If you already are saving up for a Canon MREAL but mostly interested in a great VR experience, you might want to look at this fantastic headset for a fraction of the price. Experience a true 4K gaming experience and the most immersive headset on the market today. Pimax Vision 8K X is one of the most costly systems out there but can be combined with base stations from other brands like the Valve Index. So if you already have a base station and want the ultimate VR headset on the market, Pimax 8K X might be the right product for you.
Although the headset seems a bit heavy in the front and would be uncomfortable to wear for a long period of time, the weight distribution of the headset and strap adjuster in the back is perfect.
Games and Features – The Pimax 8K X is compatible with Windows and Steam gaming platforms. Så you will have a headset that supports most of the popular VR entertainment online without having to one or the other. Thanks to a dual native 4K engine, the color and graphics detail is matched by none. Using customized CLPL panels instead of traditional LCD or LED panels, you can decrease the subpixel distortion by 50% compared to other headsets. This gives you a clear and detailed image of any game out there.
Graphics and Processor – Pimax 8K X supports up to 90hz refresh rate, which is a bit disappointing compared to the Valve Index with up to 120Hz. But it is more than enough for smooth gameplay on most systems. But of course, to get the most out of your headset, it's important to have system requirements that will allow you to get the best experience on the Pimax 8K X without compatibility problems. According to the website, you need at least an NVIDIA RTX 2060 GPU, 8GB RAM (yeah right...), but we recommend upgrading these features if you know that this won't cut it on the games you want to play.
Hardware and components - The headset has the most immersive imagery out there, covering up to 200 degrees of your vision area, which is almost twice as much as cheaper models from competitors. The resolution is also astonishing, with 2560x1440 per eye. And this is exactly where Pimax 8K X beats its competitor second to none, you won't find any other headset out there that gives you the same visual experience when it comes to the visual specs of the VR headgear. The headset is equipped with a microphone, fantastic headset, USB, audio jack.
Extras and prices – The price is $1,299 only for the headset. So if you need controllers and lighthouse towers, we recommend pairing it with Valve Index gear that you can buy here. The total price with all the gear you need would amount to $1,800, and that's not including extra padding for your face or other comfort amenities. For those who already have other equipment, still this is quite costly for a headset. So why buy this than any other headset on the market? The 4K resolution is absolutely fantastic!
Conclusion – This is obviously a novelty product for those who want the absolute cutting edge VR experience. The screen resolution, frame rate, and 200-degree coverage make this the ultimate headset for first-person adventure and action games with the feeling of full immersion with the screen. The headset also comes with great headphones that really make the sound come alive.
But the only drawback is that they really don't have the best equipment for the headgear. Still, Valve Index is surpassed by none here if you want the best hand controllers and light towers on the market. So it’s reasonable to think if you're planning to invest all that cash in just the headgear, you might as well have the best control and interaction with the game as well.
A truly fantastic visual experience for all VR enthusiasts out there. Enjoy a fully immerging screen and 4K resolution to give you the cutting edge experience.
