The latest version of Meta’s virtual reality headset, the Oculus Quest 2, is benefiting from a promo code currently on Top Buy. Rarely benefiting from a discount, the autonomous headset is offered at 329 euros instead of 349. The right time to crack.
Meta (formerly Facebook Group) has stood out for several years in the virtual reality headset sector. After a lackluster first Oculus Quest, the company persevered with a second more successful iteration, the Oculus Quest 2. The latter offers many improvements, including being able to be used alone as connected to a computer. Usually sold on all sites at a public price of 350 euros, he is currently seeing his price drop thanks to a promo code on Top Achat.
The highlights of the Oculus Quest 2 VR headset
- Wireless VR headset
- A new fixing system and reduced weight
- Beautiful resolution of 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye
Gamers curious about VR or those who want to update their equipment should take a look at the Oculus Quest 2. Usually offered at € 349.99, it is available for € 328.99 on Top Buy after applying a promo code.
The discount code is valid until Monday, January 3, 2022 at 12 noon. The promo code “PLOUF” must be added when ordering to take advantage of the reduction.

A revised fixing system and weight
The Oculus Quest 2, successor to the first Oculus Quest of the name, has seen a number of changes. First of all, the helmet changed from black to white. In addition to the color, the fastening system has been revised. The side adjustment hook-and-loop fasteners have disappeared, giving way to a wide adjustable elastic band. Unfortunately, as with its predecessor, making the adjustment alone requires a bit of skill. If the first Oculus Quest tended to put a lot of weight on the face and the front of the skull due to its weight, this second version tried to fix the problem. The weight has indeed been reduced: on the scale, the helmet is 503 grams, or 68 grams less. It is also overall smaller than its predecessor.
More power and autonomy
Instead of an OLED screen, Meta has integrated an LCD panel with a resolution of 1832 x 1920 pixels per eye. If the blacks are shallower due to the change in technology, the resolution is however a pleasure to see. The grid effect is clearly much more limited than on the Quest 1. The refresh rate has now increased to 90 Hz, a nice step forward. For spectacle wearers, an adapter is provided.
The Oculus Quest 2 has a Snapdragon XR2, a suitable version of the Snapdragon 865, which fitted the Quest 1. Everything is coupled with 6 GB of RAM, which offers two to three times more power. Overall navigation is thus smoother and the headset is able to handle much more demanding games.
Meta’s VR headset ultimately scores points for its stand-alone aspect. It is thus possible to use it alone, without any wires. It is nevertheless quite capable of connecting to a computer to take advantage of its graphics card, or even to a smartphone. A flexibility that is very pleasant for the players.
