Last Update date : 2017.10.12

Gear VR


The foam cushioning may naturally deteriorate over time from normal wear and tear and may need to be replaced.

To keep the face clean and dry when wearing the Gear VR will help to ensure a longer lifespan of the cushioning.

To replace the foam cushioning, do the following:

Step 1: Detach the foam cushioning from the Gear VR.

Step 2: Align the replacement foam cushioning with the Gear VR.


Step 3: Press the foam cushioning gently into place.



Please Note the following:

● When replacing the foam cushioning, grip the foam and velcro together firmly and remove it slowly.

If removing the foam cushioning by only holding the foam, the foam cushioning may be deformed or torn.
● Do not use the Gear VR without the foam cushioning.
● Without the foam cushioning, the Gear VR may not sit properly on the face and may cause discomfort.
