Software IPD Adjust on Quest 2
Please add software ipd adjust on top of the hardware solution to improve quality (stereo effect and chromatic aberration) for people that fall in between or slightly out of the 58/63/68mm of the hardware iPd adjustment.
This way we would get a good enough hybrid of quest 1 and rift s in terms of adjustment :)
Sadly there isn’t a quest 2 page on here yet, so I hope that this idea still finds a few people that vote on it :)

68 is way too low for a max setting. I'm not a lizard or a giant, just a regular dude, my IPD is 71. There's big eye strain from using the Q2 so it's going back. I bet the the super restrictive IPD settings were the result of dumb decisions by marketing + management. There's no way an engineer would come up with something so stupid.

My IPD is just slightly above the max setting, so the image never looks quite as good as it should. Major bummer, but at least I'm lucky enough that it doesn't stop me from playing a whole bunch.

Guys, you can adjust the ipd between the settings and the more you do it the easier they will become to slide in between.

My girlfriend has an ipd of 55 and can't use the quest 2 she is pretty upset about this. Hoping we get some support here for those that can't use the system comfortably
has anyone an idea how to help with ipd of 56?

I'm 65 ipd. I'm using quest2 with a set of 63 and my eyes are too tired than when I use Oculus Go. I really want you to support the software method.

I am 6'9" have a huge head IDP of 76. The quest 2 is the best and worst headset I've ever had. Best for so many reasons and I've bought 3 of them (one was a gift) my first one had dead pixels and been emailing back and forth with oculus to get a replacement for over a month. They wanted serial numbers for everything even the boxes. Don't buy from oculus get from a store and if you have issues return it there.

Facebook knew this was a problem from before the launch. Feels weird. I've purchased 2 of every device since the DK2. Now, the company has decided that my ipd is too much of an inconvenience, for profitability.

70mm ipd and having eye strain and blurry image :(
This is needed. I have IPD 60.5 don't feel comfortable on 58mm or 63mm setting.
Increase IPD over 68 to at least 72 like Vive does. Increase FOV.

Pretty much unusable for me, will return mine until fixed

Facebook please add that option, because for most of the users, quest 2 is unuseble
For all 70 IPD users, I am a 69/71 ipd and i found a trick to get over 68mm , i just cut a rigid card slighly larger than the gap between the lenses ( like shopping cards for instance ) and place it between the two lenses to force the gap to be larger.
i guess it's better for me as i have no longer trouble vision when i get off long VR sessions.
Hope it will help, waiting for a real solution though ^^

omg yes, my IPD is 68 however 3rd setting does little for me, things in +3m away from me get really blurry, please implement a way to set it right using software...
Thomas Wolfe commented
IPD 72.. :(
I have an IPD of 70. I am glad to see this suggestion and I very much hope it will be implemented (and I also hope they will give us better optics overall with the Quest 3). I love my Quest 1 and now that I "upgraded" to Quest 2 I couldn't believe it: Everything blurry except a very small sweet spot.

IPD of 55 here, small female. I see others have posted the same.

Mine IPD is 72 measured with a phone software, so I can’t really say how accurate it is. But I had no problems with Quest 1 at all and enjoyed using it very much. Still waiting for my Quest 2 delivery, but if the experience would be worse due to decreased IPD range and if there will be no software solution coming I will return it back for sure.
Vaughn Potts commented
I would like to see an addition of a software setting for the Quest 2 also. My IPD is 72, I bought the Quest anyway because there was no other way for me to try it before hand. Really silly that this is limited to 68mm at the highest setting. Having a good experience with the product other than my vision having a very very narrow sweat spot (if you can even call it that), definitely a deal breaker.
