4 VR Headsets You Should Consider Getting In 2019

Virtual reality is slowly becoming a household name. If you want to make it a part of your household, here are a couple of headsets you should keep in mind.

Though it is not at all new, one thing we cannot deny is that virtual reality techs have been getting considerably more sophisticated ever since its commercial debut years ago. The increasing number of video games and media contents is a good incentive for you to, at last, get into it right here, right now. If you have already decided to make a go for it and are here to make that decision, well, we just got the thing for you.

There are some VR headsets that are expensive and cutting-edge, while some others are just 360-degree cinematic lens. See what’s good for you and order one.

Oculus Quest

This is the most versatile option that anyone can use, regardless of the specific use cases. It is an independent system by itself, which means it doesn’t require an additional machine to help it work. Furthermore, it’s also relatively cheap in comparison to competitors at Rs 28,645.

Spatial tracking and audio are both built in the headset, which means you can freely explore the virtual environment and experience sound directly via the headset without bulky connections to a separate computer. If you’re planning to share your VR experience with other people, the headset also allows you to cast the view straight to a smartphone or a smart TV.

The game library of the headset is quite extensive, but it definitely cannot beat competitors. But considering the price and that it doesn’t need you to connect it to a PC, it’s enough as the perfect balance between quality and price.

Playstation VR

I don’t think I need to talk a lot about the Playstation VR (PSVR) since it’s been on the shelf for quite some years now. But we cannot miss it out as the PSVR is still a very good purchase today, especially if you have a PS4. The true value is in all of the games on Sony’s PS Network that support it, and there are enough for you to enjoy consecutively for several months.

But the best thing about the PSVR’s age is that you just have to wait a while before it goes on sale. In fact, if you catch it on a very good day, you can get the headset and a bundle of several VR games for as low as Rs 14,322.

Tech-wise, in comparison to other headsets, the PSVR locks your native viewing resolution to just 1080p when competitors usually can go 2K+. But you shouldn’t just look at that and forego the PSVR entirely. It’s all about the experience and the extensive game selection, as I have told you before.

Check around the house to see if you have a PS4 around somewhere. If you do, this headset is a no-brainer. Buy it at your own risk, however, since the PS5 will come out next year and you really don’t care if your purchase could be made obsolete in just one year.

Oculus Rift S

What if you have a beast of a battle-station that you can rock every game - VR or no VR - without any trouble and you’re in need of a VR headset to the ensemble? Well, look no further than the Oculus Rift S. Although there are certainly headsets out there that are better functionally and technologically than the Oculus Rift S, it’s going to make the best of your money at Rs 28,645.

Just like the Quest, all of the necessary sensors are already packed right into the headset you don’t need to have any external sensors to bother with. But since this is the version that’s made to be hooked up with a PC, you’ll have a pretty long tether hanging from it.

If you have plenty of money to spare, don’t shy away from going higher with the HTC Vive or Valve Index. But if you’re trying to access VR on a budget, this is good enough.

Gear VR

Thinking that all of these headsets all seem to be too expensive for what you can spare? Well then, a smartphone VR headset will probably be a good fit for you right now. There is an uncountable amount of such headset floating around on the market at the moment. But if you just so happen to have a Samsung smartphone, the Gear VR will be awesome for you. And it costs only Rs 8,593.

This type of VR is more directed toward a 360-viewing experience than pure gaming like the previous headsets could offer. Although the Gear VR hasn’t been updated for quite a while and not optimized for newer phones like the Galaxy S or Galaxy Note. I’m fairly sure that they will work just fine with the headset. When you buy it, you will also find controllers packed inside as well.

Just in case you don’t own a Samsung smartphone, there’s Google’s Daydream headset to keep you amused and engaged.
