What you need to know
- The HP Reverb Windows Mixed Reality headset is now back in stock and available to order.
- Only available as a "Professional Edition," the headset has been available in limited quantities thus far.
- You can order the HP Reverb for $650 now.
HP's Reverb headset for Windows Mixed Reality is one of the best out there, but it's been pretty hard to get ahold of so far. If you've been waiting on pins and needles, however, it's now back in stock and available at HP's store for $650.
That price is on the high side for a Windows Mixed Reality headset, but it's largely because there's no true "consumer" edition available yet. Rather, the HP Reverb is built as a "Professional Edition" headset, and it has all of the bells and whistles you'd expect.
In our review, we gave the HP Reverb high praise for having the highest resolution of any Windows Mixed Reality headset, its comfort, and premium build quality. It also comes with built-in headphones, a mic, and Bluetooth on board. Its only downsides are that it's been hard to find so far, is expensive, and the headset doesn't flip up.
As for specs, you're looking at a combined display resolution of 2160 x 2160 per eye with a 90Hz refresh rate. Most other Windows Mixed Reality headsets run at 1440 x 1440 per eye, with some opting for a 60Hz refresh rate. In other words, everything looks crisper and and more fluid on the HP Reverb than other headsets you'll find out there.
It's also one of the more comfortable headsets out there.
All of that combines to make the HP Reverb a relatively pricy headset, though. However, if you've got the money, you can pick one up from HP's online store for $650.
Premium virtual reality
Super comfortable, super HD
HP's Reverb headset is designed for professional environments but also for prosumers and addicts of WMR. The high resolution and refresh rates deliver an exciting VR experience for only slightly more money than the first-generation headsets. Comfort is also superior, as is the visual acuity due to HP's new lens system. Too bad the Reverb is so hard to find right now.
