The best VR headsets: The virtual reality race is on

Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR, Gear VR, HTC Vive…things are heating up
The best VR headsets

Virtual reality is here – 2016 is the year when the likes of Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and the HTC Vive take the medium mainstream. And it's well on its way.

For the uninitiated, VR is an immersive experience in which your head movements are tracked in a three-dimensional world, making it ideally suited to games and even movies.

Explained: How does VR actually work?

While VR was a non-starter back in the 90s, developers are now creating mind-blowing experiences that look set to revolutionise gaming and entertainment.

But what are the best VR headsets and which one should you choose? We've put together the definitive selection of the most gob-smackingly awesome devices just waiting to be strapped to your face.

Read on for the full list…

HTC Vive

The HTC Vive, is the HTC headset made in collaboration with Valve, the makers of legendary gaming series Half-Life and the gaming platform Steam.

The HTC Vive plugs into PCs and work with Valve's mammoth gaming ecosystem. It packs in 70 sensors to offer 360-degree head-tracking as well as a 90Hz refresh rate; the stat that's key to keeping down latency, which is the technical term for the effect that causes motion sickness. Thankfully, that wasn't an issue in our review time.

However, the key to the HTC Vive's success is the Lighthouse room tracking that enables you to move around with the headset on. It means mounting some sensors in your home, but the effect is next level. Check out our HTC Vive review to see how.

Oculus Rift

Best VR headsets

Oculus Rift is the headset that started the current hysteria. Developed by Palmer Luckey, funded via Kickstarter and snapped up by Facebook for a cool $2 billion, the Rift plugs into your computer's DVI and USB ports and tracks your head movements to provide 3D imagery on its stereo screens.

The consumer edition Rift uses a 2160 x 1200 resolution, working at 233 million pixels per second, with a 90Hz refresh rate. It's high-tech stuff, which matches the HTC Vive for refresh rate, but lags behind PlayStation VR. However, given its access to the power of latest PCs, it will be pushing a lot more pixels than Sony's headset.

Oculus Rift has had some shipping delays, but the headset is finally arriving in homes. The Oculus Touch controllers however, are slated to arrive later in the year, so you'll have to settle for an Xbox One controller in the box. Be sure to read our definitive Oculus Rift review for more details.

Sony PlayStation VR

We finally have a launch date for the PlayStation VR headset: 13 October 2016.

A new version was announced at GDC 2015 and gone is the 5-inch LCD display of the original prototype; in its place a 5.7-inch OLED one which enables low persistence, which should mean less motion blur. The display's refresh rate has also been ramped up to 120Hz, making 120fps gaming a real possibility.

The reported latency issues of Morpheus Mk1 have been addressed, with a new 18ms reading, and tracking accuracy has been tweaked with a total of nine LEDs now aiding the positional awareness of the headset.

With its low price and pre-Christmas on-sale date, PlayStation VR has the chance to go big – even if by its own admission, the tech isn't up to the standards of its competitors. Check out our early PlayStation VR review for more information.

Samsung Gear VR (2016)

The new Samsung Gear VR doesn't look much different to its predecessor but it has several upgrades that make it totally worth it.

Gone is the hugely annoying lens fog thanks to new vents and more space inside the headset.

Of course, the visual experience of using Gear VR (2016) will depend on which Samsung smartphone you use, like the large and sharp Note 7 screen.

But there are some improvements to the actual headset no matter which Sammie handset you've got – specifically Samsung has widened the viewing angle to 101 degrees (from 96 degrees) and darkened the colour tint to reduce glare and reflections.

The price of the new Gear VR hasn't gone up at all either - you'll just need one of the following compatible devices to plug in: Galaxy Note 7, S7, S7 Edge, Note 5, S6, S6 Edge and S6 Edge+.

Google Cardboard

The best AR and VR headsets

Not to be outdone, Google announced its Cardboard virtual reality headset at I/O 2014 and unveiled version 2 at the 2015 conference. Popping a smartphone into a cardboard container and then strapping it to your head may sound like a joke, but it actually works and it could become a low-cost way to experience virtual reality.

After all, your smartphone contains all the necessary gyroscopic sensors and positioning systems to accurately track your head movements. Related is Durovis' Dive, which is essentially the same thing made of higher quality and more sweat-resistant materials.

With the popularity of Cardboard, Google decided it would release an even better one. Called Daydream, the device is pretty much a Gear VR but apparently there's a whole slew of Android phones getting revamped to provide a better VR experience with Daydream. Companies making the handsets will also likely release their own mobile headsets.

There's no official date for its release except an estimate for this fall. We'll update the list to see if the Google VR headset - or any others running the Daydream platform - makes the cut then.

