IWEAR AV920 DRIVER
Completing the visor section are two easily removable speakers earphones which are flexible and can be bent to an extent to your particular head measurements. The outer packaging claims the AVs twin x LCD screens create a virtual 62 inch screen and while measuring such a claim is difficult, the relative closeness of the image when viewed with the glasses certainly does look big. After some trial and error I did manage to find a position that felt much better than before but in all honesty, I was never completely comfortable – again, from a visual sense. The next morning we connected up the supplied Vuzix portable DVD player and played the supplied 3D test disc. I sat back down and had a more determined go at adjusting the glasses to fit my particular head. Luckily, short of some pretty radical surgery, Vuzix support offered a few more plausible options like trying once more to again adjust the angle at which the LCDs pointed towards my eyes by pivoting the temples in conjunction with placing the bridge in upside down.

The inner portion surrounding the actual LCDs are a more ordinary matte plastic black.

I sat back down and had a more determined go at adjusting the glasses to fit my particular head. Playing Rez HD, for example looked very much like the low resolution Dreamcast version of yesteryear which really polarized my opinion of the iWear AVs.
Maybe I was going for too much, too soon: We changed our XBOX settings to try and fix this issue but after a number of attempts, found no way to get a correct image. The glasses are finished in two tone black, with the most outwardly visible parts finished in a stylish gloss black. The outer packaging claims the AVs twin x LCD screens create a virtual 62 inch screen and while measuring such a claim is difficult, the relative closeness of the image when viewed with the glasses certainly does look big.
The glasses themselves look – for want of a better word – cool. The temples pivot 15 degrees and the hypo-allergenic nosepiece bridge offers up to 9. While my personal experience wasn’t stellar – most probably due to my inherent incompatibility with the AV glasses, others who tried the glasses were far more positive.
I decided to step down to some more familiar 2D DVD content.

I say okay because running the usual p goodness into the Vuzix glasses really put them in their place. While permanently connected via cable, the unit can a920 be described as having two distinct parts.
While this may sound heavy compared to my old Oakley Half Jackets 20gI can happily report the AVs feel rather light and comfortable when sitting on your nose.
Inside I found a small box marked iWear AV video eyewear, a Vuzix branded portable DVD player, a few cables and a light shield – a light shield being an attachment that connects to the glasses to block out unwanted light.
The way the AVs have been designed allows for both the bridge and temples to be easily moved to create a range of sitting positions.
The next morning we connected up the supplied Vuzix portable DVD player and played the supplied 3D test disc. The glasses are futuristic in their design and concept, but the image quality is akin to older standard definition content.
While some of this was partly due to my interpupillary distance – watching the image with one eye drastically improved quality for me – I would compare the overall image quality to that of a budget big screen LCD. As I thought the unit may be defective, I decided to call Vuzix support.

Iweat this is mostly due to the technological limitations of packing so much into so little a space, it is still a concern to those currently enjoying High Definition content. The clarity and loudness was such, that placing these speakers just beneath my ear hole provided an acceptable and really quite comfortable experience.
Part of the top of the image was doubled at the bottom of the screen as if caused by a mismatch of widescreen and full screen settings. With these new settings I watched some more videos and after a while got relatively used to the view. Iweaar, as I relaxed, I became increasingly aware of the actual image quality.
Read on for our real life review of a pair of AV video glasses. The flexing of the speakers was a little haphazard and they would not stretch to fit my ear but this proved to be of no consequence.

While 3D content did appear mildly 3D I found the actual picture difficult to tune in to and it felt like I was really concentrating hard to see the image. Despite this, we threw on some games which evidenced some LCD blurring but otherwise worked okay. In completely unscientific measurements, the screen size compared favourably to sitting a few metres away from our 50 inch Pioneer plasma reference set. In a bit of random testing I closed one eye and noticed a drastic improvement in clarity – in fact, when viewing the two LCDs individually closing one eye at a time I noticed that one was a lot darker and unfocused than the other.
Luckily, short of some pretty radical surgery, Vuzix support offered a few more plausible options like trying once more to again adjust the angle at which the LCDs pointed towards my eyes by pivoting the temples in conjunction with placing the bridge in upside down. A similarly rubberised bridge sits the glasses gently on your nose. It was also intimated that a firmware update would likely be released to allow for adjustment of the left and right LCDs independently.
We found this pack to be able to power the glasses for approximately five hours on one charge. Physically, the actual glasses felt almost as comfortable as my Oakleys. Pity nobody told Vuzix.
