You don’t have to worry, because it looks very promising and it will change the way we understand the VR at our homes.

Choosing Comfortable VR Headset For Household Use

It features two elastic strap loops that you will put on your head. One will hold the headset level while the other will bisects your head. You can feel a slight pressure on the nose when you tighten up the straps. It has decent comfort for the price that you will pay.

The main disadvantage of design is inability to fit it if you wear glasses. That is why we recommend you to use lenses with this particular VR headset. It features two 1080 x 1200-resolution screens that have 110-degrees field of view. The refresh rate is 90Hz, which will provide you enjoyment that is more convenient.

The best hardware that will work with this particular VR headset is either AMD R9 390 GPU or Nvidia GTX 970. However, some software won’t integrate perfectly with them, which means that some software will appear better than others will.

Apart from the idea that you will be able to experience virtual reality, it uses only camera instead of sensor array. That means that you will have to stand in front of it to make the ideal experience. The disadvantage is that it lacks touch controllers. The integration with pair of gloves is not as fluid and natural as other VR headsets that you can find on the market.

In overall, Razer OSVR HDK 2 VR headsets is great solution for people who want to find the budget-friendly VR headset that will provide you an unique experience of virtual reality. However, you don’t have to expect the high-end features and efficiency as more expensive models, which is the disadvantage.

It is perfect for people who want the slight blink into the VR perspective.


• Open source features so that you can find different software
• The software are constantly improving so that you can enjoy all the way
• Affordable price tag which is perfect for people who want to have VR experience


• It doesn’t have room tracking and other sensors that will increase the experience
• You won’t be able to use it if you are wearing glasses at the same time
