HTC untethers VR with Vive Pro, Wireless

They also reported that the Vive Pro would include on-board speakers, not stating whether they'll be on-ear headphones like the Vive Deluxe Audio Strap, or hidden projection speakers similar to those on the Vive Focus headset.

HTC has not announced pricing and availability for either device, but the Vive Pro is expected in Q1 while the wireless adaptor is coming around the "summer". We have yet to get hands-on experience with either the Vive Pro or the Vive Wireless adapter, but we have a demo appointment tomorrow, so keep checking PC Perspective for our updated impressions of the next generation of VR!

The company is unveiling the new Vive Pro, a new premium VR headset for gamers and enterprise customers.

HTC Vive's pre-CES 2018 press conference may have been dominated by the HTC Vive Pro and new Wireless Adapter but it wasn't all hardware based. While there have been third-party add-ons that turn the Vive wireless, HTC is offering an official accessory. Other improvements are "integrated, high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier", dual microphones, and dual front facing cameras "designed to empower developer creativity", presumably with augmented reality applications.

But for those interested in owning the next step, HTC hasn't committed to exact release dates - for the Vive Pro, or for a proper successor to the now available Vive. The Vive Pro offers two OLED display with a combined resolution of 2880x1600, a boost from the 2180 x 1200 of the current Vive. Still, if we're looking at 1,440 x 1,600 per eye just two years on from the initial HTC Vive announcement, it won't take too long for 4K to come along. Instead, users will see "fully immersive interactive previews".

Although the overall look of Vive has not changed much, the head-strap on the Pro has also undergone a redesign, with a dial in the back that lets users adjust the fit more easily, even for who wear glasses. Featuring Intel's WiGig technology, the unit operates in what HTC calls an "interference-free" 60Ghz band for better performance.

The new adapter will be shipping in Q3, with no price announced.

First published January 8 at 1:06 p.m. PT. Update, 1:58 p.m. PT: Adds that existing consumers will also be able to buy the Vive Pro later this quarter.
