Update: now down to $298.49 shipped at Amazon.
Amazon offers the Samsung Hmd Odyssey+ Windows Mixed Reality Headset Bundle for $299 shipped. Find it at Newegg, as well as at B&H and Samsung for $1 more. Down from $500, today’s offer matches our previous mention and comes within $1 of the all-time low. Samsung’s Hmd Odyssey+ headset comes bundled with two motion-activated controllers. It immerses you in mixed reality experiences by pairing with a PC. Notable specs include built-in AKG headphones with 360-degree spatial sound, and a high-resolution AMOLED display. Plus, it improves on the previous generation version with Anti-Screen Door Effect technology and 1,233 ppi displays. Rated 4/5 stars from over 120 customers.
Those who may not have a capable PC or are devoted Mac users will want to look towards the Oculus Go instead. This standalone VR headset will only run you $249. It only includes a single, less capable controller, but allows you to experience virtual reality without any additional overhead.
Samsung Hmd Odyssey+ Headset features:
The Odyssey+ improves on its predecessor with Samsung’s Anti-Screen Door Effect technology. The Screen Door Effect (SDE) is a widely known issue for VR headsets, but Samsung solves it by applying a grid that diffuses light coming from each pixel and replicating the picture to areas around the pixel. This makes the spaces between pixels less visible. This provides a perceived 1233 ppi, which is doubled that of its predecessor’s 616 ppi.
