Enter a new dimension of PC gaming with the VIVE Cosmos Elite VR Headset from HTC. This headset is your portal to experiencing virtual reality in the comfort of your home. The primary system includes the Cosmos Elite headset, two VIVE controllers, and two VIVE Base Station 1.0 sensors. These external sensors, along with SteamVR tracking built into the headset, are engineered to precisely track your every movement within VR, even when your hands are behind your head.

The headset produces a virtual reality landscape via dual 3.4" LCD panels with a combined 2880 x 1700 resolution. At this resolution, the pixels are extremely small and close together, which equates into finer graphic detail and a minimizing of the "screen-door" effect. The headset is designed to be comfortable and accommodating for all shapes and sizes. It has an adjustable head strap, an adjustable eye comfort setting, and can be worn over glasses.

You can enjoy a variety of VR experiences and games in a multitude of genres. Access content from third-party clients, such as Valve's Steam, or through HTC's own VIVEPORT Infinity library. You can also access content within VR via the VIVE Reality System, which includes VIVEPORT Video and Firefox Reality. VIVEPORT Video gives you a theater-like video experience, and Firefox Reality provides a way to browse the web in VR. Once in an application or game, the built-in on-ear stereo headphones add to the immersion with spatialized sound and 3D audio environments.

Flip-Up Design
The front of the headset can be flipped up to easily transition between the virtual world and the real world without having to take off the entire headset.
Precision Tracking
SteamVR tracking within the headset and external VIVE Base Station sensor tracking combine to detect all angles of movement, even behind your head. Whether you're wielding a laser rifle, commanding a starship, or climbing a cliff face; it's fine-detail tracking like this that helps dial up the realism in VR. This system is capable of supporting seated, standing, and room-scale experiences up to 160 ft² (an area approximately 11.5 x 11.5" square).
Intuitive Controllers
The two wireless VIVE controllers are how you interact with everything from virtual displays and interfaces, to objects and avatars. The VIVE controllers give you a multifunction trackpad, grip buttons, dual-stage triggers, a system button, and a menu button for complete control within VR. When not in use, you can easily recharge them with the included micro-USB cables and optional chargers or through your PC.
Integrated Microphone
A microphone is built into the headset so you can chat with others in VR spaces and multiplayer games.
VIVE Reality System
When you start to use the VIVE Cosmos Elite headset, you can begin your journey in Origin, a waypoint within VR. From Origin, you can bring up your lens for information and navigate into a variety of virtual reality apps, experiences, and games, such as those you can purchase from the VIVEPORT Infinity library.
Easy to Clean
HTC used materials that are easy to clean in order to simplify the upkeep of your headset.

HTC VIVE Cosmos Elite VR Headset is awesome! Easy to set up. Works with Steam VR out of the box. The flip up design is great functionality. Sensors pick up all movement. Controllers work right every time (I have Oculus Rift S that I cannot say the same about). B&H delivered on time and extremely well packaged.

quick painless purchase. Product so far is awesome. Coming from PSVR this is amazing. Its a little heavier but after a few moments I got used to it. The flip up feature is savage, but it makes the headset feel 5x heavier which isn't a bad thing just an interesting example of how position and fulcrum affect the feel of weight. Anyhow great produce great service. Will be back in the future.

It took me a while to decide on a VR headset. Initially I was going for a valve Index, however, that is sold out and has an 8 week (APRIL 2020) wait period. Thus I looked to the HTC. I am running the VR system off a laptop, it does work! Needs to have a mini display port but it is doable (look in the top of one of the boxes for the included adapter). This kit includes 6months of VivePort Infinity and Half-Life Alyx. The redemption was a bit tricky but it did work and gave a steam key. Other reviews on the internet has said that the controllers are dated, I did not have this same feeling. They are the older models but still are a good way to enter the VR space and have every thing be immersive. The buttons are clicky and tactile when they need to be and nice and smooth otherwise. The set-up of everything is super simple with the HTC VivePort app and SteamVR. A few updates are required but it still is less than 30min total to setup including mounts for the base stations. If you cannot find a small enough space to mount your base station (16ft or 5m apart MAX) mount then to the roof. They have no height limit besides being 2m+.

love it

I have a Ryzen 5 Pro 3400G (3.7 GHz) w/ Radeon Vega Graphics. Will that work with this Headset?
Asked by: Emilio
It is a requirement that the HTC VIVE Cosmos Elite VR Headset is a dedicated Graphics Card with at least 4GB Dedicated VRAM, regardless of CPU. Radeon Vega Graphics, when paired with a CPU, are still integrated graphics, not dedicated.

What’s the difference Vive pro and Cosmo

What’s the difference Vive pro and Cosmo
Asked by: Anonymous
This uses a slightly higher resolution LCD screens rather than the OLED found in the VIVE Pro. And just to clarify, the Cosmos Elite uses base stations to track rather than inside out tracking like the regular Cosmos. You can swap the front face plate if you would like to use inside out tracking but its pretty terrible.
