DPVR Refines E4 Headset for Commercial and Consumer Excellence

PVR, a leading hardware manufacturer in the virtual reality (VR) industry, announces a comprehensive hardware update for its E4 PCVR headset. This refinement comes in response to valuable consumer feedback, ensuring an even more immersive and comfortable VR experience.

Community feedback stated that the previous headset could become hot during long sessions, especially in rooms without AC, particularly in the summer season. VRchat groups prioritize audio quality, and for arcade business start-ups, durability, reliability, and compatibility with children’s heads are crucial considerations. In response to these concerns, the company has made polishments to the hardware to meet customer needs.

Key Updates:

  • Turbo Cooling System: The E4 now added vents on both sides of the headset, improving airflow. The upgraded vapor chamber ensures efficient cooling, enabling the headset to run Half-Life: Alyx for an extended 2 hours, with a 20°C reduction in core temperature.
  • Fan Module Upgrade: A new fan module, coupled with refined fan control logic, increases fan speed while minimizing operating sound for a quieter experience.
  • Audio Upgrade: The latest build-in stereo speakers with improved low-frequency performance, optimized distortion, and comes with wired earphones. Additionally, dedicated headphones exclusively designed for the E4 will be available for purchase in the coming months.
  • New Cable Solution: Features a strengthened 6-meter DP cable with reinforced strain relief and a detachable end. The earphone jackport has been redesigned, and the tangling box is removed, enhancing cable durability and user convenience.
  • Comfort and Exterior Enhancements: With a head circumference compatibility of 53-66cm, the E4 is now suitable for more kids. The new velcro head strap ensures a secure fit. The headset comes with a premium magnetic cloth texture faceliner, and the exterior features UV painting for a long-lasting, fresh look.

Derek Liu, VP of DPVR said;

“Designing with the community’s needs and feedback in mind has always been our priority. While other mega VR headset manufacturers shift focus to standalone devices and Microsoft discontinues the WMR platform, DPVR remains committed as the Noah’s ark for PC VR fans. With 13 times updates to the DPVR software assistant in 2023 and this significant hardware update for the E4, along with the anticipation of our new-gen headset in 2024, we have the utmost confidence in serving flight and sim racing enthusiasts.”
