The Vive Pro features integrated headphones (rather than a jack for third-party audio devices), bringing it in line with Facebook's Oculus Rift.

The existing Vive VR headset, meanwhile, will be reduced in price to £500.

HTC said today it will sell the Vive Pro virtual reality headset for $800, with global preorders starting now.

I'll be testing out an HTC Vive Pro over the next few weeks so stay tuned for a full review. The regular Vive will become the company's entry level VR headset, with a new price tag of $499. "Whether you're a VR enthusiast or new to the platform, there's never been a better time to join the most complete VR platform available". For current Vive owners, the Vive Pro can still be used with the existing base stations and controllers, making upgrading a pretty painless process. As of right now, there are no bundle offers that you can take advantage of which can be an issue if you did not get the original version and are interested in jumping on the HTC Vive Pro bandwagon. Pro purchases made after the first 60 days of orders will come with a free two-month trial. The Pro uses dual OLED screens for a combined resolution of 2990x1600 which is a 78% jump from the original Vive. The service will increase to $8.99 after March 22 from $7.99.

The headset, which was originally announced during CES in January, will now become HTC's flagship VR product.

For comparison, the HTC Vive's displays only have a 2,160 x 1,200 resolution. The Vive ecosystem is built around the best VR hardware in market, supported by Vive X, a $100 million accelerator for VR and related technology start-ups, Viveport, a global platform and app store for VR that operates in more than 60 countries, and Vive Studios, its VR content development and publishing initiative.
