The Design

The PiMax 4K looks like most VR headsets in the market, though it is more compact. The HMD (Head-mounted Device) weighs about 220 g, which is not a lot of weight on your head. However, adding the earphones to your setup will add to the weight (about 500 g in total).

The internal foam is built on medical grade sponge, which makes it comfortable to wear. The PiMax 4K VR headset is designed in such a way that you can attach or detach, the headphones when needed. You can even plug-in your own headphones or earbud using the 3.5mm audio jack provided on the VR headset.

Inside the PiMax 4K VR Headset showing lenses

The PiMax 4K has two 53mm spherical lenses (one for each eye). To protect your eye, the virtual reality headset comes with a filter that removes some eye-damaging blue light. You also get an automatic mist removal system and an automatic light adjustment system.

The PiMax 4K offers an IPD (Interpupillary Distance) ranging between 58mm to 71mm, which creates allowance for users wearing glasses. If your myopia is 500° or less, you do not need to wear glasses, according to the manufacturer as the headset feature auto adaptation to myopia of that range.

The Virtual Reality Experience

PiMax 4K VR headset like the name suggests offers 4K UHD resolution. You get 3840 x 2160 pixels (1920 x 2160 pixels per eye), which floors the likes of the Sony PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, and HTC Vive VR that feature 2160 x 1200 pixels.

With 806 ppi pixel density, the PiMax 4K should deliver a crispier viewing experience. The virtual reality headset offers 110° FOV (Field of Vision). It comes with 60Hz refresh which is not so much desirable for a VR headset. However, there is an option to take the refresh rate to as high as 90Hz for a better experience.

The PiMax 4K offers dual gyroscopes that operate at 1000Hz. The dual gyroscope help the virtual reality headset achieve an MTP (Motion to Photon) of 18ms, which is within the 20ms limit set for prevention of vertigo or dizziness on someone wearing a VR headset. The provided headphones offer 3D immersive sound with Virtual 5.1 sound.
