What fpv goggles have the largest field of view?
If you are looking for a pair of fpv goggles with the largest field of view, that would be the DJI Goggles Racing Edition.
Its fov is a whopping 148 degrees. Most other fpv goggles have a fov less than 50 degrees.
These are top end fpv goggles. The DJI Goggles RE has a latency of 50 ms, 12 channels and is capable of 1280x960 at 50 fps.
While these are not 3D goggles and do not have an OLED display, they are extremely good for fpv flying.
The fpv flying experience is truly immersive. Head tracking is awesome and the image quality is exceptionally good.
If you are near sighted and need to wear glasses, you can wear these goggles over them. You cannot do that with most goggles.
Here are the fov values for some of the more popular fpv goggles ...

Are fpv goggles with larger fov better than others?
Field of view (fov) is the angular size of the goggles' view cone. The number that's given as fov by most manufacturers is the diagonal field of view.
A larger field of view would result in a more immersive fpv experience. But it would also mean you are viewing things on a much larger screen.
Reading the OSD will be a lot easier when the screen is smaller - or if the fov is smaller. And so not everyone prefers a very large fov.
Field of view is not so very important in drone photography. But that's not the case in drone racing. When you are racing drones, you need to have a much bigger fov so that you can see your competitors more readily.
FOV of cameras vs fov of goggles
A lot of people who are new to fpv find this a bit confusing.
FPV cameras and fpv goggles each have their own FOVs.
Your fpv camera may have a field of view of 150 degrees. And your googles may have a fov of 42 degrees.
If you buy a pair of goggles with a very large field of view - say 148 degrees, that would be almost like watching a TV that's 10 feet across, while sitting maybe 6 to 10 feet away.
And using a pair of fpv goggles with a fov of 42 degrees would be like watching a 32 inch TV from the same distance.
With FPV goggles that have a very large fov, your eyes will need to do quite a bit more work. Even to look at the OSD might require you to move your eyes all the way to the left or the right.
Using fpv goggles with a very large fov would be like looking at a really large TV screen. Some people love it. Some don't.
