Soundcore touts its latest VR P10 Gaming Earbuds as the first audio products of their kind to be officially approved for use with the Meta Quest 2 virtual reality (VR) headset. They come with a USB type-C dongle for potentially reduced latency over a 2.4 GHz wireless connection, and are rated for up to 24 hours of use between charges.

One might be inclined to think that the VR P10 Gaming Earbuds were made by Meta on first picking them up; however, as their actual maker Soundcore has proudly announced at their debut, they have been Made For Meta instead.

The new Gaming Earbuds are first among TWS earphones to this endorsement from Mark Zuckerberg's company. It means they are officially recognized as optimized for use with the Quest 2 (and not the newer Quest Pro, oddly, despite their October 18, 2022 launch date).

To this end, the Anker brand Soundcore asserts that the VR P10s are a viable alternative to headphones when gaming on a headset such as the Quest 2 thanks to the dongle that docks into the earbuds' case alongside them.

Accordingly, it can plug into the side of the headset to deliver wireless audio that syncs with a latency of as little as 30 milliseconds (ms) using the LS3 codec and in-house LightningSync wireless technology. It even has a 2nd external type-C input for pass-through charging, so that the Quest 2 can be powered through it as normal if necessary.

Furthermore, Soundcore points out that the additional piece of kit can also be used with a variety of consoles or PCs as well, and even hints that, with the P10s' multi-device connectivity, a user could get themselves up to 3 additional dongles for the seamless transfer of pairing between all their devices.

Then again, with their Bluetooth 5.2 support, 11mm drivers and 4-mic beamforming feature for clear calls, the VR P10s can also double as 'normal' TWS earbuds. On that note, they are rated to last for 6 hours on their own, or up to 24 when backed up with their case.

Thanks to their relationship with Meta, a Quest 2 user can buy the VR P10 Gaming Earbuds through that company online. However, they are also on Amazon for US$99.99 at present.
