ColorCross VR Headset Review

By



In this video I demonstrate and describe the ColorCross VR headset. The headset is effectively an adapter for a smartphone that turns it into a pair of virtual reality goggles, similar to google cardboard.

See why I back this technology over the Oculus Rift here: http://simpleactually.tumblr.com/post/96975686618/cardboard-over-cables-why-strap-a-phone-to-your-face

  1. I'm bout to buy a pair for $15NZD that's bout $10.71USD so I can't go wrong. I already spent $200NZD on a Samsung Gear VR, I knew I should haven waited would have saved alot of money but oh well at least I am now 🙂

  3. I bought the ColorCross goggles for the iPhone 6S+. One of the problems I have is that the sleep/wake button is activated when I close the front of the device to secure the phone. So, the phone goes dark and the rig is useless. I have to carefully place the phone loosely, but that risks having it fall out. Another problem is that the nose rest is very uncomfortable. Finally, the focus adjustment rings do nothing.

  4. Thanks for making this, was looking at it and I want to try out basic VR before the big devices come out. Bit skeptical at the £15.99 price and wasn't sure my Z3 would fit, gonna drop some cash on it now though, thanks again!!

  5. If you wear glasses +0.5 or more, you can't use the ColorCross VR, the build in lenses are too weak to compensate more then +0.5 dioptri, so ColorCross VR misses roughly 25% of the potential market.

  6. It seems like all the good vr headsets are going with Samsung because of their partnership with Oculus. So far I'm looking back and forth to try and find one just as good, for a not so ludicrous price of $150+. How well would you say the colorcross competes? How well is the Field of View? Will I get a full immersion?

  7. Strange that these were renamed to the "FiveSung".
    I recently bought one, they're really comfortable. The original Google Cardboard would hurt my nose so badly I'd have to take it after a few minutes to prevent it from bruising. That's really the big advantage to this one, it's just really darn comfortable. The field of view isn't much better, however, and the phone's a bit farther away so it doesn't quite look better than it did in the original Google Cardboard. There's no improvement in the actual visuals, the only improvement really is comfort. It's still pretty good, definitely worth $30 if you can't afford an Oculus Rift.
