Virtual reality is here to stay: here’s another reason why. With Microsoft’s recent inclusion of reality support right into the OS, that they’re calling as “Mixed Reality”, Dell Visor is the first of its kind to be released in the market. Of course, this is not an entirely new product type. Most popular ones Oculus Rift and HTC Vive are already out there, having received numerous reviews in the past one year. The recent release Dell Visor comes with motion controllers and costs much lesser.
The headset’s original performance can be increased incredibly with the right pair of headphones. To be able to experience the real outcome of the immersive technology, choosing the right set of virtual reality gear is of great importance. These are some of the headphones that can easily plug into the 3.5mm jack of the Dell Visor.
Sennheiser HD 380 Pro Headphones
The sturdy, but lightweight Sennheiser HD 380 Pro over-the-ear headphone is a great buy as your mixed reality accessory. It comes with a comfortable fit and provides a natural noise cancellation benefit. Background noise cancellation is available for up to 32db. There is an around-the-ear cushioning and a closed back design that makes for comfortable wear even for longer sessions.
One of the best features of a Sennheiser HD 380 Pro is that it does not allow external noise to enter the ear, thus cutting down the environmental distractions significantly.Without any sound leakage and added comfort, you can use the supportive accessory for a longer time. Expect a truly professional pair of studio headphones of high sound quality, wider audio range and clarity, that makes your VR experience as close to reality as possible.
The smooth metallic exterior, Sony MDR-XB50AP is your sophisticated and great-looking earbud headphone that comes at a very cheap price. The low-price Sony headphone comes in three exclusive colors. One look at it and you will not be able to distinguish it from the higher range headphones that come with VR support.
Strong and durable cable of Sony MDR-XB50AP prevents tangling, which can only be found in the higher priced headphones and not in the low-price bracket. But, with this feature you can avoid the natural issues that come with wired headphones. It not just delivers in terms of superior performance, but delivers an audio quality for an unmatched immersive experience.
Blue Lola Sealed Over-Ear High-Fidelity Headphones
Another excellent VR compatible headphone for the Dell Visor is the less commonly seen Blue Lola Sealed headphone. There is an easy adjustable hinge that comes with on-the-ear cup and can be positioned accordingly. Although, this isn’t seen with any other headphone, you get an increased comfort with specialized padding in the cups so you can wear the gear comfortably for longer hours.
Both sound quality and noise cancellation is perfect in the headphone. Although these external sounds are not much of a problem with mixed reality, in VR immersion this is certainly a major requisite. Lola delivers beautiful sounds and allows you to perceive distances easily in VR. This makes it even more suitable for VR gaming.
Even though in-ear earbuds are lightweight, cup headphones cancel outside noise considerably. External noise isn’t a ig problem in mixed reality. So, if you prefer a comfortable and compatible headphone, you can choose from both over-the-ear or earbud variants.
