Very Comfy

Pros: It's much better than original strap, it's better than I expected.
You definitely need this if you plan on playing for an extended period of time.

Cons: The speakers are well designed for ease of use but they don't sound really good.
I recommend buying a good wireless headset to maximize immersion.

It works great

Pros: I got it one sale, so the price is not too bad. It works great. Play VIVE with this strap, I feel way more comfortable and easier to put it on. Good to get it.

Cons: NA

Other Thoughts: It should come with VIVE default.

Broken headphone

Pros: It's theoretically a great improvement on the original head strap. When it's working, it mounts great and sounds great.

Cons: It's clearly cheaply built. The foam is cheap and is of the type that will disintegrate quickly. And most importantly, mine broke within a month of use. The headphone ear-pieces have a "click-in-place" mechanism. Which is a nice idea. Unfortunately, the retainer ring failed on mine and now one ear just dangles there unable to click into place so I can't hear it. There is no way to buy a replacement part. You can only buy a whole new headstrap. Even though the strap does come with instructions on how to remove and re-attach the ear-piece.

Other Thoughts: This is the fourth major component of my Vive that has broken and needed to be replaced. One lighthouse failed. Two controllers failed. And now the nice brand new head-strap failed. All design or manufacturing problems. None were user error. At some point, you just have to call it. HTC makes cheap easily broken things and it will burn you. Don't buy a deluxe audio headstrap. Save your money and buy an Oculus. Get out of HTC's ecosystem.

Worth the money, Worth the Time

Pros: I am glad I bought this for my VIve. It's been a year and a half, and a new accessory did not seem extravagant.
This brings ease and comfort to wearing the Vive that it did not previously have. Anyone can slip it right on, it's great. That is its biggest selling point: comfort

Cons: But that comfort comes at a price. This is something that should have been included in the original kit, IMO, but I am also glad to see HTC putting out more accessories for it. Most will turn away from this purchase simply because it is asking for more money when it already costs far beyond the reach of average gamers.
The built-in headphones are a nice, Oculus-like touch (get it?) but like those, they are not exactly audiophile grade. You can, however, remove the built-in mics and use your own headset, or at least most, so it isn't too big of a con. It's the price that loses one star, becauese everything else was great

Other Thoughts: I recommend this for any Vive user. The only con is the price, but if you are a Vive user you know just how tough it is to get the headset on. It's a clunky system, and what I expected at such an early developmental stage. Look at what taking another year did for Oculus Touch. Now, I would not look at it like we are being cheated, but instead lucky enough that they are producing upgrades instead of scrapping the project and moving on.
This brings ultimate comfort for all Vive users and is a must-have item. Taking the headset on and off, or switching it to somebody else, is extremely easy. This fits securely on your head quicker than any other VR headset I have tried. If you have the money, and want another reason to use your Vive more often, go ahead and get this!

This is a must-have!!!

Pros: it completely evens out the weight of the headset, its super comfortable, it feels super secure on your head, and the headphones give enough audio, but still lets you hear your outside surroundings(and the bonus is since the price of the Vive was reduced, this will make a good investment to your headset)

Cons: the instructions and installation was a little bit difficult to understand, but other than that, there are no other cons to this

Makes Immersion More Possible!

Pros: Lighter Feel, easier head movements, Wires don't get caught on feet as much. Haven' t tried audio yet. Excellent adjustment and "sweet spot" holding in place without pinching or excessive tightness to the skin.

Cons: Didn't find one yet except that it's not wireless yet.

-Ease of adjusting to different sized heads (1 top center velcro strap and 1 nob at back of strap)
-Multi-Positional headphones Included (sound is decent but the adjustable nature of the setup is sweet)

Cons: -I did not come with HTC Vive
