The table below is a comparison between all head mounted displays that we have, at some point, recommended for use in research applications. This is not a blanket endorsement of any of the products; each have their own pros and cons, possibly beyond the specifications listed below, that you would have to weigh when choosing a headset for your own research. Naturally, you can contact the TSG for advice.
