What are the types of VR Headsets?
Since Vivid Vision supports so many various virtual reality (VR) headsets, it can be a bit overwhelming deciding which one is right for you. There are three main categories:
- Phone-based headsets - DayDream, Gear VR
- PC-based headsets- Rift CV1, Rift S, HTC Vive, WIndows Mixed Reality
- All in one headsets (AIO) - Oculus Quest, Pico Goblin, Oculus Go
What's the difference between these headsets?
If your phone is compatible with the phone-based headsets, this is usually the cheapest option. We recommend going this route first. Please visit this link to check if you have a compatible phone. If you don't have a compatible phone, don't worry. The AIO headsets are the best option for you.
Some high-end computers also support virtual reality. You can compare the specifications of your computer to the recommended requirements of the pc-based headsets. If your computer isn't compatible, this is often the most expensive option to get started. We would only recommend going this route if you are a high-graphics user or plan on using the headset to play games.
The all in one headsets are the cheapest option if you don't have a compatible phone or computer system. The headset is wireless and comes with all the accessories needed.
