Don't get us wrong, you're still handing over a significant pile of change here, but the excellent performance and fairly low required specs make for an intriguing proposition. This headset is essentially the same as the Cosmos Elite bundle below, but you can choose whether to pick up the external tracking accessories later on or not.
