Why are VR headsets so expensive
You just need to understand the 3 different types of headsets and you will see why there is a difference in cost.
1. Tethered VR Headsets - Most expensive, connected physically to a PC. Seen as the most immersive and best quality. More troublesome as you need to be near your PC and for fitness you cant take it to the gym.
2. Standalone VR Headsets - Cheaper option to tethered vr headsets, lower quality experience overall compared to tethered headsets. Overall still an amazing immersive experience and its great that its wireless and you can use at the gym and can walk freely.
3. Smartphone VR Headsets - cheapest option, makes use of your smartphone to provide you with the virtual reality experience. Just slide your phone into the headset, and the phone’s screen will be in front of their eyes with a set of lenses.
