Panasonic Shiftall MeganeX
Let’s start this summary with the ultra-compact VR glasses presented by Panasonic at CES 2020. It will therefore have been necessary to wait 2 years to finally have an overview of the final product which should be marketed by Shiftall, a subsidiary of the Japanese manufacturer.
Called MeganeX (LunettesX in Japanese), these use OLED micro-screen panels and pancake lenses to come as close as possible to the design of a pair of Cyberpunk sunglasses with the most beautiful effect except perhaps these 2 vertical bars that break the visual a bit.
Pimax Vision 8K X
Pimax Vision 8K X is without a doubt the craziest and most power-hungry VR headset we’ve seen.
This VR headset has two 4K displays – one for each eye – along with an epic field of view and high refresh rate.
If you’re tech-savvy, have a powerful PC to run it on, and want the best, then this is currently for you.
Oculus Quest 2
The Oculus Quest 2 is another contender for best VR headset, and it’s not just because it’s one of the most affordable VR headsets around.
It’s a wireless headset that doesn’t need a PC to run, yet packs enough hardware inside to play some of the best VR games around.
Wireless virtual reality is glorious and gives you a lot of freedom. Other highlights, like manual tracking, upside-down tracking (i.e. no external sensors), passthrough cameras, and a smart guardian system, make Quest 2 incredibly fun to play.
HTC Vive Pro 2
HTC Vive Pro 2 is the upgraded version of HTC Vive Pro, and the best HTC has to offer.
It has the current best-in-class display, which boasts an incredibly high pixel count, excellent field of view and up to 120Hz refresh rate too.
Like the previous Vive Pro, it needs a high-end gaming machine to run smoothly but delivers a superb experience that stands out from the crowd.
Why resolution is the key?
Another key variable between different VR headsets, and, in fact, one of the main ways to tell the difference between them, comes down to the level of resolution they can give you. This is the number of pixels in their screens, as close to your eyes as they are, and the higher the number, the sharper the visuals will be.
