Overall Packaging Presentation: It arrived in the office in a very boring looking brown box. While it was undamaged thanks to its strong design we expected it to be better…but then it surprised us all. You see, inside of that box was the real case. With a nice material covered case with a strong, plastic design this is not just a display box, it is also an all-purpose carry case! Covering this is a cardboard sleeve with all the information you need. Unzipping this carry case, you see the headset cased in thick, protective foam. This is a headset that is going to arrive safe and sound, every time. At the very least, for the price, it is well presented and would make a fantastic gift idea for anyone getting into VR.

First Impressions: It might have a premium price, but not a lot about this headset says it’s premium. With a cheap looking plastic design and rather complex looking phone lock system, at first you might well be feeling a little disappointed. While it does feel and look a little cheap at first, it does have good quality overall in both build and design. It also feels lightweight and well balanced. This is a headset designed from the experience upwards, not the design downwards.

Features Review: Sadly the Freefly VR is lacking pupil and focus adjustable features. While it doesn’t have a screen touch button, the version we brought did at least come with a Bluetooth remote to compensate for that. With good quality face padding, adjustable 3-point head strap, really good quality lenses and deep immersion, as we thought at the start, this is a headset designed from the experience up.

Final Verdict: While it doesn’t have the design and build quality to justify it’s high price it makes up for it in terms of experience. With large lenses for a good FOV, comfortable face padding and a good weight distribution it is designed to look after you and look after your phone. If you want to try a Google Cardboard headset but worry about your smartphone getting damaged or the thought of having cardboard on your face puts you off, this is the perfect headset. It’s nice and dark while wearing it, plus it doesn’t feel too heavy thanks to the weight being dispersed over the entire headset. With this headset on, you can easily slip into a deep and immersive VR experience.

It has clearly been made by people who love the mobile VR experience and it is not designed to do anything else. Yes, it has a premium price, but for that money you get a premium experience with a cool carry case so you can carry it safely around the place to show all your friends and family what mobile VR is all about.
