    Varjo Aero HMD

    The Varjo Aero is without a doubt the best clarity I've experienced in VR. It is not completely 4k monitor quality but very close to it and more than good enough to even work in VR for prolonged periods without me experiencing motion sickness or eye fatigue.

    My only gripes are:
    1. being "cable linked" to my PC and thus restricted wrt freedom of movement
    2. Outside in tracking further restricting mobility and flexible use ie fixed location
    3. Additional cost of having to buy Valve Index controllers and base stations

    This makes the Varjo Aero the King of Simulation based VR experiences - for any Flight Simulator or Racing Simulator games where high fidelity is the name of the game...

    It is best VR headset

    I have been thinking about buying this headset for literally 3 months. Everything else is just not what I wanted.

    Insane display detail

    If I had unlimited funds, this is the PCVR headset I would buy today. I find it difficult to go back to my other headsets, whether its Valve Index, the Reverb G2, or the Quest 2, having played games like Half-Life Alyx, Lead Dangerous Pavlov in the Varjo Aero.

    Delivering the accuracy pilots demand.

    VRM Switzerland is one of the pioneering companies who have tested and used Varjo Aero in early access. They have been able to take advantage of the ultra high fidelity, true-to-life visual experience provided by the new VR headset. VRM’s state-of-the-art helicopter motion simulation platform features Varjo Aero as a key component.

    The result? A flight simulation experience that is so immersive and realistic that it has in fact already been certified by the EASA, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency, for professional pilots to log virtual reality flight hours.
