How to Choose a VR Headset for Smartphones – Buying Guide

Before you buy your VR headset, there are some key things to consider.

Choose a Headset That Fits Your Phone

Choose a Headset That Fits Your Phone
VR headsets have a compartment in front where you store your iPhone or Android. It’s important that the smartphone isn’t rattling around in the headset, since VR relies on splitting the screen into two sections. There’s usually a physical divider in the headset, which’ll tell you how you should line your phone up. If it’s skewed, you aren’t going to get that immersive experience.
So, it’s got to be snug. If your phone is too big, the compartment won’t even close. If your phone is too small, it will move around and need constant adjustment. That’s why the first thing you’ve got to do is pull out the measuring tape.

Find a Headset That Comes With Headphones

Find a Headset That Comes With Headphones
There are VR headsets that rely on your smartphone’s speaker. There are also headsets that have headphones built in. The latter makes it easier to get right into the experience. If you’ve got one that counts on your smartphone’s tinny speakers, then you can look always look out for a pair of Bluetooth headphones.
But the problem with headphones is that they may not mesh well with the VR hardware. The plastic might rub, or your devices may just start fighting for space. Instead of having to shop for a second set of headphones, it’s easier to get an all in one headset.

Myopics, Look at the Lenses and How the Screen Focuses

Myopics, Look at the Lenses and How the Screen Focuses
If you’ve got glasses, you’ve probably wondered if VR headsets will even fit on your face. The short answer is: yes. Most VR headsets treat all people fairly, regardless of eyesight.
You can also adjust how close the lenses are to your face, and how close the lenses are to each other. You can read on the box what its pupil and focal adjustments are, and some even come with alternate lenses meant to correct your usual near or farsightedness.
On average, VR headsets’ll support you up to about 600 degrees (that’s -6.00 diopters) in optical power. If you take off your glasses and everything looks like an Impressionist painting, you’ll need something that goes up to 800 degrees. But most headsets’ll deal with your myopia in the simplest way: they leave room for your glasses.
