Overall Packaging Presentation: While the box itself it not that much to look at, it is one of the largest boxes I have come across. While basic in looks it gives the headset a premium quality look and feel to it even if the headsets inside of it is poor quality. But that I will find out later. Once open, the headset is nestled in a cardboard cut shape with no other signs of padding or protection. Still, it was safe enough I suppose and arrived to us in perfect order.

First Impressions: The Go4D VR is quite unlike any other mobile VR headset. Its unusual shape, strange head strap design and even it’s one piece looking main body, it is like nothing else. To be fair to it, this headset as a fresh modern design to it that many other headsets would fail to live up to, bit yet…it is also cheap! It feels cheap, nothing is especially well made and all the components feel low quality, even the lenses!

Features Review: This is sadly an area that the Go4D VR lets itself down a little. Sure it has independently adjustable pupil distance, but you need to grip the lenses and adjust them bu moving them left or right, while this gets the job done it leaves marks on the lenses from your fingerprints and the lenses also feel flimsy. It also has holes in the bottom for screen touch, but I suppose it’s unusual head strap is its biggest feature and to be fair it does keep a lot of weight off the nose which is appreciated.

Final Verdict: Maybe it is my own fault! I was expecting the Go4D VR to be something special, something unique and in looks it delivers that self-hype I gave it. But sadly in features and usability it lets itself down. Sure, it might be a nice collectors headset, but if you are thinking of getting one to use, I would forget it. This headset wouldn’t offer value for money even if it was a quarter of the price.
Having said all that, I would imagine someone who enjoys modifying headsets would find this amazing and there is room for improvement. Just a few simple tweaks and this headset could have easily been worth it’s money, but as it is, it leaves a lot to be desired. Still…it looks pretty awsome!
