The ELEGIANT 3D VR glasses are simple in design, yet effective in providing a good VR (virtual reality) experience. They are comfortable to wear as they are lightweight and they offer good adjustability.
Design & Functionality:
The VR glasses are quite lightweight as they weigh 1.6 ounces. They are not extremely large nor very bulky. The dimensions are the following: 20 x 14 x 10 cm. The design of the VR glasses comprises of two major parts which are the housing of the lens and smartphone, and the adjustable headband straps. The VR glasses are made of plastic material with the adjustable headband straps being made of elastic and leather material. Also, the eye area consists of soft, foam cushioning leather material. The color design of the VR glasses is of a black matte finish with some small portions being grey. There are a total of three adjustable headband straps. One is placed on the top of your head while the other two are placed on the left and right side of your head. There are two high-definition optical resin lenses that form the optical glasses. Each optical resin lens has their own focal distance adjusting knob.
The top of the VR glasses consists of a pupil distance adjusting knob and a magnet switch that basically helps close and keep the cover from opening up during usage. The pupil distance adjusting knob can adjust the pupillary distance, between 55mm – 75mm. You must have an eye-sight that is below 600 degrees in order to be able to utilize these VR glasses proficiently. On the left and right side of the VR glasses there is an object distance adjusting knob. These two knobs are actually connected to one another inside the VR glasses housing. So, you need to adjust both of them simultaneously in order to ensure a smooth and effective adjustment. On the front of the VR glasses is the cover which has a removable front cover. The cover and its removable front cover is held shut and in place by magnets. There are two vents, one on each side of the cover, that help keep the inside of the VR glasses cool as heat will be dissipated from your smartphone within the VR glasses housing, thus causing heat to build up from within. So, the heat will be dispelled to the outside of the VR glasses housing through these two vents. Another great thing about these two vents is that they allow you to connect and charge your smartphone as well as plug in some earphones when the smartphone is housed within the VR glasses. On the inside of the VR glasses, there is a spring-loaded bracket system that holds your smartphone in place so that it does not fall nor slip off during the use of the VR glasses. The spring-loaded bracket system supports smartphones that have a screen size in between 3.5 – 6.0 inches and that do not exceed the maximum length x width measurement of 4.62 x 2.46 inches. Last, the VR glasses supports over 300 VR games/apps that are on the Apple App store and Google Play store.
Viewing 3D games/apps as well as side-by-side movies was clear and visible. Adjusting the pupil and focal distance was easy as it does not require much effort to adjust them accordingly to your personal or specific needs. Adjusting the headband straps was just as easy. They are not overly adhesive, but are adhesive enough to where they can be detached effortlessly and still manage to strongly and firmly hold in place. The elastic material of the headband straps conforms to your head shape and size nicely as they allow for a snug fit without the feeling of unwanted pressure being applied to your head. The removable front cover can be removed without difficulty and is held in place securely. The magnet switch that prevents the cover from opening up carelessly during the use of the VR glasses is good overall. When the VR glasses was in use, the magnet switch held the cover shut quite proficiently, however, there were times when the magnet switch failed to keep the cover shut as it opened up when the VR glasses was being fitted upon my head or when it was being taken off. So, a much stronger magnet switch would most likely alleviate this situation and possibly prevent this issue from happening again. Also, this issue can become more apparent for those who have heavier smartphones as weight will affect the magnet switch’s ability to hold and keep the cover shut. The spring-loaded bracket system is able to securely hold your smartphone in place and prevent it from slipping off during the use of the VR glasses. One thing to note about the spring-loaded bracket system is that the bracket system consists of thin, plastic sides. This means that when they are displaced apart to place your smartphone in the bracket system, they feel as though that they might break or be damaged easily since they do not feel very strong nor durable. Last, the vents that are on the sides of the cover effectively dispels the heat that is emitted from the smartphone as the internal temperature remains cool and is not hot.
The ELEGIANT 3D VR glasses are comfortable to wear, easy to utilize, and delivers an immersive experience. The VR glasses are lightweight and do not impose any unwanted pressure on your head when wearing them. This makes utilizing them for prolong periods of time plausible as your comfortability and user experience will not be hindered. The adjustability, whether it be in regards to the adjustable headband straps or the pupil and focal distance adjustments, is excellent. The headband straps allows you to adjust the sizing of the VR glasses uncomplicatedly to provide a secured fit. The pupil and focal distance adjustments allows 3D apps/games as well as side-by-side movies to be clear and visible to the user. The removable front cover along with the side vents on the cover helps to keep the temperature cool within the VR glasses housing. The magnet switch makes opening and closing the cover simple even though it might from time to time open up on its own when putting on and taking off the VR glasses. Last, placing and removing the smartphone from the spring-loaded bracket system is straightforward. So, these VR glasses are perfect for those who are new to VR and want VR glasses that are affordable and can provide a great user experience in regards to comfortability, immersion, and adjustability.
