So are we, and turns out it won't be much longer until we learn much more about them.
The only real details we got at Microsoft's event, which saw the unveiling of the Surface Studio PC, Surface Book i7 and Surface Dial, was that the headsets would run a virtual Windows experience, come from key partners (see photo above) and have a low starting price of $299 (about £245, AU$295).
Those are slated for December 8 - 9 and December 14 - 15 in Shenzhen, China and Taipei City, Taiwan, respectively.

The headsets will also have a "high field of view" and six degrees of freedom, allowing users to move in any direction.
What's more, the same inside-out tracking tech found in HoloLens will be built into the headsets. Inside-out tracking uses cameras woven into a headset to follow user movements instead of relying on external cameras positioned around the environment.
Disappointingly, these third-party headsets will need to be tethered to a computer in order to work, at least to start, though perhaps they'll break free as time goes on.
