The COVID-19 pandemic has raised many questions among our customers on how to ensure safety and hygiene when using VR/XR headsets. Taking good care of your headset by cleaning it regularly is a practice we highly recommend for all our customers. A clean headset means safe usage, which is now more important than ever.
- Sanitize the headset body thoroughly before and after each session. You can clean the headset with non-abrasive antibacterial wipes. Carefully wipe the face cushion, light blocker, and nose area – as well as the headset body, including the headband adjustment wheel, buttons and cables. To clean the headset, it is recommended to first unplug the headset from its power source. Don’t use soap, harsh chemicals, cleaning solvents, liquids, or aerosols for cleaning the headset as they can cause damage to the device.
- Clean the headset lenses very carefully due to its close contact with your eyes. Wipe the lenses gently with optical lens wipes or a microfiber lens cloth.
- Change or wipe the face mask for different users. Varjo headsets come with two different sized masks – standard and large – to accommodate different head shapes. The large mask is more suitable for people with eyeglasses.
- Maintain excellent personal hygiene. Always wash your hands (and face if possible) thoroughly before and after putting the headset on. Remember to wipe the controllers, keyboard, mouse and other equipment before and after each session.
