What are VR glasses?

VR glasses or virtual reality glasses are a device that you place over your head. On the inside there are lenses and a screen that show the wearer a virtual world. They are mainly used to play video games. But they can also be used for commercial purposes. For example, there are simulations where you can practice driving a forklift.

But the car manufacturer BMW is also responding to this by giving visitors the opportunity to configure and view cars in VR . In addition to lenses and a screen, VR glasses consist of various sensors such as gyroscopes and accelerometers to measure your movements and convert them into the virtual world. We have written this article for people who mainly want to use it for playing games.

Type VR glasses

Tethered VR headset

  • Tethered VR glasses are always connected to a PC via a cable.
  • These types of VR glasses have the highest image quality and deliver the best immersive experience.
  • The disadvantage is that they are quite expensive and they also need to be connected to a powerful PC.
  • You are physically connected to a computer via a cable, which means you have limited room to move.
  • The Oculus Rift S, HTC Vive and Valve Index are examples of such VR glasses.

Standalone VR glasses

  • Standalone VR glasses have internal hardware and can therefore be used without a computer.
  • Because they use a mobile graphics card, they have a lower image quality.
  • You have complete freedom of movement because you are not attached to a cable.
  • The Oculus Go or the Oculus Quest are examples of standalone VR glasses.

Brilliant VR smartphone

  • There are also VR headsets for smartphones.
  • These use the screen of your smartphone to create a 3D image.
  • Because the possibilities are very limited, we have not included this type of VR headset in this article.
  • Examples include the Zeiss VR One Plus or the Google Cardboard

Compare VR glasses

  1. Resolution

The higher the resolution, the higher the image quality. That is what we would always think at first sight and that is not wrong. The original HTC Vive released in 2016 has the lowest resolution and limited image quality. But the image quality of VR glasses depends on more factors than just the resolution. For example, the Oculus Rift S had a low resolution and we did not expect much from the image quality.

But Oculus has been able to use software to ensure that the screen-door effect is reduced to a minimum. In addition, the headset fits well on your head, resulting in minimal light leakageis. As a result, the image quality of the Oculus Rift S is a lot better than you would expect on paper.

The latest VR headsets such as the Valve Index, Oculus Quest and HTC Vive Pro use a screen with a resolution of 2880 x 1600 pixels.

On paper you would think that the Oculus Quest has a better image quality than the Oculus Rift S, but that is not the case. Aspects such as refresh rate and field of view are much lower with the Quest because it uses a mobile graphics card. Resolution certainly plays a factor in image quality, but there are several factors that you have to take into account.

  1. Refresh rate

The refresh rate indicates how often the screen of the VR glasses refreshes the image. The refresh rate is mainly expressed in Hertz, which is shortened to Hz.

Chances are that the computer screen of your laptop or desktop has a refresh rate of 60 Hz. This means that the image is replaced 60 times per second. Just like most screens, the minimum refresh rate of VR glasses is 60 Hz.

But the better VR glasses have a higher refresh rate. This is because a higher refresh rate gives a better immersive experience in the virtual world. If the refresh rate is too low, you will experience nausea or headaches as a user.

The Valve Index has the highest refresh rate on the market at 120 Hz. They’ve even launched an experimental mode so you can go down to 144 Hz.

  1. Field of view

Field of view or field of view (FOV) is an important aspect in determining image quality. It refers to how much of the virtual world you can see at once without turning your head. The wider the field of view, the better the  immersive experience of the VR glasses will be.

In reality, an average person has a field of view of about 135° degrees. The Valve Index is the only headset to come close to this. Though it depends from person to person. The fact is that the distance between the lenses and your eyes can be adjusted with the Valve Index.

The closer you place the lenses to your eyes, the wider your field of view will be. How close you can place the lenses to your eyes will depend on the shape of your head and the length of your eyelashes. This is a unique function that currently only exists with the Valve Index, other VR glasses have a fixed field of view.

  1. Tracking

With 3-DoF VR glasses (DoF = Degree of Freedom) there is only rotational tracking. Such VR glasses can register when you look left or right and when you look up or down. Due to the limited tracking, you can only play a limited number of games with these VR headsets.

