The holiday season is here and the deals have already started in earnest, including some fantastic VR headset deals on popular choices like the Meta Quest 2 and HP Reverb G2.

The headsets in this guide are worth checking out for more than just their discounts, indeed you'll see some of the very best VR headsets on the market. If you're worried about what games you can get, all VR headsets in our guide support Steam VR - except for the PlayStation VR. But it's not all about games, VR headsets offer some amazing experiences including the ability to explore the International Space Station. In fact, we even have a round-up of the best VR space experiences.

All VR headsets have their pros and cons, whether it's performance, price, compatibility or something else entirely. For example the PlayStation VR is a great price and it's up there with some of the best VR headset deals, but if you factor in the cost of a PlayStation as well, the price not seem as worth while. The Valve Index as well is one of the top models on the market and is really powerful, however you might want to look at getting a refurbished model for it to be a bit more affordable. However, to check out all the best VR headset deals all you have to do is read the round-up below.

In this section, you'll find the best available prices on models rom Oculus which is a division of Meta (Facebook) specializing in virtual reality headsets. While there isn't a great deal of selection here, both headsets are of high quality. It's worth noting the Oculus Rift S has been discontinued so you might have a tougher time getting a good deal on one. 

Oculus also has its Oculus Quest 2, model, which we reviewed and we think is very good value for money. If you're searching for a reliable headset that has access to loads of games and won't break the bank, the Oculus Quest 2 could be the best cheap VR headset out there.

Here we have Valve virtual reality headsets. We feature just one headset in this section but thankfully, it's an exceptional headset. It also comes with Half Life Alyx, which is regarded as the best virtual reality game out there. 

The Valve Index is a high-quality product. You may spend a bit more than with other VR sets, but if you're willing to spend the extra bit of cash you will end up with something that reflects that and doesn't disappoint. Bonus points if you can find it at a discounted price.

This section contains the most products in one section in this guide, and they're all from HTC. The four different headsets that feature here show the company's ability to produce high quality products on a consistent basis and we've picked the best ones to cover everyone's budget. 

HTC has been in the VR headset game longer than most, and it knows how to make a great VR headset. The HTC Vive Pro 2 is at the higher end of most people's budget but does have that extra quality whilst headsets like HTC Vive Cosmos Elite and the Cosmos are a bit less pricey and offer a fantastic VR experience.

PSVR, aka PlayStation Virtual Reality, is Sony's own proprietary VR headset for PlayStation consoles. That means it only works with PS4 and PS5 but this headset is nevertheless great because it offers players a new way to play and adds an entire new dimension to some of people's favorite games on the console. 

The headset has proven to be a popular way to play new games and experience virtual reality, so much so that Sony announced there is going to be a PSVR 2.

HP Reverb G2 VR headset

HP might be better known for its computers and printers, but it also makes a fantastic VR headset — the HP Reverb G2. It's the only VR product in the HP line at the moment, but it offers great specs and high quality gaming.

There is also a buffed up version of the G2 called the HP Reverb G2 Omnicept Edition. This includes a load of state of the art sensors, but it's not really meant for gaming or other everyday applications. We'd recommend saving the cash and sticking with the normal version.
