HP Reverb VR headset revealed at HP Reinvent

HP Releases High-Resolution Reverb VR Headset

HP Reverb comes with pre-paired motion controllers right out of the box (no need to pair) and support for Windows Mixed Reality and Steam VR. By integrating a Bluetooth radio directly into Reverb's headset, HP can better guarantee a level of connection quality. This is the latest headset from HP, and it's geared toward both VR and AR in business applications, making its prime competition the HoloLens 2 from Microsoft and Google's second-generation Google Glass.

HP's VR headsets haven't reached the same popularity as the Oculus Rift or HTC Vive, but they haven't exactly targetted the high-end.

That is a big leap over the 1440x1440 resolution of HP's first-generation mixed reality headset, with the Reverb offering more than twice as many pixels overall.

They both come with two motion controllers, a 3.5m headset cable, and one DisplayPort to mini-DisplayPort adapter. The consumer model is $599, but there will also be a commercial version for $649 that comes with an optional cable for backpack PCs, a leather face cushion, and an extended warranty. The field of view has also been increased up to 114 degrees, while weight has been dropped to just shy of 500g. The build also features a replaceable fabric face mask and separate cable package (for multiple users), as well as integrated cameras for inside-out tracking. 'The time for commercial VR is now and adding HP Reverb to our broader virtual reality portfolio is an important step in addressing this growing market.

Going from demoing the Samsung Odyssey+ to the HP Reverb was like night and day.

It isn't just the sharper screen that allows this headset to render so much more detail; HP also re-engineered its optics to provide a clearer and wider vision of the virtual world. Let us know what you're thinking in the comments below.

The PC-based virtual reality landscape has been barren for almost a year now, with the HTC Vive Pro and Samsung Odyssey+ being the only noticeable additions.

While our early impressions of the HP Reverb are very positive, we're itching to give this headset a full, long-term test so we can render our final verdict.
