TLDR: Many reports of straps cracking or breaking off. Be wary of spending $50 as this may happen to you. Not a great step up so unless you plan on using your headset often, reconsider.
After a week of usage, my opinion has not changed too much. In terms of fulfilling it's purpose, the Elite Strap does a better job distributing weight than the cloth strap. The twisting mechanism to tighten the strap is also easier to do compared to the cloth strap. However, there is still the issue of the headset being too front heavy. Even with the Elite Strap, it's definitely noticeable. After an hour or so of usage, your neck will get pretty sore from carrying the weight of the headset. It would work a lot better if the back of the Elite Strap was heavier to offset the weight.
Even with this, I was considering changing my review from a 3/5 star to a 4/5 star, however, an issue came up.
One of my main worries when using the strap was how thin the side plastic was. Sure, it was solid, but for certain VR games that require a lot of movement, the strap may not hold up. While this hasn't happened to me (yet) many other people have reported the side straps cracking or snapping off entirely. Apparently only after a few days of use while playing moderately intense games like Beat Saber. Others have also claimed that simply adjusting the straps lead to them cracking. While I'm unsure if this is universal or just certain product malfunctions, the fact that this has occurred to certain people is concerning.
TDLR: Feels better than the cloth strap but painfully difficult to install. May not be worth the $50 unless you're planning on using your headset often.
If you're someone like me who did a lot of research into the Occulus Quest 2 before buying it, you probably know the gripes reviewers have about the quality of the cloth strap. This product serves as a replacement and in some ways solves the issue but has its downsides.
There is no nice way to say it. The installation was frustrating at best and potentially dangerous at worse. The Quest 2 comes with some removable parts that are necessary when installing the elite strap. First, you must remove the cloth strap. For some unknown reason, there is no sliding mechanism or a way to lock it in place that doesn't require pulling it out. Doing so is difficult as it requires quite a bit of force and its hard to tell which part is part of the strap and which part is part of the headset. I spent a couple minutes prying and seeing where it was supposed to come off before I resolved to just force it off and hope for best. It came off fine but its not unlikely that you may accidentally damage your headset as its just that confusing.
For installing the strap itself, this part was even worse. The instructions are pretty vague so it takes a bit of interpreting to find the best way to approach it. It works similar to the way the cloth strap came off where there is no sliding/locking mechanism. You just have to force the strap onto the headset and hope it locks. Trying to gently attach it isn't an option as the arms of the headset are pretty thick and requires a lot of strength to get them to go over it. Like with the cloth strap, I spent a couple minutes trying to attach it before resolving to just roughly pushing it onto the arms. This took a couple tries before it finally clicked. Once again, it worked, but its not unlikely that you may damage your headset in the process.
First Impressions (4/5):
Works as advertised. It distributes the weight far better than the cloth strap though the headset is still very front heavy. The size adjusting is a dial which is far more convenient than the cloth strap.
I'll be updating this review as I get a better feel of it.
2. VERY SOLID FEELING. and once i Figure out how to fit it, I forgot it was on five minutes into the game. (I have a BIG SKULL, and I had room to spare... I was wearing it too low on the back of my head and I felt it push when I looked up. Once I moved it up and readjusted, it disappeared.
Price should be lower tho, removing and installing was pretty straightforward and easy, just remove the face pad, remove the strap and remove the 2 plastic attatched to the headset, then just attach the strap, attach the face pad and attach the 2 plastic to the sides of the headset, removing was easier but to install the elite you have to use more force, not hard at all tho.
Played some extensive time and it felt great, the rotating circle behind makes it extremely easy to adjust if you want it more tight or more relaxed, also made sharing my quest 2 with family super easy compared to the og strap.
Eventually 3rd party straps will release better and cheaper, but for the meantime this is a great option for more comfortable playing, I recommend it, just wish it was a bit cheaper.
Elite Strap took seconds to install, very rigid and holds solidly on my head while playing intense games like Beat Saber and Blade and Sorcery(SteamVR).
I would not say its a necessary upgrade but if you get blurred vision after playing these more intense type VR games then maybe its worthwhile to upgrade then.
The strap does pivot upwards to wear it, but I wish it would pivot higher up even... still I dont think its a problem from the strap but the headset itself. Still 5 stars.
Now if you are planning to just casually use it to watch some videos or do a little gaming but not much more than it's hard to justify the price. Another pro for the cloth strap is that it makes it way easier to travel around with as with the Elite I'll have to take it off and put it away which isn't terrible because the carrycase they make for the Quest 2 is pricy and very bulky.

The other issue is that the fan is working so hard the vibrations are traveling across the rigid elite strap and into my headphones. I get a constant hum from the fan vibrations.
They should of used a vapor chamber or a little bit of copper in the heatsink to reduce how hard the fan has to work. And stop the fan vibrations.
I'm so glad I did.
I find the Elite strap to be a significant improvement not only in comfort but stability as well. When I'm playing games like Beat Saber, Pistol Whip or Vader Immortal I move around alot, which made stability iffy sometimes, the Elite strap solves this entirely. Highly recommended.
