Description

The HTC VIVE Cosmos Elite is an advanced VR headset which you use with a gaming PC. Connect the Cosmos Elite to your computer or laptop with at least one NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 video card and get started in virtual reality. The tracking system supports 6 degrees of freedom, so the Cosmos Elite accurately tracks and registers all your movements, even when you jump and turn around quickly. With the built-in speakers, you no longer need a headset to receive audio from the glasses. You can easily fold the glasses up with the new tilting system when you're not using them. This comes in very handy if you want to put something aside or grab something. Via the headband, you can adjust the Cosmos Elite so it's always properly on your head. You can also adjust the lenses to your liking to always have a sharp image. On top of that, the chance of motion sickness is reduced with a refresh rate of 90Hz, so you can game in VR without any issues.

note: don't throw away the packaging. You'll need this if you need to return the VR headset for repair.

Definitely not recommended for this price

  • wireless
  • nice picture
  • Expensive for what you get

I did not like the product because of the high price compared to the tracking and possibilities with different games. Especially with a shooter it is impossible to aim because if your controller is too close to his face the tracking is almost no longer there. Returned the headset and bought the valve index

Great VR glasses with upgrade options

  • Inside out tracking
  • Wireless (optional)
  • Needs quite a lot of light for tracking

The cosmos is a great headset with the option to upgrade but augmented reality or scale tracking over the to outside in (lighthouse) tracking by simply changing the front plate, making the cosmos future proof. I haven't had any tracking issues so far but it does need enough Light to do well. With the wireless adapter you can make your play zone much bigger and even expand it to multiple rooms and you won't run into walls because of the chaperone security that turns on the cameras if you get too close to the boundary of your playing field. this allows you to see through the cameras what is in front of you.

Perfect for this price

  • Easy to install
  • Frequent updates with improvment
  • Batteries of controllers run out quickly

In the beginning this htc could have difficult focues when you bend over but that has been fixed with the latest update . And thanks to the built-in cameras, you don't need a setup with lighthouses

What an experience!

  • Comfortable
  • Good build quality
  • Miss price?

These were my first VR glasses. I couldn't wait any longer so I went for this one. It was a bit of a swallow in terms of price but once the box came I fell backwards. Wow what a first impression. Once you open the box you will see a fantastic organized compartment with all the parts . The base stations and their accessories . The controllers and the glasses. Also all numbered and the chargers labeled. So that there is really no ambiguity. The base stations are provided by valve from steam and use the latest steam tracking 2.0 . The controllers feel like PlayStation controllers , very robust and solid , feel great in the hand and all the best ? They have force feedback! . Once you've experienced that, you don't want anything else. The glasses what can I say when I saw them I thought what bulky that's going to be difficult. Especially because I have a very bad neck due to osteoarthritis and hernia. None of . Once you figure out how to adjust it perfectly, you're so used to it. You can feel it in terms of size but certainly not too heavy. . The picture quality was fantastic i tried with the latest game half live alyx and i was staring at my hands for the first 5 minutes ingame wow just wow . The padding of the headset is just heavenly the adjustment too. Advantage the iPd adjustment is mechanical, (that is the distance between your pupils). Once you get started with the supplied software you'll be away in no time, I thought this was going to be something but from the start you get very clear instructions and images and references to what to do, how, and in which steps. It was a great experience . The sound yes what can I say . I'm very sensitive to it and for earphones that don't even go over your ears it's a fantastic experience. In short, this headset is expensive, but I have not regretted it for a moment. The only downsides I think you have to take into account is the whistling of the base stations which can be a point of annoyance for some . And setting up the base stations takes a while. I must say that I just randomly arranged them and was very surprised at how well they followed the movements . Because of the tones once I had the headset on I didn't really mind anymore, which was strange considering I'm very sensitive to high tones. I'm happy to answer any questions anyone might have.

Fantastic!

  • Good image quality with a good graphics card
  • Good control with sufficient light

This is my first VR Headset so can't compare with other or previous models. I used to have 3D glasses, but then you were still attached to your monitor, now you walk in that 3D world yourself.

Good enough

  • Sharp image
  • Good sound
  • Controller Tracking

The image is very sharp compared to other VR headsets, and due to the lack of extra sensors also very easy to connect and use. The disadvantage of this is that the cameras have to see the controllers at all times, so that the movements are sometimes poorly perceived or disappear completely. Also, because of the use of cameras, your room layout and lighting is very important, something too dark and the device no longer sees your surroundings. The headband could also have been a bit better, you can't press the headset tight enough against your head, so that the image seems a little less sharp, and you also lose part of your field of view. If you have the space and can spend a little more, get a competitor VR headset, But for the money certainly a good headset, it is also just recommended.

Nice VR glasses.

  • Easy installation
  • design
  • Price

These VR glasses work very simply. The installation was simple and done fairly quickly. The design and wearing comfort of the glasses is pleasant. Especially the inside out tracking, which means that no lighthouses are needed, is a big plus and works as expected.

Good product and worth money

The headset has a very good image quality, good sharpness, can now see and read things that were impossible to do with the old vive, if it fits well, it is very sharp, it is nice, definitely recommended if you play vr a lot, definitely an upgrade over my htc vive with delux audio strap

Wait for other VR headset releases in 2020/2021.

  • nice picture
  • Good quality
  • Batteries of controllers empty quickly

No, because the batteries run out fairly quickly. I'd better wait for VR headsets like this to be released that have long-lasting controllers.
