Stick with the free google cardboard. I have this exact headset and a variety of others. Pretty much in terms of experience, they are all the same. This headset has controls which I pretty much never use and of course the headstrap. If you can live with holding up the cardboard like binocs then there's not much difference at all. At least use the cardboard to get a taste to see if it's even worth it. For me, I can only stand these things for about 10-15 mins at a time. The phones feel the same since they get really really warm.

I've been using VR gear for over 20 years. The same issues we had 20 years ago still exist today. Until those get resolved, I don't see how VR gear will really go mainstream instead of being a party trick.

Seriously, I think the only cardboard that was worth some money were the Mr. Robot ones they handed out at the Global VR event during comic-con. Shortly thereafter they were going for $20 or so. But that maybe because they came with Apple earbuds too.
