HTC Vive Pro is Available for Pre-order at Amazon with Stunning Price

The missing HTC Vive Pro details are finally unveiled.

The highly anticipated HTC Vive Pro virtual reality headset is available for pre-order now on amazon.com. HTC announced on March 19 the price and the release date of the new high-end Vive Pro. The new HTC Vive Pro is priced at $799 and will ship on April 5.

The HTC Vive Pro's price is quite low, forcing HTC to cut the price of the current HTC Vive VR headset by $100 down to $499, available on amazon.com.

Pre-ording the HTC Vive Pro comes with an incentive as well. All Vive Pro HMDs purchased by June 3rd will come with a free six-month trial to Viveport Subscription, where consumers can choose up to 5 titles per month from the more than 400 titles available.

“With the Vive Pro we are delivering the best quality display and visual experience to the most discerning VR enthusiasts. Our goal has always been to offer the most premium VR platform available and to drive adoption for VR,” said Daniel O’Brien, GM U.S, VIVE. “By lowering the price of the current Vive, we are making VR more accessible while expanding the potential market for developers. Whether you're a VR enthusiast or new to the platform, there’s never been a better time to join the most complete VR platform available.”

Current Vive owners can upgrade their headset for the best display, audio, and comfort in the industry. The Vive Pro comes with dual-OLED displays, making for a crisper image resolution of 2,880 x 1,600 combined, a 78% increase in resolution over the current Vive HMD.

In addition to visuals, Vive Pro also features integrated, high-performance headphones with a built-in amplifier that creates a heightened sense of presence and sound through noise cancellation capabilities. These improved graphics and audio allow for users to experience VR with enhanced clarity, making it the most realistic and immersive VR experience on the market today.

In addition, the Vive Pro has been rebuilt to maximize comfort for the most demanding VR users. The Vive Pro features a redesigned head-strap that balances the weight of the headset more evenly and features easy simple adjustment buttons for Vive users with glasses.

The Vive Pro works with both SteamVR Tracking 1.0 and 2.0, meaning existing Vive customers can upgrade the headset only and continue to use current generation controllers and base stations. Pre-order the HTC Vive Pro now to benefit from the free subscription on amazon.com.
