Avegant Glyph review: A wearable cinema for serious movie fans

 

The idea behind the Avegant Glyph is pretty simple. It's a $699 portable, wearable movie theater. And if you're thinking it looks more like a pair of Beats than a cinema screen, there's good reason: It moonlights as a pair of regular headphones, of...

Crisp image quality ; Excellent sound ; Immersive viewing experience

Headphone mode is a little uncomfortable in prolonged use ; Battery life could be better ; Some features not fully exploited

The Avegant Glyph is trying something different, but treading new ground also means making a few missteps. The core movie-viewing experience is enjoyable, but some of the more immersive features such as head tracking are yet to be full exploited. If...

The Avegant Glyph projects images directly on to your eyes

 

What can I tell you about the 20 hours I spent running through primeval forests, chasing down a saber-toothed tiger? I can tell you that it was different for me than it was for the vast majority of...

Bright, immersive screen ; You can see your environment around you ; Works with any HDMI device

Very hard to configure for comfort ; Expensive ; Dorky looking

Avegant Glyph: What it's like to use headphones for your eyes

 

Lurking in those headphones are displays that project light right into your retina. We've been wearing one for days.

Review: Avegant Glyph delivers on “personal theater” promise

 

It's a nice HDMI screen for your face—but it's got one big problem.

High build quality and solid design—it's clear a lot of care has been taken putting the device together ; Bright, clear display without obvious screen-dooring or pixellation ; Good audio, both when used for movies and also when just listening to music...

Priced like a first-gen product ; 720p max resolution bound to annoy people who want all the pixels ; DLP display is still a DLP display, with ghosting and strobing issues ; Not sure we care much about the 3D stuff ; If you use it in public, you’re...

The Avegant folks are careful not to position the Glyph as a "virtual reality" device—this is a head-mounted DLP-based personal theater, plain and simple. It has a nice 720p DLP display that produces a bright and clear image, though the visuals have...

Avegant Glyph: What it's like to use headphones for your eyes

 

I slipped the nosepiece on, adjusting the focus on the eyepieces. Sitting by the window on New Jersey Transit with a pair of headphones pulled down over my eyes, I was astonished more people weren't staring at me when I lifted them to show my ticket to...
