The LG 360 VR is the newest kid on the block and costs Rs 18,900. Besides being the latest, it is also the lightest one out there by omitting the need to mount a phone. It has inbuilt displays that make it a more convenient and smart thing to wear on your face.
The Gear VR headset works with high-end Samsung smartphones and cost Rs 8,200. You will have to mount the phone inside, but navigation keys will let you save the effort of taking the smartphone out every time you need to change the view. Gear VR is built in collaboration with Oculus and Facebook making it the best bet for VR consumption.
The Google Cardboard app works on most phones and to use it, all you have to do is get your hands on a Cardboard VR headset for roughly Rs 300. Slip your phone into the headset and start viewing HD content in what is still the scheapest way to try it out.
This is the most profitable way to get on the VR bandwagon. The OnePlus Loop VR headset is built in collaboration with Ant VR, who also builds the ones sold with Lenovo K4 Note. Before the launch of the headset, you can get your hands on the device for Re 1 on Amazon.
Another candidate is the VR headset bundled with Karbonn Quattro L52. It manages to play VR content with a headset and compatible smartphone for Rs 7,999 only.
Besides these media consumption headsets, India will also get its share of gaming VR headsets from the like of PlayStation, Oculus and HTC. But to get a taste of VR, these offerings are the ones you should check out.
