Field of view: Up to 110
Integrated headphones, Dual array mics

500 bucks, is cheaper than the Vive but 100 bucks more than the Rift. The resolution is better though and AMOLED displays are just better. I am probably going to spring for a set for my Birthday in February .
My understanding is that the Windows "Mixed Reality" devices, of which this Samsung headset is one, will ultimately work with Steam VR, but not the Oculus infrastructure. I'm hoping I'm misinformed.

I've got an Oculus and came close to ordering the Samsung last week... I think I'll let it evolve a few months first.
