If you’ve been waiting for VR headsets to mature, you made a wise decision. Headphones have come a long way since the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive launched six years ago. Meta Quest 2 has been around for two years and has proven to be a very capable portable VR experience. And if you’re looking for a more immersive, hands-on experience, high-end PC headsets are becoming cheaper and more widely available at major retailers.
While the VR Headset market in general hasn’t changed much since last year (aside from the somewhat disappointing Meta Quest Pro), there’s at least plenty of VR experience to dive into.
So what are the characteristics of good VR glasses? In general, I judge VR headsets based on a few basic criteria: ergonomics, immersion and controls. Installing the phone screen in a plastic helmet and attaching cheap rubber bands to it is not difficult.
However, it takes skill to create something that is well balanced and doesn’t cause discomfort after 30 minutes. Immersion, on the other hand, just features high-resolution screens with a high refresh rate that make graphics sharp and smooth.
Field of view is also an important element as it describes how well VR screens can cover what you see.
The small field of view creates the impression of looking through binoculars, reducing the sense of “presence”.
The best VR glasses have a wide field of view that makes Google Earth look like it’s floating over a globe. And when it comes to controllers, the best options fall naturally in the hand for precise control.
The industry has basically embraced the design of Meta’s excellent touchscreen controllers, but we’ve also seen intriguing advancements, like Valve’s finger-sensing thumbsticks.
