The Best Budget VR Headset on the Market Available Now

It looks like each era of computer technology has its own representative amongst the different types of gadgets. Late last year was all about the revival of smartwatches while the last decade as a whole was about smartphones. This year, a great deal of focus is set upon VR headsets and gadgets that go on or around your head in general. Many people are eager to get the latest headsetplus headsets, so why not take a look at some of the best VR headsets available on the market right now for a more than reasonable price. Here are the top budget solutions for both Android (News - Alert) and iOS lovers in terms of VR technology.

Homido VR

One of the great qualities possessed by this product is the fact that it is compatible with some of the larger phones on the market, making it ideal for those who possess the titans of mobile tech. Devices such as the OnePlus One or iPhone (News - Alert) 6 Plus have no problem fitting in, and the quality design for face support makes it so that you don’t have to endure their weight with your face.

For a reasonable price of about £50, this headset is a good buy as it offers a 100 degree field of view and brings other features in terms of sight tweaking as well. One of them is the ability to personalize the device for people having trouble with near sight or far sight, so having glasses won’t ruin the experience.

Samsung (News - Alert) Gear VR 2015

This device is similarly priced to the other entry in this top, clocking in at £55. That’s a great buy as far as the price is concerned, and the Samsung logo gives weary consumers a much needed guarantee of quality. You can’t be too careful when buying a budget-anything, as often times a lower price just means lower quality. Samsung steers clear of that concept however and delivers this VR solution that works with its top of the line smartphones such as the Samsung Galaxy S series (Samsung Galaxy S7, S7 Plus, S6, Galaxy S6 Edge, Note 5, etc.)

The advantages of this headset are its built-in sensors such as the gyroscope and accelerometer, not depending on the smartphones it enables for these features. Additionally, the headset is praised for its crisp images that manage to win in this category by a long shot since there’s no sign of the blurry imagery users get with some of the other headsets.

Freefly VR

For those looking for a budget solution that is hard to categorize as “budget” to begin with, the Freefly VR headset might just take the cake. It comes with great padding on the device, the faux leather being one of its best characteristics, because a great VR headset also needs to be comfy, not just packed to the brim with the best parts. Long sessions of VR gaming or exploring worlds in first person can be kind of tricky if your body is calling you back to reality with the constant sweat and face sores. Outside of that, this headset comes with a great Bluetooth controller which features a joystick. This makes navigation with the Freefly a breeze, and it’s why a lot of people are looking into this model.
