Avegant Glyph Headset Combines Headphones with Slick Eye Display

Avegant is currently in the process of refining their Glyph Alpha prototype into the consumer version conceptually rendered above. Those who pre-order a Glyph will get a lightweight, ergonomic device tuned for consumer use and with both support and a warranty. It'll be identical to the consumer device on store shelves — only delivered far before we start fulfilling those orders. Be the first in your community to start your Glyph story.  

The sleek Glyph looks indistinguishable from other luxury headphones, except it has eyepieces integrated within the headband. Whenever you want to use the display, you simply swing it down over your eyes without having to take the pads off your ears. We wouldn't be surprised is Glyph arises as one of Oculus Rift's major contenders because personally, we much prefer this design—yes, we know they aren't the same exactly, but close enough—and we can't wait to get our hands on one.

You can preorder a Glyph now for $499 (it jumps up to $599 after January 15) for an expected fall 2015 shipping date.
