HTC VIVE Focus review

The HTC VIVE Focus is a standalone VR headset made by HTC, a world-famous technology manufacturer from Taiwan. HTC’s VIVE Focus is one of the first standalone VR headsets to have 6DoF (6 Degrees of Freedom).

VIVE Focus users have access to VIVE Wave, HTC’s open content platform. This platform integrates the content that is already present on the HTC VIVEPORT platform.

VIVE Focus VR headset main features

  • Inside-out 6DoF: this wireless VR headset provides 6 degrees of freedom without the need for external sensors or lighthouses. This is possible thanks to the headset’s dual front cameras.
  • 3DoF controller: a Bluetooth controller comes with this virtual reality headset (switching to 6DoF mode is possible).
  • Removable leather face cushion: enables users to easily clean the face cushion when necessary.
  • microSD card slot: users have the possibility to access up to 2 TB additional storage.
  • Built-in microphone and speakers: for more immersion. There is also a 3.5 mm stereo audio jack if users wish to use their own earphones.

VIVE Focus 2.0 software updates:

  • 6DoF controller mode
  • PC VR streaming function
  • Basic gesture tracking functionality
  • Passenger mode allows for extra battery life
  • Additional HTC smartphone-to-headset features
