HTC makes also makes a great PC VR headset. It's called the HTC Vive.

The Vive uses external sensors to let you move around a full room. Add the 3D headset tracking and directional audio and it offers the most realistic VR experience you can get on a PC. Force feedback motors in the included wireless controllers add another layer of realism.

If you should step out-of-bounds, an alert tells you to get back into an external sensor’s view.  A front-facing camera on the headset shows you the real world even when you're in a game.
