Overall Packaging Presentation: Despite being a rather flimsy box (although it was well protected in bubble wrap for transit) it looks pretty good. With a black box design with red Chinese writing going down the middle (Which apparently says “To Explore” according to the Google Translate app) While there is no other protective padding inside of the box it still arrived safe and sound.

Xiaomi VR Headset

First Impressions: The Xiaomi VR is one of those rare headsets that feels nice to hold in the hand. With its lycra case, it is easy to grip and this has also helped to make it extremely lightweight. While a little front heavy it doesn’t feel heavy overall. In fact, the only thing that is probably making it front heavy is the zipper locking system! Overall it has exceptional design quality and everything is neatly made and stitched. Despite its low budget price, it isn’t a low-quality headset.

Features Review: Sadly this is an area that the Xiaomi VR is slightly lacking. While it doesn’t have pupil or distance adjustment it is wide enough for most people to wear their own glasses so that shouldn’t be too much of a problem. IT also has a screen touch button, easy to use zipper lock design for those who don’t like those nasty pincher systems and it even has open front panels for AR apps.

Final Verdict: While it is far too flat for most round faced people to enjoy I do think the build and design quality is nothing short of exceptional. It feels great, looks like a very high-quality headset, it’s just that it does lack a few features. This is a headset for those who like the finer things in life, but at least you won’t have to pay through the teeth for it. At the end of the day, this is Xiaomi’s first ever VR headset and they have done a great job. Let us hope they improve on it in the years to come.
