    I recently found that there are bootleg/knockoff Labo VR headsets that supposedly work with the Switch.
    Also they have a headband (which Nintendo should have included...)

    Here is a listing for one:
    https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Switch-Cardboard-Style-DIY-Cardboard-LABO-Virtual-Reality-VR-BOX-For-Odyssey-Simulator-For-NS-Console/33012385421.html
    (Although there are way more listings around for it).

    Has anyone actually bought and tried these?
    I am wondering if I should get one, since I feel that the Nintendo branded ones are way too much.

    I've been waiting for an unofficial headset, was hoping for nice mass produced plastic rather than cardboard tbh, but for single digit price I'll probably give it a go, thanks for the heads up.

    Has anyone gotten one.
    Aliexpress has them on sale at the moment and I'm wondering if I should buy one.

    Yeah I got the cardboard one, it's fine, and great for the price. I did have to add a bit of foam for the top of the nose to make it comfortable.
    In other threads people have posted a couple of other versions that aren't made of cardboard, or you could just search aliexpress for them if you're interested, they cost a bit more.

    Good price.
    They don't seem to ship to my country (Australia) though.
    Although when I go on the Australian site for replacement parts, it says to either go on their eBay page (which has all the LABO parts except VR :\) or contact them.
    I might try contacting them and seeing how much they'll allow me to get it for.

    I think the replacement VR parts are quite new to the website, they weren't there a few months ago, so maybe they'll make it to ebay soon.
