Pimax has long made headsets popular among racing and flight simmers, including the most recent Crystal. Pimax has now responded to the request of many simmers by adding an SKU: The Crystal-Sim, available right now for a price of $1449, or $1549 with the Lighthouse.
The Crystal-Sim is an update to the Pimax Crystal, without controllers, and a lower refresh rate option. As an added bonus, the Crystal-Sim comes with a unique faceplate (customers can choose), and a discount for a Lighthouse faceplate.
The Pimax Crystal-Sim (Crystal-Sim Flight or Crystal-Sim Racing) is perfect for simmers, with a resolution of 2880×2880 resolution per eye, glass aspheric lenses with minimal to no distortion, and Tobii-powered eye-tracking for Dynamic Foveated Rendering.
The Crystal-Sim has the option to use 72 Hz, as well as 90 Hz and 120 Hz. The Crystal-Sim comes without controllers as flight simmers often use a yoke, and racing simmers use a steering wheel.
