The technology is still fairly new, but there are already some outstanding advancements to virtual reality. Thanks to innovations like Google Cardboard, the hardware is also much more affordable.

The DAWAY VR headset is a prime example, utilizing your phone to provide high-definition viewing. But this headset is set apart by the integrated headphones that provide superb surround sound. It makes gaming and watching movies all the more immersive.

Setting up the headset is really straightforward. Your phone goes into the front, and you can enjoy content through your VR app of choice. You view the action through two acrylic glass lenses, which provide crystal-clear optics with a 120-degree field of view.

The headset can be adjusted for myopia and hyperopia, which is important for avoiding stomach-churning vertigo. The stereo sound is delivered through headphones baked into the headset.

The whole device weighs just 410 grams, and the head strap is comfortable for long viewing sessions. The headset offers touch controls for adjusting volume, and you can even take hands-free calls thanks to the integrated microphone.

The Virtual Reality Box headset usually retails at $99, but you can currently get one for just $38.99 via the Daily Dot store. The price takes 60 percent off MSRP, and includes free shipping to the U.S.
