The HTC Vive Deluxe Audio Strap delivers a significantly different VR experience, both in how the Vive fits on your head and how everything fits together to create sound. Now that the new strap is on the market, you might be wondering where exactly you can buy it.
Buy Vive Deluxe Audio Strap from Amazon
Buying from Amazon means you’ll pay the standard price of around $100, but as a bonus, you won’t pay shipping.
However, there is a waiting period of one to three weeks before the strap is shipped. If you want it as soon as possible, you can look elsewhere.
Look at Amazon
Buy Vive Deluxe Audio Strap from Vive website
It is understood that the official Vive website also sells the Deluxe Audio Strap, and it costs about $100. However, you will also estimate shipping costs at around $18, bringing the total cost to around $120.
The upside of the extra shipping cost is that it feels like the strap should start the shipping process almost immediately, rather than waiting a week or three if you’re coming from Amazon.

Buy the Vive Deluxe Audio Strap from the Microsoft Store
The Microsoft Store also has a listing for the Deluxe Audio Strap, although it is still marked as out of stock at the time of writing, both online and in physical stores.
Once Microsoft updates the listing, you will probably be able to track the strap in a physical store using their store finder.
Expect to pay around $100 for a belt, with free shipping if you order online.
