Made by Facebook, the Oculus Go is one of the most affordable standalone VR headsets you can get. It works without a smartphone and offers high-end features like a QHD LCD display, hand-motion detecting lightweight controller and its own user interface that’s both good to look at and easy to use. The Oculus Go offers a vast collection of games, apps and videos for you to enjoy. You can even meet friends virtually via the VR headset. The headset is made of breathable fabrics that let you wear it for long periods of time without hurting your face while the display doesn’t have the usual flickering that hurts the eyes.

You can play just about any VR games available on Steam or Windows Store for long hours without having to set up room sensors and the likes.

What’s more, you can even use it while wearing glasses and a 3.5mm AUX input ensures you don’t miss a beat during your experience.
