Overall Packaging Presentation: The box is pretty much what I expected for a headset in the higher price bracket. It’s shop friendly, stylish and has all the information you need to decide whether or not to buy it. Opening the box you can see that the box is well packed and very strong, keeping the headset safe and sound inside. I expected a beautifully presented headset and that is what I got.

First Impressions: This is one headset that was exactly as I expected it would be. It’s stylish, feels very robust and everything on it looks like it is made from good materials. It is also well weighted and the middle of the headset is the exact tipping point. The only thing I didn’t like when I first held it in my hands was that I noticed it had an extreme lack of features. But we will get to that in a moment.

Features Review: Sadly this an area that this headset falls on its face. It’s got no adjustable features whatsoever and no magnet or screen touch button. But it does have some very serious lenses and a high-quality build.

Final Verdict: When you have a mobile VR headset attached with the ‘Carl Zeiss’ brand name you should expect the lenses to be nothing short of perfection and they pretty much are with just about 100° FOV which is crystal clear. But this headsets lack of features means I just can’t say it offers value for money. Provided you don’t need the adjustable features, provided you have a separate joypad and provided you have a strong head to handle the weight of it, then maybe, just maybe if you can afford it and want the best possible viewing experience, this is the headset you might be looking for. But for those of use who need the features and expect good value for money, we should look elsewhere.
