Our take on the Myvu Crystal

by Ralph Graves

Enjoy your iPod's videos in private — even on a crowded airplane. The Myvu Crystal personal media viewer may look like a pair of ultra-modern sunglasses, but its built-in optical system displays your downloaded TV shows and movies in bright color and crisp detail. A single cord with an in-line controller connects the rugged, lightweight viewer to your iPod, keeping the setup streamlined and simple.

A clear view — anytime, anywhere
Two slightly angled screens inside the viewer create the illusion of a single video image "floating" in the center of your field of view. You can still see around the video image through the viewer's tinted frame, so you remain aware of your surroundings. The Crystal has the sharpest picture quality of any Myvu viewer, with the equivalent of 640 x 480 resolution.

In-ear headphones
The viewer's attached headphones feature soft, rubber sleeves that fit comfortably in your ears. They also help reduce outside noise, allowing you to listen at lower volume levels. And you get three different sizes of removable sleeves, for the best fit possible.

Controls and connectivity
A handy in-line controller lets you adjust volume as well as image brightness. Just plug the viewer into your iPod's docking port and you're ready to go. A rechargeable battery built into the controller powers the Crystal, delivering up to four hours of operation, and preventing an excessive drain on your iPod's battery.
