VR Headset Buying Guide

Virtual reality is at the forefront of emerging technology. VR is creating public appeal but has also seen billions of dollars invested in tech startups from giant technology companies. It has produced virtual reality headphones of all shapes and sizes.

Since HMD (head-mounted display, another name for VR headphones) as we all know is still a relatively new technology, it can be difficult to choose from all the VR headphones on the market. You can also browse to get DJI FPV lenses to buy for your VR headset.

There are several types of virtual reality headphones:

• Connected VR headphones (also known as PC VR, Desktop VR)

• Headphone standalone VR (also known as VR All-in-One, Wireless VR)

• Headphones VR for smartphones (also known as mobile VR, VR viewer)

How to choose VR headphones?

Regardless of the type of VR headset, there are general categories of technical specifications to consider when choosing the right headset:

• Immersion

• Comfort

• Contents

The importance of these factors depends on the preferences and needs of consumers.


With immersion, we understand the feeling of being present in a virtual environment or the extent to which the human brain can be tricked. The more intense the headphones and/or experience are, the more you can feel that they're really there. Various factors can affect the quality of the immersion.


Position tracking is precise tracking of the position of the VR headphones (and therefore the position of the user). The more accurate the tracking, the better the immersion in VR. If there is a discrepancy or delay between the user's position in real life and in the game, it can greatly affect the user experience.

External tracking: Uses an external sensor and/or camera to accurately track the position of the headphones in confined spaces (room scaling). For a complete room, users need to install more than two sensors to avoid clogging.
