InewVision Virtual Reality 3D Glasses with Bluetooth Remote Controller

This is a reasonable "VR" headset for getting your feet wet, but it definitely has short comings. Don't get this expecting to have an experience like you'd get on an HTC Vive or Oculus Rift...keep in mind that this is powered by your phone and not an expensive computer. I did like that I didn't need to get my phone out of the case in order to get it working on the headset, so definite plus for that.

The goggles themselves are decent enough, but they can get uncomfortable after 10 to 15 minutes since the padding is sort of lower quality and there is no padding at all where the nose goes. The lenses are adjustable so you can really get it configured to be rather clear for your particular eyesight. The field of vision is poor and I can clearly see the black edges which take away from how immersive it's supposed to feel. What I didn't like at all about this set is the joystick that comes with it. It connects via bluetooth easily enough, but the buttons never did anything for the VR games that I downloaded. They would turn the volume up or down, mute it, or act like the home button. That is an utter fail right there.

Overall, this is an OK set to get you accustom to using VR. You won't get a high end experience and the remote is garbage, but you can at least get a better idea of the concept and test your tolerance to the potential motion sickness people get.
