The HTC Vive Pro bundle is considered to be one of the best virtual reality products currently on the market. If you want the best possible VR experience, look no further. The HTC Vive Pro is a real winner and has received positive reviews being an improvement on the original HTC Vive headset.
I am aware that there are lots of different VR systems and options to consider when choosing to purchase a system that will be future proof and, which will bring you endless satisfaction, the most preferred and sought after Virtual Reality headsets currently available being the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift. This review is aimed at providing you the product features and info that I feel is the most relevant for anyone interested in getting into the VR space, wanting the best possible experience.

The HTC VIVE Pro is the most capable and fully featured virtual reality system VIVE has ever made. Designed to meet the needs of today’s most demanding VR users – from expansive office environments and crowded arcades, to the comfort of your living room. VIVE Pro surpasses the bar-setting experience to realize the most immersive virtual reality experience.
Precision tracking using Steam VR, provides 360-degree coverage of your movements to the millimeter – floor to ceiling. Use VIVE seated, standing, or in a space up to 20′ x 20′, with supporting base stations.
High impedance headphones allows for Hi-Res Soundstage immersion, driven by a powerful amplifier, an integrated 3D spatial sound delivers true-to-life immersive audio with dual microphones for active noise cancellation.
The headset provides optimized ergonomics and comfort to the user allowing even distribution of the headset weight as an optimal centre of gravity, creating comfort in the VR experience.
Considering the HTC Vive featured better optics and a slightly improved field of view (with some scientific evidence to back it up) than the Oculus Rift, it’s fair to say that the Vive Pro widens that gap considerably.
The newly detailed AMOLED displays used by the HTC Vive Pro, marks a stark improvement over the Oculus Rift’s. The resolution of the Vive Pro’s dual panels is 2,880 x 1,600, a near 80 percent increase in pixels over the Rift’s, translating into sharper visuals up close and at a distance, providing a reduced screen door effect. The newer display technology and increased pixel density of the Vive Pro easily make it the better visual experience.
Like others have said, it has better visuals, I can never go back to the old Vive that I own. The comfort is underestimated, it allows you to have longer VR sessions which is what it’s all about! The sound is “good enough” nothing bad and nothing great. Its simply good sound.-Reading Text is much better!
-Seeing gun crosshairs is WAY easier! (your aim is on point!)
-Seeing farther and clearer is HUGE! (I shot a arrow straight up in Skyrim and followed it all the way down!)The headphones cups your ears to block out outside noise, providing a more immersive experience and longer VR sessions, which is a HUGE plus! I mean its what its all about, right?!Simply put, if you want the best VR.. look no further, this is it. The best room-scale tracking coupled with this HMD will allow you to experience the absolute best VR that’s currently available!
The virtual-reality landscape is already vibrant and rich, and the games are designed in a way that reduces virtual-reality sickness. I didn’t experience any nausea while playing on the Vive, which is something I can’t say about the Oculus Rift.
Vanishing Realms lets you move around by “teleporting” you to locations that you point at with your controller. Most games and demos seem to use this mechanic. It’s clever and, while not quite as immersive as walking or running through areas, I’ll takethe HTC VIVE Pro anytime if it means not feeling sick.
