Royole Moon – 3D Virtual Mobile Theater [REVIEW]

Royole Moon allows you to take the movie theater experience on the go. Most people will compare this headset to something like the HTC Vive but this is something completely different. A VR headset is for watching 360-degree content, Royole Moon is for watching movies or playing games without disturbing anyone around you.  Let’s take a look at this 3D Virtual Mobile Theater.

What does it do?

In short, The Royole Moon is a headset for personal movie watching. Inside is a 1080p AMOLED display with over 3000PPI (Pixels per inch). This creates a virtual 800” giant curved screen experience when you have the headset on. It also can playback movies in 3D very well. The headset comes with a small box which is how it plays movies. It’s called the Moon box and it connects to the Royle Moon via the USB-C cable attached to it. The box comes with a Micro USB to USB 2.0 adaptor so you can play media off of a USB stick. You can also transfer movies to the built-in 32gb storage from an external storage device or wirelessly transfer files. There is also built-in apps like Netflix, Youtube, and a Web browser. Oh, and you can display your smartphone’s display to the headset wirelessly. It goes without saying that there is almost no limit to what the Royle Moon can play.

Can you hook up a games console to it?

YES! On top of all the features I mentioned above, The Royole Moon comes with a Mini HDMI to HDMI adapter that allows you to plug in a PS4 and play games on it. It works well but it doesn’t beat the living experience. It works with any other HDMI device as well as a PC. Unlike other VR headsets, The resolution is good enough for me to read text off of the screen very easily.

Design

The Royale Moon feels like a piece of technology from the future. Every detail is impressive. The built-in headphones are high-quality noise canceling and they are comfortable enough to wear for long periods of time. Most of the controls are done by using the touch-sensitive headphone panel. It works just like a trackpad and gets the job done. Moving forward and back between menus can some time to get used to. The complete headset is lightweight enough to throw travel with but feels like a premium device.

Is it worth it?

This is the tricky part, I really do love Royole Moon but it is hard for me to recommend due to its price. It has amazing features and impressive quality parts but $799 is sure to turn off the average person. This is perfect for those who travel a lot or maybe for watching movies in bed. I can’t imagine this is right for someone to casually take on the bus in the mornings. However, I am very impressed with the overall design and the ability to watch almost anything on this headset.
