In a world where technology keeps pushing the boundaries of what’s possible, Xreal steps into the limelight with its latest offering, the Xreal Air 2 and Air 2 Pro augmented reality glasses. Set to hit the shelves in November, these remarkable devices are designed to change the way you see and interact with the world.
A New Perspective
These glasses are not your typical AR experience. Unlike many augmented reality glasses out there, Xreal’s Air 2 and Air 2 Pro are not equipped with cameras for tracking or recording your surroundings. Instead, they focus on a single, spectacular goal: transforming your field of vision into a larger-than-life screen. These glasses essentially bring the big screen experience directly to your face.
The Air 2 glasses feature Micro OLED displays that project a crisp and vibrant 1920 x 1080 pixel display right in front of your eyes. This level of detail and clarity ensures your content is as immersive as it can be. They are an incremental upgrade from the original Air glasses, boasting a 10% reduction in weight and thickness while delivering a brighter image at 500 nits compared to their predecessor’s 400 nits.
Comfort is paramount, and Xreal has improved the temple and nose pads, ensuring a snug and pleasant fit during extended wear. Additionally, they have redesigned the audio system to deliver sound more directly into your ears, keeping your personal experience truly personal.
The Pro Difference
For those who crave more control over their visual experience, the Air 2 Pro is the ideal choice. Starting at $449, these glasses introduce dimming control using electrochromatic glass. You can seamlessly adjust the amount of light allowed through the glasses, going from full transparency to a blackout tint. This feature adds a layer of versatility that enhances the user experience.
Availability and Compatibility
Xreal is all about making sure you can enjoy your cinematic experience on your own terms. The Air 2 glasses use a USB-C cable with USB-C or HDMI output to connect to a wide range of supported devices, including the Valve Steam Deck, Asus ROG Ally, Nintendo Switch, Xbox, PlayStation, iOS and Android devices, and PCs and Macs. They essentially function as external monitors, making them compatible with a multitude of devices.
A Dash of Style
The design of these glasses is a testament to Xreal’s commitment to combining style and functionality. Available in graphite gray or carmine red, you can pick the one that suits your taste. For those who like a touch of personalization, there’s an option to add an adhesive skin available in six distinctive colors: navy blue, royal blue, verdigris, dale dogwood, jonquil, and dartmouth green.
Xreal’s Air 2 AR glasses are set to redefine your visual experience. While they may not offer the world-tracking capabilities of some AR glasses, their focus on delivering a larger, brighter, and more comfortable screen is sure to captivate users looking for a personal cinematic experience. With sleek design and broad compatibility, these glasses are ready to usher you into a new dimension of visual entertainment.
Xreal’s commitment to simplicity and usability sets them apart in the world of augmented reality, and the absence of passthrough video feed means you won’t miss out on the real world around you. Whether you’re gaming, watching movies, or simply exploring virtual spaces, the Xreal Air 2 and Air 2 Pro are ready to be your window to a bigger, brighter world.
Get ready for a November release in the US, UK, Germany, France, and Italy, as Xreal’s groundbreaking glasses hit the market with a promise to transform how you see and interact with technology.
