What headphones can I use with Quest 2 or Quest?

You can use headphones with both your Quest and Quest 2 headsets.
Quest 2
Quest 2 supports both 3.5mm headphones, as well as USB-C headphones. To use standard headphones with a 3.5mm jack, plug the headphones into the audio port located on the right side of your headset.
To use USB-C headphones with Quest 2 plug the USB cable into the charging port located on the right side of the headset, just behind the standard audio port.
Keep in mind, if you plug in two sets of headphones, only the headphones plugged into the 3.5mm audio port will work. USB-C headphones also won't work if the Elite Strap with Battery is plugged in.
