Well, there you have the specification sheet of VR headsets; while Meta Quest Pro is the latest among the lot, it seems that ByteDance’s PICO 4 is standing along with the Quest Pro in terms of specs. However, we’ll have to wait for a full-on comparison until sometime later.

Furthermore, if you’re planning to get yourself a VR headset, we’ll suggest you go with the much cheaper PICO 4, which is almost on par with the Meta Quest Pro. However, if you’re just getting into the VR headset scene, you can also go with Meta Quest 2. Meanwhile, if we look at the pricing, the PICO 4 and the Meta Quest 2 do not sit that far apart. Meaning if you want the 4K experience with a little more goodies in your first VR headset, we suggest you go with the PICO 4.
