The virtual reality market is one which is booming right now. At least, booming with interest as the actual availability of VR-related products is a little limited. There are options, however, they are quite polarized options. For instance, on the one hand you have the more cardboard and/or plastic options, which while being affordable do offer a limited experience and are dependent on being used with a smartphone. On the other side of things there's the likes of the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift which do offer the current best-in-class experience, but do come with serious price tags attached and also need to be typically tethered to a PC. Although, there is always the Envy EVR01 VR headset.

Unlike the typical higher and lower end VR options, the Eny EVR01 is very different. Its materials are largely in line with what you would expect from the plastic options and this means that it is only priced at $80. However, the big difference with the Eny EVR01 is that it does not require a connection to your smartphone or to a PC. The reason being is that this one comes with its own display inside and also comes running on Android. In short, it is basically an all-in-one virtual reality headset and again, one that is priced at only $80.

In terms of the specs, the Eny EVR01 comes with its own 5-inch display which makes use of a 1280 x 720 resolution. The Eny EVR01 comes loaded with 1GB RAM (although there seems to be an optional 512MB option as well) and is powered by an Rockchip (RK3126) quad-core processor (clocking at 1.3 GHz) along with a Mali 400 MP2 GPU. In terms of storage, while the headset only comes with 8GB (optional 16GB model listed as well) internal storage, it does offer the option to expand thanks to the inclusion of a microSD card slot with support up to 32GB. The Envy EVR01 is able to connect over Bluetooth 4.0 and Wi-Fi and comes powered by a 2,200 mAh battery, which is said to offer about three and a half hours of usage. Last but not least, the Eny EVR01 comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.
