For the ultimate gaming experience in Microsoft Flight Simulator, No Man's Sky, or VRChat, you'll definitely want the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 4090 in the Player: Three.

Unboxing & connecting the headset

Inside the box, you'll find the following components: your Beyond, your custom-made face cushion, a 5-meter fiber optic USB-C Cable, and the Link box.

Connecting the cable

It's important to note the 5-meter Beyond cable is not reversible. One side of the cable must be plugged into the headset, while the other side must be connected to the Link Box.

The side of the cable with the ⦿ purple label and a dot plugs into the USB-C port on the left side of the headset. Beyond will not turn on if you incorrectly connect the cable to the right side USB-C port, which can be used for accessories such as the Audio Strap.

The side of the cable with an ⦿ orange label and a D-shaped plug connects to the Link Box, which has a matching D-shaped slot. Since the cable is not reversible, Beyond will not function correctly if you connect this side of the cable to the headset.

Connecting the Link Box to your PC

Connect the two USB 3.0 cables ⦿ on the Link Box to two USB 3.0 ports on your computer. The Link Box's DisplayPort 1.4 cable ⦿ must be connected directly to the Nvidia or AMD graphics card on your computer, and should not be plugged into your motherboard. If you're using a laptop, you will either need a Mini-DisplayPort to Displayport 1.4 adapter. or if your laptop has USB-C DisplayPort (also known as DP Alt Mode), you will need a USB-C to DisplayPort 1.4 adapter.

Adjusting the Soft Strap

Find the right tightness for a comfortable Beyond experience. For improved ergonomics, try attaching the included Top Strap to the Soft Strap.For ultimate comfort and built-in headphones, we recommend buying the Bigscreen Beyond Audio Strap.

Tightening the Strap

Grab each of the strap clips ⦿ with your thumbs and index fingers. Simultaneously pull both strap clips outward to tighten the strap.

Loosening the Strap

To loosen, grab both strap clips ⦿ with your thumbs and index fingers and reverse the process: simultaneously pull both strap clips inward.

Clipping the cable to the Soft Strap

The Soft Strap has a Cable Clip. Slide the cable through it and the cable will be held rigidly. This lets you route the cable behind your back for improved ergonomics. It's important to leave enough length of cable near the left-side of the headset to allow unrestricted head movement.


Download Steam and install SteamVR

Beyond works with all the VR games and applications on Windows PCs. To get started, you'll need to install SteamVR from Steam.

Downloading Steam

Visit and click on the green button labeled 'Install Steam' located in the top right corner of the website.

Installing SteamVR

Steam should automatically display a pop-up to install SteamVR when you connect your Beyond. If that doesn't happen, search for SteamVR on Steam and install it.

The Bigscreen Beyond Utility

Once you installed SteamVR, Steam will automatically download the Bigscreen Beyond driver. It will install a tiny Bigscreen Beyond app that enables you to enhance your headset experience. The app lets you adjust the refresh rate, brightness, fan speed, and LED color. It will minimize into your system tray when not in use.
