Avegant AG101 overview

  • 1Description

The Glyph Personal Theater Headset from Avegant delivers a truly immersive viewing experience at home or while you're on the go. Featuring patented Retinal Imaging Technology, this video headset safely projects HD images onto your retina, mimicking the way your eyes perceive light in your everyday environment. Each image is projected at a resolution of 1280 x 720p per eye, meaning image clarity is hardly distinguishable from viewing the natural world, and the optics are fully adjustable, so you can enjoy extended viewing without the need for glasses.

To upload content to the Glyph, simply connect the included HDMI cable between the source and the headset—no software required. The Glyph also has a 3.5mm input for when you just want to listen to music. Most video formats are supported, including 3D and 360-degree videos, with head tracking onboard for 360-degree content.

The Glyph comes with an HDMI and USB cable for transferring content and charging the device. A lens cover, optional headstrap, and carrying case are also included, as well as four interchangeable nose pieces.

Screenless Display
Advanced optics create complete images, not pixels on a screen that your eyes have to interpret.
Long Term Comfort
The Avegant Glyph does the work for your eyes. Visual input is very natural, with no lag time, so there's never fatigue.
No Side Effects
The Avegant Glyph avoids eyestrain, headaches, and the physical discomforts sometimes associated with head mounted displays. Images are focused for your eyes, so you can just relax and enjoy the show.
Advanced Viewing Technology
The Glyph uses Avegant's Retinal Imaging Technology to transmit vivid, life-like images directly to the eye. The image begins with a low powered LED that passes through a patented set of optics and then is reflected off of a microscopic mirror array. The reflected light is then focused through a second set of optics and projected directly onto the retina, mimicking the way we perceive light in our everyday environment.
Your Media
Watch or stream any type of existing media, including an immersive 360-degree experience and side-by-side 3D, in crisp detail.
Plug and Play
The Avegant Glyph plugs into any HDMI-supported device and delivers your existing content in lifelike, crystal clear quality.
Sense of Place
The Avegant Glyph lets you see above and below the visual field, so you can easily orient yourself to your surroundings and not give up spatial awareness.

    Avegant AG101 reviews

    Glyph Portable Personal Theater Video Headset is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 6.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coolest headset ever!! I initially purchased this for my husband to fly his 3DR Solo Drone with. His constant complaint was that with his phone or tablet the glare from the sun was not letting him actually see where he was flying. I was reading a forum where someone mentioned this headset and so I started doing some research. I found this to be the best answer to his problem. The headset was supposed to be for Christmas and was delivered the first of December....guess who got the package early? I said what the heck and gave it to him. He couldn't believe that I could have found something that suited his needs. He loves it!! Score another one for the wife giving the best Christmas present!!

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Best screen, bad fit Hi, I've been pushing off buying this kind of product for at least 2 years. I wanted to be able to watch movies without disturb ing my wife so I got her to buy them for me this year for Chrismas. I did all the research. The main advantage this headset has is that you really can't see the pixels. The resolution is great and the audio is also pretty good. Also, since I use my cell phone (sony Z5) as the video source, it was important for me to be able to see the cell phone screen to be able to use the touch function. This item does all of that without complaints. Maybe the only complaint is that it's too bright, especially when there's a lot of white on the screen. The bad: 1) The fit. It's terrible. I have sennheiser wireless headsets and I can watch movies for hours with those. These need some serious help. Since it's meant to be used as headphones (bad idea), the speakers have a round cushion. That means they're not really over-ear headphones, they're half over-ear and half on-ear. My ears end up hurting a lot with these after a while. Also, the frame is too stiff, so they put some real pressure on your years. The adjustment only helps to move the lenses away from your eyes. Also, without the optional brace that goes over your head, way too much pressure is applied on you nose. These guys should've researched headphone design more before designing these. 2) The lenses. The lenses have several flaws. First they're too small. The size is important since smaller lenses have to be closer to the eye for you to be able to see the whole screen, and the position of the lenses becomes more important. If you don't adjust the lenses properly, you won't be able to see the whole screen without distortion on the edges. It's already really difficult to get a good fit with these, but adjusting the lenses makes it even more difficult. The in-out adjustment of the lenses has clicks which make things worse when trying to adjust them. Second since they're adjustable, they're really wobbly. The wobbly part really makes it difficult adjust them properly. Last but not least, the lenses have an annoying glare to them, and no, it doesn't have to do with external light. It's an optical glare of some sort, probably when the lens is not properly adjusted, or because there's light being reflected from the inner walls of where the secreen is (see next point). 3) When you look through the lenses, you can see how the screen is mounted. In my opinion, you should just be able to see screen and nothing else. Everything else should be black; it is not. The technology is really promising, but I wish I would've waited another year. These guys need to learn how to make headsets still.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Useful, I'm waiting for the next model There is a lot of to improve, but for now it is the best device of this type on the market. The device is quite right for watching the videos, and I did not find it unbearably uncomfortable. I tested it also by viewing the internet web pages and I tried to use it with the word processor. The text is sharp and writing is properly legible for the most part, except for the edges of the image. The remedy I found is pushing the headset left or right to put these margins in focus.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best goggles I have used for FPV with P4P I use these with the DJI P4P. They are excellent, and even with my old eyes I don't need glasses. I upgraded to these from the Headplay, and am very happy. There are a few subtle details that could be improved, like the FOV for each could stand to be slightly wider, the diopter range slightly more positive, the headset slightly less crackly stiff, and finally, have an option to pass through outside sound.
