How much is a VR headset?

Now that virtual reality is finally inching towards mainstream use, you may be wondering just how much a VR headset actually costs. These devices used to be particularly expensive affairs, but with tech growing cheaper and a rising demand for affordable kit, we’re actually seeing the best VR headsets sitting at some reasonable prices. 

Interestingly, however, it’s the cheaper VR headsets that haven’t quite made it through to today’s renewed interest. The Oculus Go and Google Daydream both brought VR to the masses with sub-$100 price tags, but the experience was unrefined, suffering from the teething problems associated with every new technological venture. These days, we’ve learned that for palatable virtual reality (or at least a virtual reality experience you’ll want to spend any significant length of time in), headset prices start at around $300 / £300.
