It can be difficult to come up with ways to test your headset, and even more so ones that won’t outright break bank. and that’s why we’re here to show you!


Make Sure The Headset Is Ready

This is the preliminary step you need to complete before testing, after all, you can’t test anything if you haven’t gotten the hardware out of the way. Make sure your device is plugged in and connected to the best of your ability, follow the manual for the device down to the letter. Often times Headset issues come down to incorrectly following the instructions for installing it with your PC or phone.

Check compatibility

Sometimes your headset will simply be incompatible with your device, this is a surprisingly common mistake to make. Some headsets won’t work with a PC while some will run into issues working on a phone. Make sure to check this before purchasing the headset.


Now this may come as a surprise, but probably the best way to test the functionality of your VR headset to try it. Due to the way VR porn works on VR headsets, it’s the ideal way to test the degrees of rotation, as well as the resolution of your headset. VR porn videos tend to come in many different resolutions, so you can see which one fits your headset the best.

VR Games


VR games offer similar advantages to the porn, they allow you to test the functionality of your headset, test the supported resolutions and angles of rotation, however games also allow you to test its responsiveness to input as well as output. They let you interact much better, and you can see just how well the outside peripherals of your VR device are working out for it. There’s a lot of free VR games online, and we recommend using a platform such as Steam to find a bunch of new free VR games whenever you want.

Those are the main ways of testing VR headsets for free, however if you have other ways that you know, or have certain recommendations for them,  then please notify us in the comments, we love learning about new things VR.