In addition to rotational tracking, the HTC Vive also uses positional tracking. This means that it can register when you move forwards, backwards or sideways. This is done on the basis of built-in infrared LEDs to estimate your position. In other words, these VR headsets have 6-DoF because they have both rotational and positional tracking.

  1. Screen type

VR glasses use different types of screens. The HTC Vive has a wide field of view and a high refresh rate because it uses an AMOLED screen. Other glasses use a cheaper LCD screen. The advantage of LCD screens is that they have a higher pixel density and are more affordable.

The downside is that they have a slower refresh rate and the screen heats up faster. This makes it less comfortable to use for long periods.

  1. Guarantee

In Belgium you are entitled to at least 2 years warranty on your purchase. This is no different when purchasing virtual reality glasses. There are no manufacturers that offer more warranty than the standard 2 years.

The advantage of HTC is that they offer a pick-up and return guarantee on all their VR glasses. In concrete terms, this means that HTC is responsible for the collection, repair and return of the purchased product.

Best Standalone VR Goggles: Oculus Quest II




The Oculus Quest 2 is one of the best standalone  VR glasses you can buy right now. It is equipped with all the necessary internal hardware so that you can play VR games without a computer and without cables.

In addition to a built-in processor, the headset also has four built-in cameras that scan the room around you. This allows the Oculus Quest 2 to know when you are moving forwards, backwards or sideways. In addition to positional tracking, the built-in cameras can also scan the movements of your hands.

A better innovation compared to  hand tracking is the Oculus Link. This allows you to connect Quest to your computer via a cable. This will give you access to the entire Steam VR library. With this, Oculus has eliminated one of the pain points of the Quest.


Thanks to Oculus Link, the Quest now gives you access to the same games as the Rift S. The Oculus Quest 2 (with a storage space of 64GB) is the same price as the Rift S. It has a higher resolution and an OLED screen. And you can use it without a cable to play mobile games or with a cable to play games like Half-Life Alyx  .

The updated Oculus Quest 2 uses improved screens. Where the resolution of the Quest was only 2880 x 1600px, we now move to a resolution of 3664 x 1920px. The screens are also different, the new Oculus Quest uses Fast Switch LCD screens, compared to the OLED screens of the Quest I.

With normal use, the battery lasts about two hours, but you can connect an external battery to these VR glasses to to solve that. In terms of storage space, you can choose between a 64 GB and a 128 GB version. For most people, 64 GB is sufficient, since most VR games are less than 3 GB in size.

The design is comfortable and with a weight of 530 grams it is very light. A small downside is that all the weight is in the front due to the built-in hardware.

Best VR goggles for PC: Valve index




The Valve Index is currently the best VR goggles you can buy. It has very good picture quality thanks to a high-resolution LCD screen and a refresh rate of 120 to 144 Hz. However, we cannot recommend it to everyone because at the time of writing it is being sold for 1,079 euros.

There’s no question that the Valve Index has better picture quality than the Oculus Rift S. But for double the price, it’s just not worth it for most people. If, on the other hand, you are looking for the best VR experience  for gaming, the Valve Index is the best VR headset for you.

The 120Hz refresh rate is a big improvement over the Vive’s 90Hz. There is even an expired 144 Hz mode. This is excellent news for people who get sick of VR games. The higher the refresh rate, the less likely you are to get sick of moving images.

But a high refresh rate also provides a better immersive experience thanks to a realistic rendering of images. Because it uses an LCD screen, you are less bothered by the screen-door effect because each pixel has full RGB sub-pixels. This is a huge improvement in image quality. The disadvantage is that an LCD screen is less good at displaying black colors compared to an OLED or AMOLED display.

Unlike the Oculus Quest and Rift S, the Valve Index does not use  inside-out tracking. The two built-in cameras only serve to display the real world without having to take off the headset. To do positional tracking, the Valve Index uses two base stations. The disadvantage of this is that you have to hang it on the wall or put it on a stand. In addition, they also need to be connected to your PC with a cable and plugged into a power outlet.

The advantage of base stations is that the controllers can be tracked more accurately. The Oculus Quest’s tracking can sometimes fail when your controller is behind your back. An additional advantage of the base stations is that they are suitable for rooms of 10 by 10 meters.

