Mully is a highly prolific Youtuber that generally creates VR content for his viewers.
The VR headset he uses is the HTC Vive Pro which is one of the best options out there for a PC VR headset.
In this post, we’ll take a look at Mully’s Youtube channel, his setup and the VR headset that he uses, in detail.
In this post, we will discuss:
- The Youtuber Mully and his channel
- The HTC Vive Pro
- A small buyers’ guide for VR headsets
So without further ado, let’s get into it.
Who is Mully?
Mully is an Australian Youtuber who creates VR gaming content on a regular basis. He has a fairly rigid schedule where he uploads at least two videos a week for his viewers to enjoy.
He does a lot to collaborate with other VR gaming Youtubers as well such as:
- Your Narrator
All in all, Mully is a great Youtuber to frequent if you’re someone that’s into VR gaming. He regularly posts about it and you can also find out about some great new VR games that are hitting the market.
It’s also a great place to look at gameplay footage for VR games that you may want to get but aren’t sure about. You can check out gameplay for it on Mully’s channel and then, decide whether or not it’s something you’d enjoy or not.
As mentioned earlier, Mully uses the HTC Vive Pro as his go-to VR headset.
What Games Does He Usually Play?
When it comes to what games he usually plays, it’s some of the staples of the VR gaming scene.
The ones he plays regularly include:
- Minecraft VR
- Sam & Dan: Floaty Flatmates
- Pavlov VR
- Zero Caliber VR
- The Forest
However, other than these regulars, he also checks out new VR games that come out and gives his opinions on what he thinks of them.
HTC Vive Pro – A Small Review
While the HTC Vive Pro is definitely a great VR headset, it should be stated that its next iteration, the HTC Vive Pro 2 has been out for quite some time.
Hence, we’d definitely recommend our readers to go for that instead of the older HTC Vive Pro. However, if you can’t afford the second iteration and want to go for a refurbished or used HTC Vive Pro, then that can definitely be a good choice.
However, for the purposes of this review, we’ll look at the HTC Vive Pro 2 rather than the HTC Vive Pro.
This is because even though the last time we heard, Mully was using the HTC Vive Pro but that update was over two years ago. Even we’re fairly sure that he would’ve upgraded to the next iteration by now.
The HTC Vive Pro 2 is one of the most high-end mainstream consumer VR headsets currently available in the market. It’s a great one to get if you have a beefy PC to support it and it’s also a great option if you’re someone who wants to get into VR development.
It features an unparalleled resolution of 2448 x 2448 display per eye on an LCD screen.
Plus, you have a huge range of adjustability options that you can tinker with in order to get the most clear and crisp VR image possible.
The tracking is incredibly accurate and the headset supports SteamVR tracking. Hence, all of the VR games that are available on Steam can be easily played with the help of this VR headset.
A Small Buyers’ Guide for VR Headsets
At the tail-end of this post, we decided to include a buyers’ guide. This is because many people just look at what their favorite Youtubers use and rush to buy that piece of equipment without doing adequate research.
What works for that particular Youtuber and their setup might not necessarily work for you.
Hence, you must critically analyze your needs and then opt for a VR headset accordingly.
Here are some factors to take into account when you want to buy a VR headset:
Look at your budget and then decide accordingly what range you want to browse in.
VR headsets can range from as little as $20 all the way to $1500. Hence, you really must decide how much you’re willing to spend.
That’ll determine what type of VR headset you can really buy and how deep you can enter into the world of virtual reality devices.
VR headsets are available for many different platforms. Depending on what resources you have, certain platforms might be better suited for you than others.
For example, if you already own a Playstation 4 console, then it makes a lot of sense to buy a PS VR Headset.
On the other hand, if you have a beefy PC, then it makes sense to buy a high-end PC VR headset such as the HTC Vive Pro 2.
In most cases, people won’t have either of those. In this case, you can opt for either a mobile-based VR headset or a standalone VR headset.
Almost everyone has a smartphone these days, and mobile-based VR headsets are also the cheapest VR headsets you can get your hands on. However, they are also the least sophisticated of the VR headsets.
Hence, if you want to delve a little bit deeper than a mobile-based VR headset, then you can opt for the Oculus Quest 2, which is a standalone VR headset.
It’s very important that the VR headset you get is user-friendly and does not come with a slew of technical issues as many low-quality ones do.
Make sure to do adequate research and read reviews that ensure the VR headset is easy to use and does not run into bugs or compatibility issues.
VR is supposed to be fun, not frustrating and tedious.
Hence, always look up reviews for the VR headset you intend to buy and read them thoroughly to identify any common issues that it may have.
Design and Comfort
VR can get physically intensive, and in such an environment, it’s very important that the VR headset is comfortable on your face.
You want it to be designed in a way where it rests softly on your face but at the same time, it leaves some space open to keep itself well-ventilated.
Remember that a VR headset has many parts, and it has to be well-designed with high-quality materials to ensure it doesn’t get too hot inside.
So that’s it, folks. The last time we heard, Mully was using the HTC Vive Pro. However, that was more than two years ago so, it might be safe to assume that he’s updated to the HTC Vive Pro 2 at this point.
In any case, it shouldn’t matter what he uses as that should not be the basis on which you buy a VR headset for yourself. Ask yourself what your needs are, identify them and then, look for a VR headset that fulfills those needs.
