Can someone recommend a replacement to the included face foam pad? I’m looking for something thicker. I don’t care if it reduces field of view or about other side effects. I simulated thicker foam by pulling the hmd away from my face and I’m fine with the increase in distance.
My real problem is with my glasses. They dig into my face like crazy and I can’t wear the hmd for very long. I also don’t want to scratch the lenses with my glasses. My glasses lenses press directly on the Pimax lenses even though my glasses are quite small. I literally had to modify a pair of old glasses so they wouldn’t rub in the lenses.
Hi- I use VR COVER pads for VIVE, which suits quite good. And to close area under nose, I did cut partially original foam from pimax foam for this section only. Looks goos and feels good. And does not smell that much any longer, too.
Okay, so I actually took the foam off my Vive and put it over the top and it works pretty well. Obviously it doesn’t stay on, but works until I find a more permanent solution. Thanks for the suggestion!
If you put the vive foam first the nose area of the pimax foam will hold the bottom of the foams in place. Then the only problem will be the top. I also added tape to it now if you have it you could do that.
I ended up using the foam from my Lenovo WMR headset. I had some velcro and wrapped it around the pimax foam in various places, put it back on the headset and then stuck attached the other foam on top. I haven’t tried it out for any long sessions yet; only a quick fit check to make sure my glasses would fit and it would fall off. It it not as secure as it could be, but there is zero light bleed thanks to how the nose piece bends up on the Lenovo foam and it seem secure enough to not have to worry about. I cut the velcro to size so it wasn’t excessively wrapped around the pimax foam.
This could be the new double layer club. We welcome new pictures of your double layer. Pimax should take note, as I didn’t find the pimax that comfortable at first.
I also noticed last night that it has drastically reduced the distortion on the sides. It did reduce the fov a bit but the peripheral looked spot on with no motion blur.