Take a look at the best Google Cardboard VR apps and games.

Microsoft HoloLens

Not a copycat of the big VR headsets, Microsoft HoloLens blends virtual and half augmented reality to make one of the most ambitious launches ever planed. The device merges real-world elements with virtual 'holographic' images, meaning you can look at your Minecraft world on your kitchen table, or walk around the surface of Mars in your living room.

Must read: Everything you need to know about AR

Using Kinect-style tech to recognise gestures and voice commands, the headset has a 120-degree field of vision on both axes, and is capable of 'high definition' visuals, but it's still a letterbox compared to the likes of Oculus and Vive. More importantly, however, there's no connection to a PC – a full Windows 10 system is built into the headset and runs off a battery. No, we can't wait to see how long that lasts either.

The Development Edition is available now for Windows Insider members with a price tag of $3,000.

$3,000, microsoft.com

Meta 2

Meta had a developer kit of its augmented reality headset in 2013 but it's the Meta 2 that's really caught our attention. It looks similar to HoloLens with its large shape and helmet-like design, but second-gen headset offers a larger field of view than any other AR headset out and on the way.

At 90 degrees, its three times bigger than the original Meta, and its 2560 x 1440 display plus positional tracking allowing your hands to interact with what you see makes for a very promising device.

But like most AR headsets, it's not cheap and it hasn't officially released yet. To get your hands on a Meta 2, it'll cost $949 and won't ship until Q3 2016.

$949, metavision.com

Razer OSVR HDK 2

Razer's OSVR isn't a rival to the likes of Oculus Rift, PlayStation VR and Samsung Gear VR. Instead, it's intended to make life easier for developers to make applications for VR hardware, without technical (software and hardware) limitations getting in their way.

There's even a newer headset out aptly called the OSVR Hacker Developer Kit 2. It's got better hardware specs this time around with 2160 x 1200 dual OLED display putting it right up against the big names. However, there's still some comfort issues to work through. As the name says, the headset still remains open source, allowing third parties to do whatever they want with it.

We have already seen plenty of third parties getting involved to help develop new features, including gesture tracking with a Leap Motion faceplate in the past.

Previously on sale to developers, the general public can now order the first dev kit direct through Razer, although the company is keen to stress that it's still not a consumer product and, as such, only has a 30 day warranty. The second headset is available July this summer.

HDK 2 $399, HDK 1 $299.99razerzone.com

FOVE VR

FOVE VR differs from the likes of Oculus Rift and PlayStation VR because it offers interactive eye-tracking. Inside the headset is an infrared sensor that monitors the wearer's eyes; offering both a new control method and an edge on its competitors when it comes to realism.

With FOVE, simulated depth-of-field is possible, due to the system knowing exactly what you're looking at, and as a result, the virtual should appear more real.

It's also the ultimate VR lovechild, thanks to investment from Samsung Ventures, Fove claims it will use HTC's Lighthouse tech for full on room tracking. It's not the only deal that Fove and signed: it also makes use of the Wear VR software platform and is compatible with Unity, Unreal, and Cryengine game engines.

From $349, getfove.com

Zeiss VR One Plus

Like the Samsung Gear VR and the previous Zeiss One, the hardware power for the second-gen Zeiss branded headset comes from your smartphone. Unlike Sammy's effort, however, you're not tied to just one mobile with the Zeiss VR One Plus; it will play ball with any iOS or Android handset with the latest model allowing larger sizes between 4.7 and 5.5 inches (it previously only fit phones up to 5.2 inches).

It packs a media player for the likes of pictures and YouTube videos and an AR app for augmented experiences, while the open source Unity3D SDK (iOS and Android) means there's plenty of scope for development. The company is also pushing for drone enthusiasts to pick up the One Plus headset as a means to fly and see from a bird's eye view - in VR.

What's more, with lens maker Zeiss doing the optics, VR One Plus definitely has promise - however the second iteration is only available in Europe right now.

    How about the ImmersiON-VRelia products? Rated "Best of CES 2015" by GamBit magazine and winner for "Best designed VR-Headset" by VR-iPhone.com?

    Thanks.

    • Prantha says:

      Excellent question!

      • Dordor says:

        hello. The first two... Oculus and the HTC connect to computers... Powerful. What is the definition of powerful? Memory, etc? Thanks

    • Endritibabloki1 says:

      Best VR.......... STARVR.......

