    Not As Expected

    I was shopping in the mall during the holidays and a sales rep at a kiosk gave me a coupon for this item. He told me how they have it at 3 retailers for half off, so I went over to Best Buy and made my purchase. This virtual reality headsets are the new big thing, so I wanted to try it out. When I finally opened the package I was highly disappointed. As an Iphone user there wasn't that much content in the app store. I downloaded the app and viewed it through a few YouTube channels specifically for VR One. I noticed most of the content I had to turn my head to the left in order to stay focused and in line of what I was watching. The visual was at times blurry, resulting in giving me a headache and started to make me dizzy. The item does not come with headphones so you have to connect them to your phone to hear what you are watching. Luckily I finally opened the box up and tested it before the Christmas return deadline, because these were a sure return. VR one has potential, but needs improvement.

    The VR one is ok if you want a basic experience to VR with your Iphone6plus. The lens are big which gives better viewing than most VR and it accommodates people who wear eye glasses. It's light and easy to strap on comfortably. What I didn't like is that there are no hands-on controls on the VR One (like the Sansung VR Gear). Additionally quality Apps are VERY limited and for the price you pay $129, I would expect more compared to Samsung VR gear and/or better QUALITY Apps. However to get a general experience of what VR has to offer VR one is great as you can use with many phones including I phone6 plus. I took mine back because it got boring with the limited APPs and Functions and to keep having to scan GOOGLE BOX for VR apps gold old quick! .. I bit the bullet and purchased an Oculus rift which is another dimension in VR ...

    My Critique

    I honestly tried 3 different VR headsets from Google Cardboard to this Zeiss VR One Plus. The phone as screen VR headsets both were difficult to focus my vision and I believe are fundamentally flawed for that reason. I read many of the reviews before buying but the reviews did not characterize the obvious limitations of the 3D VR phone experience. I happily found the recently released and 5 times as expensive Oculus GO which solved my focus and 3D VR troubles. I believe the built in screen was the key, I have had no headache or focus problems with the GO and I am overall thrilled with what it can do. If I cant see clearly view the VR made the Zeiss headset unusable to me, regardless of the price difference. I believe that’s what matters most.

    I am amazed at the feeling I got when I viewed the samples with this headset! I had waited till the Zeiss came into the store as I wanted the exceptional optics that Zeiss is noted for! It was worth the wait! The universal smart phone tray holds my IPhone 6s plus, only without the protection case. The goggles are very comfortable for long periods of time. I would state though they can take a little getting used to. I wore them a little to long at first and became very dizzy after taking them off. I tried the roller coaster, an airplane simulation with dog fights, and a virtual tour in a museum. So I have not even gotten into the gaming aspects yet! These goggles are a high quality optical accessory that you will love to have!

    Non-Gamer review: Too much work for too little fun

    I'm not a gamer, per se. My only experience before buying this product was a VR system by vive, owned by a neighbor, which blew me away. While I was not expecting the VR One Plus to match it, I found the apps difficult to use and very, very limited. My biggest complaint was how many hoops you have to jump through if you're an iphone 6s Plus user with this visor, to watch a movie. I was also disappointed in the inability to surf the net. While the optics were clear, they did not compare in comfort or experience to the vive, which is a stand alone, wired system. I also thought the user manual was ridiculously useless, and there was nothing online to supplement it. I did see another user post a review with a link to a manual, but it was a pay-for-manual site, and I'm not doing that. I returned the unit, as I have better VR experiences to try than a roller coaster.

    Cheap Plastic

    The plastic that holds the phone was already broken when I took it out of the box. It was still useable and since this was the ONLY gift my daughter really wanted for Christmas I didn't bother with the hassle of exchanging. But then on the 11th day after opening the gift the other side broke. I TRIED EXCHANGING for the exact same item, but was told my the store manager that would not be allowed. It had only been 11 days since it was open. REFUSED to let me exchange, I didn't want a refund, just exchange for same item. I tried contacting Best Buy headquarters and was told they couldn't override the store managers decision. SO BEWARE if you buy from Best Buy you are buying their products AS IS. This has been an insane situation. Lesson learned, NEVER to buy from BEST BUY AGAIN.

    No Lens Adjust. Limited Apps. Not work most phones

    Because the lens are fixed, this headset will only work best with their apps. Lens quality of the headset is outstanding when used with their apps. Won't work, according to Amazon sellers, with 5 series or 7 series iPhones. I bought this and a Merge headset and returned this one. These are Cardboard type viewers, and Cardboard is the lowest quality VR experience. I have an Occulus Rift and there is no comparison, but the Merge headset was easy to use and works with nearly all phones. If you use an iPhone to play games, there are almost no controllers that actually work with iOS. If you have an Android phone, you will be able to get an inexpensive controller that works with nearly all apps. Have fun.

    A Much Better Alternative To A Disposable Headset

    Bought this on sale as an entry level introduction to virtual reality. Some people complained about it being too pricey but I appreciated the use of Zeiss lenses because I wanted the best lenses available in a smartphone headset application. That being said I would suggest that being aware of your phone resolution will greatly impact your viewing experience. I have an iPhone 6+ and still deal with the screen door effect when using the headset. It helps to reduce the brightness on the phone to minimize seeing the pixels. There are phones on the market with higher resolution and when I'm ready for an upgrade I will go for the higher resolution. All in all, if you find this during a sale and use promo discounts it's a good solid alternative to the disposable options.
