Cannot confirm. My new Reverb has a perfectly crisp image (coming from the O+ it's an impressive step up).

Not in my experience (and I had a 5k+ before the Reverb)

Hi,and thx
So do you suggest me to switch on Reverb and get rid of Pimax 5K+? I'm interested in your opinion, I would like to know without taking the money issue, which Vr is the best, amongst all in the market

It comes down to preferences. I thought the Pimax FOV would be a game changer for racing & flight sims. For me it wasn't. I didn't like the amount of visible binocular overlap where you can see the border of the lenses as they overlap and the amount of SDE.

The Reverb is a much clearer image but of course is more like viewing a circle than the big ellipse of the Pimax, and the Reverb has much less SDE.

Going back to a relatively small FOV may be an issue, it wasn't for me.

In my view the Reverb is the "best" headset of all the ones I have tried - CV1, Odyssey+, Pimax 5K+ & Index. Though my priority is clarity of image, whilst other headsets have better attributes, this determines my choice.

You're right, I have a Pimax5k+ as well but want to have the one which suits me and matches with my expectations and the first priority for is the cleanness and clarity of the image read and see well the gauges
Thanks

Sorry but what is the relevance of this post? Are you asking if it appears you are looking through mesh or are you saying a Pimax 5k plus is better without seeing the Reverb?


They are both a similar price so are you saying pimax is better?
