What Headset Should I Get?

At www.wankzvr.com, www.milfvr.com and www.tranzvr.com, we specifically encode our videos for optimal use on the most popular and widely available VR headsets on the market. Although there are currently only a few reliable options, we are at a time when VR technology is advancing fast and new players are entering the market all the time. As new entrants arrive, we will strive to make sure that we support as many devices as possible and we fully expect that our VR videos will perform well on all headsets.

Options for any smartphone:

Google Cardboard – Cardboard is exactly as described, a VR headset made of corrugated cardboard. Generally is comes to you flat with pre perforated template lines and you simply fold it as the instructions describe. These headsets come with lenses pre-installed and generally offer some adjustability when it comes to focussing but not a lot of other functionality. Cardboard is definitely the entry level headset when it comes to VR, but because of its incredible affordability, it is a great way to test out VR before you really dive in.

Samsung Gear VR – Gear VR is an excellent VR headset designed specifically for use with the 2015 lineup of Samsung GALAXY flagship smartphones, including the Galaxy Note 5, the Galaxy S6, the Galaxy S6 edge and the Galaxy S6 edge+. Designed in conjunction with Oculus, (the leading VR technology company), the Gear VR brings with it the benefits of a dedicated VR headset while maintaining the affordability provided by powering the system using a smartphone. Unlike Cardboard, Gear VR has a touchpad right on the headset so you can navigate through menus easily, as well as easily accessible volume and focus controls. The headset allows access to your phones regular ports so that you can use the device while your phone is plugged in.

Dedicated VR options:

Oculus Rift – although the consumer edition of the Oculus Rift headset is not yet available (due out in Q1 of 2016), there are earlier versions of the headset which can be acquired on sites such as Ebay and Amazon. Oculus has been at the forefront of developing VR technologies for a couple years now and promises to change the landscape when the consumer version of its headset is finally released. Unlike the other headsets, the Rift will not require the use of a smartphone and will have a high quality built in display as well as integrated VR audio headphones. If you can gets your hands on one, this is definitely the optimal choice for VR!
