Best VR Headsets of 2020

For over a decade now, sci-fi flicks have promised us a future where virtual reality can teleport us from our regular lives into more exciting worlds.

Today a number of the world’s technology giants have brought us a step closer to realising those fantasies.

Though still a bit pricey up at its higher-end, there are a number of options available on the market for an interested buyer. However, one should take a few things into consideration before committing a portion of their hard-earned money on an item that won’t work well for their specific needs.

Points To Consider When Choosing Your VR Headset

One of the first things one should keep in mind when choosing a VR headset is what device they want to use the headset with. For example, a Sony PSVR set isn’t going to be of much use to you if you don’t already own a PS4 console. In some instances, device compatibility is also a point worth considering.

Second, but equally as important, is to ask yourself whether you want to fully immerse yourself into the world of VR enabled gaming, or do you just want to experience something different every now and then?

Last but not least, the recent explosion of reality means that there are a lot of new entrants to the market. Thus creating a wide variety of choices when it comes to design and more importantly, the price. In this business, you get what you pay for.

Here Are The Best VR Headsets That 2020 Has To Offer

Listed below, in no particular order, are some of the best VR headset options available for purchase.

Oculus Quest

This is a fine piece of immersive technology that was first introduced to the public’s purchasing domain in May of 2019. What’s also cool is that it does not need to be connected to a console or any other device for you to get going.

Although this device’s inner workings are nowhere near as powerful as the PC oriented Rift S model, it does a really fine job of minimising friction. Ease of use is a great argument in the case of the Oculus Quest.

Price: $399

Sony PlayStation VR

As far as unit sales are concerned, the PSVR is by far the best selling VR headset on the market. This makes a lot of sense considering that it does not require a premium PC or smartphone and that the PS store is not likely to run out of good quality games any time soon. All you need is a PS4.

Price: $350 – $470

Google Cardboard

This neat little project is by far the simplest and most affordable way to get in on the VR experience, and it is compatible with both Android and iOS devices.

This setup is as crude a VR experience as you can get. It is literally made up of a cardboard frame and plastic viewing lenses. To start viewing, all you need to do is download the app, and attach your smartphone to it.

Price: $7,99
