Choosing a VR Headset

A virtual reality headset, viewer, or goggles for PC use are at the center of a VR experience, allowing you to feel more like you're actually part of a game or movie. Two features that can affect your virtual reality experience are the headset fit and the degree of latency, that is, the lag time or delay between when you turn your head or move your eyes, and the change in the VR point of view.

In order to surround you in the audio and video experiences of virtual reality games and cinema, a virtual reality headset encompasses your eyes and ears. You'll want a comfortable, snug fit that's not too tight — you don't want to become uncomfortable because of irritating friction against your nose or ears. Modern head-tracking and display technology make it possible to create a realistic, convincing VR experience with minimal latency, fortunate for those who experience virtual reality sickness symptoms due to a higher degree of latency when wearing a virtual reality headset.