There is a physical slider to control the interpupillary distance. In addition, there is also a rotary knob to place the lenses closer or further from your eyes. By bringing the lenses closer to your eyes, you can increase the field of view . How close you can get the lenses to your eyes varies from person to person. Ideally, they should be far enough from your eyes that they don’t touch your lashes.

Because you can control the lenses and therefore also the field of view , Valve does not give an official figure. From experience we can say that the field of viewwas better for us compared to that of the Vive and the Vive Pro. In terms of comfort, the headset is easy to adjust.

The cushions feel comfortable and are suitable for long-term use. There is even an extra pillow with memory foam for people who like it. The speakers sound amazingly good and can be moved around easily. There is a 3.5mm headphone jack if you want to use your own earphones or headphones.

Cheap VR glasses: Oculus Go




Just like the Quest, the Oculus Go is a city-alone VR headset. But the Oculus Go costs only 200 euros and is a cheap way to play VR games. You don’t need a PC, base stations or cables.

The headset is equipped with all internal hardware to run VR games. The internal hardware is similar to that of a smartphone. A Snapdragon 821, 3GB RAM and an internal storage space of 32 or 64GB.

In addition to the headset, the Oculus Go also consists of one controller. The controller is small and light and works on the basis of an AA battery. When setting up the Oculus Go, you have to choose whether you want to use it left-handed or right-handed. You can always adjust this later in the settings.

The quality of the image is surprisingly good for VR glasses that cost only a fraction compared to the Valve Index or the Vive Pro. It uses an LCD screen with a total resolution of 2560×1440 pixels. This is as much as the Rift S and a lot better than the original HTC Vive (which still sells for more than 600 euros).

By using an LCD screen, the  screen-door effect is  reduced to a minimum, which improves the image quality. Unfortunately, its biggest flaw is the 60Hz refresh rate. In fast paced games like  Coaster Combat   I personally got sick after a few minutes. The 2,600 mAh battery lasts about 2 hours before you need to charge it.

What we do like about the Oculus Go is the ease of use. You don’t need a PC, base stations or cables to play games. You can play VR games at home, with a friend or even outside. In contrast, there is no positional tracking. The Oculus Go therefore does not know when you are moving forwards, backwards or sideways.

It can only handle rotational tracking (movements of your head). And due to the limited power of the built-in hardware, you are also limited in which games you can play. We like most games, but they aren’t really designed to be played again.

It is therefore a great VR headset for casual gamers or people who want to watch 3D movies. Unlike the Oculus Quest, you cannot connect the Oculus Go to your PC using Oculus Link. Half-Life Alyx  can play.

There are built-in loudspeakers provided in the strap. These are not really good but luckily a 3.5 mm headphone jack is provided. You can connect your own headset or earphones for a better  immersive  experience.

The headset itself is comfortable to wear but is  front heavy. This is because all the hardware is in the front of the headset. This puts extra pressure on the nose, which is quite noticeable after half an hour of gaming.

Which VR glasses we advise against 

The original Vive was released in April 2016 and despite being 4 years old it still costs between 650 and 700 Euros. Because the Oculus Rift S is available for 500 euros and has better image quality, we recommend it.

The HTC Vive Cosmos costs 799 euros, which is 300 more than the Oculus Rift S. The resolution is better than that of the Rift S, but the problem is mainly in the large and heavy controllers. Due to their size, they are not comfortable to use for long periods.

In addition, there are a lot of users who have tracking issues because the controllers freeze when you bring them to your face. The image quality is certainly better than that of the Oculus Rift S, but due to the higher price, clunky controllers and tracking issues, we do not recommend the HTC Vive Cosmos for the time being.

The HTC Vive Pro Bundle costs 1,199 euros and can best be compared with the Valve Index. Despite costing more than the Valve Index, it has a lower refresh rate and narrower  field of view. The Valve Index also comes with a free version of Half-Life Alyx.

The HTC Vive Pro Eye is for commercial purposes and we cannot recommend it to gamers. It is a very good VR goggle that uses eye tracking to do foveated rendering  . This is a technique that increases the resolution of the image your eyes are focused on.

You will then see the image in the corner of your eye in a lower resolution. Currently, this is mainly used by companies such as BMW that have created a digital showroom where you can virtually view cars.

DJI Goggles are specifically designed for use with DJI drones. They are not designed for playing games.
