TL;DR: This lightweight, immersive Samsung mixed reality headset is on sale for just $299 on Amazon, and it comes with two wireless controllers.
Want to win Father’s Day without making your bank account sad? We’ve got you covered.
If you head over to Amazon right now, you can get a new Samsung HMD Odyssey+ Windows Mixed Reality headset for your dad on sale for less than $300. (The original Samsung Odyssey is also on sale FWIW, though the sale price isn’t as good.)
This is the Odyssey+’s lowest price ever on Amazon, and — just for comparison’s sake — a fraction of what you’d pay for one of those popular Oculus Rift headsets.
Now, whether you’re *actually* hunting for a rad Father’s Day gift or just looking for a cool new toy to mess around with (because we’ve all been there), this is the kind of deal you almost can’t afford to miss; premium virtual and augmented reality equipment is rarely so affordable.
But enough money talk — let’s take a closer look at this bad boy.
Setup for the Odyssey+ involves little more than plugging the headset into a compatible PC running Windows 10. Once it’s up and running, you’ll simply pop it on your head to begin taking in the lush details of its 3K AMOLED display. Boasting a wide 110-degree angle and anti-Screen Door Effect technology, this display makes for an immersive user experience with crystal-clear visuals.
Sound-wise, the Odyssey+ totally delivers: Its built-in headphones come equipped with AKG 360-degree Spatial Sound for dynamic yet natural audio, and you can use the built-in microphone to either chat with your teammates or the Cortana virtual assistant. Better yet, the headphones are super comfy and lightweight, so you can wear them for hours while embarking on exciting VR/AR adventures.
The Samsung HMD Odyssey+ Windows Mixed Reality headset typically retails for $499.99, but you can snag one (plus two wireless controllers) on Amazon for just $299 — a 40% savings.
