Intro: I remember seeing the first Glasstron LCD headset and thought how cool it would be to own one. Unfortunately those days it ran for $1,000 or so. Now with costs cheaper than before Myvu has presented in present day several LCD headset that won’t break the bank. Here are review the MyVu Personal Media Player Solo Plus Edition.
Design: The design of the Myvu is futuristic and stylish. It’s well constructed in all black with built in earphones. The LCD headset is mostly made of plastic but seems to be of decent quality. I think many have compared the design to Cyclops eyewear in X-men.
Function: The MyVu Solo Plus Edition is not going to win any awards for top notch picture quality. But I say it is of decent quality for its price. Sound is also decent but not anything too great. Overall the quality of video and sound is average. This is expected with a bargain $199 price tag. Documentation is a bit lacking so I would suggest you go to the official site to view the pdf manual which better than what’s included. The MyVu solo plus Edition is compatible with the iPod Touch, iPod Nano 3rd Gen, iPod classic (which is the unit I tested it on), iPod 5th generation.
Conclusion: The MyVu Solo Plus Edition is a perfect ideal travel solution for kids on long road trips. Also if travel a lot you can get away with carrying these around when a television is not available to watch your iPod encoded videos. For its price the MyVu is a bargain. I expect the technology in LCD headset to improve so definitely can’t wait to see what MyVu has in the future. With that being said while not perfect I still think the MyVu Solo Plus Edition is a good value to any iPod owners.