      • RabidPenguin says:

        Have you tried StarVR? I have. The potential is there but its not ready to compete with the likes of Oculus or Vive. At least as of my last try of it. I'm sure they have improved it but they are also not planning a consumer release now and are instead focusing on the DoD and research markets. I found their purported 5k screen to not add much to visual quality and there was more pixelation. The wider field of view also didn't do a lot for me, BUT on that I will say I only got 15 minutes with it and it takes longer than that to get used to "seeing" with devices like this. So with more time that expanded field of view might have meant more to me. Again there is no doubting the potential there, but I don't think I could give it the best VR tag. Then again, it's subjective and this is only my opinion on the current state of it. Though I wouldn't call FOVE of Carl Zeiss great VR either. OSVR isn't even in the ballpark as of my last try. So yeah. The list is also subjective. Hehe.

        • chuanxu says:

          I like Google cardboard, because Google has its special educational significance. For example, sending a lot of free cardboard for students.So one can exercise the child's ability to operate ,make full use of waste paper and enhance awareness of environmental protection. In addition, children experience the virtual world through their own labor.

    Is it really works? I heard what its the same as Oculus but cheaper just using smartphone. Who tried already?

  • Shanon says:

    Shame, shame! 

    virtual reality is for sinners. Jesus is all you need. What's next, virtual brothels? Shame, shame, shame.

    • Goose says:

      With your line of thinking please refrain from using any electronic devices as they are all sinning facilitation devices. In all honestly, your mind seems to be the one considering sin rather than revolutions in remote surgeries, space exploration, education, travel, emergency rescue, entertainment (including brothels) and much more...

      • videogames69 says:

        excuse me but lets just remember that the bible said that we should kill homosexuals and non believers but then you can realize not everyone is going to buy a $600 vr set to watch porn the people who use them use them for videogames to try to feel like they are the character they are playing as

        • -12SwAgGuY12- says:

          THE BIBLE SAID WE SHOULD BE KIND TO THEM AND TRY TO TELL THEM WUT THEY ARE DOING IS SCREWED UP 

        • DigitalAge89 says:

          for a so called Christian your mindset goes straight to Virtual Porn when everyone else in this feed are thinking of gaming and virtual reality classes especially in medicine. Hmmm... Looks like you should go back to church and have that mind cleansed again.

    • coltonb13 says:

      Not brothels, but VR porn is already here. Sorry.

    • unforgiven says:

      if that's the case then you need to get off the internet right now, sell all your possessions and follow him instead of  being a hypocrite trying to preach

    • unforgiven says:

      Well if that's the case you better get off the internet quick. Sell off all your possessions and follow him instead preaching what you obviously don't practice.

      • whatevah says:

        wanna try that again...? 

    • deattoms says:

      Oh how sad Shanon that you are stuck in the Dark Ages and in the mindset of a religion thrust upon this world by the ancient Romans as a last ditch effort to try to regain control of their dying empire. Put all that behind you....come with us! We are the ones headed into the New Age. An age devoid of fear, hate and intolerance of those that are different from you. We are the happy ones - discovering new technologies, new paths and new worlds - the sky is the limit and the universe is our playground. If that which created the universe didn't want us to have or discover all of these wonderful new toys then it wouldn't be so - nothing exists without the creator's approval. It must be such a terrible thing to live in that world of fear all the time!

    • videogames69 says:

      their are over 500,000 people who have vr headsets not to watch porn but to immerse themselves in the world the character is in like the far cry franchise or arma2 or dayz they use it for videogames and not porn and if you think vr is bad listen to your own bibles words

      deuteronomy 13:6-9  “If your brother, the son of your mother, your son or your daughter, the wife of your bosom, or your friend who is as your own soul, secretly entices you, saying, ‘Let us go and serve other gods,’ which you have not known, neither you nor your fathers, not consent to him or listen to him, nor shall your eye pity him, nor shall you spare him or conceal him he shall be put to death, your hand should be the first in putting him to death and afterward the hand of all the people.

    • starlord says:

      id rather go to a real one.   just sayin

    • Halex says:

      Virtual Jesus ?

    • Sayato says:

      I hope you're joking.The terms "virtual reality "and "virtual brothels" share only the word "virtual". I pray to God that you're joking. It's 2016.

    • Brethren says:

      I agree, Sharon. The kikes are pushing the limits.

    • rich2 says:

      Shanon Its all made up, life is forever God is everything, there is no sin just outcomes to your actions. God lives life though all of us and no part of God can ever be lost or castaway because everything is God. Hell does not exist only the hell  people  make for themselves because they don't over stand who and what they are because they have heard a lot of bad things about God. People think God will cast them into fire for all eternity, this is nonsense and very impossible because everything is God. We are all the physical manifestation of God, just different aspects of the same thing. God is the man in the car driving past your home, God is the child playing at the park, God is the wind that blows and the grass that grows. You are not separate from God you and God is one thing. Please try to respect the God energy in everything and move on from the primitive ideas about God and who you are. Life repeats itself because all there is is life. Live without fear and have give lots of LOVE for all, have a good life Shanon.           

