Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits like a knife in the headI really wanted to like this but it's barely usable as shipped. The screen is excellent and it does look like it has a bit less of the fresnel effect than the original but the fit is just horrid. Wearing it so the headphones line up properly puts a lot of pressure right above the bridge of your nose (where Samsung has inexplicably put a piece of hard plastic IN the foam pad) is not much more comfortable than a torture device, and the lenses are held much closer to your eyes so glasses are probably a much tougher fit than the original Odyssey.I've used a Rift, Vive and the original Odyssey and this is a step down from all of them in terms of comfort. I don't know what kind of heads they're designing for over there but this is probably the most common complaint about the headset there is, and they've only made it worse from the original version (which, while it wasn't great was wearable for some time without getting an immediate headache.)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Spectacular HMD!As an avid gamer (over 200+ titles in library), an electronics field technician, and a fan of all VR products, this experience is the best overall in my opinion. With the mixed VR, I am not tethered to satellites and am capable of taking my experience wherever I go. I am currently in O'hare Airport and getting tons of questions about this headset.The video quality is top notch! No screen door effect. With the higher resolutions, I am capable of reading items much easier and if you pull in close enough the clarity for letters is far superior to most products. The AKG ear phones are a great addition however without being able to remove them or swing them out of the way, I cannot use a more immersive set of full cup earphones. The controllers are a nice combination of Vive / Oculous type where you have both snap to center thumb sticks as well as the touch sliders.If you plan on getting a first HMD, I would highly recommend going with this product as it allows for excellent quality, portability, and a superb immersion experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Still not perfect, but a minor upgrade from 1stThe headset is not ergonomically balanced and does cause some discomfort on the bridge of my nose when I wear it. In addition, light will bleed into the nose guard, so this will be set back from the 1st gen. The cable length is still the same as the original & it will need to be extended if you want to expand your virtual floor zone for game play. The display itself is remarkable and the I cannot identify the SDR unless my head is still and I'm truly looking for it. Typically it can be discovered on white or light color background objects. You'll notice blurred blending between pixels on the outer edges due to Samsung's anti SDE. Controllers have changed in regards to be MORE DURABLE, which on previous set that was a flaw. Overall, if you're in the market for a VR headset, and you have a budget of $500.00, then this would be your clear winner. You'll need to creative to solve some of the minor flaws that you identify but with enough creativity, you'll be able to improvise.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is the best headset of virtual reality!I use this headset one and a half months, and it is pleasant to me more than Oculus Rift CV1. The better picture, pixels are not visible. But unfortunately this helmet was for me less convenient physically (I have a big head, size 60). It is a little heavier than Oculus Rift, and a front part of a helmet gradually unpleasantly presses on a forehead. It is difficult to suffer more than 1 hour of a game, but it it is possible to arrange on another, so to transfer pressure not to a forehead and to the middle of the person (around a nose). Before I played one year Oculus Ruft CV1 the game Elite Dangerous. Now I play Samsung Odyssey the game Skyrim VR, very much it is pleasant to Me. The image very good and smoothness in the movement. Controllers very convenient for games. For controllers I recommend to buy the AA accumulators of 2700 mah (4 pieces), ordinary batteries quickly come to an end:) [This review was collected as part of a promotion.]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great display but poor tracking and comfortThe Samsung Odyssey + is a fantastic headset due to the screen quality and no screen door effect. Unfortunately, the head tracking is still not great nor is it very comfortable. Lots of light comes through the areas in front of your nose and above your forehead. The USB and display cord coming from the headset is too short and makes room scale rather challenging. Comparing this to the HTC Vive, the software is also lacking. I have experienced some issues with the headset automatically turning on and launching the Windows Mixed Reality home screen even when not in use. For $299.99.... You simply can't beat this headset though. Great job Samsung. Just make it more comfortable and work on the tracking a bit more. :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect lens, bad comfortThe "view" is superb, the tracking and controller are working just as expected. I can use my glasse, when waring the VR headsett. But sadly the comfort is not so good, it hurts my forehead very much after a couple of hours use. But i think that is managable.if I buy som aftermarket padding.