The HTC Vive Cosmos Elite offers a resolution of 1440 x 1700 pixels per eye. The new liquid crystal display greatly reduces the screen-door effect, making the Vive Cosmos a very good headset for playing high-quality content. Due to its high image resolution, stylish design and ease of use, the Vive Cosmos is the ideal candidate for professional VR users and developers.
Vive Cosmos Elite, like the HTC Vive and Vive Pro, uses external tracking base stations. These external sensors ensure that the headset can be tracked accurately to the millimeter in a large space. The Vive Cosmos Elite can also be made wireless using the Vive Wireless Adapter, making the headset particularly suitable for free-roaming applications.

This headset is fantastic, let me start with that. Now that that's out of the way, let's start by saying that this headset is definitely overpriced (no SCANS error, it's purely HTC's suggested retail price). The headset itself is actually about the right price (£600~ on its own?) but unfortunately the cost of the baystations and Controllers hasn't really come down over the years. Pros: Flip up HMD (great if you play Elite: Dangerous!) Comfortable face padding High quality construction Great resolution Great sound Free viveport 6 month subscription Great selection of games on viveport Very long cable Cons: High price Fresnel lenses (boo! but you can do the gear vr mod if you don't mind voiding your warranty) Halo style headband can get a bit uncomfortable during long play sessions Tiny sweet spot (look up sweet spots in VR headsets for more info) Viveport sucks ( very janky) Lower FOV than other HMDs available Conclusion: Although the valve index has better audio, field of view, resolution etc. offers, the HTC Vive Cosmos Elite may prove to be a better long-term investment, the modular design of the headset means we can see many improvements in the future, meaning you can use your smartphone upgrade. HMD without the need to replace the whole thing. The quality is fantastic as you'd expect for the price and is definitely a good choice if you're looking to get into VR gaming.By lakuraposted on 02/06/2021
