Virtual Reality headsets are so new to the market that it’s not always easy to identify the “best” products, or even the best values. Still, since these high-tech toys are growing in popularity by the day, it is possible to tell which headsets are getting the most sales and best reviews on Amazon. Here are five best sellers, all priced at under $100.
Samsung Gear VR Virtual Reality headset – $59.99
This reasonably-priced item is Amazon’s #1 Best Seller in Cell Phone VR Headsets and received 4 out of 5 stars from 2,198 customers. The downside to the Samsung Gear VR headset is that it works only with a limited number of Samsung smartphones including the Galaxy S6, S7, Note and Edge models.
VersionTech 2nd 360° Virtual Reality Headset – $30.99
If you want a VR headset that’s compatible with a wide variety of smartphones, the VersionTech 2nd is Amazon’s #1 Best Seller in Animation & 3D. The low price and 3.6 out of 5 star rating are positives but there’s one big negative if you’re planning to buy this as a gift: Amazon will not guarantee that it will arrive by Christmas.
SARLAR 3D Virtual Reality headset – $29.99
Another versatile headset that’s compatible with iOS, Android, Microsoft or PC phones sized 4” to 6.5”, this is Amazon’s #1 Best Seller in Night Vision Binoculars and Goggles. The low price, adaptability and 3.8 star rating make this headset a good choice but unfortunately, it’s also not guaranteed for Christmas delivery.
Magicoo 3D VR Box – $59.99
Amazon’s #1 Best Seller in 3D Games, the Magicoo headset gets a solid 4.1 stars from users and is compatible with most smartphones. It will be in stock on December 12 and should be available for delivery before Christmas.
View Master Virtual Reality Starter Pack – $13.99
The #1 Best Seller in Viewfinder Toys, this budget-priced headset earned 3.9 stars from 777 reviewers. The View Master VR headset is designed for kids 7 to 15 and works with a wide variety of recent smartphones. Best of all, it’s in stock and ready to ship as soon as you order.
