The HMD Odyssey has dual 3.5-inch AMOLED displays (1,440 x 1,600 resolution each), built-in spatial AKG headphones, inside-out tracking and a built-in microphone. It also comes with Microsoft's motion controllers, which should work with the other Windows Mixed Reality headsets as well. According to Samsung, the HMD Odyssey will have a 110-degree field of view. Samsung's HMD Odyssey marks the sixth Windows Mixed Reality headset we've seen so far, but it's the first one with integrated headphones (which reminds us a lot of the Rift).
"Samsung is committed to working across platforms to build cutting-edge technology, and we're excited to partner with Microsoft to shape the future of virtual reality," said Alanna Cotton, the VP and General Manager for Samsung Electronics America, in a statement.
The HMD Odyssey will retail for $499, which is certainly up there in price compared to the other Windows Mixed Reality headsets. Other headsets like the Dell Visor and the Lenovo Explorer are about $350 each ($450 with the controllers), while the Acer is $300 ($400 with controllers) and the HP is $329 ($429 with controllers). The ASUS headset is more on par cost-wise, with a price tag of 449 Euros, which is around $500 USD. All of the above headsets are available for pre-order today.
