“After more than 500 hours, 8 months of daily use, this headset still looks as good as it did when it was new.”

“The comfort over long hours of flying is something that is really crucial to the experience of VR and making you feel like you are there, and that you almost forget you are wearing a VR headset. With the Aero, I have over 500 hours and every time I use it. I freaking love the thing. I hugely recommend the Aero over any headset. The main things I love about it regardless of the clarity, is that comfort, the active cooling, how light it is, the fact that I can wear this for hours and hours on end and not feel discomfort. Varjo Aero is the best VR headset we have right now.” – VR Flight Sim Guy

With variable-resolution aspheric lenses, the difference is crystal clear.

Varjo Aero features a cutting-edge optical design that propels users to a new level of visual fidelity, pushing the pixels tighter together directly in front of you. The variable resolution lenses create an ultra-sharp peak resolution of 35 PPD, right at the center of focus where it matters most – mimicking the way the human eye works. Alternative commercially available headsets max out closer to 20 PPD.

Compared to the murky experience of consumer-grade Fresnel lenses, the lenses in Varjo Aero are aspheric, offering an incredible true-to-life visual experience that makes god rays and the screen-door effect a thing of the past.