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A truly premium VR headset, and the best WMR unitAfter a month of usage, the Odessey+ has revolutionized sim racing for me. It performs flawlessly. The optics and displays are amazing--in fact, they are some of the best available!Comfort and fitment could be improved. The fitment issues can create problems with the earphone placement as well. In fact, I hope the next generation will allow the earphones to be removed. While the sound is pretty good, I would like to be able to use external speakers or my own higher fidelity headphones.Overall, I am extremely satisfied with the Odessey+ and think it offers the best visuals and the best value of any VR headset.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bad quality controlI got a left controller whose home button doesn't work. After replacing the whole set, the new right controller's vibration is far more weaker than the left one. I can hear the vibration from left controller but not the other when I use tilt brush. (as well as beat saber)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from VR Game ChangerThis is one of the best headsets I have ever used. It is light weight and the ant-SDE is amazing this is something newer headsets will have to implement on their next gens. I have tested all headsets besides the Pimax and the higher end headsets like StarVR.Visuals: With the anti-SDE the grid pattern is 90% gone. If you look very close you can still see it but it takes some eye strain to see it. The resolution is a slight upgrade over the first gen headsets. The images are clearer for text and range but not by much. Overall the visuals are the best I have seen in any headset I have tried.Performance: The headset tracks just like any other headset I can not tell the difference between the O+, Vive, or Rift. Since the bluetooth is now intergrated into the headset the controller tracking has greatly improved over the OG and seems to track as far as I can reach and will even track behind my back for a few seconds. I have tested different batteries and it seems you need to use 1.5V Ultra AA batteries like Duracell Quantum or 1.5V or higher rechargeable, once I started using cheap AA batteries the tracking starting becoming erratic. Overall the tracking has not been a problem I had no tracking loss as long as I used the higher end batteries.Design: The headset is lighter than the first one and more comfortable with the nose area being bigger also. The padding is like a cloth now which I did not like as much as the fake leather of the OG, plus it does not seem the forehead and back padding detaches a very big design flaw. The face pad is too wide and lets light in from the sides it needed to angle in more on the sides. The nose piece is a lot better than the first but again it lets a lot of light in through the nose piece a little worse than the Rift you stop noticing most of the light bleed once in game though. The headset has to be put on like a crown so holding the unit up to your face where the sweet spot is and where ever the back band is that is where it needs to be tighten up at. Now for the worst part of the whole headset the cable length. It is so short you can not move anywhere it says you need a certain amount of space to play room scale but you have to pull hard on the cable to get it set. I have tried 10 foot extensions which I think are too long the sound will mess up after a few minutes and you will hear a loud static sound. I don't think you will be able to go over 6 foot extensions. I have heard of people using the Vive link box, since it is powered, on the OG to get it working.Value: I bought the unit for the Black Friday price of $299 but it is well worth the $499 and if Samsung has sales like they had on their OG over the past year it will be $399 multiple times over the next year probably every couple of months.Conclusion: If you want to get into VR you are not going to find a better deal. To have the same resolution as a Vive Pro with controllers which is $1,399 and no need for lighthouses or complicated setups it is almost plug and play except for the room scale setup. You can not beat this headset. I took one star off for the design if it had longer cables, padding fixed, and light bleed eliminated it would be a 5 star unit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mixed feelings about upgradeFirst off: this headset is a steal if you can grab it on sale. A WMR headset is much easier in setup than Vive or Oculus, no messing with external sensors. Second, the resolution is great. To be frank, I did not really notice much difference between the old version and the new version with the anti-screen door SDE+ feature. It looks the same to me. Pros:- The padding is much more comfortable than the previous version. The old version had material that did not breathe and got sweaty very quickly. The new padding does not have that problem, and consequently I am not seeing the lenses fog up.