Overall Packaging Presentation: I expected nothing less than presentation perfection from a headset from I AM Cardboard and that is exactly what it is. From the shop friendly box that has all the info you need to make a purchase decision to the hard rubber carry case inside of that protecting the headset inside of the box and while travelling. I would go so far as to say that this is the best presentation of a headset we have had from I AM Cardboard so they really have stepped up their game.

Features Review: While it doesn’t have pupil adjustment it does have focus adjustment, a wide 100° FOV, good quality 3 point head strap, multicoated lenses, interchangeable foam which also works with the DK2 VR Cover and it even has a quick phone release and multicoated lenses. Phew! That is quite a lot of features, but not quite necessary the ones you might want.

Final Verdict: This is the perfect headset for people getting serious about VR. The set up from this to an Oculus Rift DK2 is nothing and it could easily be used to experience Oculus games on a mobile VR headset (With the use of Rift Cat). But this is not for those with small heads and weak necks. This headset is one of the heaviest you can get and while the experience it delivers is impressive it might not be so good if your neck starts to get tired after a few minutes. This is as close to owning a full VR headset as you can get with a mobile VR headset and while they no longer sell them, they are definitely worth looking up.
