General | Latest Info

VR in 2020, in a world where people are more distant from each other than ever, has taken on different meaning. VR still can't be a workplace or social gathering spot I'd like it to be, but it's closer. Oculus Quest has become the closest thing to home VR console that VR's ever had. But VR is also in flux right now, as technology is ever-evolving. VR games this year have been better than ever, thanks to Valve's VR masterpiece Half-Life: Alyx, and more recently, Star Wars: Squadrons. But you still have to choose whether you want a headset that plugs into your PC or console, or choose a standalone option like Oculus Quest. At the moment, new Oculus Quest 2 is the best, most affordable option for VR, but it requires a Facebook account to work. More changes will come. Companies such as Qualcomm are building new chips that point to a wave of better standalone headsets at lower prices-including ones that plug into your phone. Meanwhile, older mobile VR or phone-base VR headsets, like Samsung Gear VR and Google Daydream, are basically dead. A good number of current iPhone, Android and app options don't even work with old mobile headsets anyway. If smartphone-base VR comes back, it'll more likely be in the form of small headsets that plug into phones via USB-C for VR gaming and other uses. Regardless, if you're PC gamer, solid gaming PC-connect VR headset offers the most versatile collection of software for immersive VR experience and lets you use that headset for creative and business tools. Note that more powerful VR systems will still be largely tethered to desktop or laptop, and PC VR headsets may require external sensors, so they may not be the best option for everyone. And what about console gaming? Aging PlayStation VR is still fun if it's on sale and you have a PS4, mainly because there are loads more great games for this device than you'd think. But keep in mind that PlayStation 5, while it works with PSVR, will require PS4 accessories to work with VR. Just know that the VR is still here, but the VR experience is evolving. Augment Reality, or AR, and Mixed-Reality headsets aren't ready yet, so in the meantime, solid VR goggle and rig is your best bet for escaping to other worlds. When we look for a VR device, we're in the market for something that offers solid motion tracking, syncs well with our controller, and offers a solid gaming experience. Read on to figure out which is the best VR headset for you. We update this periodically, but note that prices are subject to change. Read more: Want to play Half-Life: Alyx? Here's VR Gear that works at 300 with nothing else needed. Oculus Quest 2 delivers virtual reality games and an immersive VR experience anywhere.

Flaws but not dealbreakers

Who it for: People who are sure they will use a VR headset more than a handful of times. Why we Like It: Among seven inexpensive Mobile VR headsets we test, Merge VR / AR Goggles offer the best combination of price, comfort and adjustability. Theyre made of soft, squishy foam that rests nicely on most face shapes. Sliding knobs-which double as buttons for interacting with virtual content-let you change spacing between lenses to suit your eyes. The headset also has a removable front section that exposes your phone camera, allowing you to use augmented Reality applications. If you are more interested in augmented Reality, optional accessory called Cube supports AR games and educational experiences. It is compatible with screens between 4. 85 and 6. 2 inches, which means it works with nearly all smartphones, including iPhones. Flaws BUT not dealbreakers: Merge VR Headset is a big step up from the official Google Cardboard Headset, BUT its cheaply made compared to Daydream View and Gear VR. Headset eventually begins to feel front-heavy and warm, and people with larger heads may feel that it press into their face from the start. Merge VR is compatible with Google Cardboard ECOsystem of apps, which generally use less processing power and do not communicate directly with the Headset. As a result, they tend to look and feel lower in quality than those made for other categories of VR headsets. Despite there being an incredible amount of Cardboard content available, you wont find apps that overcome this basic limitation.


The best standalone VR headset: Oculus Quest

Who this is for: Gamers interested in high-quality VR experience but do own or do want to be tether to a PC, console or Gear VR or Daydream-compatible phone. Why we like it: Oculus Go is the first good standalone VR headset: it doesnt require tether to an expensive computer or gaming console. It is also simpler and better to use-and available to more people-than mobile VR headsets, which require you to use a compatible Android smartphone for their screen, processor and battery. Oculus Go shares Gear VRs expansive library of games, which means that it gives you more to do than other mobile VR headsets. Its handheld controller is larger and more comfortable than other mobile handset controllers, and it is easy to use. However, if you have a smartphone thats compatible with either Gear VR or Google Daydream View mobile VR headsets, you should get one of them instead. Flaws but not dealbreakers: Oculus Go is not as comfortable or immersive as Lenovo Mirage Solo-only other available standalone VR headset-but it costs nearly half the price. It also suffers from the same problems as any other mobile VR headset: its screen quality and calibre of available games and other apps are limited compared to desktop headsets, so most people will get limited value out of it.

What about mobile VR?

Today, there are two technologies competing for your reality-distorting dollar: Virtual reality and augmented reality. Virtual reality employ either video or computer generate graphics to transport users to another place. VR users wear a closed, head-mount display that completely blocks out the world. Popular head-mounted displays can be either traditional or mobile. Mobile VR headsets often make use of phone or other portable device to provide display and computer power needed to render a VR world. Traditional headsets have their own displays, and rely on computers and gaming consoles for computing muscle. Applications designed for mobile headsets are typically less graphics-intensive than those designed for traditional headsets, due to the limitations of mobile computing. Instead of sending you to another place, augment reality projects virtual objects and information into the world around you. These projections can include real-life items, like furniture you're interested in purchasing, or fantasy creatures as part of gaming experience. Today, augment reality is mostly available via smartphones.
