The PIMAX headset is the first VR headset providing a 4K UHD image at a stunning resolution of 3840x2160P and 8.29 million pixels as the name suggests. This means once you wear it, everything will be seen in other colors. You will find yourself in another world that is brighter, more colorful and though you’ll know it’s a virtual reality, almost everything will convince you’re the opposite. The main competitors of this device are thought to be Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and SONY PSVR VR, but they provide less resolution, 2160x1200P that means this headset is a head higher than all the other similar products. Thanks to the PIMAX 4K UHD Virtual Reality 3D Headset we can proudly announce the VR industry has entered a new era of 4K.
Generally, the higher resolution is, the more difficult the headset has when rendering big games. So you have to own a powerful PC or game console to use all the features of this headset. Moreover, many have been thinking 4K technology on such devices may cause vertigo, but as the manufacturer mentions, there is an improved “anti-vertigo” double gyroscope controlled within 18ms. Plus the built-in anti blue laser lens with auto light adjustment and auto demisting systems will protect your eyes and help the headset provide the best experience of using a VR headset when wearing long.
The PIMAX VR headset adopts 1000Hz dual gyroscope and reduces the dizzy sensation effectively putting it right up against the big names. Thanks to wide FOV (field of view) of 110 degrees the system knows exactly what you’re looking at and provides a virtual world that looks more real.
What I like the most in this headset is its support under 500 degrees myopia naked eye watching and 58-71mm IPD. If you are not aware, myopia is a special term when people want to describe a situation where close objects appear clearly, but distant objects appear blurry.
As it’s expected, this VR headset supports Virtual 5.1 Sound Stage for immersive sound experience. I guess this is the best sound system for VR headsets as they are thought to be best choice for gamers. Thanks to an exclusive “PI Play” systemyou can choose one from a number of games with astonishing graphics. There are more than 100 games and 300 pieces of video resources.
As for connectivity, the PIMAX 4K UHD Virtual Reality 3D Headset plugs into your computer’s HDMI and USB ports and tracks your head movements to provide 3D imagery on its screens. I guess you know that both of those screens are stereo.
Finally, this VR headset has very ergonomic design and weighs only 500g that means you won’t feel any inconvenience when wearing it. The headset is equipped with a 53mm large-caliber double aspherical lens, an adjustable nylon headband paste, and a comfortable medical grade sponge. So no head pressure when wearing it. The same can be said for ears too, as there is a pair of small detachable ears you can wear for better experience.
The PIMAX headset comes at 18.00×11.70×9.00 cm dimensions, which looks almost standard for such headsets. There are two colors available for the PIMAX 4K UHD Virtual Reality 3D Headset, black and white. The package includes only the 3D headset and a cleaning cloth.
As for the company, PIMAX is a new start-up established three years ago. Earlier it was specialized in making medical equipment, but now it has switched to VR headsets and even it has up to 18 patents on similar products.
Don’t think this first gen VR device is priced high, because it sports very attractive features that any similar headset has at much higher price tag. So I guess the PIMAX 4K UHD Virtual Reality 3D Headset can be a good alternative to other branded and priced models I’ve talked at the beginning of the post.
