Best VR Headsets in 2020 (April Reviews)

If you want to escape the real world and immerse yourself into the fantastical world of virtual reality, you’ll first need to equip yourself with the best VR headset. These fun devices carry quite a hefty price tag for beginners, but after we tested the top headsets available today, we can say with confidence that the price is worth the experience. When researching the best VR headsets, we looked for game variety, image quality (including how wide the field of view is), responsive motion tracking and included gaming accessories.

Oculus is one of the most well-known VR companies today with a dedication to quality and performance that is clearly apparent in the Quest.
