of the more expensive VR headsets on the marking, sometimes costing well over $1,000 for the complete package. This Black Friday you can save hundreds on those same headsets, dropping them to just $399 in some cases. Now that's a price that's competitive. And best of all, you can save on related HTC Vive accessories, too.
