Mixed Reality Headset Cases: What Case Should I Get?

IMG-8123Awesome – so you now own the best VR headset in the market – one of the Microsoft Mixed Reality Headset (MRH)…!!!  (or are looking to get one) 

Best in class hardware + no external sensors (“Inside-out-tracking”) + more and more applications being released every day.

And of course you want to share it…

Take it to your friend’s house…

Take it to community developer groups and show off all the awesome stuff you’re creating… 

But it didn’t come with a case… and if you search for a case online, no specific cases (or very very few) come up.

So… I bought 4 different cases from Amazon that were marketed for either the Sony PlayStation VR, HTC Vive or Oculus Rift  – and here are the results for both the HP and Samsung Mixed Reality Headsets.  Noting that the Samsung has build in headphones and is therefore larger than the HP.

(1) Hard EVA Travel Case for Sony PSVR by Hermitshell ($32.99)  [Left case in picture]
  PROS:  Best case of the group – fits both Samsung and HP – space for controllers – very sturdy case.
  CONS:  NA
  Recommended for both Samsung and HP – with controllers.

(2) Hard Travel Case for PSVR Virtual Reality Headset by co2CREA ($29.99)  [2nd case from left]
  CONS: Does NOT fit Samsung.  Very flimsy.  Overwhelmingly very strong plastic smell.  Not recommended.

(3) Khanka Hard Case Travel Bag for Sony PSVR ($26.99) [3rd case from left]
  CONS:  Does NOT fit Samsung.  Overwhelmingly very strong plastic smell.  Not recommended.

(4) Storage Case for PlayStation VR ($13.99)  [Last case in picture]
  PROS:  Fits the HP headset – sturdy case. 
  CONS:  Does NOT fit Samsung.  No space for controllers.
  Recommended for HP without space for controllers.
