I've played around with the Playstation VR demo at Best Buy and tried a Galaxy Gear VR at the mall, but was pretty underwhelmed by both. Are the high-end products like Oculus Rift and HTC Vive really that much better?

I would rewrite the title as "The post-virtual-reality feelings of sadness", it's clearer for the reader. At least, it would be for me.
Even better: Post-virtual-reality sadness.

"What I quickly noticed after a couple hours of intense VR sessions is the feeling you get the hours after. Depending your experience in VR, this feeling can sometimes hold on for hours, especially if you’re new to VR.
And I’m not talking about motion sickness or any immediate effects that are easier to track down.
What I’m talking about is a weird sense of sadness & depressed feeling.
