Great product but.. overheat phone rapidly in streaming

Product works great. Clear view, fits well and is not too heavy for comfort. only problem, when watching VR video, it overheat the phone rapidly when streaming, like in 15 minutes of watching a video, so you have to either stop to help cooling your phone, or, continue, but watching a video that stops every 2 seconds.

Great VR experience

I bought this open box product primarily because of the price. I had previously purchased another headset from another company and paid twice the price for much lower quality with a less than acceptable VR experience. As such, my expectations of this headset were quite low, I was pleasantly surprised when I mounted my Galaxy S7 edge into the headset and ran the Samsung VR interface. 360 video's are clear and stable and 3D movies jump right out at you. This headset is quite light and extremely comfortable to wear. The design allows for you to wear prescription glasses and the headset jack of your phone is accessible which allows you to plug in your favorite headphones. This headset has renewed my interest in VR. I definitely recommend this product.

Great product

Well if your a geek like me then you want to try new gadgets, and this is a great one for the price. The grainy visual takes a bit of time to get use to as well as the VR effect can make you woozy at first. Love it. Long time use will depend on your phone and cooling.
