We are pleased to announce that whether you own the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition*, the Samsung Gear VR Consumer Edition, or the new dark blue Samsung Gear VR Latest Version, our high-quality microfleece face cushions fit each one of these VR headsets (see footnote below about Innovator Edition).
Made specifically for the Samsung Gear VR earlier this year, we’ve also seen our Samsung Gear VR face pads used on the consumer version of the Oculus Rift to reduce God rays, increase field of view (FOV), and improve comfort.
Samsung Gear VR Latest Version Replacement Face Padding
If you have used the past editions of the Gear VR and you try the new Samsung Gear VR latest version you will notice one thing right away – it’s bigger.
The latest version of the Samsung Gear VR supports the new Galaxy Note 7 as well as the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 Edge, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and the Galaxy S6 Edge+.
It sports a slightly larger field of view (FOV) at 101 and to achieve this Samsung has also increased the size of the device. This may pose a slight problem for those who have slightly smaller heads or who found light leaking in with the previous consumer Gear VR edition.
While the face pad which comes with the latest version Gear VR is softer and more comfortable than previous generations, it isn’t breathable or machine washable.
The face pad doesn’t allow for air to travel through it, which helps to circulate air within the device and allow for heat to escape to reduce lens fog. It’s also not recommended that you machine wash the pad to clean it, but I can assure you that after a few pass-around sessions at family get-togethers, you will want to find a way to clean or replace your pad!
We have the perfect solution for you
Our high-quality microfleece Gear VR face pads have been engineered to help improve airflow and comfort for longer, more enjoyable VR sessions.
Microfleece is breathable, sweat wicking material. It’s super soft and safe for those with sensitive skin. We designed our pad to be slightly larger in certain areas than the previous generations of Gear VR pads in order to improve comfort in problem areas like the forehead and nose.
This helps those who may have a smaller head as well. Our pad has a little more surface area on your face to cover up the areas which may not get covered by the larger pad which comes with the latest version Gear VR.
One of the most important fun facts about our pad is that it does not compromise your field of view, and it’s machine washable! So share and explore as many virtual worlds as you like and know that when you are done, you can easily and quickly remove your Gear VR face cushion and machine wash it.Grab a pad now for only $12.99!

*Gear VR Innovator Edition note: You will require a few small strips of double sided hook Velcro to attach our face pads to the Samsung Gear VR Innovator Edition.
