Pimax Progress Report_0722

Dear Futurists,

Pimax have some good news to share with you. We have completed the design adjustments for the new cloth headstrap, mask bracket, face foam and nose pad, and have produced the first version of the sample. We are now in the process of final verification and adjustment, and we will announce the delivery time to you before the formal mass production.
Additional face foam previously promised to Kickstarter backers will be delivered after mass production. In addition, the new cloth headstrap will be delivered together to additional backers who purchase the cloth headstrap during the Kickstarter. We will also strive to speed up the design and development of modules and accessories, to provide you with better products, to fulfill our commitment.

The following is a progress report on cloth headstrap, mask bracket, face foam and nose pad:

1. Cloth Headstrap:
The more ergonomic design has been adjusted so that you will no longer feel the pain of ear and can’t be fastened. We used more stable, more reinforced materials. You don’t have to worry about deformation, loosening, and so on. Its appearance, comfort, and stability are all better with the first generation headstrap. And it can be better fixed to the head, dispersing the weight to the backward position of the head. You won’t feel like the headset can’t fit your face, and the new design will give you a better VR experience.

 

 

 

 

 

 

2. Mask bracket:
On the basis of the first version, we have made some adjustments in detail. Similarly, we replaced odorless, more comfortable materials. After adjustment, the new facial support will be more suitable for the face, and the internal space will be larger. Because we take into account that in the future there will be a lot of users need to add VR frame to the headset.

 

 

 

 

3. Face foam:
The new mask material will be softer, less likely to deform, and it will no longer have a bad smell. The part of the forehead is wider than the first generation, and it fits the face well. At the bottom of the mask we added a design that can be inserted into the nose pad. You will like the new design very much.

 

 

4. Nose pad:
Many users report to us that there are light leakage and pain in the nose. So we adjusted the design of facial stents and added nose pad, which is the same material as the new mask. And after testing, you can’t worry about light leakage and pain at all.

 

 

 

 

We have also been receiving tickets and emails from you about the progress of new cloth headstrap, face foam and nose pad since last month, and we will update the product description before mass production begins. And we will provide the best solution for you.

Thank you and wish you all the best.

  • Excited to hear about this progress! As a Kickstarter backer, will I receive this nose guard? Really need it to stop light leakage and constant pain on my nose, currently I’ve been sticking a napkin in there, making the headset unusable for more than 20 min. Also excited to hear about the controllers and base stations, looking forward to when those arrive!

  • I like the improvements. I have the 5k+ and experience the same issues (though I don’t let it slow me down). I’d like to hear about the progress on the controllers as well. Thanks!

  • excellent evolution for the 5K and 8K series, but I see that the audio, earpiece and microphone part is not included in the new helmet strap mount, which will force many of us to keep their Vive strap support with the hardware audio that is included and perfectly managed by him.

    cordially to the entire Pimax team