    • RU4Real says:

      Isn't religion a virtual reality anyway? Whether Christian, Muslim or other, just a way to control masses and excuse the worst atrocities history has ever recorded. Oh, I forgot it depends on which religion you choose to determine what sins and what doesn't! Those who preach are the biggest hypocrites since they are the ones who feel it necessary to push their opinions and beliefs onto others effectively segmenting society and creating the divisions we so often see around us today. Boo to you Shanon!!!!

    • Saaaarcasm says:

      Wow, the comments... Ever heard of sarcasm people ?..

    • duck_manson says:

      I would chose porn over Jesus any day. Jesus is for children and idiots.

    • Infinitus says:

      Don't fret. You can visit a virtual Church, listen to virtual sermons, drink virtual wine, read a virtual bible, and pray to your virtual God. Praise the Lord VR.

    • zhawq says:

      Since we're already into idolatry, why not go for a virtual version of Jesus? I mean, all we hear so far are claims, with technology - virtual and otherwise - we at least have the ability to see how things work for ourselves. -- Of course, there's also the 'Good Book' without the added chapters about Jesus, it never fails and always delivers, all you need is to read with an open mind. -- Don't get me wrong, I'm just adding a bit of food for thoughts, and I do respect you worshiping Jesus, just don't make claims to know what you cannot know (you can have an opinion but that's another matter entirely). Be well.

      • zhawq says:

        P.S. My post was a reply to Shanon. I didn't realize she had so many responses already.

  • Nic says:

    How can you miss out Homido??

  • branman93 says:

    JUST THINK OF EVERYONE AT HOME THAT GETS A CONSTANT DISTRACTION AND CAN NEVER GET FULLY INTO THE GAME. THEY JUST CANT FOCUS SO WHY NOT BRING THEM INTO A SURROUND SOUND IN YOUR FACE, GAMING HEADSET THAT BLOCKS OUT NOISE AND LIGHT FROM THE OUTSIDE. JUST PICTURE PLAYING PER SAY A RPG GAME LIKE SKYRIM AND OF INSTEAD OF WATCHING IT FROM A DISTANCE ON A TV SCREEN BRING IT CLOSER SO THATS ALL YOU CAN SEE NOTHING ELSE . THATS WHAT GAMING SHOULD BE ACTUALLY FEEL LIKE YOUR THERE IN THE GAMEJUST NOT PLAYING .

  • Rizen says:

    (sigh) why not just use all of their resources and put them together so that way VRMMOs will become reality faster.

    • Demortes says:

      Competition brings about better stuff for consumers. Monopolies not so much. I get what you mean, but one solution doesn't fit all.

      • ExiHyp says:

        There is no actual competition. It's just the left and the right hands of the same body, to make an impression of a competition.

      • Steamerandy says:

        On one point I agree. On smart phone vr apps anyway. The use of controllers needs to be addressed. The controler options button maping, magnet or keyboard should by configurable. Some apps move in the direction you look. You can't look around to see were you might won't to go without moving in the direction you are look8ng. Others allow game controler to be used. Most intuitive is strafe, forward and back. Joy stick movement relative to view direction. We shouldn't have to be turing around in an our real environment that we cannot see with the headset on to control our orientation in the vr environment.  I originally purchased a cheap plastic cardboard headset. Just upgraded to a FreeFly headset. The field of view and optics were well worth it.  The.android app Halls Of Fear is a good example of controller use.

  • garymatt says:

    Am I the only one?  Sure the best finest most wonderful game in VR would be fantastic BUT for years and I do mean years I have lusted after what surely must be for sale somewhere by somebody: A computer connected head worn device that would just let you watch movies in big screen splendor, sound included.  Even strapping a phone to your face embedded in cardboard seems possible.  If only getting movies to phones weren't such hassle that has to be repeated for every movie.

    Griping aside, is there such a beast and I am just too out of touch to be able to find it? Oh yeah, preferably costing less than a Ferrari.

Of course most of our time is spent playing outdoors and enjoying nature ... Balance is important

  • sparkz says:

    I like the thinking behind the Vove but looking at the demo videos I notice the out of focus blurring doesn't seem that natural. Whilst "out of focus" objects are blurred internally, their edges are relatively sharp which makes the whole effect look weird IMHO.

