Pimax 5K+ review

The Pimax 5K+ is a tethered VR headset produced by Pimax, a manufacturer based in China. Pimax also produces the Pimax 8K and Pimax 4K.

This PC VR headset is part of a Kickstarter campaign run by the manufacturer, concurrently with the Pimax 8K. A Pimax 5K is also available. However, the 5K+ offers more PPI compared to the 5K.

This VR headset has a wide FOV of 200°, which is very close to the human maximum FOV of 220°.

5K+ VR headset main features

  • 200° FOV: for more immersive virtual reality.
  • Full positional tracking (6DoF): for a more realistic VR experience.
  • Built-in headphones: provides full audio immersion.
  • Open VR system: the Pimax 5K+ is fully compatible with three VR content platforms (Oculus, SteamVR, PiHome), as well as third-party accessories like the HTC VIVE controllers and tracking cameras.

Pimax 5K+ optional modules

As is the case with the Pimax 8K, users have the option to customize their VR experience by purchasing extra modules, such as:

  • Wireless transmission: for cable-free virtual reality.
  • Leap Motion support: provides a more fluid experience with this hand motion tracker.
  • Pimax Knuckles controllers: the controllers have five-finger tracking, for increased functionality.
  • Eye-tracking: offers users better immersion by detecting the user’s gaze.
  • Cooling fan: to avoid overheating.

Pimax 5K+ price

The VR headset is available at the manufacturer price of $699. A bundle with Pimax VR controllers is available for $868.

Pimax has also made a bundled Pimax 5K BE version available for $1,168.00.
