Avegant's Glyph Is The Next Generation Of Headphones : You Can Watch Movies With It


Watching movies and shows through a headset is definitely going to happen for all of us at a certain point in the near future. You may think it’ll be a VR headset, like Oculus and Vive,  the future may be a lot more like Avegant's Glyph

The Glyph is a multimedia viewer that’s the same size wiy your average set of over-the-ear headphones. In fact, it is really  a set of headphones — only that it's more capable of much more than cranking the volume to 11 and grooving to jams.

Inside each Glyph are two small eye pieces, chock-full of millions of ‘micro mirrors’ that provide a resolution that can be compared to that of a high-end movie theater. This movie theater, though, fits neatly in a carry-on bag and makes an excellent travel companion.

Once it’s plugged into your phone, you adjust each eyepiece independently — both distance and focus — until it looks like one giant screen. It takes only a second to get it right, but once you do the experience is seamless and looks every bit as good as  watching a movie at Spa.

We all will be watching movies — at least occasionally — through headsets like these at some point in the future. Think of it as an MP3 player — we won’t listen to all of our music with it, but it certainly has its place.

Currently, Avegant is the best option. Oculus and Vive are capable of playing movies, but between the bulk, wires, and the need to be plugged into a PC — they’re not great travel options. Avegant’s Glyph is.

The Glyph costs  $549, and you can grab one at Avegant’s website.
