I got a dell Mixed Reality VR headset im willing to part with. Basically because i don't use it... 

Its got two hand held units like the vive. Works with anything that runs windows mixed reality.


Its HDMI. And you can plug headphones/earbuds into it with 3.5mm jack.




Make an offer if you interested, you can try it out as well.

I really suggest you just borrow one from someone for a month if you can, that is about the point where the novelty wears off. The first week you'll think it's the best thing since sliced bread.
