EDITOR'S REVIEW
OVERALL EDITOR'S RATING:
What It Is

Watch your favorite Discovery Channel TV shows like never before with the Discovery Virtual Reality Headset with Stereo Headphones. This transforms your smartphone into an immersive virtual reality theater. You'll need to download the Discovery VR app, which is a free download for iOS and Android smartphones. Through the app, you can view content from your favorite shows, such as Shark Week, Mythbusters, Behind the Scenes with Discovery, Gold Rush, and more all in an immersive 360-degree view.

But the device can also be used to view other VR content and games. The instruction booklet offers suggestions of other free apps to download.

No matter what app you're using, you'll need to insert your smartphone into the device. Pop open the front cover, slide your phone into the holder, and plug the cable into your phone's headphone jack. Then, close the cover.

The headset has a three-way adjustable Velcro strap to ensure a stable fit on your head, and there is a padded headpiece, eyepiece, and earpieces for comfort. The stereo headphones are also adjustable.

Other features include an adjustable focus knob on the side and on the top, plus volume control.

Is It Fun?

Obviously, this is Discovery-branded, and its intended use is for watching the videos through the Discovery VR app. While we enjoyed swimming with sharks through Shark Week videos and running around with puppies during the Puppy Bowl, this headset doesn't have to be relegated to only Discovery Channel things. With its great sound quality and high comfort level, it's a nice VR headset for kids and adults to view and play other VR apps, too.

Who It’s For

The Discovery Virtual Reality Headset with Stereo Headphones is for ages 8 and up. This is a nice VR headset that offers today's popular technology in an easy-to-use format for kids.

What To Be Aware Of

The Discovery VR app is a separate and free download. It is compatible with iOS and Android smartphones. Android users should make sure to download the Discovery VR for Cardboard app.

A smartphone is not included. This supports phones with a screen size between 3.5 inches and six inches.

If you wear glasses, it's recommended that you take off your glasses before wearing this headset.
