What's considered the best PC headset these days (After the Index?)

Going to get a new one on Black Friday after my old one got destroyed while I was looking after my moms puppy

Vive Cosmos? What did you have before? The lighthouses from the original Vive work with the index and the controllers so if you wanted to skip out on the index controller for now and get just the headset its a decent price and last time I ordered it said 8 weeks and my order approved after 5 days (Then I backed out because not a fan of VR sickness)

VR headsets right now break down into inside out tracking and outside-in(lighthouses)

If index is the benchmark, then vive cosmos with light houses would be next best? not too certain

then there's Windows MR but microsoft has semi-abandoned that, no new hardware other than HP Reverb G2, which was co-developed by Valve. However still same limitations as windows MR(moving the controllers out of view of the camera's does funky stuff as well as occlusion, sticking the controllers behind each other so that one controller blocks view of the other.)

then there's facebook/oculus with pc link, but then there's that whole TOS with facebook and the privacy and Terms of Use rules that will brick a Quest 2.

Also security researchers may have jail broken Quest 2 so complicated and maybe shady instructions needed to free quest 2 from facebook.

www.androidcentral.com/quest-2-has-allegedly-been-jailbroken-bypassing-facebook-login-requirement

not published yet due to possible legal action from facebook/updates to quest 2 units to patch the exploit.

Previously I had a Vive Pro, which I liked but hated the "screen door effect" of the image quality

Then I had a Samsung Odyssey+ which had an amazing image quality, but was uncomfortable as hell.

I'd rather avoid any Oculus since I don't have Facebook and dont agree with their TOS

The PSVR doesn't have a manual focus. It's its biggest flaw. For most people its fine. For far sighted people it makes it really difficult to focus on the images. I have used the samsung VR headset with phones and, with a manual focus wheel, I have been able to make the image perfect. Much much better than the PSVR.

So I'd imagine that would also affect people who've had laser eye surgery or wear contacts.

Well it was a nice dream thinking something might go on sale but no dice. Ordered an Ocolus Rift S at full price and made a bogus facebook account to get around their weird tos bs.

Woulda loved a Vive Cosmos Elite or Valve Index but $1000+? Not gonna use it that much

Bought a Quest 2 for my kids for Christmas. Wanted to make sure it was up and running on Christmas day so set it up last night after they went to sleep. First time with VR. So freaking cool. Any must have games for me? Oh yeah, and the kids aged 7 and 9.

Quest 2 is recommended by Facebook for kids 13+

also as a safety feature make sure the device is casting to either a tv or phone for supervision purposes.

Boy am I having fun with the Oculus Quest 2. I had already sold my soul to facebook so I am ok with it all.


The Vader immortal series is a tonne of fun. I have probably logged 30 hours this month playing PokerVR as well.

Does the Occulus have a manual focus?

We are playing a lot of Beat Saber, Virtual Job and just starting to get into Onward, Pistol Whip and Super Hot. We bought the bundle of 5 games to save 25%. Vader Immortal looks great. The Vader Immortal pack is on sale today.

Knut, are you casting it to your tv or monitor so people can watch along with the person using the headset? I think my only answer is to go pick up a Chromecast to do that. We are casting it on a smart phone but that obviously isn't ideal.

Yeah I bought a chromecast for it. We are using it to cast other things as well right now snd it works better than Airplay so far.

I just got back and set up the chromecast. Worked like a charm.
