Developed with the help of Microsoft and Valve, the HP Reverb G2 it brings several improvements over its predecessor, and delivers a perfect headset for those who need quality equipment for use in virtual reality games.

The equipment's main differential lies in the device's lenses: designed by Valve, the new HP Reverb G2 bring significant improvements to the visual experience of users, with full RGB definition and 2K resolution in each eye. This allows the user to view the textures more clearly, greatly improving the gaming experience. In addition, the equipment also has a field of view of 114, which prevents the user from seeing the actual location where they are through the gaps in the device, further increasing the immersion.

Another major improvement in the headset's sound system, with a solution ready to support the call space audio. This effect is created by using proprietary technologies from Microsoft and HP Labs in conjunction with artificial intelligence algorithms, which create new ways of processing sound signals based on psychoacoustics (a branch of science that studies how humans perceive different sounds). This allows the user to feel that the sounds he hears are coming from several different points in the scene, and not just from the headphones in his ears, further increasing the sensation of immersion.
