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...

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...