- Has more room for wider nosesCons:- It may have more room for wider noses, but if you have 'strong' nose this version becomes VERY uncomfortable very quickly. After just a few minutes of use I have a painful dent across the bridge of my nose. I alleviated that problem a bit by sticking some foam onto the nose guard.- In trying to accommodate larger faces Samsung made the headset quite a bit wider, and for me that results in some light bleed from the sides. - The larger nose guard also lets more light bleed in from the bottom. But like one other reviewer noted, you quickly forget the light bleed once in-game. In my case I also used some black tape along the bottom of the nose guard to reduce light bleed.Conclusion:If I'd have to shell out $499 to upgrade to the Odyssey+, I would say "pass". But if you can get it on sale, it is probably worth it. I snapped it up for $299, so I am keeping it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing productI have own Oculus dk2, HTC Vive & Samsung Gear VRI play Elite Dangerous and other flight sims, and have to say the Samsung Odyssey+ is the best hands down of course its got better resolution than the others but with the screen-door effect practically gone reading text is great.I do hope Samsung come up with a ++ (say 60%+ resolution increase) as that would be another giant leap forward as I feel this piece of kit is.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfort level is below zero.Had it for a week now. I've only tried the vive which fits way better than this. Resolution and Anti SDE are good. Just not sure how the heads of testers are. Also there's light bleed from the nose area.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from To infinity and beyond.Connection and configuration only takes a few minutes. The unit is light, comfortable and movement with it on is easy to adjust to. The lens adjustment is straightforward, and thanks to WidmoVR you can have a pair of adapters made to your prescription lens specifications. The stereo headphones deliver a surprising range and do not press against your ears. If there is one drawback it is the length of the tether.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply WONDERFULFantastic device, screen-door effect practically eliminated. Beautiful OLED screen with deep blacks, great colors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Display so farOrdered the o, and now o+ and Im really impressed. Now we have it all, but we just have to unify the technique. The lenses and IPD adjustment of StarVR, the case a mix of Oculus / Sony, please with modular cushions. The Knuckles controllers from Valve, as well as the tracking. Software SteamVR, but with neat virtual desktop. Or WMR with native VR 3D desktop for better and faster working in VR. And of course the ingenious anti-SDE displays from Samsung, but again a little more resolution. Eyetracking and modular Leap Motion, wireless module from TPCast. Samsung, I think you can do it. You can have a great future in the VR market (Europe too!). Let it cost you something! Best time is now!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Horrible ProductI received this product one day ago, and upon trying to use it, it required a firmware update. The firmware failed and the headset is now bricked. unusable, through no fault of my own. After 1-2 hours on support with Samsung getting transfered multiple times they said I have to send it in for repair which would take 10 days. I can only assume the headset is like the support, JUNK.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are having so much fun!This headset has been a blast. The games play without giving my eyes fatigue, though I still get motion sick in the Windows MR home area. The controllers desperately need locks on the wrist straps to make them more secure and the foam padding is stiff enough to be uncomfortable if the headset isn't sitting just right on my face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing home intertainmentI'm using it more and more as a home intertainment replacement rather than playing games. I use it to watch youtube and movies, and actually some coding in windows mix reality. Awesome product. It got a lot better to previous head sets. I can only imagine what more to come. I'd say the most import feature of it is resolution improvement and beautful colors. I have OLED TV and I often use this instead to watch my movies. Only one thing that I hope will get improved in future is field of view and obviously higher resolution, would make experience even more immerse.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works OK, until it doesn'tHas worked OK for about a year and all of the sudden the controllers are no longer recognized. No matter what troubleshooting performed, no success getting them recognized. They show up in the systemn as paired. Uninstalled drivers, hardware, software and reinstalled. Now I have a headset and no controllers. BUYER BEWARE

