avegant glyph headset is the latest gadget
The avegant glyph headset is a Cool design, futuristic concept and pretty awesome product with few drawbacks.
Take a significant time to adjust the avegant glyph headset controls and the positioning. You need to set the lens, nose pieces, rotating eye pieces ,brightness etc. Once you are set it gives the illusion that you just bought your own theater.
Video quality is one of best. I have multiple 360 gear where the video quality really poor. So my first expectations were not that high. But i was blown away by the how crystal clear image it provide. Since it uses immense number of micro mirror technology to display that explains the good image quality.
Unlike other VR you will struggle to find a visible pixel.
You can use it to watch pretty much everything TV, Xbox, play-station, movies, you tube, phone video. In other sense anything with standard HDMI cable. For your phone to work you have to buy HDMI converter which is usually cheap.I feel like wearing them is similar to having a 65-75 inch TV in your living room and it works really well.Another concern mostly people have is the battery power and it lasted pretty respectable 3 and 45 min.
One of the best use i found is for drone lovers. Just plug into HDMI cable into transmitter of the controller such as in DJI phantom and voila, you get to see everything the drone camera is capturing.
It still has the same issue as other VR gear in the market which is for how long you can use it before it start putting strain in your eyes, temple,nose etc.
My max time wearing them was 30 min, but those most of those minutes were worth wearing them. Another drawback i observed when you wear them as headphone the nose bridge in them looks really weird on your head.
Price is this product doesn’t explains the usability. However if you have extra bucks lying around then this is one of the best gadget you can invest into. Audio quality is average, plays middle frequencies fine, struggle with lower ones. So in total you won’t get the boomy sound like beats.
My Take: It´s a great product specially for the people who travel or for drone lovers. I believe the next iteration will be the one with most of the improvements and will be worth it.
Others cons: It is heavy, not usual headphone and it cost a lot.
Typical scenario for my usage in a day : I use it to watch you tube. Once in a while i play games on them, this is one of the best use i have for them as you will fell like you are in the game although not quite like 360 but it gives you pretty isolated environment
I have great hopes for this product in future.
