HTC confirms price and launch date for Vive Wireless Adapter

The t-shaped adapter, which can turn the HTC Vive and Vive Pro into wireless headsets, was first unveiled back in January.

HTC has revealed when its Vive Wireless Adapter will ship, and crucially, how much it'll cost. 

The t-shaped adapter, which (as the name implies) can turn the HTC Vive and Vive Pro into wireless headsets, will retail for $299, and will be available for pre-order on September 5 before hitting shelves a few weeks later on September 24. 

HTC claims the adapter only takes a few minutes to set up, with users needing to install a PCI-e card before attaching a sensor to their PC that broadcasts to and from the now-wireless Vive headset. 

While it works straight out of the box with the standard Vive, Vive Pro owners will need to purchase an additional $60 compatibility pack that includes a connection cable, foam padding, and a unique attachment device for the premium headset. 

On the tech front, the adapter has a broadcast range of 6 meters and a 150 degree field of view from the sensor. It also runs in the interference-free 60Ghz band using Intel's WiGig specification in combination with DisplayLink's XR codec. 

All adapters will also include a two-month trial to HTC's Viveport Subscription service, which grants users unlimited access to a variety of virtual reality titles and apps of their choosing.