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great screen! looks fantastic!Too bad it did not fit my face and the light bleed was terrible. required velcro straps to improve the design to make it work. Also the cables are short and good luck finding extensions that work with it. Expect to spend another 50-75$ making it usable for real games

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Headset!Upgraded from Rift. No SDE, nice visuals and good hardware. The issue is in the software. WMR requires tinkering. I had blackouts, no display in HMD after using for 15-20 mins. Had to go to Windows Mixed Reality troubleshooting guide to fix the issues. Now its rock solid. Highly recommended but be prepared to troubleshoot software issues initially.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's just about exactly as good as I expectedThe very first thing I did with this headset, before even plugging it in, was test the fit for comfort and light bleed. On my head, the unit is comfortable, but I had a bit of light bleeding in from the sides and nose. Since the padding is just attached by velcro, I took it off and adjusted the pad so that the bottom edges just met the nose flaps. Doing this one simple thing eliminated all light leak from the bottom and sides. I put on the headset (still not plugged in,) and I was in complete darkness. It was perfect.Then I proceeded to plug it in. I had an Acer unit before, so I just switched out the connectors and put my other headset in my closet for safe keeping. I turned on the controllers and my system did a small configuration update and then I was ready to go. I didn't have to change any settings, I didn't have to go through room setup or anything. All of my settings transferred to the new headset and I was in-game with the click of a button.As far as picture goes, the anti-SDE filter greatly reduces SDE, but does not entirely eliminate it. Another thing I noticed is that the pentile OLED matrix is more visible when viewing horizontal lines than the RGB stripe matrix used in the Acer's LCD screens. Basically, when looking at horizontal lines, you will see a slight bit of pixelation. With that said, the colors and blacks are much deeper and more vivid, to the point that it negates any slight pixelation you may see. Text and fine lines are a bit more blurry due to the anti-SDE filter, but once you get used to it, it's not much of an issue.I know it sounds like I'm bashing the headset, but I truly do believe the upgrade is worth the money. I paid 4/5 of retail with a generous financing offer, and I am very happy with my purchase. This is truly the top of the line for current VR tech, and I highly recommend it to enthusiasts and casual users alike.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Screen is amazing.. Comfort.. Not so muchI recieved my odyssey+ a week ago and I havent had much time with it, but I can tell you 2 things:1- the screen is amazing. Best headset ive tried by far. It literally makes the SDE almost invisible. Its bright, colorful, and sharp.2- this is not a comfortable headset for me. The foam is hard and doesnt fit well, the headphoes dont move out of the way so I can fit my big head in, and perhaps the worst is the nose fitting. Its just a cheap flap of rubber that will not fit anyone well and lets a ton of light through. I expect the aftermarket to come up with good solutions for both things.Notes: for first time wmr users like me... Have a Bluetooth reciever on your comp. Also make sure you have a free USB 3.0 port, and a free HDMI port or HDMI adapter.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Finally NO SDEFor me I find the screen door effect the major ailment for VR, I have the Vive, the Gear Vr and was waiting on the Pima 8K, but after all the reviews and having to upgrade a GPU again, its not worth the money for me anyways. Then the Odyssey plus came out and I bought it... I Loved the improvement visually,THERE IS NO SDE, I think it has the BEST visuals on a VR HMD to date, especially for the price. It is still not the best fitting and needs some improvements there but you will not be disappointed visually.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Incredible VR at a valueFriend lent me his Odyssey+ while he was on vacation. I was so impressed that I just picked one up for myself. I was really hesitant with Windows MR as a whole, and while their storefront is kind of lacking thus far, the extensibility of SteamVR and Revive have made it more than worth it. I don't have a ton of room in my computer room, so I find the inside-out tracking an absolute god send. The fidelity is amazing, and I am sold on this device, platform, and VR as a whole. Kudos to MS, and especially to Samsung... This is a great device.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A nice upgrade to the originalI have owned the original Odyssey since it came out last year. I haven't played a non-VR game since I received it. My only issue was the SDE. This new unit has eliminated the SDE completely. Also the redesigned Halo allows the earphones to come down further and completely cover my ears; which makes the sound richer with more base and clearer tones. If you have a Rift or a Vive, or have never tried VR then this is the one to buy.
