brand new but taken out of the pkg & brand new longer life battery installed paired up with 2 additional chargers, 1 for wall plug & the other for car lighter. Also includes universal adapters for all composite video devices.

Seller Warranty Description
Directions for these Myvu viewers: Be sure you use the red video cable end & plug it into a working composite analog video output device to see if your getting signal in the glasses, the light must be solid blue to confirm they are charged & getting video signal. Charging is a slow flashing yellow light on the pendant, A fast flashing yellow light means that the charger is not working correctly & should be discarded or recycled. We can mail you replacements if this happens in a 3 month period. You need to charge the battery from the wall plug for 4hrs atleast to fully charge it, this is why we give away free ragecams chargers to help you have multiple charging options. Important note: The myvu has been very popular to users because of the large screen size display & comfortable fit. It is literally impossible to find these days working brand new right out of the box. Because the battery is totally fried & unusable. We has a battery developed for this model & we open up the pendant & re install a new longer life battery since all these myvu glasses when we purchased them brand new sealed had bad non charging batteries from being in storage for years & never were charged to make it alive. We replace the battery for you & also give you 2 free high current fast charging car/ac wall heads, instead of using the usb port on a computer which is not the same charging power. Before use: You need to charge the battery from the wall plug for 4hrs atleast to fully charge it, this is why we give away free ragecams chargers to help you have multiple charging options.

I recently purchased a set of these. Personal video glasses are a difficult item to purchase because it's very hard to find a store that carries them, let alone lets you try them on before purchase, so I wasn't quite sure what to expect.

First impression out of the box: these glasses are amazingly tiny and lightweight. The branches fold up, and they can very easily fit into a jacket pocket. That's a very important point when it comes to a device meant to travel a lot: you will not think twice about carrying them, unlike a DVD player.

I found the descriptions of what you see in the glasses quite misleading: the panels are actually collimated at about a foot in front of your eyes, so the illusion is quite similar to watching the screen in the seat in front of you on an airplane. It's perfectly acceptable, but falls short of the pompous comparisons to watching a 44" big screen from 9 feet away. The field of view may be identical, but the focusing isn't.

The Myvu glasses do not isolate you, as you can very easily see around the virtual screen. This is probably good to address a common problem with immersive VR goggles, which tend to make the user nauseous and disoriented. On the downside, this makes them more difficult to watch in very bright ambient light conditions. Also, switching between the virtual screen and the "outside world" is difficult because of the short focusing distance of the screen.

Finally, I was surprised to find out watching videos through the goggles did not significantly reduce battery life compared to watching them on the iPod screen directly. You will want to get some sort of high capacity USB battery pack if you want to be able to watch more than a couple of movies on one charge, though.

I just purchased the myvu Solo Plus and this thing is really pretty cool. I got it as a birthday present for my son who's surgically attached to his Nano iPod but I think we're going to battle over it! The myvu glasses let you watch any video that's on your iPod only it's like watching it on a regular tv and, most importantly, it's private. No more having to hold the iPod in your hand and watch movies on that little screen.

With my son's permission, I took the myvu glasses with me on a flight the other day. I just connected the myvu glasses to my iPod (which is an older model iPod but I guess the myvu works with all of them), put them on, and I'm in my own little movie-world. And no more "neighbors" seated next to me craning their necks to see what I'm looking at - although someone was very curious and asked me what the glasses were - call it "myuvu envy"! The battery lasts for about 4 hours so there's plenty of time to watch a full-length movie.

I'm definitely not a gadget girl - little too old for that - but these glasses are so fun and easy to use I guess I'm just going to have to get one of these for myself

This is a video where I talk about how I use the my-vu as well as how I rigged it to fit my spare glasses and some other things I like about it. I have had this product for about two years now.

This product works very well. The instructions are poor. You need to go to the myvu website and download the more helpful pdf version. Remember to charge it as soon as you open the package. There is a small rubber usb flap on the pendant control. Lift the flap and a usb connector is underneath. This product is well worth the money!!

If you get this expecting to be wowed by the size of the screen, you will be disappointed. The screen size is literally like having an ipod video screen (Or in my case a Sony Video Walkman) shoved within a few inches of your eyes.

Video quality is decent but as long as the picture is clear, I really am not too particular on the resolution.

Ease of use is remarkably easy, I really don't see anyone having trouble operating these.

One major complaint though, is that it takes some experimenting to get the glasses to sit just right so you aren't cross-eyed.

I only recommend getting these after you have done full research on the pros and cons and you are completely sure of what you getting yourself into should you decide these are for you. Just to clarify I did enough research to know that these are not the very best, but good enough for the price I bought them for.

Bottom line: if you like gadgets that do what they are supposed to do, and don't mind a few flaws then go right head and get these. These make for a great travel companion but not a great theater addition. So get these if you want a cool gadget, but pass em by if you want a theater quality experience.

The glasses work great! Obviously as technology improves so will the resolution, but for now I'm pleased with the quality. I did as much research I could since video glasses are fairly new and found these to have the best review. I'm actually surprised how lightweight they are and don't take much space at all. The only warning I have is be prepared to have people asking a lot of questions. I travel quite a bit and these are a great addition to my ipod.
