    I'm thinking about buying a VR headset.
    I just want to look around in the 3D world, I want to use my own controllers and there is no need for me to do it standing or walking.

    I was thinking about a HTC vive cosmos elite HDM, or a Valve Index.
    Can i do with just buying the headset? or do i still need to buy and install base-stations?

    IINM both of those headsets require the base stations for tracking even though you may be sitting still.

    I found out, I need a VR set with inside-out tracking.
    So the "Normal" HTC Vive cosmos will do,
    Now i have find out if i can buy it without the controllers

    If you're mainly into seated sim experiences, HP Reverb (late 2019 model) def has my recommendations.

    I would just go for Oculus Rift S if you drive with speakers or latest HP Reverb but ideally wait for the next one. 2048x2048 px for (I think )700$

    @Peter Nielsen and @Oskier


    Thanks, You are probably right about the HP.
    i looked further in to it, to find out the HP Reverb would be the most serious candidate.

    I've found the Samsung Odyssey Plus to work great. No need for external stations, and the screen-door-effect is nowhere to be seen. A lot less expensive than the Index, too.
