Newbie headset

Level 2


I bought my son a rift headset for Xmas (the black one). 

How do we set it up (no instructions ) we've charged the headset up  but do we need a pc to get it up and running.

I've downloaded the oculus app on his phone and set up an account for him but we are alittle lost as to why its not working. 

There isn't a button on the headset to turn it on so not sure if we've done it right. Have looked on Google but alittle lost to what we need to do. 

Many thanks
