VR Headsets are more and more numerous. You can use them with your PC, your game console or even with your smartphone. It can be difficult to know which VR headset is the best for you. Here, is our selection of the best VR Headsets in 2018.
VR Headsets for PC and game console
First let’s talk about the VR Headsets for PC with the HTC VIVE. This VR Headset has been created by HTC and Valve (Steam). It is the best VR headset in terms of quality. The package of the HTC VIVE includes a headset, two motion controllers and two base stations. These base stations are used to define a “whole room” VR area. Thanks to this “whole room” you can use your headset while moving in the room. That mixes virtual reality and space recognition for a greater immersion. You need a large space to use the headset and define its “whole room” at least 8 square meters. The two motions controllers, are the most accomplished that exist. They are available for right-handed and left-handed users, they have a tactile and clickable pad and a trigger. The price of the headset is around 700€.
The HTC VIVE is also available with a Pro version: the HTC VIVE PRO: the definition goes to 1400 x 1660 pixels for each eye, or 2880 x 1660 for both, against 1080 x 1200 pixels for each eye with the simple HTC Vive model. However, the HTC VIVE PRO has always a refresh rate of 90 Hz and a field of view at 110° like the HTC VIVE. The price of the pro version is around 900€.
The Oculus Rift is also a very good VR Headset. It was the first VR headset. After a first version, the company has been bought by Facebook. With the pack you can have two joysticks: the Oculus Touch. The Oculus Rift is like the HTC Vive with 1080 x 1200 pixels for each eye. Its advantage is the price : around 500€.
The Playstation VR is the VR Headset created by Sony, especially for the game console PS4. This VR Headset is affordable (around 200€) and allows a veritable and unique VR experience. You need a Playstation Camera and a Playstation move controller to use the headset, it can seem a big investment, but it’s still under the price of the HTC VIVE or the Oculus Rift after buying the Camera and the motion controller. The advantage is that you can play with PS4 games compatible with VR.
