General | Latest Info

Virtual Reality headsets have been changing shape over the last few years. On ONE end are tether options like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive, self-contain display systems that connect to computer. On the other end are mobile phone-base headsets like Samsung Gear VR and Google Cardboard devices, which rely entirely on the installed Smartphone for both processing and display. ZEISS was in the former camp three years ago with Cinemizer OLED Headset, but it's switched to the latter with VR ONE. The $120 VR ONE is Smartphone-brand-agnostic, but questionable control omission hurt its usability. Design VR ONE looks and feels like a simpler, non-Samsung version of Gear VR. It's white matte plastic visor with a glossy, transparent front plate. It attach to your head with three elastic straps secured by buckles and hook-and-loop fasteners. Two of straps meet horizontally around the back of your head, and the third connects over the top. Top Strap helps ensure that the headset will stay in place, just like Gear VR. Foam padding lines the face mask part of the headset, but unlike Gear VR, it's permanently affixed rather than Removable. While VR ONE is slightly larger and heavier than Gear VR, it contains none of the electronics present in Samsung's Headset. Gear VR boasts additional sensors and touch pad controller on the right, plus a pass-through micro USB connector for keeping your instal phone charge. VR ONE contains only a plastic shell and Carl ZEISS Optics. Despite its greater weight, it's still comfortable to wear. Smartphone Trays Unlike Gear VR and various Google Cardboard devices we've test, VR ONE doesn't use a removable front plate and build-in Smartphone holder to secure your attached phone. Instead, Smartphone Tray slides out of the side of the headset to snugly fit your phone of choice. VR ONE optionally includes phone-specific Tray For iPhone 6 / 6S, Samsung Galaxy S5, or Samsung Galaxy S6 for an extra $9. Include Galaxy S5 Tray, our VR ONE comes with hold phone securely and makes micro USB and headphone ports readily available. If you don't have ONE of four Smartphones supported by available Trays, you can download files and 3D print your own. These files are free to download, and include LG G3, Google Nexus 5, HTC ONE M8, Samsung Galaxy S4, Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, and Sony Xperia Z3 versions. You can also print replacement Galaxy S6 Trays, though files for iPhone 6 / 6S and S5 Trays aren't currently listed on Zeiss' site. The option to download Tray files is nice, but it assumes you have access to a 3D printer. If you don't, and your phone isn't ONE of the models prefab Trays work with, you'll have to go to the extra step of having service print ONE for you.

Design

ZEISS VR ONE Plus features a premium-looking design with its adjustable and removable head straps and high-quality Velcro that help provide users with a perfect fit-even for users who might want to try out the device with eyeglasses. Another great addition and premium-feeling material in this device is the cushion around the headset. The sponge-like cushion makes using it very comfortable for any given period of time, all with solid overall construction. VR ONE Plus features a detachable Smartphone tray capable of holding phones of up to 5. 5 inches. Like head straps, Smartphone tray uses cushion in order to have your Smartphone align perfectly with the tray for an easier headset aligning experience. Something to note, however, is that fit on Smartphone tray is so precise and snug that having some type of screen protector might prevent the Smartphone from correctly fitting in tray. While this is definitely not a deal-breaker by any means, it is important to note in case you are planning on buying this device and already have a glass protector on your Smartphone. VR ONE Plus features cut-outs on both sides for Smartphone tray to slide out, as well as another cut-out for your smartphones camera sensor. This allows VR ONE Plus to be able to see forward for apps that might take advantage of your device's camera.

Performance

The Zeiss VR One Plus Headset is a passive virtual reality headset with a solid build for your iOS or Android smartphone. It is a nice upgrade from your Google VR Cardboard Headset and supports larger format smartphones from 4. 7 to 5. 5 VR One Plus is basically a Google VR Cardboard, but a nice one. The unit looks polish with premium feel and is very comfortable to wear. Fit is a bit top heavy depending on what device you have inside the tray, however theyre all like that to a degree. Theres some good Cardboard content out there so get viewing, its pretty cool. Great for 360 video and augmented reality, maybe even some 1 person quad-copter flights.
