Samsung's Odyssey headset is seen by many as the leader of the pack among the current lineup of Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Outside of aesthetics, each current Windows Mixed Reality headset offers very similar specs. Samsung's offering stands out by offering more vibrant OLED 1400x1600 displays and a wider, 110-degree field-of-view. The Odyssey also includes integrated AKG headphones.
Microsoft added support for Windows Mixed Reality in the Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, launching alongside a wide array of headsets from partners like Acer, HP, Lenovo and Dell, alongside Samsung. If you're on the fence, check out our hands-on with the Samsung HMD Odyssey for a closer look at the headset. Otherwise, you can pick one up for yourself from Samsung or Microsoft (just don't expect to see the headset in Europe).
