I can’t use this headset (5k+). My eyes are straining. I think I’ve tried most suggestions I’ve come across to fix this but nothing has helped so far. I’ve tried modifying the headset with the DAS mod and switching between various types of VR cover foams with different thickness. Also tried positioning the headset in different ways on my face/head. Nothing solves the issue. I’ve tried for about a week now. Pimax5k+ is very unconformable for my eyes.
My IPD is 60 and no matter how I change the IPD slider I feel discomfort, the lower the number the better it is but still not usable for me. With the Vive Pro headset I’m fine at 60, no eye strain.
Another issue I have is distortions, not just the blurry ones at the sides (that one is just the way it is for everybody I think) but I’m also experiencing some kind of fishbowl effect when I move my head around. I’ve had this issue with other headsets to a lesser degree like Oculus Rift and Samsung Odyssey, but Pimax is worse. On Vive Pro there is no distortions like this, the VR world feels very stable when I move my head around, no feeling of being inside a fishbowl like Pimax5k+.
Could the IPD issue be fixed with a IPD software slider if Pimax provided some option for that in the PiTool software?
Could IPD issues and distortions be fixed with eye tracking? It looks like StarVR apparently solved that issue. If they can do it then why not Pimax too when they get the eye tracking module working? From StarVR webbsite:
· Seamlessly integrated with Tobii eye tracking technology
· Auto IPD measurement and distortion adjustments
· Dynamic foveated rendering
Also Sebastian at MRTV tested it and was impressed: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvFBUvfpQJ8&t=287s
