    Which phone do you have? If you have a pixel then I would recommend the daydream VR.

    Google Cardboard
    - beginner’s virtual reality experience. Google Cardboard is cheap, the platform works with both Android and iOS devices, and there’s a lot of content available

    Samsung Gear VR
    - similar to Google Cardboard. $99 headset that uses your phone to process and display all the VR magic. it’s comfy and you don’t have to hold the headset to your face, because it comes with straps

    Oculus Rift ($600)
    HTC Vive ($800)
    or PlayStation VR ($400)
    - High-powered headsets.
    - Have positional tracking, so you’ll need to place small hardware components around a gaming space to track your movements (Excluding PS4VR)

    Hope this helps a little ^_^

    I think Microsoft is hurting its prospects with Hololens. It's not ready for primetime and they seem to be over promising on the field of view.

    Nexus 6P will be suitable with most mobile VR headsets. From the cheapest like Google Cardboard to more expensive like Google Daydream View. Mind you Gear VR is exclusively for Samsung phones.

    Why not buy a cheaper headset first and as you go along try the more premium ones? And when you decide you're really into VR, get HTC Vive!

    Here's an interesting article that lists 10 cheap VR headsets under $100.

    And check out my review of my new $5 VR headset:

    I see so many different ones. JC Penny had some for $30. Is that a good price or is it too cheap?

    I'm starting fairly cheap... A fits all phones "cardboard" style headset. And I'm adding a controller which should arrive tomorrow.

    So far I'm enjoying it. It lets me dabble and explore. I'm hoping the controller works well (it got decent reviews on Amazon) and helps navigate and interact.

    I talk a bit more about the headset here: http://forums.vrheads.com/introducti...543/#post60840

    Hopefully, I'll get a review posted soon.

    FWIW, unless you are planning on hardcore gaming anything in the cardboard range will be good for exploring virtual space.

    Good Luck.

    A cardboard or plastic set should be fine for a game experience. I would reccommend something with a button or magnetic tab.
    Also buying a controller, Afterall your going to need something to interact with the game. Really cheapest way to go. If you have a note a gear vr might be a good upgrade to that or if you have a google pixel a daydream set offering something inbetween.
    As for actual headsets their are so many like 40 i know of and can't really say which one is best since It's something you really have to try yourself but they are all similar just make sure it fits your phone and you probably will want a controller.
