We’ll admit it. Sometimes getting a fully-fledged headset up and over our PlayStation VR gives us a few seconds of trouble. Especially if we already have the peripheral on our noggins. Bionik, a new manufacturer of “innovative and high quality gaming accessories,” is looking to solve that problem with its Mantis VR.
The unique pair of headphones clasp onto the sides of the PSVR with spring loaded clips as to allow easy installation and removal. Also, thanks to the materials used in creation, The Mantis VR is lightweight and has a fitting color scheme. The device will launch sometime this Spring and cost $49.99.
“Based on the incredible growth and upside of the virtual reality industry, including positive momentum recently reported on sales of PlayStation VR, the Mantis VR headphones are appearing at the perfect time,” said Amir Navid, Bionik’s SVP Product Development. “The Mantis VR was designed for the PlayStation Virtual Reality headset with the core purpose of delivering great sound and performance while reducing the clutter and inconvenience of using traditional gaming headphones. Great care was taken to make sure that the product enhances the gamer’s experience, by consolidating key accessories into one apparatus. This integrated solution perfectly complements the existing PSVR headset. We’re excited for fans and gamers to experience audio that matches the quality of PSVR’s visuals inside and out.”
