For improved precision, the TrackIR 5 can be bundled with the TrackClip Pro, which features active IR lighting for enhanced tracking accuracy.

Bundle - TrackIR 5 Head Mouse

The TrackIR5 is available in two bundles:

  • Standard Bundle with a TrackIR5 without a TrackClip Pro
  • Pro-Bundle with the TrackIR5 and TrackClip Pro accessory

TrackClip Pro

The TrackClip Pro brings head tracking to your headset, and it is the perfect accessory for your TrackIR 4 or TrackIR 5. The TrackClip easily attaches to Creative Lab's or other popular over-the-ear headsets, allowing for 6 degrees of precise tracking, view control and freedom. Additionally, the lightweight TrackClip Pro is almost imperceptible while worn.

The TrackClip Pro from Natural Point is a lightweight accessory that attaches to your headset and uses active LED's for precision tracking and enhanced movement. The TrackIR 4 and TrackIR 5 come standard with reflective dots that provide an adequate amount of movement and feedback, but the TrackClip Pro offers better tracking and interaction with the innovative TrackIR head mouse systems and computer games. The ultra light weight design features a USB power tap with a USB pass through and a 2 position headset clip that fits over-the-ear style headsets, improving your game without any unnecessary distractions.

TrackClip Pro Features:

  • Active LEDs provide for precise tracking
  • USB power tap for easy recharging
  • Ultra light weight design
  • Range of 2-5 feet (61 cm to 152 cm)

I would recommend this item to a friend.

TrackIR 5
January 11, 2015
It's fun to use and works great with my large collection of games.
Easy to adjust for many games. Many online setups that you can import into your games and adjust to your liking.
None found so far.

Excellent product, really makes fps and flight sims become more immersive. I strongly recommend this product, it gives a better sense of reality. There is plenty of profiles to help you out online, but I would use them as a starting point and adjust TIR to your own personal preference.

Excellent product if you are a flight simmer. Highly recommended, especially you you buy the Track Clip Pro, which greatly increases the tracking accuracy .

If you fly flight sims the TIR is an indispensable piece of equipment to have, perhaps second only to a joystick. It's really that good.

Not Disappointed
April 7, 2011
Work as advertised. However when using with my 47" LCD TV the wiring of the Track Clip Pro becomes a little bit short for the distance I have to keep from the TV screen. Wish there is a wireless version.

remember duties!

The TrackIR 5 sofware is wonderful. Setup was just as simple as it could be, and you can center the camera each time you sit down to a new session, for perfect alignment every time. I use the TrackIR 5 for MSFX, after over 10 years of FSimulator fun, and TrackIR has changed my Sim experience so that much I cannot imagine going back to the hat switch for view control; it is that good! My only complaint is that the UPS delivery guy wanted a $64 cheque at the door, even though I had paid $8.00 (to the supplier) for shipping. The duty-charge was totally unexpected, and raised the delivered price of the combined TrackClip and TrackClip Pro hardware to over CDN$240. I still highly recommend getting the TackClip hat reflectors for an extra $20 because the system becomes more versatile. 5 out of 5 definitely.

I feel like I found the missing link to microsoft flight sim. Was very easy to install & use.

As advertised
May 26, 2010
The TrackIR-5 works exacltly as advertised - I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a more immersive FSX experience. Oh, and go for the Pro Clip bundle - the device provides more reliable/responsive tracking as it emits an active IR beam - rather than relying on reflecting light, which is the standard operation.

How'd I Do Without This?
March 30, 2010
If you're into pc flight simulators, this item can greatly enhance your gaming experience. Trackir 5 will raise your situational awareness to new heights, especially in combat flight simulators. Once you get used to using this device, scanning your surroundings from the cockpit becomes so natural you'll wonder how you got along without it before now. Go over to the Trackir 5 web site and peruse the games this device supports. You may already have some of them. I hate to use the term "must have" but if you're a flight simulator freak, the phrase is completely appropriate. Hopefully the price will come down in the future.

Amazing Fun
February 26, 2010
TrackIR works beautifully, even with the standard track clip. There is a game I've been playing for 6 years, and TrackIR has made it a whole new experience for me. I highly recommend it.

older software
February 10, 2010
Well, I have had some trouble with the latest software so I loaded the older 4. and it now iseasier to center and seems fine (fun) I am not sure but it could be my 64bit machine. A few quirks but can't be beat for micro-softX!

Nice Addition
January 15, 2010
Was recommended for doing some serious instrument work on Flt Sim X. I wanted to spend more time doing the work than remembering button and switch assignments and looking away from and missing something, losing concentration. I think it's "going" to be great, once I can figure out how to best set it up. My only reason for not giving it five stars is because of the confusing manual, at least for me. The Human Solution was terrific, shipper was not, HS followed up with me and couldn't be happier about the experience with them. Wouldn't hesitate to use The Human Solution again and recommend them.

TrackIR 5
November 7, 2009
I bought a trackir 5 from the human solution cheapest price i could find anywhere including online auctions it arrived at my house in australia within a week The product itself is really good i bought it for arma II theres nothing like flying a Cobra and looking around like your really in it, it took alittle while to understand how to set it up so it works the best but once i learned how to set it up properly and remap some buttons onto my mouse i was happy, its very good on a smaller monitor it works 100% but i play on a 40inch tv that is mounted on the wall above my keyboard and my head is directly in the centre of the screen and its hard to position the trackir in a good location so that it can see the full degree of my head movments if its too low on the bottom boarder of my tv and i look up it wont pick up on the LED's past a certain point and wont do that motion to the full range ive ended up putting the trackir unit within the screen space which isnt to bad but would preffer it not there maybee ill work something out like facing it backward id recommend the trackclip pro LED headset becuase its alot more accurate than the reflectors but they do the job too i ended up buying the LEDS at a later date and payed more than i would have if i bought it with the trackir unit combined postage is a good thing too when you buy together. i rate the trackir and the humansolutions customer service highly if they ever have something else im after i wont hesitate to shop with them thanks humansolution.
