The Soundcore VR P10 are the first headphones to be certified for Meta Quest 2 VR headset, but the buds should work with other consoles and PCs with USB-C ports such as the PlayStation 5 and Steam Deck. They come with a pluggable receiver that uses 2.4Ghz frequency to achieve low latency connection not higher than 30ms.

Other gaming earbuds with wireless receiver
Razer's more expensive Hammerhead HyperSpeed gaming headphones have the same technology, though at a slightly reduced latency. Similarly, the Logitech G Fits are gaming earbuds double the price of the Soundcore VR P10, however, these support noise canceling on top of the ultra-low wireless connection via the Lightspeed receiver.
Without the dongle plugged in, the Soundcore VR P10 headphones use Bluetooth to connect to smartphones. The pair also features a dual wireless connection so users can switch and receive calls even while playing. In addition, SBC and AAC codecs are available while the dongle gets faster LC3. And according to Soundcore, multiple dongles can be supported.
Soundcore VR P10 battery life and price
The splashproof buds have an elliptical stem-based design and large 11mm audio drivers. Soundcore says the VR P10 in-ears last 6 hours between charges or up to 24 hours using the case. More importantly, the dongle has a passthrough design so that Meta's Quest 2 can be charged without removing the pluggable device.
The Soundcore VR P10 gaming TWS buds are already available for $100, which is cheaper than the alternatives. But again, you're missing ANC and transparency features like what's found on the Soundcore Liberty 4 TWS. Only a white/silver colorway is available.
