I typed out some quotes from MRTV (Sebastian) so you can see what he thinks of a pre-release sample of the 8K-X. NB: This is not the final version.
Timecodes below from Sebastian’s 8K-X unboxing video on MRTV Youtube channel.
1:00 “This does not come in the original Pimax 8K-X retail box”. <—’ Making sure everyone knows.
1:50 “This is one of the very first production model 8K-X, this is the final unit”. <— NB: a genuine error. Sebastian was unaware his headset isn’t the final version.
2:00 Without further a do, you’re going to learn way more in the final review, this is about unboxing this and having a look at what I got here".
2:10 “As you can see, not the final retail box, just came to me like this”.
2:50 “It was really well packaged to make sure it arrived in one piece”.
3.00. “The first thing you feel when you touch it, is it feels way better”.
3.29. “So for the very very first early impression, build quality seems to be way better than before”.
3.45"A nice comfortable head strap. That was missing before, a nice modular audio strap, but now we have this now".
4.20 “Way easier to adjust the headstrap than the Vive Cosmos, which actually was a disaster”.
5.18. “This is some sort of cotton material. Feels really nice, soft to the touch”.
5.38 “I already like this a lot, that you can exchange all these parts should you want to do so. That is for sure, really good”.
6.08 “This part is new (nose shield), so you don’t have light bleed. Way better than before. Also your nose has more space now compared to the old Pimax headsets. That is for sure a big advantage”.
7.38 “The Vision Comfort Kit is way bigger and when you try it, it’s very comfortable”.
8.10 “The USB-C port looks a bit better than the one found on the old Pimax headsets”.
9.05" “It feels so, so nice. It feels so good on the face”.“It’s really really very good, it feels very comfortable”.
9.10 “It’s just great” (The MAS).
9.35 “So far, the most comfortable headset”.
10.00 “I can tell you when you piut this on, this is the most comfortable headset that I’ve worn so far”. “And yes, I would say this is even more comfortable than the Valve Index, because it’s lighter and you have these beautiful materials”.
10.25 “This material is really comfortable and you have this cotton material in the back, wow. Very very nice comfort”.
10.59 My first impression? Amazing. Material is way better than before, it’s super comfortable and I’m looking forward to review it".