  • Truegamer says:

    I think all of these VR gadgets are to VR what the Atari 2600 was to video game consoles back in the day. In other words, they're unwieldy, low-quality gadgets and hardly worth more than an eyebrow raise. In a few more years, they'll be ready for prime time. Right now, they're little more than novelties for those with more money than sense.

  • dougieconnor says:

    Why is no one mentioning Vuzix The iWear Video Headphones no VR in the Title but they are VR with HDMI input, built in android os. Not cheap but worth the price

    Well, I have all the game systems out.  I have a Mac.  The best new Mac Pro I could get.  After reading all the stuff I have read, on the VR things.  I am happy that I pre ordered the PS VR.  I have never had a problem with the motion controls for the system.  I do not have Windows 10.  If anything, I think of the three, PS VR will be on it's own.  The other two will be competing with one another.  Then, of those two, I really think the winner will be the HTC.  Requiring one to have Windows, just seems like a bad idea.  Right there, they limit those who can use them.  Plus, the computer you need to run the thing, limits it even more.  Same with the HTC thing.  I will get the PS VR.  If I like it, I will be happy to get newer ones from the company.

    Theres only one race going on for VR headsets. Whos going bankrupt 1st? This is nothing but a kinect eye piece. expensive with no reason to exist. 

  • Theorn says:

    I got a gear VR for free with my new Samsung galaxy s7 edge. My girlfriend tells me that it's great, but it's a useless piece of tech for me. My IDP is wider than the fixed size of the headset, so all I see are blurry comet trails that completely destroy the image to the point that I can't make out anything more than vague shapes. Headsets with out adjustable idp are worthless and should considered as such. Are there any headsets that can access a host of apps that will allow adjustment of idp?

  • Xin2wu says:

    can't wait for newest development where the headset combines functionality that not only reduce eyes fatigue but can also detect retinas movement. Imagine using that kind of headset with something like kinect that detect our movement plus using them on games with something like Cyberith's. Playing Final Fantasy or Bokujou Monogatari will be awesome!!! How many years will that be....hm

  • thrikanth says:

    The quality is fine and the comfort level is good.

    But to open it while using every time to select smthing is a burden...and I feel I might damage it if I open it every single time..
    Overall, a fine VR for the price but they could have a better job.

    "Can't we all just get along?"

    "All V. R. Matters".

    Or, was it lives? Was that yesterday or last week? 

    "Burn your Bra's", ya, that's the ticket!

    "Don't wear White after Labor Day"...

    "A bird in the hand", is worth, a bird in your hand... What no bush?  Bush went away with Mustache Porn in the 80's. Get the sheers! 

    Stop,  I'm going blind from all of this Virtual Junk-Spanking.

    It is, what it is; what is it? Virtual Reality,  of course. . .

    I'm not really writing this and you're not really reading this. 

    Wake Up... Wake Up! You've been in a Virtual Coma. 

    If you went on a virtual camping trip and you woke up the next morning with your virtual asshole covered in virtual vasoline and in virtual pain..

    Would you tell anyone?  No, you say?    **Virtual Campers Wanted, see Dr. Mel Practice for details. 

    I amuse myself.  It's okay, I'll be here all week. Tip your virtual waitresses.

    can we stop with "vr" its not the next big thing. too many Company's are scared to invest on something so pricey. The product is horrrible cause
    (The main product)
    1. the vr headset has no guts it has to take guts from your computer which normally people spend $200 or $300 for shitty 2.0 processor's (so this getting high number of sale is out of the option)

    (hardware)
    2. The controllers are just wii remotes, also its a headset with simple motion controls

    (Business)
    3. The device cost too much even more than a console which actually has guts not a fuckin screen in your face which cant even do that by itself without needing a monster ass computer

    In short "VR" is another failed product in the market

    Wareables always provide the best information. The garbage comments are ruining whatever they write above. Frustrating it is. 

    BTW! I am electronics and marketing geek running some great blogs like www.winodwspcdrivers.com

    Can anyone suggest what I should insert in this site about VR technology? Please guide me. 

    Thanks,

    I think the newest Xiaozhai Z4 BOBOVR VR Box 3D Glasses coming with 120° FOV 3D VR Virtual Reality Headset for 3D Movie Video Game for my 6.0 inches iphone being sold by a well-known UK YCCTEAM amazon seller deserve recommending on https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01G4U510S

    Given the the Xiaozhai Z4 BOBOVR VR Box,the eye adjustment for the lens is very helpful and means my girlfriend can use them as well. The foam around the face and nose makes them comfortable to wear for prolonged use, I had the cardboard ones before and they we're uncomfortable and left lines all over my face! Great for VR apps and work particularly well with 3D films
