Zeiss has built ventilations ports into the headset to prevent the lens from fogging, and the openings in the smartphone tray allow the sound coming from your iPhone to reach your ears clearly and loudly. Compared to most other VR headsets on the market, the VR ONE Plus stands out because users don’t have to make any mechanical lens adjustments to account for different interpupillary distances.

You can use the Beusoft VR headset with smartphones from 4.5” to 6.3”, including the iPhone 6, 6 Plus, and 7. It’s possible to adjust the optical elements inside the headset to compensate for vision differences, making it possible for you to leave your glasses on the bedside table while you explore virtual worlds.
