HIGH FIDELITY DETACHABLE ON-EAR HEADPHONES FOR PLAYSTATION VR.
Take your virtual reality gaming to the next level with an innovative headset that easily attaches to your PlayStation® VR. A unique and revolutionary design makes for a seamlessly integrated experience.
• Patent pending design.
• Eliminates ear fatigue that occurs with regular headphones or earbuds.
• Lightweight, rests gently on the ear without sacrificing sound.
• Creates an immersive experience that puts you directly in the game.
• Dust-proof and tangle-resistant.
• Connects directly to the headset to consolidate hardware, making it easier to wear and store.
• Complements the design and color scheme of the PlayStation® VR.
• Easy to install and adjust — clips effortlessly onto the headset band and can flip on and off ear with ease.
As an avid VR user (although on PC primarily), sound design can REALLY make for break the experience. You could have all the gorgeous visuals you want, but if the sound you are hearing does not match that fidelity, it takes you out of the experience completely.
Bionik has now come out with the Mantis VR Headphones which connect to the Playstation VR and are ready to up the quality on your setup.
They clip directly onto the body of the headset and connect to the unit itself, this leaves you with a comfortable and non-tangled experience that many VR users suffer from when having to use their own long lead headphones.
The headphones themselves sit on your ears gently and are flexible to fit all head sizes and ear shapes, similar to the Oculus setup.
Usually this would come with a sacrifice in audio quality, and while you MAY be able to tell the difference with over-ear headphones, honestly the Mantis VR has decent sound fidelity and you would be hard pressed to find something in this price range that would match.
If you are looking to these as music headphones, then you are in the wrong market, these have a specific function and design, gaming and VR.
They enable crisp sound effects and vocals, but would not be something you want to use for listening to music 24/7.
Overall, I could recommend this to those casual VR users as a nice upgrade to their VR setup. If you are in the market for updating your Playstation VR experience, the Mantis VR should definitely be on your radar!
