I am happy to report that they are, in fact, "close enough." Is it a perfect fit? Not at all. Does it do what I need it to do? Yes. What's more, the material gets less funky than the overly-porous foam version I originally had. It doesn't perhaps breathe as well, but it seems like a fair tradeoff for less funk and embedded moisture. (Don't judge, Beat Saber gets pretty intense.)
My only real complaint, and it's hardly a complaint since it never claimed to be meant for my device, is that the opening ends up being a bit smaller and a little pinchy around the eyes, which is a problem for me since I wear glasses. (When I remove the headset, my glasses want to go with it. Who knows what'll happen if I get bigger glasses frames in the future.) If you don't wear glasses then it likely won't be an issue. Also the area near the nose isn't as complete, so light can get down near your nose and mouth, but to me that's a minor detail that doesn't bother me, but it's worth mentioning.
ANYway, if you have an Acer MR headset, I assume this would work perfectly for you, but even if you have an HP MR set like I do (the 1440x1440 resolution model), this gets the job done, and there are two of them so even if one gets worn out, you have a replacement. FWIW, I've yet to replace mine, and I've been using it for almost four months now. YMMV.
If your dome is more oval and elongated (think Patrick Steward) you might want to pass, rounder heads (think Jack Black) it will probably fit better, either way though it still needs more cushion between your face and the hard plastic.
Some pros and cons
-fairly comfortable, long use is not irritable
-Easy to clean for sweat and shared use
-easy to put on and take off
-Small amount of light leak at the bottom (for me though it was minuscule and not even noticeable 95% of the time)
-a worse comfort than the original padding (but not by that much)
The nose light leak is not annoying at all once you really get in the game (Your brain just ignore it) and it promote air flow if you have a fan so you dont get all steamy inside the headset. Only downside is that the foam is not too thick so it hurts if you press your face too hard against the headset.
To start they are about twice as wide, allowing it to curve around the corners so it doesn't dig into your head, it is also about the same thickness as the original, maybe thicker. Im using it on a Lenovo explorer and it fit just fine, no complaints there at all.
My one complaint though is there is definitely some light bleed, a lot for me really to the point where it would have been totally distracting. But, you can fix this yourself fairly easily. I had some extra Velcro around the house and I just cur the nose bit off the original pad and added some Velcro to the nose cup and ta-da! it was fixed! You could do this with any Velcro and padding really.
Overall im super happy with it. Way more comfortable, easy to adjust, good quality. Minus 1 star for the fairly heavy light bleed I have but if you are willing to spend 2 minutes adding a nose piece then its worth it.
