Alles in allem eine wirklich gute Vr-Brille, nicht die nummer Eins, aber bei weitem nicht die Schlechteste. Oberes Mittelfeld denke ich. Der Tragekomfort ist überragend durch das schöne Kopfteil. ansonsten ist alles etwas über Mittelmäßig.

Pros

  • Bild gut
  • Tracking gut
  • Bequem

Cons

  • Sound so Lala
  • Zieht nach vorne , geht auf den Nacken
  • Teuer
