We are seeing one kit that bundles all the required hardware of Vive and another one kit that only includes the updated headset and link box. While have already stated that there will be a new Vive Pro into market geared towards prosumers. So it will be more expensive than the previous consumer model.
When it comes to the pricing details of the HTC Vive it will costs around $599, so HTC Vive Pro will be costing around $799 more or less the price will be equal to this. As there are slight improvements in the Vive pro, they might be selling this one for a bit higher price.

When we look into Vive Pro Design it has improved fit and comfort that its earlier generation VR. Also, the headset carries headphones and it will be compatible with previous Vive hardware. When you first see the Vive pro, you will see the improved color and premium design. The Original Vive was a grey-black combo, while the New Vive Pro has opted to Navy blue shade instead. It gives a premium feel and nice looks from the external.
The final verdict of the HTC Vive Pro:
The HTC Vive Pro is a welcoming update compared to earlier HTC Vive. As the New Vive Pro has got an improved resolution and more comfortable fit and coming to its hardware it is compatible with its earlier generation Vive hardware and Vive Pro has an inbuilt headphone with it. Not as roomers said it’s not a Vive 2.0, but its certainly a step forward and it’s in the right direction. So it’s not worth to upgrade if you have already had the HTC Vive. We recommend to wait and see for some more VR headsets in the market which will consistently give more results. As HTC Vive Pro is a bit expensive so before you check out this product from your cart. Choose any alternative and compare both if you really need a good VR headset.
